Android 9 device does not save network



  • On an Android 9 tablet:

    1. Settings
    2. Use Wi-Fi
    3. Add network
    4. Enter an SSID, and select security None (the Wi-Fi does not require a password).
    5. Tap Save

    The network is not saved and the tablet does not connect to the Wi-Fi network. The Wi-Fi network works perfectly with half a dozen or so other devices.

    Could anyone shed some light on this?



  • Let me answer my question per the suggestion of Andrew instead of deleting it.

    The solution I found:

    1. Tap Advanced options when adding a network
    2. Select Yes for Hidden network

    I think I missed the saved network when I posted my question. The network was saved on this tablet but it was on a separate list at the bottom: enter image description here
