    Oh, I don't actually have anything set up yet. I was just wondering what to expect for when I do. But that's interesting if that helps keep the Wifi going.

    On consoles affected by the issue it usually occurs within an hour iirc.

    An hour? OUCH. There go my plans of using Pocket Camp or Twitch with it.

    It’s possible that you won’t have any issues with it at all :P. To this day I still haven’t had any issues with wifi disconnects on Android or Ubuntu, even after 5+ hours of use.

    I assume you wanted to quote raine_em? I have Android OS working, I was only trying to help him or her

    I have used one of my Switch consoles with Android to stream PC games using Steam Link for hours at a time without ever having a drop in connection. It must be an issue that only affects random consoles.

    Is it normal with this to get “Nvidea games has stopped working” please mute until device restarts. Seems to happen constantly on booting up. Just wondering if this is fairly standard, am using stock.

    Do you think it is a good idea to play Nintendo mobile games with this? Could Nintendo detect you are using Android on Switch since you are connecting to Nintendo servers and ban you ?

    Yeah, it also happens to me

    Looking forward to being able to use joycons attached without Bluetooth, my right one just had the sync button die so I can't use it for Android anymore :(

    Is there an Ethernet-to-USB-C adapter that works with Switch on mobile mode?

    I believe OTG cables work the same in portable mode as the native USB ports in docked mode, so I don't see why Ethernet adapters wouldn't be the same.

    Ah sorry, my bad. I didn't realise this was the Android thread. I thought they were asking in general.

    I'd read recently about the wired analogue support, but this latest about the seamless switching between wired and wireless is even more awesome. Can't wait for the Pie release, sounds like it's going to be super slick.

    The wifi signal on the switch seems really weak for that, but then again I couldnt stand it with a vita either.
