Re: N8,E72,X6,C6 same wifi "Invalid server name" Problem

Hi, I also have nokia C6-01. Trying to connect to net using wifi via laptop always gave me the invalid server name error. but now I know what was missing in the setting. all you need to do is to specify the DNS server. and its done.

 

How to do that?

 

step 1: setup the wlan first.

a) on laptop(windows 7), switch on the wlan.

b) Start > Control panel > Network and internet > View network status and task .

c) Change adapter settings(on the left panel) > right click 'Wireless Network Connection' > Properties.

d) Now select Internet Protocol version 4 (IPv4) > Click Properties > Use the following IP address:

 

e) now type the following:

 

IP Address : 192.168.137.1

Subnet mask : 255.255.255.0

Default gateway :  leave blank

 

Prefered dns server : leave blank

Alternate dns server : leave blank

 

now click ok > ok > close

 

f)  Start > Control panel > Network and internet > View network status and task .

g) Manage wireless networks > Add > Create an ad hoc network> Next .

h) Give network name "wifi" ( without quotes)

i) security type "wep"

j) security key  "1q2w3" ( Any 5 character passeword)

k) check save this network

l) next> close

 

now for mobile setting

 

a) menu> settings> Connectivity> Settings > destinations > Internet> option > New access point.

b) select yes when asked for autometic check.

c) select WLAN> select wifi> key in the security key (here 1q2w3)> ok

d) select wifi> option > Advanced settings> IPv4 settings >

e) Phone IP address > 192.168.137.2

     Subnet mask > 255.255.255.0

     Default gateway > 192.168.137.1

     Primary DNS Address: 192.168.137.1

     Secondary DNS address : 0.0.0.0

 

back>back>back>back>....

 

and you are done. If you have internet access on your laptop. you will have same internet access on your nokia mobile.

 

enjoy :smileyhappy:

 

let me know if any problem is faced after this. we will then go with more detailed process.

good luck.

Your IP addresses are specific to your setup and can not be used by another. The best solution is always to use DHCP if possible.

Re: N8,E72,X6,C6 same wifi "Invalid server name" Problem

Agreed....

But this setup was given to them who want to use their personal Laptops as a wifi hotspot(and DHCP doesn't work) .

If one has more than one laptop and more than 1 phone, one can always specify the IP address as follows:

for laptop: 192.168.xxx.1   (xxx<256)

for mobiles : 192.168.xxx.y  (y is anything greater than 1)

 

xxx will derermine the connection to perticular laptop.
