WiFi doesn't work on my Hero 5 Session

Hello. Im trying to connect my camera to iPhone 7. I can see camera in the GoPro App and can pair it. But then there is no way to connect to camere because camera doesn't start wifi. I can't found it on my laptop or iPhone. On the camera screen I see the WiFi sign, but it is not possible to find this network.

I'v already tried:

1. reset all connections

2. factory reset

3. reinstal gopro app (but of course it is not related, because it is problem with wifi on the camera)

4. install last firmware on the camera

But it still doesn't work.

Re: WiFi doesn't work on my Hero 5 Session

Sorry to hear that @supercave67655

What it sounds like is the camera maybe is in remote 

mode and not app mode you'll need to change this in the wifi settings.
