Normally you can access easily to a WiFi Hotspot simply opening the browser & saying OK to your Nokia 5800 when it asks to connect toa n autodetected gíreles connection.

But sometimes, the AP (Access Point) where you want to connect doesn’t have enabled the DHCP server (automatic IP addresses assignation)

To assign a custom IP address you will have to follow the next steps:

1. Enter in Settings -> Connectivity -> Destinations -> Internet

Select the Acces Point to edit or just add a new one Options-> New Access Point

Fill in the WIFI adjustments: SSID, Security Mode (WEP, WPA…), password (if necessary), etc.

2. Select Options – > Advanced Settings -> IPv4 Settings (or IPv6) and fill in the parameters.
For example:
Phone IP Address:
Subnet Mask:
Default gateway:
DNS addresses: automatic

That’s it!!
Easy, isn’t it?
