Question about Sony Ericsson P1i

Open Question

P1i WLAN not connecting to internet

Up until recently I was able to connect to the internet with my P1i via my wireless router at home. One day I attended an event at a local school campus and decided to connect to its wireless network but when I tried to connect, a message popped up stating that a dump file was created and then the phone froze. I had to remove the battery to turn it off. When I turned it back on everything seemed fine except that my phone no longer connected to my wireless network. I backed up all my files and did a master reset but that did not solve the problem. What can I do now?

Solution Description:

  1. Log on to: http://www.sonyericsson.com/cws/support/softwaredownloads/p1i?cc=hk&lc=en
  2. Download and install Update Service on your computer to keep the software in your phone up-to-date and ensure optimum performance from your phone.
  3. When the download is complete, an Update Service shortcut will be created on your desktop.
  4. While still connected to the Internet, click the ‘Update Service’ shortcut icon on your desktop
  5. Sony Ericsson window will pop up and downloading will begin. Allow the downloading to run complete to 100%
  6. Another Sony Ericsson window showing different countries’ languages will pop up, select your preferred language.
  7. Sony Ericsson ‘Welcome to Update Service’ window will pop up, showing ‘Exit’ on the left-hand side and ‘Start’ on the right-hand side.
  8. Click the ‘Start’ icon and select ‘Agree’ on the ‘Term of Use’ page that pops up
  9. Select your phone type and click on ‘Continue’
  10. Highlight your specific phone type and select ‘Continue’
  11. Follow the instructions as shown below:
- Make sure your phone is fully charged
- Connect the USB cable to a USB port on your computer
- Turn off your phone
- Remove and reinsert the battery
- Press and hold the ‘C’ button down while plugging the USB cable to the computer
- Continue to hold the ‘C’ button down until the instruction number ‘7’ on the Update Service comes up (i.e. Instructing you to ‘Release the ‘C’ button)
  1. Allow the update to run to the end
  2. When the system informs you that the latest update has already been installed on your system, click on ‘Continue Anyway’
  3. Click ‘Yes’ to all subsequent questions
  4. Allow the update to fully run to the end
  5. When update is complete, disconnect the USB from the computer and phone
  6. Remove and reinsert the phone battery
  7. Power on your Sony Ericsson P1i phone
  8. Congratulation!!!

NB: since the phone is not powering on, you may not be able to know whether the battery is fully charged. Hence, you will need to use a Sony Ericsson Deskstand. Connect the Battery Charger to its slot on the Deskstand and the USB cable to its slot simultaneously. This enables the battery to charge while the update is also running.

Can not connect to internet


hi thanks for using fixya!!

If you are connecting to the internet by using GPRS, I recommend that you should contact your Network Service Provider for settings and configuration.

If you are connecting to the internet via WLAN, make sure that your in range from the wireless router to enable you to connect to the network.

If you need further assistance, let me know.

Regards!

WIFI for Toshiba E750


If u use a WLAN access point, you should: 1. configure your wlan router to allow internet 2. choose "WORK" in the network connections configuration dialogs. and maybe you will have to configure the proxy server too.

Internet connection at my e830


To configure the Wireless connection you can use the Wifi connection wizard or setup the connection manually. I hope that you have checked your workgroup too. Also you should check if your IP settings are the same at the router and PDA (dynamic and static IP)! If you have some another device connected to the router remember them when you setup the PDA connection! In the end the MAC address of the PDA WLAN card must be saved in the router!
