S7 edge mobile hotspot wont stay on

New Member

Since one of my last software updates my mobile hotspot switches itself off automatically and won't stop on. It used to work ok. 

I have tried a factory reset which fixed it for a while but now has started doing it again. 

I even tried switching off WiFi and putting it on but it just automatically slides itself to off and puts the WiFi back on! 

I need it for my laptop to tether Bluetooth tethering works fine

Hi @susancelica.


Try Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi > Advanced, and toggle 'Smart Network Switch' to off. This'll stop the phone automatically looking for a Wi-Fi connection.

Hi, Has your issue been resolved?

I'm encountering the same issue on my S7 Edge (SM-G935FD). 

Thank you.
