Hi 

I have an issue that is not at the point where I want to fix it.  

For ages I had my mobile phones connected to Bluetooth and wifi.

Then I got a Samsung S8 and it has been a pain in the neck.  Initially I did get everything connected. Then after some update to the phone, wifi stopped connecting.

Bluetooth still works and I use that but I still want to get the wifi side working.

 

OK so I enable wifi tethering. 

The car can see the phone/wifi ID

It trys to connect and eventually fails.

I have tried many times to delete the connection, rename the wifi ID, change the password for tethering on the phone and get the car to re-scan for devices.

Every time I can get the two talking but the car just won't connect.  ( I do think its the phone and not the car). 

 

Has anyone else had this issue and fixed it?

Assuming you just want your car to be able to use the Internet on the road. Just do what I do and enable Bluetooth tethering rather than WiFi tethering. 

That way everything (calls, music, Internet, etc) works through Bluetooth

You shouldn't connect Bluetooth and wifi at the same time, performance will be unpredictable, usually it's one or the other.  As jbi507 says, connect using Bluetooth, enable tethering on the phone and then everything will work fine.

Its annoying me why it suddenly stopped.  I had both connected with no problem with performance.

Has anyone else had the same issue?
