Well, first of all you will need the name or the IP address of the rpi4 plus the password, I think the password with the script is 12345678 and you should then change, to use VNC, then when in there, just click on your home WiFi in the network list and “connect” same as any PC, but you will then have to re connect your VNC after a few mins to get back in, but no reboot should be required..
But as long as your home WiFi is in range, it will auto connect to that first, so you should not have to do any of the swapping around really...

That display setting on the SM app, always shows 4K on mine too, so does not work correctly, you have to change the setting in the SM config text file, the reason it’s so small on the tablet, is be side the res is set for desktop use..

Turn it off auto and put to 5GHz only, it’s fine then... :)

The hotspot by default is set to -10, so not sure why you had to change to -5.... mine is on -10...

I have both wlan1 and wlan0 work on boot up, the wlan0 is set to just show the hotspot, and wlan1 is my USB dongle and connected to my home WiFi, now in the network settings you can tell each connection to use a certain wlan connection, I use the hotspot to connect to the unit, and then the dongle to give me internet access....
It seems very straight forward to get it all to work this way, so not sure why the issue are..both mine connect on boot and run fine together...

Which SM version are you using, I have the very latest KDE version...and if you click on the network icon top right of screen and then it should show all available networks, click you home WiFi, and enter password and that should be it...next time you boot up it should join it, and if it’s not available to join, it will auto start the hotspot...
you can also check in the settings of that connection and make sure the band is on auto and other settings too... I don’t see why this will not work for you

No it’s doesn’t, mine works perfectly in both hotspot and on home WiFi, you have issues that are not related to the software I’m afraid... mine connects to home WiFi when it boots, and if home WiFi is not available, it starts the hotspot, and I connect to that...works every time.. :)

Yes, leave the hotspot as is, and just connect a second connection to your home WiFi, the rpi then will look for that first, and after a set time if it does not find, it will start the hotspot for you to connect too, this is the default setting of this system...
Just click on the network icon, and then the networks will show up, click the one you want and put password in and away you go...same as a PC... :)
