WiFi in N73?

Hello Champs,

Anybody has any idea of WiFi enabling in N73, I saw many threads saying Symbion OS doesnt support WiFi, but any new findings on this? We got new firmware update recently for N73, so does that make any changes to our earlier findings on WiFi in N73?

Nokia, Pl try to have a WiFi in your upcoming firmware updates. I had seen many minus with lot of plus in N73. Try to overcome al the issues noted by customers to save N series.

Thanks,
Dileep.

Wi-Fi is nothing to do with software, it's all about hardware.

The N73 doesn't have the hardware to do wi-fi. It's a total impossibilty to enable wi-fi on a device that doesn't have the needed internal hardware.

Oh ok, Thanks, now I got it. Then do you think Nokia changed the hardware for later versions of N-Series like N95 to include wi-fi? In that case I don't have options to get wi-fi anyway, so I am planning to use bluetooth to connect to my laptop internet.

Lots of Nokia phones already have wifi capability such as the N80, N95, N82 etc etc. Most of the E series have wifi capability too. You just have to pick the correct models.

Re: WiFi in N73?

I know that we need to pick the right item, but some times we don't know item is right or not, only we will come to later if we see more righter item that our item doesnt have some features ! :-)

So now I am trying to fix this problem in my N73 which I bought some time back thinking this is right phone, so any body has any idea on how to make wi-fi capable on this phone so that I can make it right ? ;-)

Re: WiFi in N73?

It is totally impossible to make the N73 wi-fi compatible.

It doesn't have the hardware and nothing can be added to it.

The N73 was released around 18 months ago which was before wi-fi was common in phones.

If you want wi-fi you need to buy a newer model, simple as that.

Oh ! So sad ! :-(

But I have an alternative, in which I can make N73 work like N73 wifi.

1. Buy a bluetooth dongle.
2. Connect the bluetooth dongle to your laptop and enable bluetooth in N73.
3. Get internet in N73 through laptop.
(More info : http://web.singnet.com.sg/~kinston/Bluetooth%20Internet.htm)

(Note: But question is, if I have laptop and that has internet in it, why do I need internet in my mobile? he he hee! I have answer for this in my next thread. --- "Fring(VOIP) with Nokia N series")

I don't think that method works with the N73, but you can try it. I seem to remember it only works on really old S60v2 models like the N70, 6680 etc.

Obviously you will only be able to connect to your own computer and not to public wi-fi hotspots or wi-fi routers.
