Lumia 710 WiFi does not find any networks in range

Lumia 710 

Windows: 7.10.8773.98  

Firmware: 1600.3030.8773.12120


Switch Wifi ON, display says "Searching..." goes on and on but never finds any "findable" networks that I can find with other devices.


Any ideas?


This is a used phone and I don't know if wifi ever worked... however the phone is almost brand new and everything else works just fine.

Hi pedroVirgilio,



Are you connecting to your home Wi-Fi? Try to reset your router and then check again. You can also soft reset your phone by pressing and holding the power button for 10 seconds. Make sure your wifi is visible.

Re: Lumia 710 WiFi does not find any networks in range

Thank you moderator.


 We did reset,as a matter of fact we did a Master Reset....  same result.


I am wondering if there is a switch that should be on and isn't or off and it is confllictiing with something.


Now this is my son's phone and he is at school where they have wifi everywhere but he can't connect. 


He hasn't been home since he's got the new (used) phone so that we could't experiment with our router.


But we were together this weekend at a restaurant that has wifi and i easily connected with my phone but he couldn't connect with his 710. It just says "searching ..."  forwever.
