Let’s jump into how to configure your PWG APN settings on an Android device. Before we start, let me assure you that it’s not rocket science! You’ll get it done quickly with a few steps and patience.

Here’s where things get interesting! If you don’t already have an APN set for PWG, we’ll need to create one from scratch.

Step 5. Hit that plus sign (+) or look for the ‘Add New’ option or three lines menu.

Now comes the fun part: filling out all those fields with just the right details. Here’s what they should look like:

Troubleshoot # 1. First, there could be a few reasons why you’re having trouble connecting to the internet even after setting up your PWG APN.
