Troubleshooting Tips

  1. Ensure the SSID, password and the security type are correctly specified.
  2. If a device is already connected to a particular Wi-Fi connection, it cannot be re-configured using a Wi-Fi policy.
  3. If the distributed Wi-Fi configuration isn't working properly, try adding it manually on the Android device and ensure the correctness of the configuration. If you're able to add manually but not through MDM, contact MDM Support(MDM-support@manageengine.com)
  4. If you are able to connect manually but not able to connect when you push through MDM, kindly send the agent logs for further analysis
