Lumia 920 not reconnecting to wifi

When I go out of range from my router and come back in range the WiFi does not reconnect. When I try it says connection unsuccessful. When I deleted the network profile and readded it, it says invalid password. This resolves as soon as I restart the phone. This is really irritating.

please help.

Re: Lumia 920 not reconnecting to wifi

Having the same or similar problem.  Once wi-fi connectivity drops, have a hard time connceting.  Sometimes turning off and back on works, sometimes not.  Sometimes unplugging the router on/off works most of the time.  But I can only do that at home.  Ridiculous to ask others, can you please reset your router so I can connect.

 

Well, if someone posts what can be done to correct this, it would be appreciated.

 

thanks

The weird part is that it used to work fine. It stopped working properly recently.

Re: Lumia 920 not reconnecting to wifi

have you double-checked that in the WiFi settings in the Settings menu, that you have "Automatically connect to Wi-Fi hotspots" enabled? also try performing a soft reset (pressing the volume down and power buttons together until the phone vibrates).

The automatically connect is enabled, does the soft reset remove any data?

Re: Lumia 920 not reconnecting to wifi

It did not help, one more thing I want to add to the observations is that, when I am connected to a wifi network and i move out of reange the phone still shows that its connected to the network. When i go into the range of another wifi, my phone is still stuck on the old wifi connection. I have to disable wifi and re enable it to search for networks. 

 

It all very frustrating.

Re: Lumia 920 not reconnecting to wifi

I am thinking this has something to do with switching from timewarner to ATT, for my home internet. As a part of the switch my Apple router has been replaced with a 2WIRE for the wifi at home. I will go home and see if replacing with Apple wifi will help.
