Connect to a Wi-Fi network

An activated WLAN is not sufficient to automatically access network devices or the Internet. A WLAN connection is usually established to a router, but can also be established to another smartphone or WLAN hotspot. However, the path to a successful connection always works the same on the LG device.

Restrict networks

WLAN networks have the problem that the data consumption of the LG device increases very quickly. This is because the device assumes that a WLAN connection does not incur any direct costs. At first glance, this is correct, but not in the case of chargeable WLAN packages such as those available in hotels, cruise ships or airports. A WLAN package with a volume of a few MB can quickly be used up in a few hours.

To prevent this from happening, the LG device has a "Restrict networks" function. If this is activated, the WLAN connection is equated with the mobile data connection. If, for example, the setting "Download only via WLAN" is activated in an app like Spotify, nothing happens due to the network restriction.
