This is not possible unless you restrict access to the device's Wifi itself, which is not possible on current most popular OS's(not without unofficial modification atleast) Android, iOS and Windows Phone. There are apps that can control accessibility of porn websites(Apple has its own) on the device itself(thus it will deny requests to porn websites from ...

I have the same exact issue. Literally same exact issue. I got mine to work for a little while after setting my WiFi to broadcast B&G only. I really hope someone finds out how to fix this issue soon. Btw I'm running XDAbbeb's ROM and have tried 3 or 4 others. Edit: People on the G3 reddit are reporting this issue as well. One user said that replacing ...

This appears to be a problem with app interference. I have uninstalled a bunch of apps on my phones and they now auto-connect without issue. I wish I knew which app or apps was the culprit. As I install back some apps that I need maybe I will find out. If I do I will update this answer.

I have the same problem. Recently started though after my phone did a software update. I've had it for almost a year and it used to Autoconnect no problem. It's definitely not the Wifi because it happens everywhere work, home, or any connection.

On Android 4.4, there is an option "Avoid poor connections" under Settings->Wi-Fi->Advanced(perhaps under the menu). You want to set this option on. This option is not present in Android 6. I'm not sure whether it's present in Android 5.1.

Try turning off any VPN connections in your settings. If you're using opera Max for example. I did this and WiFi connection was back to normal.

Your initial question seems a bit vague, so I'm goign to assume that you're asking why when wifi is turned on, cellular data goes off. If this is not the question you are asking, please ignore my answer. That is how android is designed to handle data. When Wi-fi is on, Mobile Data does not get used. If you want to keep mobile data active even while wifi ...

If you have the $60 dollar plan with metro your wasting your time with Pda. If your phone can hot spot use. Metro will not charge you anymore for this at the higher price. I did it. You'll get messages that say otherwise.....ignore them...there's a disclosure that now states they no longer charge for Hotspot on the 60 dollars plan.

It is pretty simple. For this you need an app that shows signal of different router ( or channels). I recommend you this app which is free on play store. I have tried this app in my hostel. You can see every detail of every router near by you even of same SSID. There you can choose which router to connect.

Drag the notification bar and long press the wifi icon. Now you can see the list of available wifi. Choose which one you need to connect and then type the password(if exists)

I use an app called wifi connection manager. Do you have physical access to the router? If so, you could goto "advanced" in the wifi menu then use WPS to connect to the router by pressing the WPS button on the router.

You can try opera max. It is VPN service that having app management features. There you can manage which app to allow network connections. And then only allowed apps would be able to access network bandwidth.

The only reason I know why an OS would use a lot of data connection is downloading upgrades. Did your phone install (a) lot of system updates recently? Are you using stock firmware or did you install a custom OS like CynogenMod, possibly even a nightly build that updates every night? For Chrome data usage there may be a lot of reasons - it usually ...

Do you have any app that auto connects wifi, like tasker or Samsung's new application called 'Good Lock'? Because Good Lock creates routines and by default if it gets in some predefined location than it starts wifi and some other services. (sorry, I don't know if this can be termed as answer or not. But my reputation is low so I cannot comment and I just ...
