    Question WiFi Hotspot discovery..is it possible?

    Hi,

    Is it possible to code the discovery of WiFi hotspots using any mobile platform? i.e. in a similar way to Bluetooth device discovery in JSR-82? (inquiry)

    I've found similar queries like this have come up over the last couple of years but nobody seems to have an answer...

    Your mobile phone must wireless capability to do this. I have a friend who connects to his unsecured wireless network at home with his N-80

    See also Psiloc's Hotspot finder app (http://www.psiloc.com).

    Thanks for the reply but does anybody know if it is possible to access an API to do this via code. In other words, is it possible to access the same calls as the device menu does?

    e.g. on Nokia N80: select Connect. > Conn mgr > Availab. WLAN

    Hrm - in this case then the answer would be no.
    Try the Symbian C++ forums

    Isn't the JSR307 for things you described?

    But unfortunately I haven't seen one model supports it!
