    When you're downloading stuff do you usually have full service/data coverage? If so, there's nothing you can do really. Only thing I would suggest is do some research on which OS has the best browser, and switch to that OS.

    Your 8520 supports Wifi, that is much faster then your cell service.

    I used WEP, and when i linked it up i just put in the WEP code and thats all i was needed to do.
    Didn't you have it working last month?

    boost your home coverage | UMA network coverage for businesses | Orange business

    The Curve 8520 comes ready with UMA technology so you can get enhanced coverage indoors.

    Wi-Fi profile security options

    Security Type:
    Set the security type that the Wi-Fi network supports.

    Select WEP key:
    Set the type of WEP key for the Wi-Fi network.

    WEP key:
    Type the WEP key for the Wi-Fi network in hexadecimal format.

    ...
    Where did you get to before you gave up?

    Im not sure what most of that, but i think ive done it all.

    security type = WEP
    select WEP key = WEP key #1 (that was already set as that)
    and then the WEP is typed in.

    i had put the WEP key straight away when i got the network.
    it says its connected to the Wifi with the name on the the hoemscreen,
    but my symbol isnt white and on manage connections it hasnt got a tick next to it.

    You were nearly there.

    You had a good connection to your Wifi router. The final step is your UMA connection to Orange UK.

    Connections / Wifi Options. Menu / Wifi Diagnostics.

    The first section is your Wifi connection to your router. It should show a status: Successful connection.

    Scroll down to the UMA section and check the status error message. That message should let your carrier's support desk make the final setting to enable UMA.

    I always look at the diagnostics looking to see if i can make sense of it,
    okay so UMA says..
    UMA Wi-Fi available, ticked.
    Connection, crossed.
    error code is blank.
    but status says...
    "ISP or wireless network error.

    "ISP or wireless network error.
    That is it, the error is occuring at your carriers end.

    Call them and ask to be transfered to the technical group that supports UMA. They are the ones that can make it work.
