Previously I noted that my 808 had some issues connecting/maintaining a connection to my home WiFi connection, which some of you pointed out has been a constant bug in Symbian since the start. Beta Labs have published a WiFi update for all FP1 device that fixes some “WiFI interoperability issues” which should hopefully settle the matter:
It has been reported that following Symbian devices: Nokia 603, Nokia 700, Nokia 701 and Nokia 808 PureView having Belle Feature Pack 1 (FP1) or Belle Feature Pack (FP2) release are facing Wi-Fi interoperability (IOP) issues with some old WLAN Access Points (AP). An issue with the WLAN software has been identified and a fix has been made.
This trial updates the WLAN software on the phone. The trial is not available for other products or Nokia 700 Belle release or Nokia 701 Belle release.
The product team would appreciate any feedback, negative or positive, regarding this trial.
You can download the update (as a .sis file) onto your compatible device from HERE and install it directly (NOTE: You need to disconnect your Device’s WiFi before installing the update).
