    Network based module on E61

    Hello,
    On my E61 there is a network based positioning module:
    -----------------------------
    id: 0x101fe98e, available: 1, name:Network based
    device status[0] 3
    accuracy: 200.000000, time 12 sec.
    capabilities:1, classtype: 1
    device location 1, technology 2
    ----------------------------------

    Unfortunately when I try to use it it always returns timeout (-33) after the maximum timeout(2+minutes). How can I use this module?
    I am using symbian c++.

    Thank you for the answer.
    My code is working fine on FP1 devices, the only problem is that on my E61 it gives me timeout.
    Just in case I have installed location example on my E61 and it stops on 'Waiting for GPS signal'
    On RDA devices it gives KErrGeneral
    It looks to me like Symbian 9.1 does not support network based location

    Can not be any 3rd ed FP1 specific, since then it would not even work on N95..Only chnage there was between FP1 & FP2 was the Location capability being moved to self-signeable ones. I would consider updating the device firmware and trying again. Also do remember to have SIM card installed in it.

    With the location example, do check that it is using some other method than the GPS ones for the positioning, or build an example with the wiki code.

    My E61 is with the latest firmware, SIM card installed and internet access point set up.
    The Location Example uses the default module and is working ok on FP1+ devices.

    Most probably it is Fp1 specific (i.e - working only on FP1+ devices). There are differences between MR (Symbian 9.1) and Fp1 for sure - for example Symbian 9.1 does not have positioning server settings where you set access point and server name, the module id is also different than the module id on Fp1. In my opinion the network module does not work on 9.1 or may be it works on specific operators only.
