    Can a non-wifi mobile like 5700 connect this way to Wlan

    Hello,

    I needed a clarification on this. I do have a nokia 5700 mobile. The only feature that I want to use and am unable to use is to connect to Wlan that I have in my modem at home. Is there any way I can connect to Wlan. With the technical advancements, I just was wondering like what if a Wlan software is used and also we do get USB Wlan adapters that may be used to connect to mobile using its USB connection. Will anything like it make the feature work? Hardware through the USB Wlan adapter and a software installed for Wlan...Just a thought...possible? please let me know..thanks in advance

    Probably the closest you can get is Bluetooth to PC which is connected to WLAN, if you use gnubox (if you can get it working on/with the 5700):

    Thanks for ur reply....I do not wish to try that as of now for two reasons...
    1. I will be using bluetooth headset most hours connected with PC and therefore it is not convenient or not possible to connect the phone at those times.
    2. Will have to switch on the PC every time I need to use internet on mobile and that would not be ok when long duration is needed.

    Thanks anyways...will wait to see if any solution arises...but I really wonder why the USB wlan adapters cant be used for this purpose. Cant the software be made to recognize the adapter connected through USB on a symbian platform?
