Transfer Wifi settings

Hey everyone,

 

I'm not able to transfer my saved wifi connections from my old xperia to the XZ1, which previously always worked.

 

Has anyone a clue?

If you check under your Gmail/Google account, are you syncing everything?

Have you synced them with Google?

 

Have you tried Xperia Transfer Mobile?

Re: Transfer Wifi settings

Yes that's what I always do. But I can transfer everything but not wifi. When I save it on my old phone there is the wifi option, later on the new one not.

Re: Transfer Wifi settings

Do you know how to restore it with Google, I mean there isn't a wifi option in the google sync options...

The easiest thing to do is to use Xperia Mobile Transfer, but which Xperia is your old device?

Yes I know but I have tried this 5 times and the wifi settings will not appear in the settings, maybe due to new settings in android 8?...

Do you still have your old device? which Xperia is it?

On your Xperia X 

 

 

Settings > Backup & reset > More > Manual backup so you can see that WiFi its selected > back > back

Back up my data > ON

Backup account make sure that it is the same Gmail account 

Automatic restore On

 

Do the same on your new Xperia

Thanks a lot for your effort. I have found the problem but not the solution. With the XZ1 there is no wifi toggle in the transfer app anymore. So any way with google only?
