You can use your mobile device to connect a computer to the Internet. To do this, you need to have your mobile device connected to the computer via a USB cable or via Bluetooth.
To create an internet connection for the first time, do the following:
- You can find the latest available Nokia Suite from your local support site
- In the Nokia Suite Home view, click Tools>Options>Connect to Internet
- Depending on the device model you are using, the internet connection is created as follows:
The connection is created automatically or you need to select the operator to be used when creating an internet connection. From the list that shows the operators in your country, select your home operator (in other words the operator to whose network you have subscribed to). Then click OK.
Once you are connected to the internet, you can see detailed information about the connection in the left-hand area of Home. The following information is displayed:
- Operator or access point in use.
- Duration of the current internet connection.
- Amount of data transferred during the current internet connection
Note:If you have a Nokia Suite view other than Home open, the device area indicates that you are connected to the internet.
Steps to connect your device and computer:Connect your device to the computer by using a USB cable or Bluetooth wireless connection.If you are connecting via Bluetooth, Bluetooth modem drivers may need to be installed on your computer.
Note: USB connection is much preferred as USB is much stable.
Support software may also need to be installed on your mobile device. The support software is needed for keeping messages, contacts and bookmarks up to date on your device and computer. Accept the installation on your mobile device if the device asks for confirmation. The installation of Bluetooth modem drivers and support software depends on the device model you are using. If you cancel the installation or if the installation fails, it is later restarted automatically.
