I found out to get the wifi and data connection to work the way I wanted. The rules I had were way to complicated. Now I have a data rule with trigger my wifi network action disable data. If I turn of my dsl router the data connection comes on. When the dsl router is powered up wifi connects and turns off data connection.

 Didn't work for me either.  For me, a better solution is the app Y5 Battery Saver.  Install it, set it up to locate WiFi networks you want, enable it and that's it.  Get home (or any other location you set) and WiFi turns on.  Leave home (or any other location you set) and WiFi turns off.  You might want to take a look at my other recent thread about Location Triggers.

Hi Barrytest,


Its simple to turn items on/off  when entering or leaving locations. For example


 


Trigger:


Location 


 


Action:


Wifi - disable


cellular data - off


 


Upon entering the location your wifi and cellular data turn off. When exiting the location the rule will turn off and revert to your previous setting (turn wifi and cullular data back on). Recognizing a location is not always immediate, give Smart Actions 1-mins to figure things out. :)


In earlier versions wi-fi was not allowed to be disabled when a location trigger was added but our newest version has fixed that limitation. Update to the latest!
