WLAN issues with 9300i

Hey there,

whenever I am at Starbucks etc. using the available WLAN internet connection I have to reconnect every 2 Minutes with Easy WLAN and sometimes I get the Message "System: Not ready".

When I type an URL the connection dialogue shows up and I choose Easy WLAN. After I am connected to the available SSID the site is loading and then sometimes I get the message "System: Not ready" and the loading stops. I have to reconnect with Easy WLAN. Normally it works in the second try. When the site is loaded and I klick on a link sometimes the connection dialogue shows up again.

The conclusion is that I have to reconnect every two minutes. Sometimes with "System: Not ready" Message, sometimes without. I never had a stable WLAN connection.

Any ideas?

Lars

Yeah I checked some settings yesterday and the power save mode is really crap! Anyway seems to work much better without the power save mode.

Thanks
Lars

How is the browsing at Wi-Fi speeds? Are you seeing the same issues that were written about in that review posted a few days ago -- that the time it takes for the phone to render web pages is so long that Wi-Fi does not increase the browsing speed any over GPRS/EDGE??

I'm debating whether or not to get the 9300i or 9300, and if wi-fi does not offer a significant speed increase, I see no reason to spend the extra cash on the 9300i.

The only other differences I see are T9 on the cover phone (nice but not worth $300 extra), bluetooth 1.2 instead of 1.1 (nice, but not worth the extra cost), slightly larger battery (again - nice, but not worth the extra cost), color of the phone (who cares), and location of the IR port (I never use IR).

I bought the 9300i 'cos of the form factor and the T9. I had a 9500.

Well its true that there is no speed improvement while using WLAN instead of GPRS. The whole phone is slow in everything. I used a Treo 650 before and this was lightspeed compared to the 6680 and 9300i.

T9 does not work with me! I am using the english/arabic version (cause I am working in Dubai and I could not get a pure english one). I think thats cause of the arabic support. Dont ask me... Crap again.

The batterie is improved?? Then I would like to see the 9300 batterie! I have to recharge the 9300i every night and it hardly survives one day!

Whats the current firmware btw? I have 05.50(01)
