Sometimes on cheap routers, you need to reset the router before it accepts the new device.
Sometimes that also happens because devices have a long lease period of DHCP assigned IP address, and you have high frequency of changes.
Try to turn the wifi off and on in the phone settings as well, or choose manual settings.
I remember that one of the updates had wifi issues, and the next one resolved them, but my memory today is very lousy, can't remember which it was.
Please install 1.18.40 complete firmware, and let me know if it still does not work.
PS: does it work with any other wifi? Like if you have another phone that can share internet connection via Wifi - can you connect to that? So does it work with some but not others, or it works with none?
If with none, there could be hardware fault or software fault.
Hardware can't do anything. Software - load full last version of firmware and do a factory reset to wipe everything that could be blocking it.

And probably end up with something totally different :D
AnonD-314258, 01 Oct 2014Hello tomazz i regularly hear ur opinions and i find them useful a lot but i just want to know... moreThat depends on the country. In some countries they are readily available, but the shipments are generally once per 2-3 weeks to each of the countries.
Since the phone is quite popular, it is in short supply in some countries.
But as I assume you are in India, you would need to ask that from Flipkart or Asus India.

Tap on it, and make sure to select MTP (this should work for Windows 7 and 8).
Now on your computer, use a different USB port than you did before, and if you have one (like from a portable USB 2 hard disk) also a different cable.
If this still does not work, download the Intel driver from phone support and downloads site. I have a mirror here:
Install this driver, then try to connect the phone again.
If you are using a Mac or Linux, get "Android File Transfer" app (freeware).
