I have no problem attaching my new N82 to my, and friends, home wireless networks. However, it fails to connect to the Univeristy Campus network giving the error: "Web: No gateway reply!"

This is because the phone doesn't correctly process DHCP leases with the 'network of one'' (2545.255.255.255) subnet mask. This mask is commonly used to mitigate the spread of malicious software, such as viruses. You can enter a subnet mask but only if you have a static IP address, unusual on enterprise wireless networks.

The campus are introducing a new wirelss VLAN based on the more secure WPA shared key, but guess what, the N82 doesn't support credential exchange, so I cannot connect to that wireless network. This technology is increasing common as an enterprise solution for secure wireless networking.

Nokia, this is rubbish!

This is the sort of problem I'm having with my home wifi. It connects fine during the day and then at a certain time I have to restart my router for me to be able to connect to the internet. Is there anything that I can do or do I have to always disconnect the router?

The problems I experience are only when the network is configured in a specialised way to add an extra layer of security, relevant in an Enterprise environment. It would not explain your problems. No, you shouldn't have to always disconnect your router. Do other devices, such as a laptop, experience the same problem?
