Lumia 950 - No networking working

Post by yiays » Fri Aug 16, 2019 11:32 pm

Has anyone managed to get networking working on their nonXL 950s? I know wifi isn't functional yet, but I've tried both Bluetooth tethering from Windows and Android and USB tethering, and all of them worked, but no packets make it through.

Bluetooth file transfer and USB data both work, so this seems to be a network configuration issue.

I've tried static IP assignment, but no luck. The network troubleshooter is useless, unsuprisingly.

Hey. I recommended redeploying Windows 10 ARM64 because with the 1909 driver pack WLAN does actually work.

Hi,
Is a full deployment the only way to get the drivers installed? What is with the old way to install using inf files?

I verified that you can replace the Wifi driver using device manager just fine. But there are some drivers like the GPU driver that cannot be updated this way (they usually get updated in Windows 10 Mobile using those spinning gears). Please look at this Github issue for further details:

And where did you get the driver from? Are they somewhere on GitHub?

https://github.com/WOA-Project/MSM8994- ... ivers/WLAN

In this folder you can find the Wifi driver that works for Lumia 950 (apparently also for the XL version?): qcwlan8994.inf /.sys /.cat . In device manager if your Wifi driver does not start (this yellow warning triangle) then you should right click, go to Properties, uninstall that driver (delete all the driver files too because they conflict) and then right click install the new driver you just downloaded.

Anyway, redeployment is absolutely recommended. You should back up your private data on an external HDD and then do it. But yea, if you wanna backup to NAS then you gotta get that WLAN driver (luckily driver update does work for that one).
