Fix WiFi Network Didn't Respond Error

On
After having used Windows Phone for over a year, I have stumbled on to errors very rarely. Recently I got into very odd error while trying to connect to the WiFi network at my home. It says "The WiFi network didn't respond. Try again later.". After struggling for over an hour, I finally found what caused the WiFi network error on my Windows Phone. Read more to see the fix to what caused WiFi network error on Windows Phone.
wifi network not responding


If you didn't know already, let me tell this. Not every WiFi network have the same set up. It depends on how the WiFi router is configured. If you look at the configuration settings of a WiFi router, you will find settings for radio channel, frequency, wireless security, access control etc and hence there may be a hundred reasons why your Windows Phone couldn't connect to the WiFi network.



However, if you are suddenly finding connection issue with a WiFi network that you usually connect to, it is more likely to be caused by some change in settings in your Windows Phone. And out of all the hundred reason, this could be the only reason why your Windows Phone suddenly don't connect to WiFi network.

Check if static ip is enabled.

To check static ip settings on Windows Phone, go to Settings > WiFi and scroll down to find static ip. If static ip is enabled, you phone will not connect to WiFi networks that doesn't require static ip configurations.

So disable the static ip and your Windows Phone will connect fine with most of the WiFi networks.

  3. No.....my static ip was already off. The wifi network connects and works fine for a day or two. Then i dont know why after some days it started giving that error 'wifi network couldnt respond' and again after some days it connects automatically and so on. The same network works just fine on my laptops and my friends mobile also.

  5. then may be it is some other issue related to wifi router settings. On a sidenote, my Lumia 525 refuses to connect to TP Link WiFi router if there is no internet access. Otherwise it works fine.

  10. Under Wifi settings there doesn't appear to be any option for enabling/disabling static ip. Scrolling down I find under "map nearby Wifi" "WiFi Sense" and "manage" no Static ip. Why is this?

  33. i recently purchased the new lumia 540 and it has a serious wifi problem. I also have one more lumia which is 532 and my both devices ( 532 and 540 ) are connected to same wifi router. Lumia 532 works excellent on the same wifi connection and speed is also excellent but the new lumia 540 often lost connection with the wifi router and when it connects, the browsing speed is extremely low. Facebook never refresh, instagram never refresh. I dont understand what the problem is and what to do now.

    Please help me as soon as possible. I'm really very worried.

  36. Hi, I am using Microsoft Lumia 640XL. I am able to connect to other wifi networks. but I got recently airtel 3G wifi dongle from office. My lumia is not getting connected to this airtel dongle. Getting same error message repeatedly as above mentioned by you. Static IP is off. Deleted all other known networks in mobile. router settings are fine. Checked for any mac IP filtering in router settings but it is also disabled. Can any one help me?
