Prerequisites for Wi-Fi network connection on the Karoo 1:
The Karoo 1 only supports 2.4GHz wireless networks. Though 5GHz networks can be present without causing interference, Karoo 1 cannot connect to 5GHz wireless networks.
The Karoo also supports Captive portal networks. These are often found in hotels, restaurants, and airports which send devices to a web page for authentication or acceptance of terms before granting internet access.
The Karoo only connects to WiFi channels 1 - 11. Though most WiFi routers will auto-select a channel from 1 - 11, on some routers it's possible for the channel to be set outside this range manually.
You will also be able to connect the Karoo to Mobile Hotspots.
If you are facing any issues, follow these steps:
- Try forgetting the network from the list of saved Wi-Fi networks under the "Settings -> Wi-Fi", reboot the router, and reconnect.
- Isolate the issue by connecting another device to the Wi-Fi network and see if the uploads and downloads are working fine.
- As a final step, check to see if you still have issues by using another WiFi/Hotspot connection entirely.
