I'm developing a MAUI Blazor Application that the front-end has been working fine across Windows & Android emulators, as well as, an Android local device until now.

Recently I added access to an external/remote MySQL backend database which works fine in the Windows emulator, but I get the "The type initializer for 'MySql.Data.MySqlClient.Replication.ReplicationManager' threw an exception" error when I try to Open the connection in the Android emulator.

I wanted to prove if I could access the internet via the Android emulator or local device, so I created a "Ping test" blazor page. The Ping test works fine in the Windows emulator but fails in the Android emulator & device.

Which takes me back to my original question: What needs to be done in MAUI Blazor so the Android emulator can access the Internet?

    1) you must configure the desired emulator device via AVD manager to support network access (under actions)

    2) be sure WiFi is enabled in setting in emulator (home -> settings).
