Description:

How to turn Private Address off or on for a network
In some cases, a network might not allow devices with a private address to join, or the device can join but the network won't allow any further access. In such cases, you can choose to turn off the Private Address setting for that particular network.  
You must turn this off to connect to DELHI-SECURE & DELHI-GUEST

To stop using a private address with a specific Wi-Fi network:

Instructions:

  1. Open Settings
  2. Click Wi-Fi
  3. Tap the information button  next to the network.
  4. Tap slider to turn Private Address OFF (it should NOT be green). If your device joined the network without using a private address, a privacy warning explains why.
