Go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings', and, if the 'Wi-Fi' checkbox is unticked, tick it. After a little while, a list of available networks will be shown. If you want to refresh that list, tap 'Menu > Scan'. Anyway, if the network you want to connect to is in the list, tap over it and tap 'Connect'. You will be prompted to fill in the passphrase (if any). Otherwise, i.e. your network is not shown (e.g. it is hidden), tap 'Add Wi-Fi network', fill in its name, under 'Network SSID', the security encryption method, and the password (if any). Then, tap 'Save'. You can also specify your Wi-Fi sleep policy and other settings, by tapping 'Menu > Advanced'. After you finish, tap 'Menu > Save'. Again, press the back button as many times you need to go back to where you were before. By the way, if your phone's user guide happens to be missing, feel free to download it from this location. Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you out any further. Regards, Carlos
Do you mean you have already tried to go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Wi-Fi settings > Menu > Advanced > Wi-Fi sleep policy', and set it to 'Never', and, yet, your Wi-Fi radio is disconnected whilst your phone is in standby?
Anyway, please, let me know if you need further informations.
You must have something like 'Start > Programs > Wireless Manager'. This manager is also launched if you have the 'Wireless' icon activated in your Today screen, and you tap over it.. There, you should find a button dedicated to toggling Wi-Fi on and off.
An alternative way is going to 'Start > Settings > Connections tab > Wi-Fi'. If you tap on 'Seach for Networks', the Wi-Fi radio will be turned on.
Anyway, once a Wireless network is detected, the encryption methods are usually already pre-filled. You'll be prompted to set the passphrase, if any, though.
Just my 2 cents...
Ok for starters your Nokia 5310 is not a SMART phone so you will not be able to install WI-FI software! Even if you could your phone would have to have WI-FI components built into the phone for WI-FI to work. If you need WI-FI try looking at some of the Nokia N series phones like N95 etc. Because they use Symbian Software they are capable of running applications that can control WI-FI and GPS etc.
