    This has been happening with my L830 for a few weeks now. It's infuriating and very inconvenient. The only fix I've found, when I absolutely need a WiFi connection, is to switch the phone off, wait a minute, then switch it on again and it connects immediately to the WiFi source it previously wouldn't accept. This might be worth trying for you but, hopefully, someone may have a better solution for both of us.

    Does this happen with only saved wifi hot spots or if the wifi is an open network?

    Also, can we assume you're on a OS build of 1607 or 1703?

    My 830 is on 1607. It happens on both but most annoyingly on saved networks that were always trouble free until recently.
    Thanks for your reply

    Does disconnecting and reconnecting help?

    Also sometimes with hotel WiFi hot spots you need to re-login via the browser, this usually occurs when roam between different nodes in a WiFi network due to either poor set up or failing equipment.

    Thank you for replying. Disconnect / Reconnect doesn't help. The only fix I've found is to switch off the phone for a couple of minutes and then it reconnects automatically. I think you're correct about it being due to failing equipment though. Unfortunately it's my 830 that seems to be failing.

    Sux but maybe try forgetting all the networks that are troublesome. RE-add them one by one and se if that helps. I might have some other ideas... I think I saw this come up on a XDA thread too.

    I've seen this happen before to myself. It's alway been on devices that natively ran WP8 and upgraded. I'll keep checking to see what this is.
