Wireless Connection to PC

Can someone document or point to documentation on exactly how to connect the Z10 to a PC without the USB cable.

I have the phone connected to a power source and the PC and Phone are on the same router but they never connect. I have to use the USB cable and I always have to turn off WiFi first or that won't connect. Then quite often I forget to turn WiFi back on so I would prefer the wireless connection but I can not get that to work at all.

Re: Wireless Connection to PC

If I'm not mistaken, a wireless connection between your Z10 and your PC must be via Bluetooth; running it thru Wi-Fi is not possible.

 

 

Anybody, please correct me if you know differently.  :smileyhappy:

Re: Wireless Connection to PC

I have my Z10 connected to my laptop and pc through my WiFi router and works very well including the ability to move a file on or off my phone. requirements:: Link Installed , wireless router that your phone and your computer with link are connected to. The Z10 will conect to the pc without usb no problem as i have it set up that way. Go to settings on the Z10 then Blackberry link and enable the slider by moving it to the right . no need to check the cellular network box. You may see paired computers at the bottom when the slider is moved to the right ( wait a little to see ) if you do hold down on the computer name a few seconds untill the right slider appears and then click view files , if that works you can sync from Link wirelessly. With Blackberry Link open on your desk top click on your phone name on the lower bar the second box to the rightit should be and enable wireless sync. Nothing in your router needs changed as long as both phone and computer are on the same one. You must see paired computer name to know it is synced. Post again if any problems with it.

Hope it helps ::Robz

Re: Wireless Connection to PC

That almost works except it keeps saying "disconnected from my PC. Make sure PC is on and connected to the internet" Which it always is ?
