Yes, there is.  Under Wifi Settings, select Advanced.

Deselect Auto network switch.  This "new" feature disconnects any wifi connection that does not connect to the Internet so any Hot Spots created by cameras will be automatically disconnected.

That worked for me.

So you can connect to the camera?  You can preview the photos but can't save?

Are you shooting raw only? I believe only jpgs transfer.

It does actually, if you select it then it'll never work because the phone can't see the internet on your camera so it refuses the connection. Not saying you don't have some other problem, just making sure you don't add to it.

The same problem happened to me with S4 kitkat and em-10.

Oly fixed that with a new version of OI Share: search on google play and download the new OI Share version.

It fix the problem you mentioned and everything works well.

the problem was caused by the fact that who had a smartphone with an extra memory card inserted. If you take out memory card from the phone, it worked. Now they fixed the problem and you can let the extra memory card inside the phone!

Which means that the problem is caused by KitKat"s new handling secondary (external) storage permissions

Exactly.  Every developer who's app uses general file access is having to rewrite for KitKat's media / SD permissions and issue an update, and everyone who is using the app must apply the update (and hope that it doesn't break something on non-KitKat models).  Try a Google on "es file explorer KitKat" or "SD card KitKat".
