    Yeah, I thought that was unlikely but I just thought I'd put it out there anyway.

    Weird that I'm not having those issues anymore, I used to get them before the newest DP update came out, now - none.

    I updated to WP8.1 DP on my Lumia 920. Router at my home works in 5G and 2.4G mode. I got wifi issues if I connect to 5G network, works fine with 2.4G network.

    Well now happens from time to time, not frequently as before I guess. Though, now i'm back in my room, got tired of the living room so came back here xD. The phone signal shows just 1 little dot of strenght and then I check again maybe in a minute and it's full. So I really don't know if it's working good or not. The PC bars show 4/5 5/5 all the time.

    Hi,

    I am using Lumia 1520 with DP8.1, I had this problem for quiet a while, i even tried with 4 different routers and setting but still the "limited and no internet access issue prolongs."

    It doesn't fix even when i turn the wifi on/off, tried with the flight mode or when i turn off and turn on the phone. While all the other devices connected to the same wifi works just fine.

    Hope there will be a fix for this in the 8.1 official release.

    So do all the 1520 users face the same problem?

    I did open up new thread regarding this issue... I am still having this issue from time to time... actually, it went good 100% for the past 7 days, and suddenly the issue started again 1-2 days ago, until now...

    Still no solution, and I still believe its wp8.1 issue..

    one workaround solution: ROUTER/MODEM -> PC (use spotify)-> NL1520 = ALWAYS connect 100%

    The signal bar doesn't work in 8.0. Reportedly 8.1 fixed it and now reports the real signal strength your phone sees.
    in 8.1 it was just a icon or image of wifi , but in 8.1 it shows real signal strength.

    I've been having this issue with my Lumia 1020 as well. It will go limited while at home randomly, and either turning the phone off/on, turning off/on wifi, or going into/out of airplane mode fixes it temporarily.

    I have an airport extreme and time capsule that are bridged over a TP-Link wall plug. Initially I thought it was my 5GHz network since my girlfriend's iPhone was having issues too, but now that we only use the 2.4GHz network I'm still having problems. This is even after resetting and re-creating all our network settings.

    Happens almost everyday on my 928 when I get home from work. Turn on/off wifi or the phone seems to fix it. I don't remember ever seeing it happen while I'm at home. Only the first time it tries to connect. To me it seems an issue with changing from work wifi to home wifi.

    For some time now my 1020 on the latest DP would have terrible wifi speed, then go to limited connectivity, then no internet. Meanwhile my wife who has a 1020, also on DP with all the updates has no issues at all. I decided to roll back to 8.0 so I could get Cyan and see if a release build would fix my issues. On the bright side I've yet to get no internet, but I still frequently get limited connection, which is just as bad. No settings have changed on my home network.

    I have issues with 930 on 8.1 with the DP update 1. Works at home, but at work shows limited connectivity. Despite this and the fact there's no wireless icon showing the wireless is clearly working!

    My HTC 8X on 8.1 DP didn't exhibit the problem.

    Guess it's something to do with the wireless drivers.

    Wi-fi connectivity is better for me with 8.1 update 1 than 8. The only thing worse is that there is no option to turn off the device's wi-fi when screen locks.

    I wonder whether the manufacturer is aware of this; the 620 has issues with WIFI. Mine has problems with both Bluetooth and WIFI toggles; they are both dead. Visiting the web for answer has not yielded anything useful. The Nokia Care Centre in Nairobi want to hold the set for seven working days and some ksh.500/= and no one knows what else they will charge for.

    i would like to tell you that there is non of problem of your windows phone it might be because of your WIRLESS
    WI-FI ROUTER
    you have to check settings of your router (e.g as i open - 192.168.1.1 for setting my router)
    WHAT YOU HAVE TO DO-
    1) Authentication Type-WPA2-PSK
    2) Encryption- AES
    3) Pre-Shared Key- (ONLY CHAR TYPE KEY - e.g: wirelesswifi)

    and now go to you windows phone wifi settings and DELETE old WIFI router name , now YOU HAVE TO INSERT YOUR WIRELESS KEY INTO YOUR router name which will is showing there in MOBILE AND CHECK IT ! its worrrrrking :) thankyou

    its the router, 8.1 detects when there is no internet coming from the wifi and tells you its "limited" reconnecting will do the trick, some routers simply get you out when you are idle and things like that

    I have a Nokia Lumia 620 and after I updated to wp 8.1 the wifi connection is very low. IF I go further than 5 meter from the router I lost connection. When I had wp 8.0 it was working perfectly. I tried with many different routers, but the issue remains. I hardreset the phone, I updated to the latest version wp 8.10.14219.341 but the issue remains.

    Wifi works only in a range of 5 meters from the router, with original WP 8.0 version it worked perfectly, over 25 meters from the router without problems.
