Both my teenagers have just had upgrades to Nokia Lumina's at the weekend, from an HTC and a Huawei. Both phones are WM8 and both have the Amber update pre-installed.
Unfortunately neither phone can connect with Facebook through the Wi-Fi but CAN connect through 3G. As both tariffs are on low monthly data usage, you can begin to imagine the annoyance they are displaying at having to switch off Wi-Fi just to make Facebook sync.
Everything else works fine and I have trawled through numerous web pages and tried everything imaginable to get this to work, but no luck.
If anybody else has had similar problems across their Wi-Fi, please can you share the solution and help restore some peace back to our household.
Alas, both the previous WM8 phones worked flawlessly and my ancient HTC HD7 also works without a blip.

I have the same issue. The link which this thread was moved is not the same issue, the other users receive an error message, while I don't receive an error message.
On my Lumia 925 if I have wi-fi enabled on my Belkin N+ Enhanced router I can sign-up to linkedin, gmail, microsoft and so on, except facebook. When I try to sign-in to facebook in "email+accounts" section, or in standalone app, or in browser it says there is no connection.
If I disable wi-fi and I have 3G data enabled, all of above works fine signing-in to facebook without any issue.
So the issue is that facebook can't be accessed over wi-fi connection.
Is there a solution to this issue ?
I have not seen this issue and have no problem receiving and sending messages from/to Facebook using either the built in account or the FB app through either cellular data or Wi-Fi.
