Re: 5ghz Wifi doesn't work in Flight-Mode with Wif...

5ghz Wifi doesn't work in Flight-Mode with Wifi turned ON Lumia 820

** Lumia 820 **

 

Turn Flight-Mode [ON].   This disables all wireless connections, including phone network, bluetooth, and wifi AS EXPECTED.  

 

Now manually turn Wifi [ON].  5ghz networks will not show as available.  2.4ghz networks both show, and connect normally.

 

Turn Flight-Mode [OFF].  5ghz networks now show and work normally.  This is non-sensicle.

 

Can anyone confirm that their phone contains the same bug.

My lumia 820 does that too. Can find no work around on the phone to get it to work.

Thanks for the confirmation that it doesn't work properly Mugzy.   

 

This is clearly a software bug that needs addressing and was overlooked in testing. 

 

 Is there a formalised bug report medium for this kind of issue??  It's not a user error, it's an actual, duplicable problem.

I'm a little surprised that no Nokia rep seems to be able to respond to a bug that can be duplicated.

 

Am I posting on the wrong forum or something??

you would need to ring nokia themselves or visit a nokia store to report this as an issue. Whilst this forum is the nokia forum, its for the community to help each other.. Nokia reps rarely discuss issues on here. They may make announcements from time to time.

Having said that both the moderators and some nokia staff do visit the pages to keep an eye on things such as these issues, even though they don't comment on them directly.

I would be keen to see if this issue is related to the firmware or the hardware. Obviously if its hardware related then maybe Nokia can look at it for future models, if it firmware related then Microsoft may be able to fix it in some future release.
