    wifi question

    I have wifi connection at my home, and I have wifi connection at work. Is there a way that when I get to work my wifi connection becomes active on my S2, and when I get home it automatically switches to my home connection, or do I have to manually turn it on? Thank you my friends !!

    It doesn't do it automatically? Once you have them set up it should pick between your saved profiles I think.

    Yes, you should have the option to save networks and automatically connect to them under "Set Up WiFi" in Manage Connections... I was actually looking at it earlier today when I was looking at the S2.

    Unfortunately, I don't have one in hand to get the exact path for you. G'luck.

    I got home tonight and my saved "sites" was still opted for work...I had to change it to home. Now I might not have it set up right. Hoping the Mighty Minds here have an answer.

    Prioritize Wi-Fi Profiles? Should automatically choose based on signal?

    Thanks...I have those set up that way. There are 2 boxes to check on that page. First one says "Enable single profile scanning" the 2nd one says "prompt me for manual connection or login"...should either one of those be checked ? ...and Thank you very much.
