I am facing problem connecting to any wifi router with my 6 months old lumia. Although lumia rolled out a ciritcal update but i am not able to update even with 3g data plan. It says it needs the wifi to download the update. :(

Is there is a way to get the update offline or with 3g data ?


If you don't mind resetting your phone you could reinstall your phone using the Windows Devices Recovery Tool - I'm not sure if this will install the latest build though. But it might fix your Wifi. Perhaps doing a hard reset beforehand might solve your connection issues as well.

  • It was working fine initially then my glass was broken and i formatted the phone before sending it to microsoft care. Now i am not able to download the critical update over wifi. i believe this critical update will fix this problem . Dec 13 '15 at 17:47

    Maybe there's a newer version available through the Recovery Tool than what you have installed last time - have you checked?

  • thanks Thomas, but it's too much to do so I went to the Microsoft Seller, they told me to hard reset. Dec 29 '15 at 9:20
