Android waiting for upload on home WiFi

Android waiting for upload on home WiFi

Hi!

I can't upload files with my android to Dropbox. I get message: Waiting for upload.

What is interesting, when I connect my phone to my second mobile phone Android hotspot, then I can upload files. But when I am on my home WiFi then I get that message.

As a first step, could you please send me a screenshot (omitting personal info) of the (error) message that you’re seeing so as to have a better understanding of your concern? 
 
Thanks in advance! :grin:

Hi there @Escobar, could you please let me know the following so that I have a better understanding of the behavior you’re experiencing:
  • Are you able to automatically upload while WiFi and data is turned on at the same time, or only when your cellular data is enabled?
  • Are you having this issue with all photos or videos as well?
  • Have you checked your network settings from your mobile device by any chance?
Let me know what you find!
