I have encountered several times a situation in which Jolla is not able to detect any wifi networks. Disabling and re-enabling the Wifi does not seem to fix the problem. After a reboot Wifi works again as expected.

Edit 2018-11-21: Noted this behaviour with the Xpera XA2 (SFOS 3.0.0.8) yesterday. I had WiFi off for a day or two, when I re-enabled it I couldn't find any networks. The phone didn't even connect to the saved network and didn't find it. Restarting network with the Sailfish Utilities didn't work. After rebooting the phone I could connect to WiFi again.

agree, WiFi is pretty buggy, it drops preassigned/stored/activated networks, it in times misinterpretes unencrypted networks as being encrypted and frequently just does not find networks which perfectly send their beacons and which can be found easily with other devices

This is happening to me to, when I switch networks, it detects the network but doesn't want to connect to it. And after reboot it works fine. Also my stored networks are disappearing and reappearing.

Is this still happening after the latest update?

@gabriel yes - still happening and maybe worse (belly feeling, maybe I'm wrong and that impression is just due to the fact I'm using Jolla now as first phone ...)

I am on Xperia X with 3.2.0.12 (it happened a lot in 3.1 also).

When WIFI is enabled I just get this "Search window" that will continue until the screen goes off but it is doing nothing:

To make it work again I have to do "Airplane mode"/Reboot/enable Wifi...

It looks to me that this issue is more present if for example the VPN was started and you end up without battery. The next time I start the phone it is unable to connect to the known network.
