I'm experiencing a very annoying problem with my e7.
I have a wifi connection with WPA2 in my house. I can connect to it with my device, but once I do something that requires downloading "high" amounts of data (browsing big pages, downloading files, downloading programs on OVI ), the connection is lost and then inmediately restarted; after around 4 seconds, the connection is dropped again and restarted .. and again and again.
So this happens periodically until whatever data has been downloaded completely, since the device is actually able to download data during those ~4 seconds of uptime until it's abruptly lost.
I fixed the problem by making another SSID with WPA1-only enabled, with this authorisation the connection works properly.
Mind you that I've also tried to no avail:
So, I'm calling out all e7 users to see if:
I think it might be 2, since I found this thread where N8 users describe a similar problem:
Sadly, I can't rule out 3 since I don't have another router laying around where I could test another WPA2 connection. But I can assure you that my E52 worked flawlessly before with my actual router.
I highly appreciate any insight regarding this matter, please post if you have any information or have experienced anything similar.
Have similar problem. Wireless at home works very slow and after few seconds I start browsing with my E7 my hole home network connection drops.very strange. All other phones nokia and htc I have don't have this problems. I am considering returning my E7 tomorow. I have it 3 days and I couldn't solve the problem
Same here. My E7 now sits in a drawer because of this problem. EVERY OTHER smartphone in the house works perfectly with my Virgin Netgear router with default WPA2 encryption.
It's a bug in Nokia's E7 Wi-fi system and it's driving me mad that it hasn't been fixed in Symbian Anna...... 8-(
I had a problem with 802.11N connections on a Mercury router not working on the E7. This seems to have solved it:
Wlan settings: Powersaving mode = disabled
Access point setting: WPA2 mode = enabled, Network security = WPA/WPA2
Now I can download large files without it disconnecting or timing out.
I had same problem on my E7+Belle.
I did hard reset (3 button reset). It erased everything except OS.
so, backup your phone - WITHOUT settings and aplication!.
reboot by hard reset. than you need to install all aplication like maps/store etc again. It will take some time, but your wifi will stay connected and you are able to download whatever you want.
yes, you're right.
there's no way how to fix it on your phone. you'll need to set up easier security type on your wifi router.
E7 is not able to keep good connection with WPA-PSK/WPA2-PSK2.
