Preferred Solution: Wifi not working in windiws 8.1 update 1 developer preview no internet access error

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

I have already attempted to update twice but each time I do it simply restarts and takes me back to the Phone Update category in settings telling me an update is ready to be installed. I'm currently factory resetting to see if it makes any difference.

Answer:HTC 8x won't update to Developer Preview 8.1

That's probably your only option. My wife's L820 won't update to update 1. She keeps getting notified about the update but it generates an error. So I'm waiting for Cyan to be released for her phone and then I'll just hard reset at that point.

Cyan update was just rolling out for my country, Malaysia but till now my lumia 625 do not detect any latest update after i installed the black update usinh the DP. Sorry for my bad english, i am malaysian haha. Anyone can help?

Answer:is Preview of Developer, DP will prevent me from getting the official update?

From what I understand, they (MS) ran into an issue where people upgrading from DP to Lumia Cyan that are using bitlocker are having issues. MS has temporarily paused the release of the Cyan update until they have a fix for the issue. So, if you are in an area where the cyan update for your phone has been released, it may no longer be available until a fix is made. The article mentions rolling your phone back to WP8 before updating to Cyan, BUT I would recommend just waiting until a fix is available so you don?t loose data by reverting to back to an earlier OS.Microsoft: Windows Phone 8.1 Preview for Developer users should return to normal software before Lumia Cyan | Windows Phone Central

You'll need to downgrade to Windows Phone 8 using the Nokia Software Recovery Tool. Then you'll see that Cyan is available, and you'll be able to update.

the one that bothers me the most is that i cannot get the speech to work. Normally when u hold the "search" key it will bring up a voice commands function (not cortana) seeing that i reside in Belgium Cortana is not yet available to me, so i used the regular voice commands on my old Lumia 820 + Dev.Prev.
This has stopped working after updating to the Preview :( Only the short press that lets u type work's not the long press for voice commands
Any suggestions?

Use Nokia Software Updater / Nokia Software Recovery Tool (installed to a PC / laptop - connected to phone via charging cable) to flash the appropriate software for your device.
Some people have had issues with either of these programs, there are threads all over these forums with possible remedies. I had NO issues falling back (from Dev Preview 8.1 to Official 8.0) to take Lumia CYAN upgrade ... so, I can't speak to these issues. Other than :make sure you use the cable supplied with the phone, just because the cable charges the phone does NOT mean it'll carry DATAYou may have to try different USB ports on your laptop / PC - there seems to be an issue with USB 3.0 driversInstall the latest version of the selected tool (NSU or NSRT) (uninstall any existing programs).one of those works better with a dead phone, not sure which, you'll have to experimentPATIENCE helps - this process takes some time, with scary pauses in the process ...SEARCH these forums (or XDA Devs) if you encounter issues - there are multiple threads addressing thisWhen / IF you finally get the phone flashed - do NOT sign in, HARD RESET your phone, again ... then sign in to access any backup available.

Dear forum readers,

I have a problem when trying to install:

Windows 8 Developer Preview with developer tools English, 64-bit (x64)

When using the DVD tool from Microsoft as explained in one of the tutorials in this forum,
I receive the following error message:

The disc does not have sufficient free space.

I use a 4.7GB DVD disc, and the size of the Windows 8 Developer Preview with tools English, 64-bit (x64) iso file
size is: 4.83 GB.

Of-course this is the source of my problem, and i need a way to fix it.

What i am doing currently, is downloading the Windows 8 Developer Preview without tools.

I have read some solutions, but they did not offer what i am looking for.

I need a way to install the complete version with developer tools, including:

64-bit Windows 8 Developer Preview
Windows SDK for Metro style apps

I only have a normal DVD drive, no USB stick of the required size, but I have a second hard-disk with sufficient space.
AND I have an external USB hard-disk with sufficient space.

Any help appreciated.

For now I've made two users, Windunce and Metro.
I've 'disabled?' the MetroUI for user Windunce and left MetroUI as installed for the user Metro.

I simply unpinned all the apps from the Start Screen except 'Desktop' and enabled Quick Launch on a

User Windunce will logon for day to day productivity and User Metro will logon to enter the brave new world.

The bad news, it doesn't run :(

When I updated to the release preview, Metro stopped working on my computer. The tiles said Microsoft.ZuneMusic/AppexNews and when I clicked them they did not open. If I tried to open the store, it would open the splash screen and then crash. So then I tried to re-install windows 8 but it would not install and said it was experiencing problems with my hardware (which makes no sense since the Developer Preview worked perfectly fine). Now whenever I start up my computer I have to choose between Windows 8 on disk 2, another option for Windows 8 on disk two, or Windows Setup. And metro still does not work. What is happening?

The wifi adapter is the Atheros AR5007 802-11b/g WiFi Adapter. Which may be outdated?

I can access Mozilla using the ethernet cable, but if I try to use IE it has a connection issue. Stating:"Windows cannot find host name "internet explorer" using DNS." The domain server may be down. Windows found a problem that cannot be repaired automatically."
One suggestion was to use a USB adapter assuming the Atheros AR5007 802-11b/g WiFi Adapter is out of date or can't be updated? What do I know?!?

I just received back my Lumia 820 after an USB connector replacement (it was jammed and couldn't charge the phone).
Ever since then I have no internet on the phone. It shows as if it would connect to the Wireless network, but I have no Internet connection on the phone itself.
I get an IP like 169.254.x.x and a mask with
...which would indicate an APIPA/ DHCP issue according to my limited IT knowledge.
Problem is that there are 3 other devices (a laptop, a PC and my girlfriend's Lumia 640) connected to the same Wireless Router and they all work just fine, while my L820 has no internet connection.
I've tried with my other network at my old flat, got the same issue (IP and mask-wise).
The network is not limited by MAC Addresses as those devices connected just automatically and they all work fine. And the number of devices connected are also not limited as I've tried disconnecting a device while connecting with my phone - same result.
Is it possible then that it is a hardware issue and the guys fixing my phone messed something up with the WiFi? What can I do to solve this?
Thanks in advance for your input!

Hello, I was wondering if I upgraded my WP8 device (HTC 8X), via the Preview for Developers to 8.1 (not 8.1.1), would I be getting the final version of 8.1? I don't care about carrier or OEM specific firmware or customization. I just want to know if it is the final, RTM build, or an earlier preview build.

Answer:RTM for Developer Preview?

Hey man.
If you download Windows Phone 8.1 via Preview you will get the latest version, always.
Microsoft generally keeps the preview ahead of the general user, so we get an update and after a while that update is released to the final user.
So your answer is yes.
BUT, keep in mind... Sometimes our updates are buggy because they are, in general, betas.

Mozilla Developer Preview Now Available

A posting on the Mozilla Developer blog states that a developer preview of the Gecko 1.9.3 platform is now available for download.

The main feature of this release is out-of-process plugins: on Windows and Linux, plugins such as Flash and Silverlight run in a separate process from the browser. If a plugin crashes it will not crash the browser, and unresponsive plugins are automatically restarted. (Note that we are working on this for Macs as well, but is not part of this preview release.) We are making this preview release available so that it can get wider testing and generate feedback.

I know November isn't far away, but I'd really like to get a taste of all the new features, and I'm pretty excited for Cortana. So I wanted to know if anyone has the preview running on their 8XT, and if so, are you having any problems with your phone after the update? Should I wait for the actual update or try out the preview?

Answer:Does anyone actually have the developer preview running on the 8xt??

Hi, I need to know if someone with Athlon XP or Sempron CPU has also problems with Windows Developer Preview. Every time I run Services or EventViewer...etc the application crashes with the culprit being d3d10warp.dll.
I tested it in 3 PCs with different video cards and now I suspect is the CPU. (which lacks SSE2 instructions)

Answer:Windows Developer Preview on old PC

I dont think it's the CPU, at least there's no reference to SSE2 instructions in the official requirements.

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

I have taken a month ago Lumia cyan on my Lumia phone. I heard a rumor about update 2 coming 8th October and I wondered if it is wise to enroll to the developer preview program to get update 1 with folders which I like a lot? Had anyone heard when update 1 is coming to normal users? What are the rules for enrolling in the developer preview program and will I lose guaranty or something?

I want to remove the Developer Preview from my 8XT. I want to reset my phone so that I can install the latest 8.1 update and firmware from Sprint. My wife's non-DP 8XT received the new 8.1 update and I noticed that the HTC firmware was also updated. Im sick and tired of the WiFi issues and the constant rebooting. What is the difference between the Sprint 8.1 update and the Developer Preview 8.1.1 update? What will I miss if I remove the DP version?

Answer:How do I remove the Developer Preview from my 8XT?

Try turning Preview for Developers off and then checking for the update.
That may get you the latest Sprint 8xt Firmware.
Don't return to P4D.
The difference is optimized Firmware made to run on your device. From the sound of it you will miss Live Folders, Cell Data Toggle, etc. Compare with your wife's "official" phone. I searched around and did not find a ready packaged answer on how to flash official firmware to your device. Try searching the 8XT forum here and at XDA for more specific answers and how to instructions if the workaround I posted does not get you back to official.

Dont know if it's just me or what but recently most of my apps have been really sluggish lately, what i mean by that is the when i open an app like xbox music or video it gives me the resuming thing for about 5 to 10 seconds and then it just goes out of the app. I then have to repeat this for probably 5 times before the app actually begins.
Even other downloaded apps like modernmusic, accuweather and even the stock cellular does this.

Hi guys! I'm experimenting with Windows 8 Developer Preview and I'm having a tough time installing it. It finishes copying the files, then reboots, then just hangs on "Getting devices ready 86%." It wouldn't go past that.

Tried numerous times, different HD partitions, different drives on different SATA ports, same result. Sometimes it hangs at 87%, 82%, etc...

This is on an Asus P8Z68 Deluxe/Gen3 mobo with a 2600K.

Just wonder if anyone is using it and has any idea why it's doing that.

Microsoft every day make new update like denim and I want to know is that update will roll for non developer Lumia phones, and Windows phone 10 is he will roll out Windows phone 8.1 users.

Answer:Should I to switch to preview developer

The Preview for Developers does get you fast tracked for updates, but they are Beta and may have bugs that need to be worked out. Also they lack firmware for your individual hardware and are not as efficient. Many reported problems include battery drain, malfunctions with basic apps like camera and other difficulties like WiFi not connecting...
Many love the P4D and I enjoyed it when I was on the program. Then I got a new phone I was taking on a long vacation overseas and I ran the phone without P4D so I was assured of stability while away from home...
If you are a risk taker, get the P4D going. IMHO, the benefits outweigh the risks. If you want tried and true, don't do it.
The updates that Preview users are getting WILL come to your device. All Lumias are getting Windows 10. P4D is not required to get updates. No one on P4D is getting firmware such as Cyan or Denim through the program. Cyan, Denim and other Lumia firmware is a separate update.

Microsoft rolled out an update recently that changed the interface of the Internet Explorer Developer Tools significantly.

Most modern browsers ship with a set of developer tools included. These tools can be used for a variety of purposes, from checking what gets loaded when you connect to a website to a website's source code and JavaScript that gets executed.

The keyboard shortcut F12 toggles the Developer Tools interface usually in most browsers. Up until recently, Microsoft used a different layout than Mozilla and Google.

Instead of displaying a horizontal toolbar listing the tools provided, it displayed them vertically on the left side of the screen. While that saved horizontal space, it had the effect that all tools were displayed as icons which made it difficult for some to distinguish between them.

The company published an updated for its Internet Explorer 11 browser last Tuesday on Patch Day which changed the Developer Tools interface.

When you open the Developer Tools in Internet Explorer after the update you will notice that the vertical toolbar is gone replaced by a horizontal toolbar. The icons are gone too for the most part replaced by the name's of the tools which improves identification significantly.

Another effect of the change is that you don't have to scroll vertically anymore to access one of the tools that is not displayed on the toolbar due to lack of visible space. The only option to avoid this back then was to increase the vertic... Read more

Hey guys I know its pretty [H]ard but I'm using Windows 8 Developer Preview 64-bit as my main operating system. I built a new Desktop and decided on saving a few bucks from buying another Win 7 OS license so I made a bootable Win 8 DVD. Since I don't really care to much about the metro UI, I use Metro UI Tweaker and now it looks and feels just like Win 7. The only real issue I had so far is that my chipset driver would not install properly and if I force install it my PC would crash. Other than that I've been gaming, blu-ray watching, video editing, web surfing and music listening with no issues . Anyone else in the same boat or am I just the minority .

Answer:Anyone else using Windows 8 Developer Preview as their main OS?

For my CR-48, yes. For everything else? No. So far, it's been a dev platform and a new toy I have to get used to. Nothing more, so far.

Dear forum readers,

I tried to install Windows 8 Developer Preview.

After some initial problems, i succeeded in installing Windows 8 (dual boot ) on my laptop.

However, for some reason my printer was installed, but not working.

Printer: Canon LBP6000, it appeared in the control panel, but no properties of the printer.

Tried to download 64-bit drivers from Canon for Windows 7.
Installed the driver, rebooted and try to print.

Error message: something like connection problems. Booted in Windows 7, no problems with printing.

Rebooted in Windows 8,
Got an error message from Explorer.exe and the laptop shuts down.
Windows 8 started
try to fix the printer problems, still not managed to get the printer working.

Then i tried to log of and shut down, Windows 8 did not want to log of, so i tried <CTRL><ALT><DEL>
and got finally to the option to shut down.

Got an error message from Explorer.exe and the laptop shuts down.

Since Windows 8 is not stable on my system, especially not able to shut down, or log of normally,

I want to get rid of Windows 8 Developer Release, but i do not like to loose Windows 7.

It is a dual-boot system.

Hope someone can explain to me how to safely remove Windows 8 Developer Preview. And keep Windows 7, without the Windows 8 Developer Preview boot loader.

I'm running the Windows Developer Preview 64 bit w/o developer's tools on my computer. I installed it through an iso mounted to a USB flash drive. Now, months later, it says I need to insert the disk to repair Windows. (It froze and when I restarted it said this). I can only download the consumer preview now, rendering me unable to fix it. I want to update to the Consumer Preview on my computer for the purpose of the iso being "corrupt" (missing different files each time) no matter how many times I try to redownload and remount it. If anyone knows of somewhere I can download it or has it saved somewhere and is willing to upload it somewhere, I would greatly appreciate it.

Answer:Windows Developer Preview 64 bit w/o tools iso?


Easiest choices of many:

1) Try booting to safe mode then open an elevated command prompt and run this command to fix it:

sfc /scannow

2) Just custom install the Consumer Preview.

3) If you still have the USB intact, use that to repair.


There might be something wrong with your hard drive, because Windows files do not really become corrupted otherwise, causing freezes. (Maybe 3rd party software over-writting but still probably would not freeze.)

Once you have any operating system up and running, run this command from an elevated prompt:

chkdsk /r

Did you mean that your friend installed the Preview for Developers App? Installing that app does not automatically enable your phone to receive preview updates... you need to "Enable" it first in the app itself.
You should find the "Preview for Developers" App in the App List. In it, just uncheck "Enable Preview for Developers" (if it is checked). In most cases, you won't need to restart your phone after that. You don't need to uninstall the app afterwards, as long as this is "unchecked" your phone will not receive preview updates.

Answer:Windows 8 Developer Preview on Linux Tablet

No. It does not meet the system requirements. Below is the requirements for each. I have highlighted the aspect that your Tablet doesnt meet. While you can try to force the install of Windows with only 512MB of RAM, I would not suggest it as it would not do you any good. It will make the system slow.

System Requirements
Windows 8 Release Preview works great on the same hardware that powers Windows 7:

Processor: 1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster
RAM: 1 gigabyte (GB) (32-bit) or 2 GB (64-bit)
Hard disk space: 16 GB (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
Graphics card: Microsoft DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM driver

Windows 7 system requirements
If you want to run Windows 7 on your PC, here's what it takes:

1 gigahertz (GHz) or faster 32-bit (x86) or 64-bit (x64) processor
1 gigabyte (GB) RAM (32-bit) or 2 GB RAM (64-bit)
16 GB available hard disk space (32-bit) or 20 GB (64-bit)
DirectX 9 graphics device with WDDM 1.0 or higher driver

Windows Vista system requirements

On Fitbit's website it says it doesn't. I have the Windows 8.1 update one preview on my AT&T Lumia 1520. It does have cyan. I'm just curious if anyone else has a fitbit that works with 8.1 Update 1 preview. I'm thinking of getting a charge tomorrow for Black Friday.
Happy Thanksgiving! Thanks for the help!

If so, I might "play" with it...if not I'll wait for the Beta.Think I got my answer: >>>The Win8 build they're releasing (the dev preview build) includes the Win8 OS, samples, SDKs, and Visual Studio. You do all of your dev and testing on that machine, either physical (if you install it on a real machine) or virtual (if you install it into a VM). Obviously to do touch testing and such you'd need a touch-capable machine, but the rest could probably be done either in a physical or virtual machine.<<<ETA: Good thread re this release going on here Moved topic from General Chat to the more appropriate forum. ~ Animal

I am kind of an impatient dude. But what also triggers my impatience is when a new update is released for the DP. So I am considering to go back to DP... for the third time.
But before I do that, I remembered the great community here who gave so many responses to my last post (seriously, thank you!) and seeking advice from experts here, I have a question: Should I switch to Developer's Preview from Lumia Cyan?
Here are my supporting questions:
1. Do I lose any stability by doing so?
2. Is the DP essentially a Nexus equivalent of Windows Phone?
3. Any other risks I should know of?
Thank you, in advance, for taking your time to read this question!

Answer:Should I switch to Developer's Preview from Lumia Cyan?

1. Depends. If your phone is pretty stable to begin with it should be fine. If not then hard reset
2. No DP is not a Nexus equivalent. There is no firmware with DP which is where some of the instability can come from
3. Other than the possibility of having to hard reset which means you may lose data

Windows 8 Dev Preview.

2500k, z68 mobo, 8gb ram, 500gb HDD.

So every time I start this machine it goes to an all black screen with white letters that says developer preview or something like that. And it just sits there. If I then press the restart button it loads fine bringing me to the login screen. So every time i start the computer I must go through this sequence. Anyone have any idea what is causing it or how to fix it? If I shut it down it happens again.

Answer:Stuck at black developer preview screen

Check that EFI/BIOS are updated?
