  3. From your list of available Wi-Fi connections, click on the menu button of your device.
  4. Choose Advanced.
  5. Uncheck the “Auto network switch” option in this screen.
  6. Use the back button until you’ve reached the Connections tab of your settings.
  7. Click on “More networks”, then “Mobile networks”.
  • If you have “Connections optimizer”, uncheck the Connections Optimizer box.  This line may include your carrier’s name.

If you have not configured your Seagate Wireless Plus to automatically concurrently connect (http://knowledge.seagate.com/articles/en_US/FAQ/005104en), Connections Optimizer will not allow you to stay connected.
If you are still having problems, please try connecting with another device or move the drive to another area.
