Save option is whited out ..

Postby cohara » Wed Jun 11, 2014 11:31 am

It pisses me off & blows my mind that 2 trillion dollar companies, Samsung & Google are so threatened by AdBlock plus they would block the save option.
Maybe I did something wrong....
I have a TMobile Note 2 ; android 4.3
I followed instructions - Maybe I am doing something wrong, the phone will not let me save the new settings.
opened wifi
1. added my password
2. advance options
3. proxy settings - manual
4. Proxy host name current default is proxy.example.com - I changed to "LOCAL HOST '
5 changed port - to 2020
6..* Bypass Proxy for ... currently the default is ( example.com mycom.test - ) I tried both Local Host & left it alone -??
[/color]
7. IP settings ( tried both DHCP and Static ) [color=#0040FF]

thanks in advance for your help :)

Ditto, can't save manually entered options. Any solutions yet?

My "Save button" is greyed out, as well, however, the following just worked for me on LG F3:

On WiFi Networks screen, I tapped on my network and tapped "Forget" button.

I then tapped on my network again,
entered my network password,
checked "Show advanced options" box,
set Proxy Settings to "Manual",
entered "localhost" for Proxy hostname,
entered 2020 (this number will vary) for Proxy port,
tapped on "Connect".

So it seems the trick is instead of trying to modify the advanced options after connected, enter the advanced options while connecting. I haven't had to employ this trick on most phones (i.e. no greyed out Save button issue), but for those phones with no greyed out Save button issue, the above has worked. I hope it works for others, as well. :D
