That's interesting...maybe the external router provides you with an IP address? You can see that on the advanced wifi dialog on my version of Android. In the case of this recorder, it will not actually provide my phone with an IP address because of the behavior described in the stackexchange article.

I have an update: I did run the command referenced in that stackexchange article, and it did solve the issue entirely (even with my cellular data connection on).

I already had root access to my phone, which is a requirement for the mod. If you've got root access but are stuck on how to do this, let me know and I'll post the procedure I used.

I also intend to send something to Tascam support. I am hopeful that they can use my experience to update the firmware and/or app to deal with Android's behavior. On the app review page, I see lots of other people who can't connect the app to the recorder, and I am thinking this is why.

OK, one more update to set the record straight: in my last post, I said that the command referenced in the stackexchange post worked. After doing some more testing, I have discovered that it didn't work for me. The post does have a response saying it doesn't work in Nougat, which is what I'm running. I think I may have had the cellular data off when I ran the command? Turning off cellular still does allow me to connect every time.

I did write to Tascam support describing my experience, but no reply yet. If I get a meaningful response, I'll post something here.

It's fun to finally be able to play around with this thing and use the remote feature. FYI, there is a recent firmware update (2.10) that adds an 'erase format function' that 'might improve write speeds'  :) and some fixes for the divide function and 'stability'. So far, it's been solid for me. Seems like they might have changed the UI/font since the last version? They posted a new reference manual at the same time, so it's a pretty substantial update.

My next testing will be to see what kind of battery life I will get with the WiFi on using NiMH batteries. I think I read in the manual or in this thread that it will shut down the Wifi if the battery gets low, but keep recording. I typically only check levels for the first couple of songs and then leave them alone. I guess I could turn off the WiFi by feel (the button feels much different than the rest).

New firmware release (2.11) out at http://tascam.com/product/dr-22wl/downloads/

Fixes in version 2.11
- During playback of certain MP3 files, searching/backward would cause the counter to change, but the playback sound would be from the beginning of the file. This has been fixed.
- The contents of folders with names that included certain characters could not be referenced. This has been fixed.
- If an unformatted card was loaded into the unit while its power was on, when the "Format Error/Format Card Are you sure?" message appeared, an execution button to allow formatting did not appear on the display. This has been fixed.
