How to Use Static IP for WLAN in Nokia C3-01?

1 comment
I recently received my company issued cellphone unit which is Nokia C3-01. Aside from its sleek look and touch & type feature, it is already WIFI capable. I tried connecting it to our company's wireless network and it connected fine but my problem was similar to my android device, it uses DHCP IP address which is inside the firewall and requires proxy settings in the browser to be able to browse the web. Since I haven't found a way to set the proxy settings on the browser level, I tried looking for ways to change the dynamic IP into Static IP. At first, I thought it was not possible because I already tried everything and I can't find the correct menu to configure the Static IP. Fortunately for me, I stumbled on it when I was about to give up.
