    Hi

    I have read various issues users are having since upgrading to Kitkat but I yet to see anyone with the issue I have . Before I upgraded (which in actual fact was done by mistake due to the nag screen coming up when I was tapping on another app at the same time :( ) any Wifi router that was saved, would auto connect when selected to switch WiFi on.

    Now when I switch Wifi on it lists all available Wifi connections and instead of connecting to the saved entry, I have to select it and then choose connect.

    Has anyone else experienced this issue ?

    Thanks

    Mine has always done this with the exception of my home network. Anytime I am outside of the house, I always have to select the network that I wanted to use when there are open connections.

    The issue I developed this morning after doing the update was that my wi-fi would not connect at all (would not even turn on). I found a fix for it - simply take out the battery and re-install - it fixed the problem and now it's working fine.

    For what it's worth.

    The fix for your issues is in the settings. I only ran across it once after I did the update my self. Basically it's a setting that let's you choose to always prompt you to connect or auto connects. You can find it somewheres in the wifi settings.
