    I can't turn on Wi-Fi. It says "Can't do this right now. Try again later. If problem persists, restart phone and try again".

    This has happened to me on 3 previous builds I've tried. Which is why i couldn't stick to any of them. Always switched back to WP8.1 after and hour. Lost all my data. Don't want to go through that again.

    It's worth noting that I don't have any other issues with this latest build either. Everything is working, and i'd love to stick to this, if the wi-fi works.

    Is there anyone out there who have faced the same problem, or someone who might know what's wrong here? Please help.

    Phone: Lumia 525
    OS: W10 mobile preview 10549
    Tried: restarting and soft resetting the phone (once).

    Compared to 10166 this build is definitely faster and more reliable. Battery life has improved, but not so much. My phone has lost 5% battery after 2 hours of stand-by.

    So you don't have any problem with Wi-Fi on build 10166?

    Nope. Not on build 10549, at least.

    How's the performance? I have a 525 too and I've been wanting to take the plunge. But my only gripe is my USB port is fried. It can't be detected on my PC now. So no going back to 8.1 if I update. So what do you say? Is it good or should I wait till RTM?

    If it's your daily driver, i'd suggest you wait till the RTM. My phone has been performing smooth enough to be used as a daily driver, except for one big problem -- WiFi. Although, it's not just this build. It has happened on previous builds for me. Other people haven't reported this issue yet.

    The reason i'd ask you to wait till RTM is because, different people, different phones are having different levels of problems. So just because it went smooth for me (except wifi), doesn't mean it'll go smooth for you.
