Question: Apple Watch (watchOS 4.3) Wi-Fi with login page problem

Hello,

I noticed that after upgrading to watchOS 4.3, the Apple Watch doesn't connect to a Wi-Fi as it used to. It is well known that it cannot connect to a public Wi-Fi that has a login page, but with older versions of watchOS it was working if the iPhone was connected at the same Wi-Fi network, probably because they were on the same LAN. Has anyone noticed this same behavior? I don't know if that is due to a change in the college Wi-Fi network or to watchOS 4.3

Apple Watch, watchOS 4.3, null

If the WiFi uses standard WPA type authentication the watch should be able to connect to a 2.4 GHz network, but be aware the watch does not support 5GHz networks. There are no relevant changes from 4.2 to 4.3. The only requirement is that the phone has connected to the WiFi at some time in the past so it has the authentication credentials cached.


Maybe the watch has lost the password. Try disconnecting the WiFi from the iPhone (tell the phone to “forget” the network, then reconnect). This should force the new credentials to be pushed to the watch.
