    @ClarkyEWK, I hope the Black firmware update helps you - but it didn't help me.

    However an update from my environment, I replaced my router (again) with the Netgear Nighthawk R7000, and so far the issue has not occurred. Differences in setting up this router:
    1. I did not place my new router in DMZ (it sits behind my AT&T Uverse gateway)
    2. I used new network names
    3. I also used new WPA 2 AES passwords

    I'll give an update if the issue occurs again; I'm going to slowly restore my network configuration (SSIDs, passwords, and DMZ) over the next week or two

    @chsoriano, thanks for your reply.

    Apparently the problem might be to use the netgear router in cascade to another one.
    Like you, I have the gateway supplied by my ISP that I connected to the WAN port of my Netgear DGND4000. All of this seems to bother my Nokia Lumia 920,
    simply open the photos in an album located on Skydrive or Facebook through the pictures hub on my Lumia 920 in wi-fi is prohibitive.
    If I do connect to the guest network, which has the same security settings as the main one, but with the only limitation of not being able to access to the local network,
    then everything works smoothly.
    In my network, only my Nokia show this issue, all other smartphones working well in the same conditions.
    I hope that your Lumia might be able to handle a better wifi connection with your new R7000, by the way, nice router ! ;)

    So just an update on my network situation:

    - I finally put my new router (Netgear R7000) in DMZ behind my AT&T U-Verse gateway
    - After a week the network is still functioning as expected when using my Windows phone. I'm not experiencing slow responses on any of the websites as before (Youtube, Wikipedia, Facebook primarily)
    - Added my wireless printer (802.11g 2.4Ghz device) and that has not impacted the phone either
    - After several days, I also enabled QoS (downstream) and prioritized my phone and surface over wi-fi. No apparent impacts.

    So overall things are going well, only thing I haven't done is rename SSID. I'm going to try that this week

    Alright, I figured it out - it has to do with IPV6 on my router. When I enabled IPV6 on the Netgear R7000, the same sites as before (Wikipedia, YouTube, Facebook) start taking forever to load but only on my Windows Phone.

    I should note that my AT&T gateway (2Wire 3800HGV-B) doesn't support IPV6, which I suspect might have something to do with it but I can't be certain. I'm going to call AT&T tomorrow and make them send me one of the new Motorola gateways (that do support IPV6 and provide 802.11 b/g/n/ac.

    I won't believe it, I've deactivated the IPv6 support on my Netgear DGND4000, now my Nokia Lumia 920 work really fine when it's connected through wi-fi.
    So I think that Windows Phone 8 doesn't support IPv6 yet !

    Thank you, you have been decisive ! :)

    I had the same or even worse issue with my Lumia 730, I have TP-Link WR74ON router. I had issue with painfully slow wifi, No Internet Access Wifi error. I tried many settings, then I changed in Wireless Settings, Channel to 13, Mode to 11n and Channel Width to 40mhz. After that wifi connection improved, and no issues anymore.

    Posted this just in case someone else has the same issue.
