How does that fare with modern web browsers/devices?

My N800 is my alarm clock. Better than any other alarm clock or Chumby. I see an N770 occasionally on Craig's List in my town, but can't imagine they get many responses.

I don't even use my 770 anymore.
I hope I can give it some use in the future.

My 770 stopped finding the WiFi network when bg/n networks began to pop up in the vicinity. It became useless without WiFi.

I am still using my 770 everyday as my Media Player, Internet Radio, Internet TV, RSS Reader, Weather Forecast, Remote Desktop, Last.FM, not that much internet browsing cos too slow. But I mostly use it on my bed, don't carry it outside my house anymore. The thing I like it is I can put a magic tape on the back of the case and stick it to anywhere I want, kitchen, bathroom, living room, toilet, etc.

It depends on your circumstances. If the n signals come from somewhere other than the network to which you want to connect, the body-shielding method is highly effective in attenuating the n signals, while leaving your own b/g signal with enough strength to make the connection. On the other hand, I doubt that body-shielding would enable any connection to a b/g/n network. Once the connection is made, you can use your b/g without having to shield the 770 from n signals.

Judging by the hostile tone of some posts related to body-shielding, the main difficulty is psychological. [EDIT: I TAKE BACK THIS REMARK, AND APOLOGIZE TO ALL USERS WHO HAVE BEEN UNFAIRLY MALIGNED BY IT. See post #15 below.]

I can not explain why this method is so effective. I am fairly sure that my neighbor in the next apartment uses an n-type router. (Using WifiInfo on my N800, I went into an emergency stairwell, 45 metres from her apartment and surrounded by a concrete wall with a steel door. Her signal strength was still 57%.) Nevertheless, I can search and connect the 770 in my own apartment beside hers if I use the body-shielding technique, even though her network is found by the search.

Some users say they can connect if they shield their 770 inside a steel bowl. Personally, I have not found that to be any help. You are welcome to try.

The idea of body-shielding is to let your own flesh absorb the extraneous wifi microwaves. It involves pressing the 770 against your abdomen and covering as much as possible with your hands. It is possible to do this successfully while leaving enough space to see the screen, although I do not recommend that. (It is physically awkward, and perhaps that is why some people write about "contortions".)

My own preference is to exploit the interval of about 15 seconds between successive searches. It is only during the actual operations of searching and connecting that the 770 has to be covered. My 770 (running 2008HE) takes about 10 seconds to complete its initial search. If I hold the screen against my abdomen and cover the sides and back with my hands as much as possible during that 10 seconds, I can then turn the screen upwards (where I can see it) and select my own network. The 770 must then be covered again immediately while it connects to the network - about 6 seconds more.

This all works more easily if you use the center button of the scroll key to initiate the search and the connection, rather than poking with the stylus. You can hold your thumb on that button while you position the 770 by your abdomen, and press the button when you are ready to complete the shielding. There is no need to expose the 770 for more than a second before the search or connection begins.

If you really hate the idea of body-shielding, take a look at this post:
