    A friend of ours has given me an old Windows Mobile Phone to look at … it is Windows 8.1 (Nokia Lumia).

    It is unable to connect giving the error, “The internet and I aren’t talking right now” and after searching the internet as much as I can I have found a number of solutions which don’t work.

    One is to set the phone’s DNS to OpenDNS or Google DNS … that doesn’t work because I can’t find a way to set the phone’s DNS (I read somewhere that it can’t be done on a Lumia). Another is to update to the latest version of Windows which I can’t seem to do (either with or without WiFi) so …

    Has anyone any suggestions as to how I can sort this problem because there doesn’t seem to be a solution (though I may well be searching for the wrong thing).
