Wi-fi connection issues on Belle FP1 or FP2? Try this fix.

Published by at

It seems that Nokia has identified an issue with Wi-fi connections on Belle FP1 and FP2 devices connecting to 'old WLAN Access Points' (i.e. old routers). There has been a very low profile patch issued, links and screens below. Oh, and don't think this also fixes Wi-fi issues on old phones like my problematic E7 - the patch will only install on the devices specified below (I tried!)

From the relevant page:

It has been reported that following Symbian devices: Nokia 603, Nokia 700, Nokia 701 and Nokia 808 PureView having Belle Feature Pack 1 (FP1) or Belle Feature Pack (FP2) release are facing Wi-Fi interoperability (IOP) issues with some old WLAN Access Points (AP). An issue with the WLAN software has been identified and a fix has been made.

This trial updates the WLAN software on the phone. The trial is not available for other products or Nokia 700 Belle release or Nokia 701 Belle release.
