You now have successfully configured your device to connect to EUI-WiFi.

Your device will automatically connect to EUI-WiFi whenver it is in range and your wireless card is enabled and turned on.

Please Note: to save power, Android will connect to any wireless service only when it is required. If you find at times you don't have a connection, it may be because Android has decided it has no use for it at the time.
