As the number of devices that use wifi to communicate proliferate, is there a way to "force" the iFly to permanently ignore specific wifi local networks?  For example, I have a uAvionix skyBeacon ADS-B out UAT.  It communicates via wifi to an app on my smartphone for configuration and monitoring.  However, my iFly 740 will pick up the wifi network from the skyBeacon, but of course it doesn't communicate in any way with it, so it is obviously unnecessary  for it to have a wifi connection!

I believe I've seen this topic covered before, but couldn't find it.

Thanks,

John

John,

If I understand this correctly you want to ignore the previously established WIFI connections used by your iFly 740?

Yes, all but the one wifi connection for my ADS-B receiver. (And not try to re-connect with other devices on the next power cycle.)

John,

Go into your 'Network' settings where you find all of your WIFI listings..

From there, any/each network that has '(Pre)' next to it other than the ADS-B device, tap on it and touch 'Disconnect'.

This will make sure that the 740 doesn't try to jump from network to network.

On the next power cycle, will the 740 detect the unwanted networks again or at least only try to connect to the desired (ADS-B in) network?
