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.

Connect the cable from your internet provider to the internet port.

The blue ports or 1 - 4 is for non wlan connections
such as a desktop pc or a network printer.

You maybe have to setup the wireless network with a code
so others can`t use your internet.

Good luck

WLAN USB Adapter Working; WLAN Wireless Router Not Working


The router could be crapping out on you. Hit the reset button and see if that solves the problem. If that don't work uninstall then reinstall the system. If the problem remains contact your internet provider to see if it is on their end. If all else fails buy a new wireless system!

Connecting Laptop wireless and Desktop wired to the router


Do you need to see the desktop or just share folders from each other? If the latter then you need to do the following:

Use Windows Explorer and select a folder you want to share. Right click and select sharing and security.

On the sharing tab click on Share this folder. Enter a share name ( I like to enter the PC name _folder name; Rick1_Downloads)

Click on Permissions. If your ok with everyone using the PC's and Laptops having access then highlight Everyone and click on Full Control.

Do this on each PC and Laptop.

That should be it or darned near close.

Can not connect to internet using wireless


Did you input the WEP key? I will assume you are using Windows XP. So go to control panel, network connections and then go to the wireless connection and then select view wireless connections double click on the one with the highest strength, which should be your 2wire. When it asks for the network security key type in the numbers that are located on the sticker on the bottom of your router between the [########] brackets.

Notebook won't connect to network


1) Verify if Wi-Fi WLAN interface of your notebook is OK.
1a) Check whether HW switch is ON and the wireless system service is running.
1b) Switch on the WLAN Access Point (router) SSID broadcasting.
1c) Scan WLAN networks by the notebook. Can you see your home WLAN? If not, there is HW or SW problem in your wireless adapter probably. If WLAN is visible, continue by next steps.

2) Remove all WLAN security on both sides (AP and notebook): Authentication = none/open, encrytption = none.
3) Activate DHCP server in the router and set the dynamic IP assigning on WLAN notebook interface.
4) Select your home WLAN SSID in the list and try to connect.
5) Wait and check status. Is WLAN connected? Does obtain the notebook an IP address?
6) In success case set the WLAN security.
