Wi-Fi SSID manual override behavior

Always Connect Device to Managed Wi-Fi:



A user can select and override a Wi-Fi SSID connection by connecting manually.

For Always Connect Device to Managed Wi-Fi:



A user can attempt to select an SSID by connecting manually, however, if at any time a higher priority network is in range, the device disconnects from an unmanaged network and connects to the highest priority managed network.

If the user manually connects to a managed network, the connection is maintained even if a higher priority managed network comes into range.
