Re: in connection in wifi

Specifying deviceside=true instructs that the connection be made over the carrier's network.  If the carrier supports UMA, then the connection could be made over Wi-Fi (still going through the carrier's network).  You can use ;deviceside=true;interface=wifi to make a connection directly over Wi-Fi.
