wifi no internet access on windows phone 8.1

    Question

  • Hello,

    I am trying to connect my Lumia 925 ( OS version: 8.10.12393.890) to Laptop internet (Win 7 64 bit machine) through wifi.

    It is failing with error :

    "

    CAn't Connect

    The WiFi network VirtualRouter didn't respond. Try again later.

    "

    I have created a virtual router using cmd:

    netsh wlan set hostednetwork mode=allow ssid=VirtualRouter key=password.

    When i check status using cmd: netsh wlan show hostednetwork, i get following output:

    Hosted network settings
    -----------------------
        Mode                   : Allowed
        SSID name              : "VirtualRouter"
        Max number of clients  : 1
        Authentication         : WPA2-Personal
        Cipher                 : CCMP

    Hosted network status
    ---------------------
        Status                 : Started
        BSSID                  : 2e:0f:6e:f4:5a:2c
        Radio type             : 802.11n
        Channel                : 11
        Number of clients      : 0

    which is expected as I have not connected through phone yet.

    Immediately after I try to connect through my phone i get following output for the above cmd:

    C:\Windows\system32>netsh wlan show hostednetwork

    Hosted network settings
    -----------------------
        Mode                   : Allowed
        SSID name              : "VirtualRouter"
        Max number of clients  : 1
        Authentication         : WPA2-Personal
        Cipher                 : CCMP

    Hosted network status
    ---------------------
        Status                 : Started
        BSSID                  : 2e:0f:6e:f4:5a:2c
        Radio type             : 802.11n
        Channel                : 11
        Number of clients      : 1
            40:7a:80:8b:91:07        Authenticated

    But then I get connectivity error shown in the above image and once again output for cmd netsh wlan show hostednetwork is :

    C:\Windows\system32>netsh wlan show hostednetwork

    Hosted network settings
    -----------------------
        Mode                   : Allowed
        SSID name              : "VirtualRouter"
        Max number of clients  : 1
        Authentication         : WPA2-Personal
        Cipher                 : CCMP

    Hosted network status
    ---------------------
        Status                 : Started
        BSSID                  : 2e:0f:6e:f4:5a:2c
        Radio type             : 802.11n
        Channel                : 11
        Number of clients      : 0

    Can you please let me know solution to use wifi through Lumia 925?

    Another thread had same issue and the solution provided was to do a "reset". I do not wish to do that.

    Is there any way to make this wifi work? Wifi used to work before. It has stopped working suddenly (not sure if it was after upgrading to 8.1)

    Thanks in advance!
