    I have a lumia 520 and all is work fine but one day when I go to connect to my wifi, I could not to connect. When I tap to any wifi, he does not require a password, but displays a message "Your phone can't connect to the wifi network -name of wifi-". 520 found all wifi nearby but I can't connect to any. I try hard reset and find fix on internet but nothing helped.

    Are you running 8.1? I am and the same issue on my 520 started yesterday. I'll try a hard reset today. Have you tried to flash the firmware with the Nokia tool?

    Yes, I running 8.1. I try hard reset but nothing happens. No i don't, if a hard reset don't solve problem to you, can you try flash and tell me if that helps.

    Soft reset on lumia 520 volume down + power key?

    I posted this question but i 'm not been logged in

    Just upgrades to 8.1 and cant connect to network any more (home or office)
    Had the same issue when I first used the phone. It would refuse to connect to home network, while it was ok at the store.
    Tried hard reset , still no luck
    Do I throw the phone out of the window or windows out of the phone ?

    Microsoft , are you listening ?

    Folks,

    Just select the network and delete the same. lumia searches for the available network and this time you should be able to enter the WIFI password.

    Hope this helps.

    See below post. There they mention it's router related. Not sure if this is also valid for a office router.

    First of all we are not Microsoft. We are a fan-based website and people here are trying to help.
    What you could try (if you not already did it).
    1 Soft Reset.
    2 Go to SETTINGS > WiFi >manage > and there delete the office network and add it again.
    3 Ask your IT department for help.
    4 Contact Microsoft.

    Settings>WiFi>Manage Works !!
    Sometimes WiFi already in the List couldn't be connected so easily.
    This is the Only Reason. ;)

    Here is what worked for me. I selected the Wi-Fi settings and chose the "Manage" option. Delete any saved "OPEN" networks. As soon as I did that I was immediately able to connect to secure networks again.

    Turn ON Airplane Mode and then Turn it OFF.
    Once done, try connecting to the Wifi Network.
    Worked for me.

    Check whether unfortunately did you put static ip address. Just disable the static ip address so that wifi can provide new network settings.

    My 635 has been doing this morning. Tried all sorts, including battery removal. All other devices are happy with the access point.

    Eventually I reseated the SIM, and everything burst into life.

    Three things you need to do :
    1. Under manage wifi setting delete the old wifi network.
    2. under mobile + Sim, go to for limited wifi connectivity and select " don't use mobile data"
    3. Search for wifi and you should be able to connect.

    If you want SOFT RESET, you need Windows 7 or newer version, then download Nokia recovery tool, and download newer WP version. For more search in Microsoft. When you press up down turn off down you see hard reset. Do with Nokia recoveey or reset only you have backup; your files will be deleted.

    sometimes it's just a matter of setting the time up ! believe it or not, just try.. :-)

    if you notice that the time on the phone is not the right one, just set it up so the system will log on the Microsoft account and everything will follow. Good luck
