First of all, I would recommend  you to check the Wi-Fi signal reception of your soundbar.

It is so easy to check with Multiroom app which is available at Google Play Market.(I believe you are using it already)

Just open Settings - Network Status then it will show you Wi-Fr signal receptions for each speakers. 

 

If you are using your soundbar connected to your TV via the Bluetooth(or TV sound connect), I will not use it.

Because there are a lot of interferences in 2.4GHz wireless frequency area which is used by the Bluetooth and other wireless devices including Microwaves as well.

 

hope this would be helpful.

Where is the fix? I have had the Samsung Q7 Series (55) tv and Samsung Soundbar MS650 for 6 months. In that time the soundbar will stop sound even when it still shows as connected. The soundbar needs to be reset before it will work again. I can switch to other devices using SmartThings. This is not a WIFI issue it is some Firmware issue between the TV and the soundbar. Where is the fix for this?

I purchased the Q80 got home set it all up, but could not get the TV and speaker to connect via WIFI. Hours of trying I gave up. Next day turn the tv on, sound bar fires up and connects. YAY! Couple days later sound bar won't connect to tv or SmartThings app. Reboot and delete then reset all up and it works again. Couple days later all connections gone again. Give up only to have it all connect again a week later. Then get up the next day nothing. How can you spend this kind of money on a sound bar that I have no idea will work from day to day!?? I can connect my phone via Bluetooth yet can't see it on the SmartThings app on the same phone???? So done with this *****.
