      hi, thanx for your help sorry i've taken so long to reply!!

      I have typed the WPA pass key in capitals as suggested but this makes no difference-my phone definately doesn't work with WPA encryption. I am going to try dropping down to WEP as recommended and see if this helps.

      thanks to everyone for your help - I'll let you know how I get on

      Of course your phone works with WPA encryption. You just haven't correctly identified the probem yet!

      Can I suggest you go to www.n95users.com and look there. The forum deals with the N96 and other variants. I'm sure they'll help sort you out!

      Re: Nokia N96 WLAN connection

      well the classic issue is not typing in capitals.. but as you have tried that then their is obviously an issue with your n96 recognising that you are imputting the correct key... have you tried a factory reset of the router?as i did that once with my n95 8gb and that worked..... and yes listen to ned ludd... very good forum

      I would NOT advise anyone to drop down to WEP if WPA/WPA2 is available which they are on the N95 and N96.
      If you are nopt using the standard SKY Passphrase then you must copy the Passphrase exactly as shown in the router Settings. (it's at the bottom of the WiFi page).

      Ah! but after following my original advice, he managed to get a connection to the router so his router was obviously locked down, and it is safer that way.

      One thing to try :- delete the Access Point from your phone and start again. That has been known to correct passphrase problems.

      Cool Re: Nokia N96 WLAN connection

      I have the same problem with an N96 on the same router. After using an N95 with the router for a 18 months. In the early days the N95 had the exact same error message until I changed the power saver option. Doing this in the N96 does not fix the "No gateway reply" error, this occurs after successfully downloading 1 or 2 pages. I tried with a colleagues BT Home Hub and had no problems whatsoever.

      I have also tried static IP information same problem so its not a DNS issue. On the home screen the N96 constantly shows the service disconnecting - "Found" then "refreshing" then "connected".

      N.b I am aware of the difference between upper case and lower.
