I have a router and 3 AC wall plugs access points around my house. My old Lumia 800 and all other wireless devices see all access points (3) perfectly, however, Lumia 920 only sees router. Any ideas?
Solved! Go to Solution.
AC wallplug accesspoint are commonly of the ad-hoc type which is not supported by the 920. Infact this connection type is generally considered insecure and should not be used for everyday regular connections.

Very few devices support all wifi standards, especially older less common ones . You will find android devices dont support ad hoc either. As far as I know the Lumia 800 and iphones dont either. However the 920 does support dual band which a lot of mobile devices still lack. So as far as mobile devices go it supports more than most.

Look, side by side. If lumia 800 doesn't support adhoc, then its not adhoc problem. As I said, my ipad2, mom's iphone and my previous lumia see all networks.
In fairness, you only said all wireless devices but fine, if all those devices you are now listing can connect then it is probably not an ad hoc issue. Do you have the make and model name for the router and wall plugs?
I had a quick look at the specification for the plugs. There is no reason why the phone shouldn't see unless they were set to invisible. Have you set up the plugs for manual configuration?
Am I right in thinking you already had all those devices when you did the quick setup? My guess is the plugs are only setup for WPS and SSID were set to invisible by default. Log into one of the plugs and have a look.
Gosh! I was hoping you wouldn't say that. There is no other obvious settings in the router settings which would block the phone seeing it and there are no settings in the phone which would stop it seeing the plugs with those settings. I presume the router is also on similar settings. They may block the connection but should not block them seeing each other. I presume you have tried restarting both. Short of resetting either or both router and phone, there is nothing else you can try your self. Only thing I can suggest is to send your phone and one of the plugs to a Nokia Care Point.

I have a nokia lumia 920 which i bought a week ago, for the first few day i have connected my 920 to a wifi network which its work perfectly, after the following day i could not connect to the same wifi and i couldn't find the network again. i've checked and reset my router few times and i get the same problem.
Please help if anyone here can help me to solve this problem.
