Many of the websites or applications you connect your wallet to require you to be using a specific network.
Currently, most websites use the main Ethereum network and new connections to your wallet usually default to this network. If you'd like to switch networks or wallets, you can easily do this in two ways on either your Android or iOS device:
Switching networks or wallets when first connecting to a site:
After scanning the WalletConnect QR code or tapping Rainbow in the WalletConnect list, a connection prompt will appear in the Rainbow app.
Step 1: Tap on the Network section in the bottom right corner of the connection prompt to bring up a list of available Networks
Step 2: Select the Network you want to connect with
Step 3: Tap on the Wallet section in the bottom left corner of the connection prompt to bring up a list of available Wallets
Step 4: Select the Wallet you want to connect with
Switching networks or wallets after you're already connected:
If you've already connected to a website and you want to go back and change your connection or wallet after the fact, you can do this from the Connection Manager screen.
Step 1: Navigate to the Discover section of the app by tapping the Discover button in the top right of the Balances page
Step 2: Tap on the QR Scanner icon in the top right
Step 3: Tap on the button displaying the number of existing apps connected
Step 4: View all of your existing connections in one place
Step 5: Tap on a Network name on the right to change it to a different Network
Step 6: Tap on the site's name on the left to switch wallets, switch networks, or disconnect
Layer 2 Networks
Up until recently, and many other blockchain projects have only been compatible with Ethereum-the world's public decentralized ledger. Ethereum is extremely secure and highly reliable, but it isn't always well suited for speed and efficiency. What does this mean for you? It means inexpensive and instant transactions.
Step 1: You'll start by clicking the QR scanner in the upper right hand corner on your main wallet screen. Step 2: Next, you'll click the prompt under the scanner that displays how many apps you have connected. Step 3: Once clicked, a list of your connected apps will appear.
