My Android says 'Avoided Poor Internet Connection'

Android phones and tablets will attempt to test the Internet connection when connecting to your Connectify Hotspot. Sometimes they may incorrectly detect a poor Internet connection when that is perfectly fine. 

You can disable this feature in Android:

  1. On your Android device, go to Advanced WiFi settings. 
  2. Look for a setting that allows the Android device to automatically switch away from a wireless network if it thinks the network is bad. There are many different names for that option on different versions of Android. So try looking for something along the lines of:
  • Avoid Poor Connections
  • Auto Network Switch
  • Smart Network Switch
  1. Once you find that option, turn it OFF.
