Repeatedly connecting and disconnecting to WLAN seems to produce an out-of-memory condition in Nokia E65 (and possibly other S60 3rd Edition devices).

If you repeatedly try to establish and disconnect a WLAN connection, the socket server returns error -4 (KErrNoMemory) if there is any attempt to create a further connection through the socket server.

This condition can be created by repeating the following actions approximately 450 times:

  1. establishing a connection (RSocketServ::Connect(), RConnection::Open(), RConnection::Start()) and then
  2. closing that connection (RConnection::Close(), RSocketServ::Close())

The condition appears after approximately one hour of continuously creating and recreating the connection.

After the error occurs, trying to establish a connection using the Web application also results in error -4.


No solution available for Nokia E65.

This problem can no longer be reproduced on Nokia N95 8GB sw version 30.0.018.
