Since updating the app my phone won't stay connected to my network. All other devices stay connected fine, and my phone stays connected to other networks. It even stays connected if I disconnect the firewalla device. This all started today after updating this app. The phone is not quarantined either. Nothing is in quarantine. It can connect for about 10 - 20 seconds max, then disconnects.

Can you connect your phone to other Wifi Networks or LTE and open Firewalla app to check if your phone has been blocked or quarantined? If it's quarantined, the phone may fail to connect the wifi network. Updating app itself won't change the rules on the box. If it doesn't work out, you may contact us at help@firewalla.com so that we can help.

I have worked in the data comms industry for many years. I have used everything from the complex Cisco ios to the simplest GUI network appliance. Offering an independent firewall these days in a lincense model market is not easy. Firewalla not only offers a professional level featured firewall but the ongoing support that even corporate tier firewalls receive. As a network engineer, I recommend Firewalla for both personal and professional environments. Thanks for a great line of products.
