So that's the confusion.Yes, so did I. If the mobile network (to the car) coverage is poor and the remote pre-heating control is therefore problematic, I'd hoped that the WiFi link would improve it, but if isn't connected then it can't.
Well looks like taking it back was a waste of time. After the first day I was phoned by the dealer to say they weren't replacing the unit as a Nissan technician wanted to take a look the following day. Apparently the technician did some "magic" which didn't require the unit to be replaced and now "everything would be working" ... except it isn't. As far as I can tell they only thing they succeeded in doing was setting my time zone 12 hours ahead, so the car charged in the middle of the day instead of the middle of the night! Still can't connect to WiFi. Tried with car fully on and just electrics on. And we still sometimes have the lag between pressing volume or radio power before anything happens. Big deal? Well it is very distracting from driving when you expect something to happen and it doesn't. I have basically given up on CarPlay as again what you expect it to do and what happens is rarely the same thing and is also distracting when driving. The car seems to actually "play" nicer when connected via bluetooth without Carplay and I prefer my map on the phone rather than looking down at the car screen. Siri works etc. Phone call to Nissan dealer again this morning :-(So I took back to dealer and they said there is a fault! So the system is being replaced on Wednesday (has taken a few weeks to get the part) - will be interesting to see if this resolves the WiFi Connection issues. Will let you know.
Indeed, it is actually described in my handbook.Yes, that's the one I THOUGHT it was, but it turns out it disables the volumetric alarm so pets and humans can be left in the car whilst the door is locked. So scrap that idea back to square one!
Could be true, perhaps the car uses the 3G/4G mobile base in preference to the WiFi, but in my area all the mobile signals are weak, so the home WiFi would be much faster and stronger for it. I wonder whether there is an internal algorithm that decides WiFi or Mobile as the WiFi connection is so random?Indeed, it is actually described in my handbook.
I have managed to connect to WiFi now, but only when the normal connection was down and the car symbol on the centre console had a line through it.
I suspect it is an either / or situation being connected through the inbuilt cellular, or WiFi but have yet or prove it.

My current status is that after taking the car (2019 LEaf) back to my dealer (early January) the Nissan "main techie" came and "tweaked" it (even the dealer was not allowed to see what they did), it was supposed to be all fixed ... but the problem of connecting to WiFi is still there. (Note: I have managed to get a connection once or twice, just not repeatable). The dealer saw the fault again when I took the car back and was not happy on my behalf and said they would now contact Nissan again to get the (£4,000 - really!) Infotainment unit replaced (as promised the first time) ... but Nissan apparently have (yet another) software patch coming "soon" (no date given) and they want to try that as they are worried that replacing the ("very expensive hardware") unit will not fix the issue! <sigh> I just hope this is not the same programming team responsible for Pro-Drive and the AEB!!We picked up a new Tekna e+ 62kW Leaf yesterday. I have the 'wifi issue'.
Earlier today I managed, somehow, to get the wifi to turn on. A whole list of SSIDs appeared, except our own. I set the iPhone up as a 'Personnel Hotspot' and that appeared immediately and disappeared when I turned it off. I had a look at the Broadband router setting; its set to select an automatic channel (set at 1) and the encryption when set to WPA. i changed that to WPA2; I thought I'd read somewhere that the Leaf didn't support WPA, but I don't know where I read that. When I got back to the car I couldn't start the wifi again.
Thanks in advance.
Accepted wisdom is that you should always use channels 1, 6 or 11: they are three non-overlapping channels that if everyone stuck to would give better overall performance. Run a scan and use the least-crowded one of those three at your location. See here, for example.I assume that you have clocked the earlier comments about the WiFi channel needing to be away from the top end? I found that I had to turn off auto channel select on the router and peg it to a fixed channel - 8 works for me.
Yes, I am seeing no SSID's at all, Its like the Wifi is not even enabled.I assume that you have clocked the earlier comments about the WiFi channel needing to be away from the top end? I found that I had to turn off auto channel select on the router and peg it to a fixed channel - 8 works for me.
I've had no problems connecting to wifi but some similar probs with the app. see :-WiFi and app just don’t work. If I try to update maps it says my subscription has expired. Dealer and Nissan can’t explain why, but is this part of the problem or another fault?
Would like an explanation of how I get a subscription but told by Nissan they are waiting for help above.
The dealers are baffled and the poor Nissan help line just add another email note to the ongoing complaint.
After months of trying to fix problems still no further forward. This is crazy!
6 and 11? I have 2 WAP's - the other WiFi signal spreads across 8 channels!Accepted wisdom is that you should always use channels 1, 6 or 11: they are three non-overlapping channels that if everyone stuck to would give better overall performance. Run a scan and use the least-crowded one of those three at your location. See here, for example.
Using channel 8 is both dumping and picking up noise from both 6 and 11.
If you're talking 2.4GHz, you should also only use 20MHz bandwidth, not 40MHz.6 and 11? I have 2 WAP's - the other WiFi signal spreads across 8 channels!
