    Connecting to non-router wifi


    Besides my wireless router, I have several other wifi "networks" in my home, that do not provide Internet service.

    For example, one of my endoscope cameras has such a network.

    When I disconnect from the router and connect to one of these, the "WLAN-Autoconfig" service part of Windows automatically disconnects the wifi every few minutes; the Event Viewer error is:


    WLAN AutoConfig detected limited connectivity, attempting automatic recovery.


    Recovery Type: 4

    Error Code: 0x0

    Trigger Reason: 7

    IP Family: 0



    Is there a way to disable this behaviour, maybe by changing something in the Registry?

    If I stop the "WLAN-Autoconfig" service, wireless stops working completely.

    :)

  2. I cant access to my wifi router

    Wifi router

    Hello marcosamerio..
    If you are unable to connect access your wifi router then there must be some problem with connection. I think the following step scan help you to connect it properly to wireless router.

    Connect your computer to the wireless router. Although you can access the router wirelessly, it is better to use an Ethernet cable to directly connect to your router so that you can securely adjust router settings. Plug the Ethernet cable into the appropriate Ethernet jack on your computer. Plug the other end of the cable into any one of the open Ethernet ports on the back of your wireless router.

    2. Open a Web browser. In the URL address field, enter the IP address for your wireless router. This information should be contained in your router’s manual. If you cannot find it, enter “198.168.1.1” as the address. This is usually the default IP address for most routers.


    3. Enter the username and password for your router. This should also be supplied in the router’s manual. If you don’t have this information, go to the RouterPasswords website and find the brand and model of your router. This site lists the default login information for most wireless routers.

    4. You should now be able to see your wireless router settings. You can configure your network ports, as well as SSID (wireless network name) and passwords.

    950XL Wifi / Router Problem

    Since I have purchased my 950XL the wifi connection in my router shuts down, I still have wired connection but all devices connected via wifi lose their connection to router. Apparently others have the same issue as well Windows Phones

    Any suggestions is highly appreciated.

    UPDATE:

    • I have had 15 conversations on Twitter with @LumiaHelp & so far they have suggested general instructions. I will report back if they truly provide a solution.
    • This is the model of the modem that gets affected DOCSIS 3.0 Cable Modem | CDA3 | Hitron Americas

    UPDATE FEB 6:

    • Lumia Help & Microsoft's provided solutions via Twitter (@LumiaHelp) has been useless.
    • If anyone has this issue, please kindly complain on Twitter as more voices are needed.
    • They are suggesting this is an isolated issue & I keep sending the list of people whom everyday come up with this problem.
    • I need help to raise awareness otherwise we won't be noticed.
    • My ID on twitter is @LotfiCo if you want to include me in your message.

    Update June 6:

    • After months of back and forth with Lumia & Microsoft support, the phone works with certain routers and as evidenced by latest replies, it still doesn't work with some select other routers.
    • This effort has been useless in a sense that proper attention has not been given to this issue.
    • Is having a wifi connection too much too ask on a "smart phone"?
    • The support response has been ridiculous at best.

    Connecting to non-router wifi

    When will the wifi connectivity problems be solved?


    Hi Wabbles and welcome to Tenforums.

    I've got 4 systems connecting via wireless; all adapters are different makes; all have zero issues, and two of them are old (wireless-G only). Most every issue I have seen with wireless connections has been driver-related. (Or, impending router failure.) I would suggest identifying your adapter model/make, and searching for different drivers that you can try out. And, sometimes an older driver works better than a newer one (just had this issue on a system I was working on yesterday). Also, verify you have these same connection issues when connecting to different routers, just to rule that out.
