    Anybody please post your router settings, if you get it to work. Suggest me if you want me to try another router where I can use B/G/N simultaneously. The work around solutions posted here are disabling the N and keep only B/G, which I do not want to do.

    Except other devices do work with the same WiFi router.
    Yes I do understand as my Surface 2 did work fine with my Linksys router, Nokia must be using a different WiFi chipset that has some issues with certain routers.
    I have seen this issue in the past especially with Apple products so I am not that surprised by this

    Folks, I got it working. Modified 2.4ghz to only b/g and 5ghz to N only in router settings.. It solved the problem for me. I disconnected and connected to the network again so it connects to the 5ghz N for faster speeds. Now my dell venue pro is also working fine without issues. I hope this helps.

    I believe an update will be needed to provide better compatibility for a wider ranger of access points, chipsets, etc. This is a common type of issue on launch that other devices have seen, including Apple's.

    Time to hurry up and wait...

    I think us 2520 users should post what wifi routers we are using successfully and ones that do not work

    I'm using an Asus RT-N66U router. Works perfectly for the last three days that I've had the 2520. On Verizon.

    I've connected to about 4 different routers since I've had my 2520 and have not had any disconnects. It's a Verizon one.

    Have you guys tried setting a static IP on the L2520 as opposed to having one dynamically assigned by the router?

    Yes, but I am at multiple locations, so a static IP that works at home won't work at work #1 or work #2. Perhaps RT has a network profile app?

    True, I guess setting a static address tied to a mac address would be out of the question as one generally does not have access to the router settings at their work place. In terms of an app I wouldn't know as I don't even have a RT device and no longer running 8.1 in vmware. I guess you could play with the Netsh command but that maybe to much hassle, as creating a .bat file is may not be possible in RT (again don't have RT to confirm)
    link below:Configure TCP/IP from the Command Prompt
    According to MS: Managing wireless network profiles - Microsoft Windows Help- Netsh works for RT.

    Hi everyone,
    I too was experiencing the exact same symptoms with my AT&T 2520 purchased on Monday. Wifi would drop out about every 10 minutes, sometimes quicker. My first attempted solution was to update the firmware on my wireless router, and that has 100% fixed my problem. No more dropouts and it's been smooth sailing. Man I love this piece of hardware.

    Router: D-Link DIR-655 (Hardware version A3)
    Original Firmware: 1.11
    Updated Firmware: 1.37

    I was rolling with a firmware that was 6 years old - shame on me.

    Don't rely on the router's built in web server's "Check Online Now for Latest Firmware Version" feature. Mine kept saying it had the latest version at 1.21! I'm hoping that this update fixes the intermittent lost WiFi I have been experiencing on all my devices.

    I assume you were giving other users a head's up. I went to the product support page on the company website, which everyone should do.

    I believe this is the same router I have. For it to be one of the better routers, I'm not really impressed. If my son is watching Netflix on his Wii and I want to download a Prime movie on my Kindle Fire, the Kindle will not finish loading and the Wii buffers the download, way too much.
    That's not necessarily a problem with the router. It will share the available bandwidth between the Wii and the Kindle Fire (and any other devices). It doesn't have a way to know that some data is real time video.

    Several years ago, I began to have serious issues with my router, a Linksys WRT310. It would randomly stop routing traffic out of the gateway, effectively dropping internet access. I installed DD-WRT in place of the default linksys firmware. Not only was the router rock solid reliable after that, I also gained some features that Linksys wasn't providing: isolated guest wifi access and more. It made me a true believer, I wouldn't buy another home router that was not supported by dd-wrt.

    I've decided to return my 2520 in exchange for a surface 2. I've had numerous Wifi woes with this tablet, and while beautiful it must be functional above all else?

    That is correct. I forgot that the router didn't properly check for updates. I just thought I might not be alone on that.

    The intermittent lose of wi fi is usually down to the wi fi simply dying on your router ( i have gone through 11 routers in the past 5 years... belkin, cisco, netgear, dlink, thomson etc - using ddwrt didnot help), you can confirm this by turning your router off and then on after a few seconds and if the dropping recurs you have no choice but to either get yourself another router or claim for a replacement if you are with-in your warranty.

    You might also want to see what channel is being used by other routers and set your router to a channel not in use. Channel 6 is default on most routers. I have mine on channel 10. No other routers in my apartment building use channel 10, but 4 others use channel 6.
