Re: Wi-Fi problem in Nokia N8

Wi-Fi is easily configured in Nokia N8. First you should check how your device wants to connect to the internet. As soon after defining the connection it will automatically connect to an available known network. Selection of network which your device wants to connect is based on the connection settings. To set the Wi-Fi network you need to follow the below steps.
  1. Go to the Menu.
  2. In the Menu, select settings and connectivity and then select settings.
  3. Select automatically switch to know wireless network.
  4. Select switch to WLAN and then select WLAN only.
  5. You can also connect to WLAN manually by using WLAN wizard application.

Re: Wi-Fi problem in Nokia N8

You can configure and connect to your home network by using the following steps
  • Suppose that you have selected switch to WLAN from Menu > Settings and Connectivity > Settings. When you are in your home network select ?data use in home network?.
  • Now you need to use packet data connection in your home network by selecting data use in home network and then click on automatic. Now you need to select data use in home network and then select always ask.
  • To connect to WLAN select menu/ Settings and Connectivity/WLAN. Select and hold down your home WLAN from the popup menu.
  • If you want to secure your home network then you need to enter the passcode. If your home WLAN is hidden then select other and enter the network name.

Re: Wi-Fi problem in Nokia N8

While using Wi-Fi network you should always check that there is no blocking between the mobile device and your Wi-Fi network. Connection to Wi-Fi network can be easily lost if there is blocking. Before connecting to Wi-Fi network check that there is no blockage and then try to connect. You can connect and use your WLAN very safely if there is no blocking. Also when using WLAN some security mechanism should be used such as encryption.

Re: Wi-Fi problem in Nokia N8

You can follow the below steps to connect outside the home network:
  1. After selecting switch to WLAN you need to select ?Data use when roaming? and then select always ask.
  2. Set the device to automatically connect and you have already selected Data use when roaming and click on automatic.
  3. The WLAN wizard will open which will connect your Nokia N8 to WLAN and manage the WLAN connections.
  4. You can secure your WLAN connection by encrypting method. Now you can use connect to public WLANs in public places when outside the home network.
  5. Select the desired WLAN connection from Menu /Settings and Connectivity /WLAN and Start web browsing.
