I'm trying to connect my android phone (Android 8.0.0) to my T7i using the Canon Camera Connect app. The phone shows the correct camera SSID in the listof networks, but when I try to connect to that camera network I see "Internet may not be available" although it supposedly connects to that network. But the camera never changes from "Waiting to connect". I've attached images (1) from the phone showing the camera as the current network but with the warning message, (2) from the phone showing the (supposed) connection to the camera network and (3) the camera saying that it's still waiting on a connection.
Solved! Go to Solution.
This might help:
See page 25. It should work under Android Oreo. (Your OS)

Thanks! However, on page 22 of that manual, where it says to select "Paring" , on my camera "Pairng" is disabled. Is that a clue??
It might be.
Can you connect via Bluetooth? Bluetooth can automate the Wi-Fi connection process. Also, be sure to use the default camera name, do not rename it until you establish a connection.
The "Pairing" that was disabled was a part of the section on "Establishing a Bluetooth Connection", so I guess the answer is that I didin't get a Bluetooth Connection established.
Was the phone looking for a Bluetooth connection, too? It would need be to connect to the camera.
