Hi All,

I am trying to use wifi - station mode through "Wifi Settings - Default GUI" with imx8mqevk running AndroidP9.

Connection to an AP results in failure if it has a working Ethernet connection . Profile gets selected, saved but the connection is not complete. Same response with usage after toggling wifi ON/OFF / retries.


By default, i had an Ethernet cable attached, it was UP and running, once the Ethernet cable is detached, i could use wifi and it is able to connect an AP successfully.


It looks like, unless the Ethernet is detached, wifi GUI doesn't initiate a connection.


Results are same with both the Android 8.1 / Android 9 NXP provided demo images.


Target Platform: i.MX8MQ-EVK

OS: Android O8.1 / Android P9 NXP provided BSP.

Issue: Wifi doesn't connect when Ethernet connection is UP and running. 


Any Information / pointers to resolve this issue will be very helpful.


Thanks in Advance,

Ganga Vemula.
