Under Network Connections in Preferences there is a SSID entry named MY_TOR_AP that allows editing, while the rest of the connections do not. How do I configure this entry to allow my Android phone to connect to the wifi interface? However, I am able to connect to the remaining wifi connections associated with Network Connections.
