nokia 5530 internet problems (wifi)

I have a nokia 5530 expressmusic with firmware 20.0.080 (latest version on date of posting).

I connect with it to the internet via wifi. Typically, the first page loads fine. However the second page often fails to load, especially if it is not a very tiny website. Clicking on a button does typically also fails. Note that this also happens when browsing the ovi store, which should clearly be fully compatible with the nokia browser.

 

Some examples:

For the ovi store, this typically means I can get to the page of recommended applications, but I cannot download one. when I'm lucky, I can get up to the place where I have to enter my account info.

 

for the site "webmail.telenet.be"

the site loads, I can enter my nickname and password and sometimes get a warning about the fact that it is a secure site and the question to remember my password. After which I get the error "no gateway reply".

 

Directly after the previous errorI browse to www.wikipedia.org (the phone asks me gain to connect to the wifi network)

The site loads wellI type in the word "radar" and select the search function. The phone does something (As I can now select to stop loading the page" ), but I do not get to the next page. "no gateway reply"

 

I tried youtube (via the dedicated icon provided by nokia): same issue: first page loads, pressing the search button gets a no gateway reply.

 

In general, I get 3 cases:

- the phone keeps showing the progress bar for such a long time that in the end, I run out of patience

- I get the error "no gateway reply"

- The progress bar appears and after some time disappears again without any resulting action

 

 

I checked the following things:

 

- wifi connection: reception is optimal. Other wifi equipment has no problems at all (laptops, logitech duet controller, etc). In addition, the first web page often loads well, showing that a working connection is present.

- I installed opera mini (via my computer :-) )to see whether the issue is browser related, but with opera, I experience similar problems.

- different days, different hours of the day: same issue

- acces ovi via link in the applications, via the mobile site or via the regular site: always problems

 

 

Anyone an idea where things go wrong and how to solve this?

 

kind regards

Re: nokia 5530 internet problems (wifi)

Hello, i was having the same problem as you. The solution is very simple and you need to configure nothing.

Using the web browser by Wi-Fi is like using a laptop in a wireless modem, you only need to know the last 4 digits of your local

gateway (modem), and, in one side of the modem are always a numeric code in parentheses or brackets (this will be your

password), only select among the available networks to connect wich match with the last 4 numbers of the modem and use the

numeric code in it as the password and you will connect without problems, that's all.

 

If you try to connect in a public site is the same method, only asks for data connection (and you'll receive the last 4 digits of the

modem and the numeric pass) and it will be done.

 

I hope this works for all the people.

 

Best regards, Mike

Mikje, thanks for the reply.

I do however not fully understand your reply.

if you talk about the last four digits, do you mean the IP address of the wifi router? Or the MAC address? Or the SSID (which is not with numbers my system, but I can of course change this)?

Re: nokia 5530 internet problems (wifi)

problem solved: you need to disable the power saving settings for wifi. A google search should tell you how to do this. see for instance http://www.deciphered.net/blog/2007/06/18/howto_fix_wifi_dropouts_nokia_n95

 

Apparently, I'm far from the only one with this problem, on different nokia phones. So, I can only hope that Nokia takes this bug serious and tries to solve the issue.

Re: nokia 5530 internet problems (wifi)

I have nokia 5530 with Firmware ver 20.0.080.231.03, I have problem connecting to internet via WiFi with Access point set to "Internet", I get "Connection not available" error

 

  When the access point is set as 'Always Ask' I am able to browse and download the apps from Ovi store. but when i change the access point to internet (to connect via my router) it gives me this error and i am not able to browse or download anything but Opera Mini browser works fine with this setting (i think the Access point setting is specific to the Nokia default browser)

 

   It took me 2 days to finally figure out this workaround.Please let me know if there is any fix for this. Hope this workaound helps you.

 

PS: To Change access point goto

Menu >> Internet >> Web >> Options >> Settings >> General >> Access point

Re: nokia 5530 internet problems (wifi)

Hi there.
I have exactly the same problem, I use a wireless router, Netgear DGBN2100 or something. My isp is talktalk.
From what I have been told by computer nerds (I myself am a computer nerd but some of my other friends are nerds too), Netgear is not great, especially as the N and N+ routers suffer WIFI ”spasm's” every fortnight. Even now as I am writing this a pop up message is coming up saying 'CONNECTION TO WLAN LOST'.
And talktalk *sigh*, If your isp is talktalk, then don't blame the router for being faulty. I have a 5530XM and have not watched a single youtube video since wednesday 10/11/2010, as everytime I connect to the network, It loses internet connection. THINGS GET WORSE when I stand just 1 METER AWAY FROM THE ROUTER!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! OMG!!!!!!!!!!!!!
My advice to some of you is that if your wireless routers have got the easy setup button, then go to Settings>Connectivity>Destinations and locate your wireless router and click Options>Delete.
Next, you should turn off your wireless router and configure your wireless router so that you have-
1- A cable coming directly from the communications port (That port in the wall where you get your internet and telephone signal internet from)
2- That wire from the wall attached to a filter
3- A doubler attached to the longer port and the two telephone wires connected, finishing the telephone circuit.
4- In the smaller squarish port on the filter there should be a cable connecting the wireless router to the internet.

Once that's done, turn on your wireless router, go to Settings>Connectivity>Destinations>add new acc. point. Connect to your access point using easy set up and put the phone right next to the router during the 20 second process. Everything should be alright then.
If you don't have the easy set up button on your wireless router then set up the connection the same way except you have to connect by entering the wep/pre shared/whatever key.
Thats all the advice I can give you now, I can't guarantee 100% that it'll work but I am trying my best to research this problem. When I find out the solution, then I will post it here.
Hope you learn something from this.
