Don't know if it's just me, but occasionally I'll get my Wi-Fi tab (in Action Center and Settings) reporting that networks are "available" but it can't connect to any. Even my own network to which I connect all the time.
I have discovered that after a Reboot everything is back to normal. Wi-Fi connects fine.
I seem to have isolated it to when you leave a premises still connected Wi-Fi and let it drop-off you get this behaviour.
But surely you shouldn't have to turn Wi-Fi off every time you leave a place!!!
save my lumia 1520. I made the mistake of flashing my lumia 1520 (RM-937) with a lumia 1520 (RM-938) ROM ever-since my phone started acting out. I flashed the phone back to its original ROM which is Hong-kong ROM with windows phone recovery tool, it has not fixed the issue. The phone does not connect to GSM network anymore. It appears that the band might have been messed up.
As of this morning I have not been able to connect my AT&T 1520 Lumia to my wireless network. Last night I did the Denim upgrade via the same network. Android tablets and iPhones having no issues connecting. Have restarted the router, verified MAC Address. Deleted MAC from access control. Disabled all security (made it an open network) and it still will not connect.
Nokia lumia 1520 DP8.1 connected to wifi but unable to access internet. It shows the connection as "limited"
1. never had this issue in wp8.0
2. all other gadgets (laptop, note, galaxy tab) do not have issue with connection and internet to the wifi router at home
3. NL1520 sometimes have internet connection when connected, but I cannot tell the pattern (I thought it was limit of connection, but it wasn't).
4. If connect my laptop to router, and then make my laptop as an internet router(use Spotify for example), NL1520 can connect to laptop's wifi and ALWAYS have internet connection (this has been my work around solution)
5. NL1520 can connect to other router in public just fine, so only my router at home.. but fact the other gadgets has no issue, I assume it is NL 1520 issue
I just got my Lumia 1520 handy but when I tried to connect it to the local Wifi hotspot (WPA2 encrypted), it times out saying "Connection unsuccessful - No response from the network". I searched the net for solutions and based on those, I restarted the Wifi Router, my Lumia 1520. Also I did a factory reset of the device.
But still, it is unable to connect to Wifi hot spot.I also tried connecting with another Wifi hotspot (WPA2), but nothing good happened. My other devices like Surface, Lumia 1020 are able to connect to the same hotspot without any issues. There is no restrictions on no. of Wifi connection as I am broadcasting the Wifi from my laptop (Windows 8.1 Update 1) as a virtual wifi hotspot.
I'm coming from the Android/Apple ecosystem. I used an Android phone as my daily driver and an iPad for all my media stuff. My Lumia is a perfect blend of both due to the screen size. My only issue is that I can't find apps to stream content from my PC to this phone.
Received my Lumia 950 XL with Windows 10 last week, and all so far so good. However, I have a few clients that a visit regularly that use hidden WIFI networks or networks that do not broadcast. These normally have to be setup manually on the device, but I can't find anywhere in Windows 10 phone settings to deal with a manual wifi connection setup?
Nokia Lumia 1520 heat up when surfing to WiFi? Lets say about 5minutes. Beside that,when surfing to Facebook,when I clicked to the image that I wanted to view,the picture would not show the entire pic but partially.
Is there a known issues with the 950XL (or Win 10 in general) regarding wifi stability. My 950XL refuses to stay connected to the 5.0GHz wifi network. After reboot it will find and connect to the network fine, but after about 10 to 15 minutes the connection drops. When I go to the available wifi list, all the 5.0 GHz networks are missing and only the 2.4 GHz ones are offered. The only way I have found to get the phone to find the 5.0 GHz ones was forcing a reboot.
While in random wifi zones, no problems. However, while i'm at home using my own network, all of a sudden i can't access the play store. says 'No Connection, Retry'.... Problem started months ago, i google it and see people with similar issue but none of their fixes worked for me.
How to connect to my company's WPA2 Enterprise WiFi. I have tried this multiple times and it never gives me the option of inputting my username and password for my network.
Steps I took: Settings--Wi-Fi--Advanced--hitting the "+" at the bottom of the page--entering the name of my Enterprise network--it asks for my password BUT it never prompts me for my username, which is required to log in.
Before it's asked: I have the latest firmware installed on my phone. This network has allowed multiple iPhones to connect and an old HTC incredible phone.
So my Nokia Lumia 1020 was upgraded to 8.1 via Preview for Developers a few months ago and Wi-Fi/Cellular data was fine. I updated to Lumia Denim at one time and for some reason, Wi-Fi did not work. I tried using the Windows Phone Recovery Tool 2.1.1 and Wi-Fi still did not work. Then I downgraded from Denim to Cyan, and Wi-Fi still didn't work. I tried the Windows Phone Recovery Tool (same version) again, and Wi-Fi did not work.
In addition, I tried adding my Wi-Fi as a hidden network. Still didn't work. By the way, my Wi-Fi is WPA2-PSK, and I have AES encryption.
So here are some specs of my Lumia 1020:
OS version: 8.10.14226.359 Firmware revision number: 3051.50009.1451.1001 Model: NOKIA 909 Carrier: AT&T Software: Windows Phone 8.1 Update
I am using Nokia Lumia 1020. It has been having a trouble auto connecting Flight Mode. I can not use my mobile as a result of that. It connecting automatically WIFI connection as well. I can not off both Flight Mode and WIFI manually as they connecting automatically.
after searching 35 pages in the 1520 forum, i have not found a solution.within the last two weeks my 1520 has lost the ability to be seen by my laptop. all updates to both phone and pc are current,phone is on PfD and current (8.1.1)laptop is windows 8.1 pro.have tried phone on another laptop with same result.have tried son's phone, also a 1520 with PfD and 8.1.1.his phone connects with no issues.is it possible i am missing something? a driver from phone, maybe?
i need to be able to connect phone to laptop. shortof a hard reset and unenrolling in PfD, what are my options.also can't send in for warranty, as this is primary device and no spare windows phone in home.
Lumia 1520 used to be flawless connecting to the paired Bluetooth in my car. Nothing has changed in the car. No updates or upgrades.
After the Denim update the phone will sometimes connect, and then after 1 or 2 successful connections, it will fail to connect although it still shows as paired. A reboot or re-pairing usually solves the issue and the cycle repeats.
I've downloaded windows 8.1 preview for Lumia 1520 all night to test this feature project my screen over Wi-Fi or Miracast but the project my screen DOES NOT WORK ON LUMIA 1520, IT SHOWS CANNOT CONNECT OVER WIFI PLEASE CONNECT USB, , secondly why music app taking so much of time to load even when I try to load it as soon as the phone starts with no background apps...
Since i upgraded my lumia 1520 to windows10, the wifi button is not working in action center. When i try to activate it from setting, the same problem and the message appears to say : Cant do this at the moment
this is my first WP, I made the jump from iPhone 5 to the Lumia 1520 with the Cyan update on ATT. I have noticed that apps like Facebook and Instagram take a long time to load updates when I am off wifi.
Since the 8.1 update hit my 1520 completely drops my home WiFi and I have to find and type the code back in every few days. An one else having this problem and a fix or how do I go back to 8.0 and I also miss the speech recognition on the 8.0 version.
