    For some reason it will not always connect to my home network and would only work after I have restarted the phone / and or re-enabled wifi.

    I am having the same issue. Every so often when I lock the screen and unlock it later it will not reconnect. And there is no way for me to reconnect to the network as it does not appear in my wifi list. When I do a reboot, it automatically connects.

    Try deleting the SSID from your wifi settings, reboot your phone, let it find it and reconnect and see if that helps you out?

    Holy cow, the exact same thing is happening to me! I thought my L920 was defective or something! If the WiFi on mine cuts off and I turn the screen back on to reconnect to WiFi, it crashes my home network! Nothing is able to connect.

    Not the same issue I am having. Currently I simply cannot reconnect to the hidden network. I will wait for the new update before defining it as a new issue.

    windows phone 8 doesn't play well with hidden SSIDS. Something that was never intended to be supported, and doesn't add any layer of security anyway.

    Mine connects to non-broadcasted network everyday. So its supported.

    May not be the most secure way of controlling who connects to your wireless. But it is highly effective for keeping 99% of the casual users off it.

    a glitch implies that it's happening to everyone. since i dont have this problem at home or at work and i dont see many others saying they have the same issue, it looks isolated. then again, i dont connect to hidden networks. all the networks i use are public with WEP security.

    Because it works sometimes, does not make it "supported". The whole point of an SSID was to SEE it, and then add your own security to it (wpa2-psk or something).

    I am just telling you the facts.

    Let me ask you a question then... if your SSID is encrypted and password protected, why would it matter if anyone else "sees" it? What exactly are they getting on, if they can't get past your password? Seems to me that it will just simply prevent a casual person from seeing it, in the same way that it keeps my car from being seen by people if I put in the garage vs leave it out in the driveway.

    I have similar issue. Not sure is it due recent Nokia update or not but yesterday I updated my phone on work and when I come to home - phone won't able to connect to home WIFI(I don't have any issues with WIFI before). But my situation is even worse - phone don't see my home WIFI at all:( It shows the list of my neighbor WIFI even with almost no signal strength. But it doesn't show my network. I rebooted phone and router number of times. I delete SSID on phone. I even changes some network parameters on router - no luck.
    My laptop and wife's iphone see and connect to WIFI without any problems. Anyone have any idea whats going on?

    I'm having a very similar problem here. Once i turn my phone on, the wifi works , but when i leave the wifi area and try a different network it wont connect. THen i walk back to the initial netwrok and it doesnt connect again. A quick re-start solves the problem, but this is a basic error. Not happy.

    Same issue here. I also had the issue with my Lumia 900. It happens less on the 920, but still happens. It seems like it can't get authenticated. Sometimes just clicking on the SSID again gets it to connect and sometimes wifi needs to be turned off and back on again.

    A quick update from me. I can fix the issue by turning off Bluetooth. Everything works like a charm now. I guess i'll have to wait a while for hands free use in my car though :(

    I am having this issue as well. My wife's Lumia 920 cannot connect to our home wifi network. However, my Surface, my Focus S, and our two laptops have no problem connecting. When I try deleting the network, and re-adding it, it says there is no response from the network, and to try again later. This is really frustrating. I have to say that I have not been thrilled with WP8, because this is not the first bug I have run into =(

    Update: I reset my router, and the phone was then able to connect, but the 920 is the only device that had a problem, so I don't know why the reset was necessary. It is unacceptable to have to reset the router just for the 920, and I may consider replacing the phone if this behavior continues after the Portico update.

    Did it ever connect before and then suddenly lose it's connection?

    I've had to reset my router for a Visio smart tv, nook eReader, ps3 and previous android phones, forgetting to pay the cable bill. Not too big of a deal. Beats factory resetting the individual devices.

    If it happens again, have it replaced through warranty.
