How To Set Wi-Fi Notifications, Disconnect Policy, And Advanced Options On Nexus 7

You can set Wi-Fi notifications, disconnect policy and other advanced options on your Google Nexus 7. Follow the simple steps below.

To work with advanced Wi-Fi settings:

  • Turn on Wi-Fi, if its not already on.
  • In the Wi-Fi settings screen, touch Menu icon and then Advanced.

These are the settings you can adjust:

  • Network notification: By default, when Wi-Fi is on, you receive notifications in the Status bar when your device detects an open Wi-Fi network. Uncheck this option to turn off notifications.
  • Keep Wi-Fi during sleep: To conserve mobile data usage, your device stays connected to Wi-Fi when the screen goes to sleep.
  • Touch this option to change this default behavior: either to stay connected to Wi-Fi only when the device is connected to a charger (when battery life isnt a problem), or never to stay connected to Wi-Fi during sleep. The latter choice is likely to increase mobile data usage. You may want to revisit this setting if you receive a notification that youre approaching your specified mobile data limit.

This screen also displays the following information:

  • MAC address: The Media Access Control (MAC) address of your device when connected to a Wi-Fi network.
  • IP address: The Internet Protocol (IP) address assigned to the device by the Wi-Fi network you are connected to (unless you used the IP settings to assign it a static IP address).
  • To turn Wi-Fi on or off, go to Settings, Wireless & networks, and then Wi-Fi.
  • To manage mobile data options, go to Settings, Wireless & networks, and then Data usage.
