Connect to Internet

Your rating: None Average: 5 (5 votes)

Always wanted to have the easy "Connect to Internet" button, like the one on the N900 and N9/N950?
Tired of going all those menus, just to switch to a different network?

No need to wait anymore!

With this simple tool, you can add the "Connect to Internet" button to the Pulley menu in your Lockscreen!


  • I've installed it, but I still don't have this damn option!?

After you've installed this, go to the "Settings > System > Shortcuts" and add "Connect to Internet" to the shortcut list.
That's all!

  • I don't have the "Shortcuts" menu in my Settings?

Be sure that you're at least running on firmware or above!

  • What should I do with the beautiful icon on my homescreen?

Well, it's up to you, you may hide the (beautiful) icon that is on your homescreen into a folder.

  • I can't connect to my WiFi.

Not my problem. Go ask your parents.


Have fun!

This is a very nice app. However I disabled it, because I miss a quick shortcut to disable internet to save power.

If I could have an option named "Disable internet" or an exhanced Connect to Internet where I could choose if I want to connect to wifi or mobile network or disconnect some already connected networks.

Also other menu pully options as "Connect to WiFi" or "Connect to mobile network" could be an idea.

Keep up the good work :)

You could install the SailfishOS Patches (Formerly known as Pandora), you can add toggles to the Event View screen. So you can disable your network connection at the Event View screen. (The screen where you swipe up from the bottom of the screen)

When you select "Connect to Internet" again, you can just select the Connection you want, even if the toggles are disabled.

I know it's a workaround, but it does work :)

While this might work I would love to see the sources. Any chance for that? :)

I don't think this will be possible without a some hack.
But I will look if I can get this to work
