Hi @RobKing 


Is connecting to the Internet using your Home Wi-Fi connection unusable ?

Some phone's prefer 2.4gzh or 5ghz so if you can split the frequencies in your Home Broadband Router do so and forget the network in your phone and reset up the connection and then connect to one and then the other to see what happens.

Your phone has a diagnostic tool in your Samsung Members App you could run.

I've also seen blogs where if a person turns on Developer Mode in their phone by going onto Settings,  About Phone,  Tap Software Information, Build Number and tapping on the build number 7 times, come out of the settings screen and then go back in and developer mode will show and they have turned On certain settings and this has improved Wi-Fi,  however be careful. Google Search this.
