    No problems here. I connect to WiFi at home and work everyday. And I have no problems connecting to WiFi at Starbucks, McDonald's and even my local supermarket last week.

    Is the network protected in some way?

    Am having the same problem here. Yet another reason to ditch Nokia Lumia Windows phones.

    Seems to be intermittent. Doesn't want to connect to open wifi networks (eg BT Wifi, O2, Macdonalds etc) when my very cheap android tablet can do flawlessly.

    Is there a solution to what must be by now a 'known problem'????

    No such issues here.

    However, it may help to delete the connection and rescan. I've seen this work on laptops, androids and iPhones that are having problems with specific WiFi access points.

    I've seen my Windows PC have this kind of issue, while my Android phone works perfectly. Typical case is that the network is unencrypted, but Windows sees it as encrypted for some reason. It asks for a key (which doesn't exist), and then cannot connect.
    The work-around on the PC is to manually add the network and set it as "unencrypted". Then the laptop connects to it without any problems.
    Don't know if this will help you, but could be worth a go.
