The use of the WLAN (Wireless Local Area Network) function on the Nokia E61 allow speeds of up to one (1Mb) Megabit per second as you can connect via your broadband router.

The main issue is that you set need to setup security on you Nokia E61. Both types of security WEP and WPA are supported. You will need to set the encryption key manually on your broadband router, which may mean changing the encryption on PC's that are automatically set up like the broadband router supplied in Windows XP.
