How to Setup Nokia WiFi Proxy in Belle, Anna, Symbian

Alike all others phones, Nokia Belle, Anna and Symbian allows you to use Nokia WiFi Proxy settings. As you all know Nokia Belle introduced with lots of features, but setting up proxy remains same in Symbian, Anna and Belle. To setup proxy settings, all you have to do follow the below instructions carefully.

1. Firstly, open your Nokia Menu (we are using Nokia belle on N8 as example.)

Nokia Belle Home Screen

2. Then Tap on the Settings Icon.

Nokia Belle Menu

3. In Settings Menu, click on Connectivity.

Nokia Connectivity

4. In Connectivity Menu, Tap on the Settings.

Connectivity Setting

5. Then Tap on Network Destinations.

Network Destination

6. Then Click on Access Point to add New Access Point (New Wi-Fi Settings). If will automatically search the available Wi-Fi connections near to your Phone, once it shows the available connections, simply add it to Internet section.

Access Point

7. Now, Tap on Internet (to see the access points you have created in the above step).

Nokia Internet

8. Then Tap on the Access Point (we are using SHARDA as example).

Internet Access Point

9. Then your Access Point settings will be opened. There simply Tap on the Right Button.

Access Point Tap

10. Then Tap on the Advanced Settings.

Advanced Settings

11. There, you can simply add Proxy Server address (we are using 128.10.100.2 as example).

Proxy Server Address

12. Then add Proxy Port Number (we are using 6588 as example).

Proxy Port Number

You can use the above procedure in all Symbian version 3 and 5, Anna and Nokia Belle. You can use different proxy settings for every new Access Point you create.

  • If your phone is already having access points in the Internet column then also you can apply the proxy settings. For doing this you can follow the procedure from Step #7.
  • If you want to delete Access points from the Internet Section, then simply Tap on the Access Point Name, a Popup menu will appear with an option to Delete. Simply click on Delete option.

You can watch the above tutorial on following video:

Hoping the above guidelines will help you in setting up Wi-Fi proxy settings on your latest Nokia phone. We will love to hear your words about this settings through comment form below.

      @ Bashar, We are also using proxy on our Nokia N8. And We are able to use Skype and Nokia Store successfully. Send your Proxy with Port, so that We can check it why its not working properly.

        I am using my university proxy with the following address:

        proxy.aub.edu.lb port: 3128

        I also have to authenticate with my own username and password.

          I think the problem is with proxys that require authentication ,might be wrong though.

            Mainly Server Address comes in numerical form, but you are using “roxy.aub.edu.lb”. We think this is the reason that you are unable to use the Wi-Fi.

    Thanks. It works for me when I am using nokia browser called “web”

    Soon as i set proxy with 10.0.0.21 port 3128. Then I open “web”, it then asks username and password for the proxy.

    When I wanted to browse from Opera Mini, it fails to connect to Internet unlike “web” (Which is nokia browser)
