Why does my Sentry show no internet connection when connected to the iPad or iPhone?

It is normal to see the notation "No Internet Connection" in the iPad or iPhone Settings app under Wi-Fi when connected to a Sentry. This is because the Sentry does not connect to the internet. Instead, it will receive the ADS-B broadcast data when receiving from ADS-B towers.

If you are connected to the Sentry as seen in Image 1 above, then your Sentry should be communicating with ForeFlight. You can also open ForeFlight and go to MORE > DEVICES to see if the Sentry is listed as a connected device.
