Okay thanks.

Thanks. That appeared to work. wifi working more consistently in my home 
network. Takes maybe 30 seconds to get started though.

Don't know.

Thanks for pointing me to putty. I didn't know there was a putty for 
symbian.  I followed this:
because of some certificate problem. (The setting was in a different 
location though.) It is working good. I haven't used any keys yet though.

I need unread SMS phone messages and emails to signal me every few minutes 
until acknowledged (just I miss during sleep or shower). (I used same 
feature for a couple years with my Sidekick.) For example:
(I need to find some open source software for this.)

I haven't tested the email yet. I will also look at software suggested in 
other reply.

Still trying to figure out the PPP. I do have a umodem and AT on ttyU0 
does give me an OK. My latest tries on NetBSD 4.0 end with:

chat[14572]: expect (CONNECT)
chat[14572]: ^M
chat[14572]: ^M
chat[14572]: CONNECT
chat[14572]:  -- got it 
chat[14572]: send ( ^M)
pppd[14877]: Serial connection established.
pppd[14877]: Using interface ppp0
pppd[14877]: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyU0
pppd[14877]: PAP authentication succeeded
pppd[14877]: LCP terminated by peer
pppd[14877]: Connection terminated.
pppd[14877]: read: Bad file descriptor
pppd[14877]: Exit.

I haven't yet found PPP details for both Nokia e71 and AT&T/Cingular. My 
phone shows these options: AT&T Internet, AT&T MEdia Net, and AT&T MMS 
(all wap.cingular). I have tried many, many ppp options and chat scripts 
for this.

I found a Symbian forum, so I may ask there.
