I have eduroam configured for my Jolla, and when I'm traveling with a bus through the university campus or the hospital campus Jolla is continuously switching between 2G/3G mobile data and WLAN. It is quite annoying. I get continuous stream of error messages, queries what connection method to use (mobile data or WLAN), and the web browser either takes forever to load pages or gives errors.

  1. There should be some delay flip-floping between the connection methods
  2. The delay for switching should be temporarily increased if there are connection problems, and/or
  3. There should be temporary penalty for connection method that is causing lots of problems
  4. If user is queried for the connection method, Jolla should stick to it for some time before starting automatically to switch connection method again

Seen with Sailfish (Tahkalampi).

Yes, I also see this behaviour, and it is indeed very inconvenient. The only workaround I found is to switch wlan off,

as I commented here https://together.jolla.com/question/57852/wlan-networks-with-same-names/ can't the jolla switch to wifi only when the connection is established and working? right now it seems that as soon as a known wifi is visible the change is done. can't the wifi be "checked" in background and switched to only if connecting works?
