    installed DP5 on my Pixel 2 last night.
    all good except that it won't connect to one of the 2 WIFI networks i use - makes no attempt to connect at all.

    the SSID is hidden, so it's a manuall add, correct SSID, correct password.

    the iphone sitting next to the phone is currently connected to it with no problems.
    the pixel 2 on Oreo also had no problems connecting to it.

    used Ping Tools Pro and that even doesn't detect the WIFI network on a WIFI scan.

    any ideas?

    That's what beta versions are for. Make a list of everything - the make and model of the router, the settings in the router, the settings in the phone - and submit it as a trouble. It looks as if there may be a DP6 necessary. Better now than when it's already been installed on tens of thousands of phones.

    No Wi-Fi issues with my Pixel 2 XL on DP5.

    You might try resetting the network functions: Settings -> System -> Reset options -> Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth.

    You'll have to re-enter your Wi-Fi info and re-pair any Bluetooth devices.

    You might try resetting the network functions:.
    it was a clean install, not an upgrade.
    so that wouldn't be applicable in this instance.

    I don't think you can be sure about that. Have you tried it?

    Also, since it is a manual add and a clean install, are you certain that you have entered the correct password? I can't tell you how many times Wi-Fi problems turn out to be a bad password, even in cases where the user was absolutely positive it was being entered correctly.

    yes i can be sure about it.
    the phone was wiped, and the wifi network was added.
    and please! do you seriously think i'd have posted about a potential bug without having made sure the password was typed correctly!

    incidentally, i've found that if i change two advanced settings (not sure if these are new settings or not), then it will connect.
    the first setting is "metered" - i manually set that to "unmetered".
    the second setting is "hidden networking" - i set that to "yes", although it says this might be a security risk.

    note that in Oreo i didn't need to set anything like this for this partilcular WIFI network. it worked simply by entering the SSID and password.
