    How I can check whether my oneplus 9 pro wifi 6 working or not ? My wife S21 Plus showing wifi 6 indicator in the setting and wifi icon.

    9 pro doesn't show anything, so how I can verify WiFi 6 is working? Screenshot_20210626-182332.jpg FB_IMG_1624728991896.jpg

    As per the image @Swejuggalo has posted above. Click on your home connection SSID in the WiFi Analyzer, it will bring up a box and you will be able to see the protocol connected as per my image here that shows I am connected to WiFi 5 802.11ac yours should show 802.11ax which is WiFi 6 and will connect at that broadcast protocol.

    It has the 6 in the symbol too.

    Android 12 DP1 shows a 6 in the WiFi symbol. It's not that Oneplus can't show it... I just assume they choice not to make a difference between different types of WiFi. I even disable the WiFi symbol completely myself... 😉

    Not everyone care about seeing if it is using WiFi 6 or 5 either.
    Personally I see it as equally important to know if it's WiFi 4 or 5. Does it not matter if your WiFi 5 router refuses to use WiFi 5 and instead jumps to WiFi 4? 🤷

    Of some reason Oneplus might prefer a more minimalistic WiFi icon. I guess we see if they will show it or not when Oxygen OS 12 comes.

    In my case I don't really care what the symbol shows or not. When I want to know stuff about the WiFi I'm using I prefer the data shown by tools like WifiAnalyzer anyway because to me it's not enough just to know if it's WiFi 6 or or WiFi 5.

    You asked a question, you received courteous answers. Why are you making insidious accusations, which are not true by the way, to a person who is trying to help you with your query.

    I will never understand why people come on for help and then decide to denegrate the people who help them. Does it make you feel better or superior in some way to do that 🙄

    I read what @Swejuggalo replied. And I still don't see how you decide to turn it into a rant against him for helping you. Most disingenuous to that. Costs nothing to be respectful.

    He just literally saying no wifi 6 indicator will be no issue. Since he not using.. but "his" doesn't mean everyone. With this WiFi 6 indicator oneplus also can't deal with it... Don't even need to say about all those bugs will be fix in the future.. just 1 SIMPLE DIM BRIGHTNESS. Already took oneplus 7 updates and NO FIX. ,

    I kind of expected similar response since I sensed a certain wibe... Does it help you in some way to get what you want? Was I somehow rude? If your own interpretation of what I wrote offends you, it was not my intention.

    I just told what I am thinking and what I do. I couldn't care less if the icon constantly shows WiFi 6 or just simply WiFi. It's my OWN opinion.
    I don't have the need to constantly see it. If YOU apparently MUST have it is it everyone else's fault that you don't have it?
    I even told you the current 12 DP1 shows WiFi 6 icon and you decide to... hmm... "attack" me... Nice.

    That's his opinion, same as you have an a opinion. But he's not having a go at you, he is trying to help. Nothing more nothing less. 🙄

    We should have from Oneplus an indicator to know that we are using wifi 6
