Eircom Netopia WEP key from SSID

Eircom LogoWell, it’s long been possible, but not much publicised. Almost anywhere in ireland you could get wifi internet access for free with a little know-how and a copy of the eircom wifi install CD.

Nokia E65 supported codecs

Based on a little sip debugging, these appear to be the supported audio codecs on the Nokia E65

  • AMR
  • PCMU
  • PCMA
  • iLBC
  • G729

And here you have it :)
