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

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
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: expect (CONNECT)
chat: -- got it
chat: send ( ^M)
pppd: Serial connection established.
pppd: Using interface ppp0
pppd: Connect: ppp0 <--> /dev/ttyU0
pppd: PAP authentication succeeded
pppd: LCP terminated by peer
pppd: Connection terminated.
pppd: read: Bad file descriptor
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
I found a Symbian forum, so I may ask there.
