Sony Ericsson :: W715 - WiFi Connection Failure / No Internet Access
Sep 27, 2010
I have a problem concerning my W715's WiFi. I enable it, find my router, but when I try to access internet my phone says "connection failure. check settings etc." I have went through every little setting, but still - no WiFi internet for me.
Newbie to the Forum (Hello all) Just got a new W995 - (however didn't want to pay for the data download limits for the internet) From what I hear you can surf T'interweb via wifi for free however when I log onto wifi I can't get an T'internet browser up Do I need some software from the all seeing god that is Sony Ericsson?
I just got my new Bold9700 and am trying to set it up and failing completely. Part of this may be because I am in Costa Rica. The primary problem is that it is connecting to a WiFi network, but not to a BlackBerry Internet Service. I have a data plan, I am linked to a network here (called I.C.E), and I am connected to a WiFi network, but it will not open due to the lack of Internet Service connection.
My phone is apparently locked, but I am using a USA SIM card, not a Costa Rican one. Do I need to unlock my phone in order to connect to the Internet Server here? As a result of this connection, I also cannot access email or set up BBM.
My sons Sony Ericsson W715i fell to ther floor and the front screen was cracked and the display became dark. Is it possible to change the glass (front screen) and display on W715i? How? Or does someone know how much it costs to repair it?
I have a W715 with GPS. Is there any software to download/use that make it possible for me to use the GPS without using the original program from SonyEricsson? I would like to use a GPS program where I maybe store all maps on my memory card and don't have to be online to use it.
I was just wondering if anybody knew if there was a way for me to change my phones language to Welsh. I've looked in the phones 'Language' menu and Welsh wasn't there but I was wondering if there was any other way to get the language into the phone (eg. by connecting to my computer and using an update service by Sony). I realize that this is unlikely and may not even exist but I really want Welsh on my phone. To clarify. I want to change the 'Phone language' and not the 'Writing language'. My phone is a W715.
I have Sony Ericsson W715 Walkman phone and I try to find a way to play and view my mp3 files in media player as their folder structure is when I copied them to phone memory card - but have had no luck. The problem is that most music I listen is in a mixed form - lots of folders (witch name i like to see and choose in the player) and each consist about 20 various songs. In player under "Music" menu are items like "Artists", "Albums", "Tracks"... but no Folders. I cannot find any folder that way as "Albums" menu shows album name in ID3 tag but my folder structure is different (in one folder songs ID3 has different album name). So I have like 500 artists, 200 albums, 1500 tracks and no way to find what i want - for example to play one folder contents continuously. Only way I can think of right now seems to change all my mp3 ID3-tag album names same as my folder structure names but that choice is really bad because I don't want to lose original ID3 info and also modifying is really tedious when have to change few hundred folders of songs. So am I missing something obvious or what should I do to enable that simple behavior described above? One more thought - maybe in phone is some config file available where album names are stored and change all album names to folder names in there and not running "Update media" after that?
Is it possible to save games and applications when using SE update service? When I use the update manager built in the phone, it says "no new updates available ", but SE update service finds a new update for the phone, but I don't want to loose all my applications, I've payed for many of them and such. I have a SE W715 with firmware R6A018
First off, a bit of background. I bought an ELM (unlocked) off of eBay. I was able to put an ASDA sim in and it is fine for calls etc. However, I'm very puzzled as to what is going on with the internet settings. I contacted ASDA and they sent the appropriate setting for my phone but whenever I try to use Opera Mini , Bolt, GPS or anything else Internet related the connection fails almost immediately. What doubly puzzles me is that if I press the O2 softkey a page comes up which says 'It looks like your using wifi (which I'm definitely NOT) but then that page allows me to browse to other pages (BBC etc). The phone has clearly originally been on O2 and it's almost like something in there has grabbed the internet and won't let go so it's the ONLY internet page I can access. I've tried hard resets as suggested by ASDA etc.
Went to use the google map application the other day, and whilst it was generating route it complained it had lost signal.True, signal was dead, 3g or otherwise. However, GPS was still up and live so no route completed as it complained no network.Why does it need network to run?Seems pointless as you cannot guarantee a signal. for example, on my route home from work for the 45min drive I have an orange signal for about 10mins.
My internet service prov... is really expensive and limited whereas the internet connection on my computer is unlimited and very fast. Is it possible to do that through a USB cord ? I dont have a bluetooth adapter.
I have no problem using anything else that requires an Internet connection through Wi-Fi, such as browsing, email and GPS.However, when A-GPS is enabled when using any location service application,the phone will use the mobile network (O2 in my case) to access the server even when connected to a Wi-fi network (my own wireless router).Everything else will use Wi-Fi by default, when connected, but A-GPS seems to be the exception.Has anyone else encountered this problem with the W995 and do you know why? Is it perhaps network related?
I have a W910i Sony Ericsson phone. And we have WIFI connection in my home and at my work place. Thus, we have our own wireless router. Is it possible for me to connect to our WIFI connection using my W910i? If it is possible, how will I connect to it?
I've been trying to get my phone to connect to my existing home Internet connection, which is wireless. I gave this thought because my husband's IPhone connects to our home network so easily. How do I get my C901 to do this? Or is it not possible?
When I tried to set up the My Presence section within the phone I entered in my username, password and then it asked me for server information so I entered in what I thought was the right info, but now it keeps giving me a network error failure message.
When I try to connect with facebook and the eplus-internet connection is not available the facebook application searches always for a WiFi. If this is not accessible I cannot cancel the application because it is searching still for the WiFi. I have to turn of the phone and turn on again.
I have just purchased a used Satin phone and I am having problems trying to connect to the INTERNET using the WI-if. I can go to websites but when i try to log-in it goes back to the menu screen. Is there something i need to change in the settings? I have downloaded the latest update but this hasn't made any difference. It may be something simple, i know but as its a new phone for me i am not sure what to do.
I have had the W995 for close to a month now on a contract from Virgin and I am very pleased with it in almost every aspect apart from one!
The problem is as follows. When I connect to my WI-FI via the W995 I wait until I get confirmation that I am connected and then I attempt to access the internet via the browser provided by Sony Ericsson. After a short time I get the message 'Communication error. Try again, turn off Wi-Fi or contact your provider for support'. I have tried many things to fix this problem. I have spoken to Sony Ericsson and they suggested altering my security settings on the router. I have tried using Opera Mini as an alternative browser and perhaps 2 or 3 times it worked for a minute or two and then it failed. I have searched quite a few websites and seen that an awful lot of people have the same problem without getting anywhere with it. There are occasional suggestions that I have read and tried such as manually configuring the service and putting various IP addresses into my phone but nothing works!
My German Hazel does not want to use Canadian WiFi! No matter if I am trying to login to my home WLAN or using an open hotspot - I get a mixture of messages but no WiFi access: "Out of network area, not available, error in communication etc.". I am not using any data plan, just plain prepaid on FIDO.ca - therefore a phone able to use WiFi.Sometimes the Hazel briefly logs-in to my home WLAN, but than immediately drops out on an ongoing basis, i.e. in/out continuously when in auto-login mode. If it stays in for longer than 30 sec. (rarely) and I select 'Internet' I am prompted to choose a network provider - something I don't want when using my WLAN. I never had the chance to use the browser or any internet service at all. I updated the phone software 2 days ago - no improvement!
I debranded my c905 from ATT. I got everything working now. I have unlimited internet on my cell plan. I use bluetooth PAN to connect my laptop to the internet using my phone. I have another laptop that doesn't have bluetooth. It does have WiFi. I would like to turn my C905 into a WiFi hotspot. I have WiFi working on the phone but it doesn't have settings for AdHoc or anything that will let me turn it into a access point.
Can anyone help please I downloaded the latest update for my W995 handset about 2 weeks ago and now have a load of problems, it will now not access the Internet. Says "Communication error. Please try again or turn off WiFi or contact support provider" the Wifi is def turned off - Orange have tried to fix it by sending me new settings and then turning off phone etc though not worked. It will also not now send emails and cannot locate any phone update via the handset from Sony
When I try to use the facebook application using 3g or wifi, it says connection error, or unable to complete login, I cant uninstall it and I've tried reinstalling it from the application store, but still does not work?
