Re: How to turn wifi on. On hero 5

[ New ]

Me too.  Wifi not working.  The wifi connection button just stays greyed out and can't connect via capture app.

I tried updating to the latest firmware a couple of times and factory reset but still nothing.

first step is to pair with smatphone/remote using "connect new device"...then you could press the ON/OFF button to activate wifi

@Anonymous - If you're seeing an option for "Connectivity", you're most likely running an old version of the camera's firmware. Updating the firmware should resolve this issue.

 

Instructions on how to do a manual update can be found at https://gopro.com/update/hero5.

 

Thanks,
