Hey, my girlfriend has an iPhone and she can see the free wifi at Heathrow Airport, but my Jolla can't. I rebooted the phone and the SSID showed up for a few seconds, then vanished again. Its name is "_Heathrow Wi-Fi". Is it because of the underscore character?

I've also had issues at home. I have 2 wi-fi networks (long house) and when I connect to one of them, it works for a few minutes then signal drops to zero, and I have to turn wifi off/on to get access again.

I love my phone, please help me with this :/

I have the same 'at home' issue, two APs with the same name. occasionally though i need to reboot rather than just toggle wifi off/on as the cell data connection also refuses to work.

That sucks! Is there a bug report on this?

It should not be about the underscore-character. However without getting the logs I can't tell what's going on..

Please upgrade to u10 ( which will be available for all on today and re-test. :)

Ask the company to pay you for a trip to london. For testing purposes obviously :P

I've updated! When I go back to London I'll try it!

Sadly, didn't return through Heathrow, so I'll have to test this some other time :/ flying out again next month, will give it a shot
