Anyone found a solution for this,.. ? All credit to ffcphone for the help, but I'd like it to work without help from my Pc.

All I can find is loads of similar unresolved threads on the net, and the beeb clearly don't give a monkeys.

Slightly off topic, how long does it take you guys with N96s to download a half hour iPlayer programme directly to your N96 via WiFi. I'm just downloading the latest Omid Djalili Show episode which is around 45MB in size via our work ADSL connection which is fairly quick. If I was downloading a 45MB Windows Update, for example, it would download in a few seconds.

Via my N85 and WiFi, however, it's so far taken 22 minutes and I've downloaded 31.7MB (66%).

Even taking into account the necessity to than hook up the USB cable and copy across to memory card, downloading via my PC first is hugely quicker.

So my question is, does the BBC provide greater bandwidth for N96 downloads are is it just as slow for you? Otherwise, why bother with the direct to phone download facility anyway.

P.S. Will let you know whether the DRM works without problem once it's eventually downloaded!

Took 34 mins to download the file in the end. Licence acquired seconds later. All's well, at least on the N85.

on my n96 downloading via wifi takes longer than it would via the pc, but not much longer to be honest. Nothing like as long as it takes you. But at least your able to acquire the fookin licence!

Licence aside, I wonder whether slow WiFi downloading is unique to my N85 or N85s in general. Anyone able to add anything to this?

At least I now know why you're keen to get the licence delivery sorted out.
