    I have followed your steps and everything was running perfect. Then my phone (Nokia N8) dropped the wireless connection, it seems to keep the connection for two minutes then loses it.. Can you help me to set up a secure stable connection between the two?

    Hello ?"Between the two" you said,I assume you are using your N8 as a wi-fi hotspot to connect your laptop. If your 3G signal is strong enough, it doesn't drop.I have observed this too but by changing the location where the signal is strong (showing all the bars)it works fine. In fact I'm using it right now.The paid version of Joikuspot is very stable and cheap too.
