  1. Hello,
    I have bought a TP-LINK TL-WN322G (wireless USB) and I try to set up a WAP using it as a WAP to connect my NOKIA N95 8GB wirelessly to the PC and Internet, but I can't.
    Can anyone help me how to do this?
    Thanks in advance!

    the NOKIA N95 8GB is a phone, and making an encripted connection to it is
    dependent upon the phone.

    first try to make any connection (ie: without encryption)

    btw: the typical means to use a cell phone as an internet connection is to WIRE the device to the system.

    You may find that the cell phone running on 2.4 ghz will conflict with the TL-WN322G

    Do you mean that the wireless USB cannot be a WAP?

    I SUSPECT that will be an issue -- try non encrypted first :)

    I tried everything with and without encryption!!
    When I use the USB's software and I change the stick from "Station" to "Access Point" the icon of connection (the two small PC's on the quick launch) get a yellow triangle with an exclamation and a small balloon says that the connection has got low connectivity.
    NOKIA cannot find it even with encryption or not.
    From the Windows' "New wireless network" I can't make my stick WAP.

    I would conclude it is not going to work as you expected
