I'd be grateful if anyone could offer any suggestions to this problem: I have 2 Gmail accounts set up on my S4 mini; they are set to sync every 5 minutes. This works fine when I am either on a Wi-Fi network or not on a Wi-Fi network but there seems to be a problem when a new/potential Wi-Fi network is found. In this situation the information icon at the top of the screen shows that I'm connected to Wi-Fi network, even if I actually need to register and sign in to the network. It seems then that I am neither properly connected to Wi-Fi or using my data and that the email accounts do not then sync at all for that period of time.
Can anyone offer any suggestions? I feel that must be a setting somewhere that I'm missing or haven't configured correctly as this seems very strange!
