    1) The hosts file can only be edited if you're rooted.

    2) The hosts file just speeds up the connection process by not having to ask a DNS server for the address of the site (if you have that site in the file) and it can block sites by saying that your phone is the address of the site (which is how a lot of ad blockers work - they refer all known ad hosting sites to your phone). Not even having a hosts file won't cause a problem - the default hosts file is a few lines of comments, and most computers never have it changed.

    3) If your wifi Advanced settings has a setting for auto network switching, turn it off.
