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
i found this website for you, just follow the steps indicated and you can use your phone and your laptop to connect to the internet
*the settings are for nokia e72, but you can use the same settings (the difference may be is the name/options on the contorl panel settings of your nokia e5)
Your firmware is ANCIENT. If you have installed Nokia PC suite in your PC connect your (fully charged) phone and click on Software update. If don't have it, then go to Nokia web and download it. YOU NEED FIRMWARE UPDATE.
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.
I have 9500 and it does support wireless internet, but many people are having problems with it, so maybe you want to consider other option like E61 or Sony Ericsson P1. I don't actually know how they work, but I've tried 9500 and there are problems.
