Support Request: How to display Built-in cellular network status

Description

Hi Team,

We are in process to setup a touch screen tablet with built-in Cellular network capability in SiteKiosk configuration.
Is there a way to display cellular network status or a way to reset the network connection if needed?

Please advise and I look forward to hearing from you soon.

Thank you,
Drumil

There is not another option for cellular networks like the wifi connect tool we discussed earlier. If you choose the option "Let Windows manage this connection" for your cell network the it will only connect to the cell network if another connection, like wifi, is not available. The alternative would be to install a third-party classic application (.exe) to manage that and allow that application in SiteKiosk.

Thank you for the information.
Can you recommend any 3rd party solution which could assist in this matter?

I do not have any recommendations for a third party application for that. Would you be using this as a back up in case there is no wifi?

No, We are hoping to keep celluar as primary connection

Windows offers the option to use a cell network "when wifi is poor" or "always". I recommend using that as the default and using the wifi connect tool we discussed earlier to choose wifi networks when necessary. The cell network options from Windows 10 cannot be accessed while SiteKiosk is running so that will need to be set up after closing SiteKiosk and while logged in as admin.
