Wi-Fi provides wireless Internet access over distances of up to 100 meters (00 feet).

To use Wi-Fi on your phone, you need access to a wireless access point or "hotspot". The availability
and range of the Wi-Fi signal depends on the number, infrastructure, and other objects
through which the signal passes.

Turning Wi-Fi on and connecting to a wireless network
From the Home screen, press MENU, and then tap Settings > Wireless & networks.
Select the Wi-Fi check box to turn Wi-Fi on. The phone then scans for available wireless

Tap Wi-Fi settings. The network names and security settings of detected Wi-Fi networks
are displayed in the Wi-Fi networks section.
If the wireless network you want to connect to is not in the list of detected networks,
scroll down the screen, and then tap Add Wi-Fi network. Enter the wireless network
settings, and then tap Save.

Tap the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to.
If you selected an open network, you will be automatically connected to the network.
If you selected a network that is secured with WEP, enter the key and then tap

Depending on the network type and its security settings, you may also need to enter more information
or choose a security certificate.
When your phone is connected to a wireless network, the Wi-Fi icon appears in the
status bar and tells you the approximate signal strength (number of bands that light up).
The next time your phone connects to a previously accessed secured wireless network, you
will not be prompted to enter the key or other security information again, unless you reset
your phone to its factory default settings.

My tablet is sayin no connection wen im connected to wifi cant download nowt... Help

It would appear that your tablet can connect to whatever wireless access point you are trying to use, but this access point is preventing your access to the Internet probably because it needs a Username and Password to let you through. Check and make sure that you have all the relevant information to connect completely.
The items you may need are
Wireless access key
Wireless encryption method
Username & Password for Internet access
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya

Wi-fi pasword connot conect to wi-fi

Network security key
Some later model wireless routers have the Password (ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router and this information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adapters in your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit your requirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorized access.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cable from your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computer and enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login and password and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID and Encryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 to generate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to 63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born in January 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops can communicate with your wireless router.

Cant conect to 02 internet on nokiac3

go to menu->settings->connectivity->wlan->internet connection

Please check your phone sw version from this link and update if necessary.

Please do not forget to back up your phone before you update.

The latest sw is 4.60 depending on the sales areas and variant.

Please also become familiar with the FAQs :

How do I manage WLAN internet access points on my Nokia C3-00 device?

How can i use always WLAN connection on my Nokia C3-00 phone for Internet instead of GPRS?

I hope this helps.

First of all you delete all current settings, these are for 02 and will not work on giffgaff. To delete settings:

  1. Press the navi key and go to Menu
  2. Go to settings
  3. Go to configuration
  4. Press the navi key on Default config. settings
  5. On both 02 Pay&Go and 02 paymonthly press the backspace key (inbetween the p and enter key)
  6. Select Yes to delete on both

Now that you have done that you need to set up the giffgaff settings, I recommend using this method to do it:

  1. Go back to configuration
  2. Select personal settings
  3. Select Options then Add new and then Web
  4. Put the Account name to anything you want (I put Giffgaff web)
  5. Put the Homepage to anything you want (I put
  6. Put the Username to giffgaff and the password to password
  7. Put Use preferred access pt. to No
  8. Select Access point settings
  9. Put Proxy to Enabled
  10. In the Proxy address type and select OK
  11. In Proxy port type 8080
  12. Go into Bearer settings
  13. In Packet data access pt. type
  14. Put the Network type to IPv6 (IPv6 appears to be faster)
  15. Leave the Authentication type at Normal
  16. In User name type giffgaff and in password type password
  17. Go back until you see your Personal accounts and press Options on your settings and select Activate
  18. Go back again and in Default config. settings select Personal config.
  19. Finally press Default in all apps.

Now that you've done this set up the packet data settings:

  1. Go back and select Connectivity and then Packet data
  2. Put Packet data connection to When needed and select Packet data settings
  3. In Active access point select Access point 5 (Access point 1 is known to have some problems, select Access point 5 to be on the safe side)
  4. Go into Edit active access point
  5. In Access point alias type whatever you want (I typed in Giffgaff)
  6. In Packet data access pt. type

Okay so finally for wifi settings:

  1. Go back and go into WLAN
  2. Select Internet connection to Ask first (so that you can choose to use wifi)
  3. Now select Available WLANs and wait for the search
  4. Simply find you WLAN, select it and enter the security password for it
  5. When it asks Save network for future use select Yes

Now you have giffgaff internet and wifi set up on your Nokia C3-00! For any issues you can message me, I will be willing to help!

Update: You may be experiencing problems with using wifi with the browser or any other application, do this to fix it: "I had the exact same problem. What I did was that I removed all network Internet settings, GPRS, WAP, etc. because I do not want to use them which is when I lost the ability to select which AP to use.

So what I did was I created a personal setting:

Settings > Configuration > Personal settings > Add > Web

Then go to the main menu > Internet > Web settings > Configuration Settings > Select the personal settings that you created

Now try to access the internet and it will ask you to choose, choose Wi-fi

Then go back to the personal settings and delete the setting that you created. From now on, you will be asked which connection to use everytime you access the internet

If you want to restore your GPRS settings, you can just request it from your network provider and they will send it to your phone."

My wifi doesn't connect to any routers but it connect to my laptop ad-hoc.Still i am not able to use internet through ad-hoc.I have tried restoring my iphone, reset and erase settings, reset network...

Ad-hoc is a computer to computer connection.
You need to change the wireless configuration to Access Point (Infrastructure) mode with encryption.

Your wireless card in your computer or laptop needs to be configured with the router's wireless settings eg. the SSID and encryption key
The encryption key (network key) is in your wireless router, without this key the wireless router won't allow the computer or laptop to connect to this wireless router.
The WEP, WPA, WPA2 encryption key is in your router's wireless settings. Log into your router and got to the wireless settings, you will need to get the SSID and the encryption key. Then go to your computer or laptop's wireless card and configure it with the router's SSID and encryption key, so it will then connect to the wireless router and the Internet.

To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access,please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

My samsung jet s8000 how can I get internet access I keep getting message that I do not have permission to access on server

we usually received this messages or server replies if.. 1.  we are not subscribe, or we are using a plan sim and not subscribed to internet accessibility.  2.  if you are connecting to a secured wireless network and accessing it.  3.  if your browser profile settings are not configured well to your network provider.  and many more. 
try to do a check on your phone.  for 1>> check your sim if you are subscribed as plan or you are using a plan sim, thereby, accessing the internet has separate purchase or subscription.  for 2>> ask a the server administrator to give you permission so you can connect to their server.  for 3>> ask you network provider to send you the right settings and configure it properly. and check again if you set your network provider as the default browser profile for your internet accessibility.

Password for wireless

the I Phone is asking for your wireless routers security key. Some routers have them on a sticker underneath? Or from your PC you will need to log into administrator page to find it. It may be listed as WEP key? Hope that helps?
