BBC iPlayer Connection Problem N96

Hi there, hope someone can help.

I have been unable to connect to iPlayer for some weeks now. From a fresh start of the phone, when i open iPlayer i get the usual 'Allow connection to network' prompt which i say 'yes' to. It then tries to connect but fails and states 'Internet: Unable to Connect. Check connection settings.'.

If i go into to Tools > WLAN wiz. and search for available WLANS, get the phone to recognise my home WLAN is available and then open iPlayer, i get the following error - 'Internet: Unable to Connect. WLAN network not found'

If i'm connected to the web already and say browsing Hotmail, then open iPlayer i get the following error 'WLAN: WLAN connection already active. Close it and try again.'

I am also not getting the option to connect via orange or available WLANS when using the internet or opening iPlayer.

Can anyone help ?

Many thanks in advance.

Do you have the most upto date software?

Point your N96 browser at

Also this site may offer a few answers.

Removeing the I Player, re starting your handset and re installing may help.
