    Manually enter a wifi connection profile without being on site?


    Is there a way to manually enter a wifi connection profile without being on site?
    Use case: I'd like to set up my father's new notebook computer at my place, rather than his. I know his ssid and security key.

    :)

  2. Problem with Swype and WIFI

    Manually buddy, can't connect since the popup doesn't allow me to enter the WLAN Key. So I end up not being able to connect at all. Was able to during October though, without any hassles.

  3. Nokia E61 DHCP Problems

    Dear all,

    since 3 weeks I am an happy owner of a beautiful nokia e61.

    However there is something wrong with DHCP on WLAN networks.

    When I leave DHCP on (automatic ip addressing) on a WIFI profile, I get a connection timeout error. If, on the same profile, I set a manual address, everything works just fine (SIP, Web Browsing, Email ecc).

    I discovered that issue with several WIFI connections that I can access without problems using laptop (in dhcp mode). The only way to connect to that networks using E61 is set a manual IP.

    I even tried with my own wifi access point setting an infrastructure connection, with no security, ssid broadcasting and with dhcp enabled... always the same problem: with dhcp on E61 -> timeout, without dchp on E61 -> perfect

    Any suggestions are really appreciated

    Regards

    Matteo

    Not really. If the computer is not connected to an access point, you cannot and should never manually put in the Passphrase for the SSID.

    Maybe even a simpler way would be to setup your WiFi with the same SSID and connect to that at your place and when he gets the computer to his place it should connect automatically.

    Also I would install TeamViewer now and get it working to autoconnect so you can help when he is at home
