I’m a longtime Rw customer who just changed from a Moto X 1g to a Nexus 6p; I’ve done all of the updates and the phone is running Android 7.0
My Moto X with RW was over-hyper trying to alert me to possible nearby wifi (frequently trying to steer me onto cable TV wifi of which I was not a customer).
But my 6p seems too passive in not offering an easy alert to/ connection steps to tie into nearby wifi. The only way I seem to be able to detect whether I am in a location with open wifi is by going into the phone’s general settings, and then, within settings, go into wifi- which is way too indirect and fiddly compared to something that will let me know that open networks are available and asking me if I want to connect
I opened a ticket 1:1 with RW directly over my 6p to ask about this, and was told:
"To enable network notifications, go into your Republic Wireless app and choose WiFi settings.
A few options down there will be a network notifications, scan for networks option.
Turn this setting on to enable notification for available WiFi networks."
BUT- in my 6p’s RW app (ver 18.104.22.168) of the sub-areas of the RW app seem to have any portion that is “wifi settings” - so I am not seeing any way for me to do what RW suggested
How do I get the 6p to be a little bit more active and intuitive to identify and have an easy interface to connect to open wifi? Thanks in advance
