Local mode not being used

I just upgraded from a Droid 3 to a Samsung Galaxy S5. I have Home Buddy set up the same way as before, with my home SSID entered correctly in the 'Local SSIDs" field. However, no matter what I do, the app stays in remote mode. My S5 is running Android 4.4.2.

Facing same issue gimp freejobalert here too. Help is appreciated.

Thanks and Regards,
Shane

Um, did you notice the previous post was from almost five years ago? And your question today is the first response to it.
