      Hi there

      The problem is that N96 cannot obtain IP address. It connects to the access point (it doesn't matter the encryption type, key, etc.) but cannot obtain IP address from the DHCP server.

      It seems that when an WiFi router is in "Access point" mode the N96 cannot connect to it . In "Access point" mode "DHCP server" feature is disabled. It seems that N96 has problem to broadcast DHCP client request withing the local network to find DHCP server and to obtain IP address. I have no problems with Nokia 5800, E61, E71 and E70 on the same router. Only N96 has.

      So you must change your WiFi router mode to "router" to have DHCP server running on the router. And your Nokia will start working.

      Best Regards,
      Orlinkata

      Hi, I've been messing around for ages with a similar problem on my N95 8gb. Eventually I got it to work, by going into wireless lan setting on the N95 and enabled settings to auto.
