Hey sailors,

i have saved 5 wlan connections. when i try to save a 6th one, i got an error message. Is there a limit for WLAN connections?

Well in my opinion there should be no limit for wlan connections.

I currently have 18 WLAN connections saved, having some added in each of the 4 OS versions. So, you should definitely be able to have more than 5 WLANs.

The problem might be from the type of wlan you are trying to add. In previous versions, there were some known issues with wlan connections and some of them might still be unresolved.

Do you have any other wlan accessible to test if you can connect to that one instead? This way you'll be able to narrow the problem to the wlan itself.

You can also provide some more details about the error message you see and about the wlan type/configuration.

Okay, 18 WLAN connections is a challenge. First, I rebooted, but the result was the same.

I wanted to post a screenshot with the error message, but my jolla is set to german. I changed language to english an the phone rebootet again.

I opened the WLAN to replicate the error, but to my surprise I was able to save the WLAN connection. I changed back to german and was able to save WLAN connections, too..

WLAN needs definitley a workaround.
