    LG Velvet, Android 11, I've exhausted all background data and wifi useage settings I could find. When wifi is on there is a continuos wifi usage causing a battery drain. I've used an app to detect what apps are using wifi and how much wifi they are using. The culprit appears to be "the android" symbol and "tethering." My tethering is off and all tethering settings have been checked. This happens when the screen is locked or unlocked. Any thoughts on what this continuos wifi usage can be? I've attached a screen shot from the wifi usage monitoring app.

    No option to force stop tethering. Tethering permission is Phone and unable to deny. Can't clear data or cache. Other apps included in tethering usage is Cell Broadcast Service, Network Manager, com.android.server.NetworkPermissionConfig. Background restrictions in place, not excluded from power saving exclusions.

    Clear data and clear cache are grayed out. Still no option to force stop tethering.

    Then again. I think this only happens on my home network. My battery didn't seem to drain at work on the wifi network. Figured this could be useful information!

    Ok, try rebooting your router by unplugging its power for about 30 seconds.

    Not quite sure I can find this. Would this be the wifi network the phone is connected to?

    I can find the wifi usage under the mobile data settings. Shows greatest usage to least.
