Question about Nokia N800

2 Answers

Bluetooth connection to desktop?

I just bought a Nokia N800 internet tablet, which can connect with wi-fi or bluetooth. I travel a good bit, so I love it. I researched it and deliberately bought a used N800, because it seems to be a better machine for my needs than the newer N810 at twice the price.

Anyway, I was wondering: is there a plug & play bluetooth or wi-fi adapter that would allow me to share a desktop's internet connection, for those times when I can't find wi-fi? The bluetooth dongles that I've seen all require the installation of software on the desktop, and I'd rather not ask my friends to do that.

Any suggestions?

No, PC internet connection is not shared with N800.
The only way to connect to the internet without a wifi signal is to pair your N800 with your cellphone (if it's GPRS and bluetooth capable) and share the GPRS connection.
You can do it with the connection manager of your N800

How do I connect my Samsung Galaxy to BT broadband?


Are you trying to connect via wi-fi or via bluetooth? Typical hotspots are wi-fi, and that can be as easy as turning on wi-fi (in Settings, Wi-fi - see manual or quick setup brochure) then waiting for it to find an active hotspot and plugging in any necessary password. Bluetooth is much less common. Post more info and I'll try to help more.

I am trying to connect via bluetooth my phone ericsson w880i with my nokia n810 internet tablet but it keeps on saying connection failed could you explain how i could make this work.


Make sure both have bluetooth enabled, I suspect that the n810 may require a nokia phone for the phone features. The device didn't register my qtek phone at all.

I want to Use my cell as n my webcam wid my pc, m using nokia 5800 exp music, so help me how can I ?


You can use an application that make your mobile’s camera act as webcam. Here is an application "SmartCam" for Nokia 5800 XpressMusic. Now you can use your mobile as a webcam for your PC.
There are two ways (Wi-Fi and Bluetooth) to connect to pc.

You can download the files from here. Simply unzip the files on your pc. There is one .exe file and one .sis file. Run the .exe file on your pc and then run .sis file on your mobile.

Bluetooth:

Connect your mobile from pc using Bluetooth. Make sure your Bluetooth is on. Just do the pairing of your mobile and pc and start using your mobile as webcam.

Wi-Fi:

You can initiate the Wi-Fi connection from pc in case you don't have Bluetooth on your pc. Open the installed Smartcam application on your pc and then go to File -> Settings -> Connection -> TCP/IP (Wifi) and make sure the settings for Port is Port:9361


Now start the SmartCam application on your mobile phone and go to Options -> Connect -> TCP/IP (Wi-Fi). It will prompt for Server Name. Fill the IP address of your pc (Use ipconfig command on command prompt to know your IP address). Now the application will prompt you to connect to the Internet, choose Wi-Fi to connect to the internet.

Hope this helps.

Also updating your phone’s software may be useful for that. To update your mobile :
1.Backup your personel data to you memory or PC in case not to lost it and restore your personel data to your phone after update completed.
2.After using the Nokia Software Updater, many settings (including your security code) are reset to default to ensure correct operation. Enter the default security code, of 12345. You can then change your security code later.
3.To read the detailed information before updating click here:
4.To start to update your mobile from the Nokia Webpage click here:

Good luck.
