Hope FE doesn't move this to "Mobile World", 'cos there's no one there. lol I've got a Samsung Omnia i900, and can't persuade it to talk to my router. It can see it and gets a strong signal, but there's a little padlock showing by the signal meter, and the connection is never made,it just remains "available". I've entered my router key and set the authentication/encryption to WPA-PSK and TKIP. Do I need to have a SIM card in the phone to achieve this?
I use my Nokia to connect to my wi-fi at home and then I can browse the internet on it without incurring the service provider's charges. I can also connect at free wifi hotspots eg Starbucks. But I cannot of course make calls this way unless it is capable of using Skype or something similar.
Woolwell, would that we could make calls without a SIM! lol Have you tried connecting to your home network using the phone with the SIM removed, since this is the situation I'm currently in. As I'm not as clever as one needs to be to use this whizzy phone, I'm not sure if the failure to connect is down to an incorrect setting, or the lack of a SIM at present.
Woolwell, thanks for trying that for me, a bit contradictory that it connects then asks if you want to work off line! It seems to indicate that the SIM is involved in the connection....hope it doesn't involve some charges along the way! I'll have to wait until I've got a suitable SIM.
Back again! Just had a look in the router and no sign of the phone. Tried again to connect, and after the phone says "Connecting", it just reverts to showing that my network is "Available". Refreshing the "Home Network" page of the router, there is no sign that the phone has made a connection.
