Nokia :: E63 WLAN Access Point "missing" When Connection Already Open
Feb 4, 2010
I have an E63 with version 400.21.013 firmware. However, I have experienced this problem from day one. I do not have a data plan but I use WLAN at various locations, and there is a list of access points in the Settings.I have a home access point configured with WPA2 and I have all the settings saved in the Connection Manager (or is it WLAN Wizard - I don't know). When the phone is not connected to any AP and I use a program that wants data, it will almost always show the "Home" AP in the list which appears right after "Searching for available access points" is briefly displayed. "Home" shows up right below Search for WLAN. There is no problem making the first connection.However, if the "Home" AP is already in use and I open another program that wants data, at times it will not show my Home AP in the list. If "Searching for available access points" is only displayed for a split second, "Home" will not be in the list. Sometimes I can close the program and open it again and if "Searching for available access points" stays on screen for about a second, then "Home" will be on the list and I can connect. Sometimes I will have to try 3, 4, 5 times, and sometimes it will never "see" the AP unless I disconnect the WLAN and start all over.Right at this moment, there is no problem. I can open program after program and connect via my "Home" AP. But it is frustrating when it does happen. Has anyone seen this or found a remedy?
I have defined my WLAN as the primary internet access point. Incidentally, the E72 terms the WLAN connection point "infrastructure". My wife's E63 uses the slightly more reassuring "known". Despite the WLAN being the number 1 priority access point, when using the www application the 3G connection is launched if the applications settings are set to "automatic". If I use "always ask", oddly the WLAN internet access point does not show up in the list. The 3G connection does twice. Once as an internet access point, and with a slightly different name for a WAP connection (not sure what the point of the WAP connection is, but too scared to delete it). I can "Search for WLAN" which without fail always finds my home network, which is selectable, and can be used without problem.
There appears to be a glitch in that the defined WLAN access point is not and cannot be recognised as an automatic connection point, but is easily used when manually selected. Perhaps a WLAN setting is wrong making the automatic connection fall over? Happy to entertain any advice. The phone is completely up to date with firmware.
I've setup my wlan access in Internet destination. In this destination I set up wlan as priority 1 and mobile data as priority 2.Phone keeps moving wlan from Internet to Uncategorised destination. If I move it back to Internet it stays for some time and goes back to Uncategorised. Sometimes it happens while browsing. I want to go back one page and phone will show that it can't find the address. Have to go to settings and move it back to Internet destination. Ad nauseam. Did not have this problem on N8. My phone has static IP address on my home modem.
Control Panel -> Settings -> Connection -> Destinations
When i thy to add new wireless or packet AP, "Settings" application hangs and i can't do nothing, even close Settings.
After reboot the same situation. Phone bought in Russia, in the Nokia shop, in november 2009. Software version: 022.007 Software version date: 10-dec-2009 Custom version: 022.007.c00.01 Language set: 20.01 Model: E72-1 Latest update: 14/1/2010
I've gone in to settings / general / service info and changed the access point to my wireless network. When I sync mail it still uses my 3g I've removed the mailbox and re setup but it still refuses to use the AP I specify.
When I choose free Wi-Fi to browse internet or download, X6 confirms the use of free service, but I still get charge from my phone carrier.It seems I can not change the 1st priority of connection.How I can able to choose which network to use?
I've recently purchased an X6, it's a great phone. The only problem I'm having is sorting out the connection settings for my emails (under the Messaging menu). I don't seem to be able to select an access point. My default connection is my home WLAN In my Internet access point the priorities are:
1. Home WLAN 2. 3G 3. GPRS
This works perfectly for all other apps and the internet; but under Options > Settings > Email > Mailboxes > *select mailbox* > Connection settings > Incoming e-mail > Access Point in use. I can only select specific connections, there doesn't appear to be any option to select my Internet access point? It's currently set to "Default Connection" which means it uses my WLAN nicely. But when I leave the house it doesn't work without manually navigating through all those options above which is pretty inconvenient. Am I missing something, or do I really need to do that each time I leave the house and return?
I have a wireless LAN access point on my phone that is draining my battery because it always seems to be trying to connect to it. I do not want this access point but because the phone thinks it is connected (it can't be because it was over 1 mile from my current location) it will not let me delete it. How can I delete this access point?
History: Always Nokia since 1994 including Nokia 2140, 7110e, 6150, 6210, 6310i, 6230i Current: Nokia N82 (with Access to a 5800XM)
I have WhatsApp V2.8.8 installed.What happens is that, sometimes it connects using mms access point and the phone becomes very slow.I need to disconnect the mms connection to avoid slowdown!!This happened with all WhatsApp versions.How to delete mms access point?
I have been using Inernet Radio happily on my e63 for some time on the vodafone network in Australia and frequently listened over GPRS.I recently signed up to Telstra and the first time I started Internet Radio after inserting my new SIM I received a "terms and conditions" notice - as if this was the first time I was using it.
Now, only my WIFI access points and Telstra MMS are showing up in the available access points for internet radio - I can't see the Telstra Internet access point so I'm no longer able to to listen to Internet Radio over GPRS!!
Bascially, I need to know how to delete a wireless access point. My phone is obsessed with using a Wifi access point called Spectrum (I once used it to connect at some motorway services).It is the default access point and nothing I do will change it!I have tried reseting the phone, but makes no difference!Any ideas?
I changed the outgoing default connection in E55 here: menu. email. settings. mymailbox. mailbox settings. advanced mailb settings.outgoing mail settings. access point in use. user defined
now when i do a email message it doesnt send when i choose send in any new email message. it seems a bug, because it does not quit of the send option, it appears a little window sending email, but it does not send. then if i try to get out the only options are delete/save to drafts.
I've installed Nokia Messaging and configured my e-mail account. Even though I think I set it up properly it just will not disconnect from my WiFi access point - even when the application is turned off and I manually close the internet connection it just keeps on reconnecting. I need an application I can use to check my email once or twice a week, not something that drains the hell out of my (already **bleep**) battery. Is there anything I can do, or should I replace Nokia Messaging with something else?
I have to use two access points. One for Nokia Messaging and the second one for other apps. Although it's cumbersome I'm managing, but the native web browser always chooses the wrong access point without giving me any option to choose the other. How can I make it choose the other access point?
I just got the 5230 and am having trouble connecting to the net . i have had the settings from o2 uk sent to me but every time i try to connect to ovi, web browser, and to set up email , it says invalid packet data access point . now i have no idea what that means , but its annoying.can someone give me some help please.
i updated to v 31.0.101 today in order to download the ovi maps stuff, and now under Connectivity there is no longer an option for WLAN!? How do I get wireless back? I'd rather not update if it means having internet (no data plan).
Ok so here is the deal, I'm using up-to-date(v. 20.0.080) nokia 5530 and today while I was using TuneWiki my WLAN got disconnected. So I tried to reconnect and found my wifi option completely gone. Now I can't even try to connect to WLAN, as if wifi option was disabled or erased. I already tried restarting the phone, resetting phone to original settings, removing battery for a while. I don't know what to do, so if someone dealt with similar problem please help or at least advice me what should I do next.
when I want to connect to a wlan it says that a connection is already active and i need to close it to connect but no connection is active.I hard reseted it and putted the new software on but still the same problem,can you put a smile on my face?
I just bought a Nokia 5800 XM. However, there seems to be a problem with WLAN connectivity. The phone can successfully search for available networks, and when I choose "Connect" the WLAN icon appears at the top right corner (as if it successfully connected). But, when I try to use the web browser, it pops up connectivity options (as if it is not connected to any WLAN network even though the antenna icon is there). I can choose the same WLAN from the options, but then it says "connection already active" and fails. When I open connection manager it doesn't list any active connections. A strange situation! I've upgraded its software to the latest version but that didn't solve the problem. Any ideas why this may be happening and how to solve it?
I bought my wife an E72 yeasterday. After we charged the battery up and turned it on, everything seemed to work alright. I set up the WLAN connection on my wireless at home, and I tested the use of Facebook, MySpace, etc. Her SIM card needs to be topped up, so the phone keeps saying "SIM Registration Failed." We're going to top it up this morning, so no worries about that. This morning she tried using the Facebook app, but instead of conecting via WLAN, it says "Connecting via IDEAS" which is the Singtel SIM card here in Singapore. I've manually connected to my Wifi network here, and even went to the connection manager to set the priority to 1. The app still doesn't connect via WLAN, and instead tries to use the SIM. When she does top up her card, this could be a quick money waster, especially when we have an abundance of Wifi connectivity so how do I get the web-based apps to use WLAN over anything else?
I got the nokia E72, and i have a wlan connection at home, so it always connects automaticaly and downloads the emails, and the wlan connection symbol is always on in the bottom of the screen, how to turn this off? cos it will consume more battery power
I've a Nokia C3-00 and Sitecom WL-174 Wireless Network ADSL 2+ Modem Router 54g TURBO.
The WiFi/Modem router is working fine with PC but not with my C3-00. I'm sure there is no issue of access protection mechanism ( I switched Off psswd and MAC filter to be sure). My C3-00 see the router and initiate the protocol to get IP address from the router but it fails : "connesione WLAN non riuscita"
I'm quite sure the issue is in a sort of not compatibility between the router DHCP and the mobile because I experienced same issue with Nokia E51 on which I sorted out assigning statip IP address to it.
The issue with Nokia C3-00 is that there is no way to assign static IP Address from menu. I tried to contact Nokia support but no answer . even at the Nokia service in my town (Catania) they don't know how to do it .
I am a E63 user....the WLAN scanning suddenly stoped actually i was using an app for my phone,Upvise i wanted to cut the wifi connection i did so by going to connectivity>conn. mgr. and killed the connection after that i am uable to scan Wlan networks and when i go to WLAN wizard it shows 'system error'.
I have setup my emails with Email Wizard. I could read my emails several times through both GPRS and WLAN. But it happened and I couldn't read my email through my WLAN connection. It asks me the passwords of all mail accounts. I enter them and it says "Connecting" but then suddenly disconnects. I can browse internet with the regular browser, there is no problem. But what is the problem with the e-mail application? How can i fix this?
Every time I take my keylock off, the phone id asking me to "select connection" between "search for WLAN", "Internet" or " WAP services." Seems to make no difference to the operation of the phone whichever I select, or if I click Cancel.
When I select a WiFi network from the E72 home page, it shows me the option to "Start web browsing".(The other 2 options at this stage are "Search for WLAN" and "Switch WLAN scan off". When I select the option to "Start web browsing", I get a list of bookmarks for the browser. But when I select any of those bookmarks, I get an error message "WLAN: WLAN connection already active. Close it and try again". Has anyone seen this before ? Any clues as to how to solve this?
