Ques. my nokia lumia 520 phone - not connecting to wifi.


Ans . Here are the troubleshooting steps:

  • Ensure that you have wifi turned on in your phone.
  • If you are using others' wifi be sure to check if the router isn't configured to reject unknown devices.
  • Restart your wifi modem.
  • Check that the password you are entering for the wifi is correct.
  • In your phone go to settings> WiFi > advanced> tap and hold your wifi network> in the menu that comes up tap delete. Now go back and then reconnect to your network.


If these things do not help, then to solve your problem we would like to know more about your query. Please answer the following questions in the comments section below:

  1. Is this the first time that you are connecting your phone to the WiFi or it worked fine before.
  2. Does the problem occur only with this WiFi router or happens with any other Wifi that you try to connect to?
  3. What is the problem exactly? Does it connect and after that you are unable to browse the internet? Or it just plainly refuses to connect.(What message do you get?)

    1. Try connecting your Lumia to your friend's WiFi connection,if it works there then your router is at fault, if not then your phone. You need to identify the culprit the we will assist you further..

    1. Check if it works on your laptop or not so as to find the culprit if it is the phone or your internet provider

  5. Very true, this might be the problem being faced by Imtiaz, even the hex key values for the special characters in windows phone's keyboard differs.

    My Lumia 520 used to connect to open Wi-Fi, now I can't get the Wi-Fi menu to even open (to select an open network and then proceed to accept the waiver). When I press on the Wi-Fi option under Settings, the screen blinks and takes me back to the Settings menu. I have tried a reset (vol down + power button for 15 seconds) and taking the battery out multiple times. I can connect to Wi-Fi where the passwords are stored (my home Wi-Fi), but not to those where a waiver is required (like at a hospital or hotel). My husband and daughter have the exact same phones and have no problems. I did not have problems until mid-way through the week at the hospital. I've compared settings between my husband's phone and mine as well as updated my phone, all to no avail. HELP! I'm going to be spending a lot of time in the hospital/hotel and I'd like to be connected!
