Connecting to the Orange mobile phone network and connecting to Wireless Access Points (WiFi) are quite separate and different technologies.

If you're trying to connect to public WiFi "hotspots" while away from home, you would scan for Available Wireless Networks and then "Connect" to the selected one in the same way that you "Connect" to your Home Hub.

Yes no problem connecting to public WI FI done that but need to connect to the orange network on my phone, my old phone m600 will connect to the web fine on either my hub or on the phone
Ijust need some instruction to set the Nexus One up the google help site was of no use.

If you're trying to connect with GPRS (and I think 3G uses a GPRS "dialup number"), you probably need to dial *99# or *99***1# to connect. If a data initialisation string is required, try:

(the leading AT may not be required)

orangeinternet is the APN (Access Point Name) if that's all you need to enter.

Is that any help?

Hi the GPS works fine on my Nexus One it's the maps from the internet don't come down without the orange network connection I can see on the phone to set up a APN just found the set up page any idea what to put in on all the settings?

GPRS is internet. If you have an Orange SIM card then it may be worthwhile contacting them.
click here is information about Orange World and click here is a link to set up internet access. The snag that I can see is that Orange don't have the Nexus One listed and may not support it click here
