    Nokia 9500 communicator got internet setup with security modes 1) None 2) WEP 3) WPA 4) EPA

    NETGEAR router(WGR614-V9) I am using has got all the above security modes. I tried with none and wep and the rest two I feel complicated and cumbersome. Kindly suggest me based on this information. It shows signal strength as excellent but does not rcognise and connect. When I move far out of house it shows descriptively fall in the signal strength and even picks up another signal of another network in the neighbourhood.

    Thank you and Fixia

    Dear sir,

    Neither my nokia 9500 communicator nor my NETGEAR router had any security mode WEP4. I only serially numbered the security modes available in those unts. You must seen a space between WEP and 4) which is order of WPA

    Dear sir,

    Sofar I have not used either WPA or EPA modes while setting up the NETGEAR router. Wi-Fi is part of WPA mode in the units I use. About entering security code the router generated entering in the phone when asked while trying to connect to Internet, the phone is immediately showing error for writing any worng letter entry. so it is functioning on being it is guarding the security. So problem of security is not there, When no security is set on none that is securitity is not selected at the router then also the phone is not picking the net work. So far I had 3 or 4 times setup router and phone. Once I formatted the pbone memory also.

How is your router set up? Are you using WPA or WEP security? WEP is the newer encryption and I'm affraid 9500 doesn't support this. Would try update firmware and hope that Nokia integrated fix for this in to the update.

Rate me if it helped. Thanks.

    Well WEP4 ...I've never heard. But can you delete all partnership(wifi connection) and start again connection with your router? If it give you choice you will be asked type of connection and password. If you can, choose WEP or WPA(WPA2) and type your password (key string) . Both connection should support wifi b/g (11/54MBs).When you type your password save it so you wont need type anymore.

    Ok, try this : delete all existing pairing in your device. then go to your Netgear webpage (should be numbers :http://192.161etc) log on and check what encryption you have. Could be WEP or WPA. then write down password. On your Nokia go to SEARCH WIFI and when your router is located choose that encryption which is on Netgears setting and type password.

Have you first established the connection between the Router and the Extender?
If so, have you connected e.g. a laptop to the Extender?
So if your WLAN networks SSID is NETGEAR, the WLAN network of the Extender is NETGEAR_EXT and you have to connect the laptop to NETGEAR_EXT.
Then you have to open your favorit internet browser and have to type in, which I guess is a buildin Setup-Assistant.If this doesn't work, make sure, your laptop is configured, to get an ip address automatically via DHCP.

Nokia 9500 network signal is not working

If the 9500 cannot communicate via WLAN but is getting a connection - do the following:

1 - set up a new Internet Access Point in control panel
2 - use the SSID (WLAN Name) to identify the network
3 - set 'Automatic IP address' to NO (Advanced Settings)
4 - give the device an IP address from the range being used on that network
5 - set 'Automatic DNS' to NO
6 - enter a pair of DNS server IP addresses (from your ISP)
7 - back up the phone settings so you never have to do this again

Wep key for nokia 9500 communicator

wep key is the password you give when you own the connection, so that not everyone can connect to the net and do nefarious acts on the net and get you caught. so, for wep key, you must ask the owner/administrator of the connection/phone that has the WLAN.
