When I go to my car, I turn on Bluetooth for handsfree. If I go back in to my place and Bluetooth is still on, I could not connect to wifi. It sometimes crashes whole network of laptops, tablet, and cells. But my VoIP phone which is connected to the same router still works - meaning the entire router is not affected..
My solution is to turn off the Bluetooth and then the wifi works. So there could be issues with wifi and Bluetooth interference.

I have this issue with t-mobile lumia 810s. 2 of them. Very annoying. Will review our router settings (again...). Funny that the router works with littereally any other device that shows up. Here are my "issues" with this:
- yes. It crashes the whole wlan and rebooting the router typically takes care of it.
- I started a new billing cycle yesterday haven't left the house and find myself 25mb down in my dataplan. In other words: sometimes you think you're on the wlan (streaming music) but you actually use your data plan. This can drain a limited data plan very quickly. Visibility on the phone of what network I use (wifi or t-mobile) is totally obscure.

I've had the same problems. Also with Nokia N73 and C7. My solutions:
1. Broadcast SSID
2. Turn off exclusive 802.11n mode, use 802.11b/g/n.
3. Don't use fixed channels above 11 on 2.4GHz freq (Europe)
4. If this doesn't work take it back to the store to no avail.

Hi there. I just encountered a problem since yesterday that matches exactly like yours!?
Suddenly my lumia 920 can't see my home wifi. Rebooted phone & router for so many times but the problem still occurs. My iPhone & laptop can connect just fine.
So did you manage to solve the problem?

Fixed issue by enabling always on Wifi, it now reconnects normally, but if I uncheck always on wifi, it will have problems reconnecting.
This is absolutely annoying bug especially since I use win8 controller app. In order for me to "remotely access pc", I have to get up and restart wifi first, which eliminates the point and same thing repeats 5 mins alter when screen times out again.

If your wifi router can support multiple wireless SSID/ Name, assign a new name for it and let the current & new name up together. Now my lumia 920 can detect my home network and connected to it, so far it is working.

I'm having exactly the same problem with my Lumia 920. Suddenly can no longer detect home wifi. Rebooting phone & router didn't work either. Just updated to Portico & was hoping for a fix. Unfortunately, still no fix for this mysterious wifi detection problem.

Problem solved - it turns out the router channel setting was at AUTO. Therefore when it switches to other channel due interference from neighbour's wifi, the Lumia was unable to detect it. Disabling the "auto" & fixing the channel in the router restored the home wifi detection on the phone.

A lot of people are quick to blame the 920. More often than not it is 'other' hardware where the glitch occurs.
I love my 920. It has performed perfectly since I got it. Doing everything I have asked it to do without a hitch. Great phone, Nokia!!!!

AT&T customer support told me to turn on AIRPLANE MODE and then count to 30 seconds then turn AIRPLANE MODE off. After that reconnect to the desired WIFI network all would be right within the world...And it was!!! I haven't had a problem since! Hope it helps.

I have similar issues with Lumia 520, My windows phone has started giving problem in WiFi system in my home network after working fine for one month, however other android phones, laptop are working in my home network. The WiFi system same phone works in all the other network. I have changed my router password and name, but every thing remains as it is.
Anyone can give me the solution please

I have similar issues as well. It's mostly fine at home, but at university, it's really intermittent. I can't have a Skype conversation for even a couple of minutes on WiFi. It disconnects, bad quality, etc. Same with viber, video streaming, and other services. However, if I turn off the Wifi and use the LTE everything is really nice and smooth. I have a lumia 920.

I had this problem starting in early 2013. My 920 could no longer connect to my home Belkin network which had previously worked just fine and could still connect to my office network which is on a mac airport. The SSID would show up and it would try to connect for a while but gave the same error "cannot connect because there was no response from the network". Tried restarting the phone and got the same problem. I figured it had to be a setting on my home router... My Belkin router broadcasts on b/g/n at dual bandwith 20/40MHz I tried a couple settings changing the security from WPA2 to WPA, made sure MAC Address filtering was off....
WHAT FIXED THE PROBLEM.. the SSID was Ryan&Krisi I changed it to RyanKrisi (removing the &) and the Wireless channel was set to auto, change that to a fixed number. Now everything works!

Been dealing with this issue for awhile now. I swear the L920 is cursed. They keep saying things are being fixed with this and that update, but nothing ever really happens.
All I can say is next November can't come soon enough.

Had my Lumia 920 in for repair TWICE for this fault. Just got it back this week - with a note that it works fine, and it still doesn't work for me. Just searching and searching and searching... Can't even turn the wifi off. Doesn't help putting it i flight mode either.
And it's not that my "home network" has the wrong settings (se the pictur: https://dl.dropboxusercontent.com/u/...7/ML__7346.jpg)...
Contacted Nokia via facebook and all they say is to go to the store where I bought it. Problem is - I bought it on internet.
Hate Nokia and Microsoft right now.
Before you ask: It's swedish... That's why my English is so bad:)
