@pip57: While you're connected to the relevant network, can you try heading to Settings > Connections > Wi-Fi > Tap the cog symbol to the right of your router > Auto reconnect, and make sure that this is toggled on. Tap the back button to return to the Wi-Fi landing page > Tap the 3 dots in the top right > Advanced > Switch to mobile data > Off > Turn on Wi-Fi automatically > On. If the issue persists, can you confirm if the problem occurs in all locations where you frequently connect to Wi-Fi, or just certain ones?
Even though the toggle is on it still does not auto use wifi first for me. Help!!!
I have precisely the same problem with a brand new Galaxy Tab S8.
It periodically drops the wifi connection and will not reconnect automatically.
I can manually reconnect, but the automatic reconnection does not work. The automatic reconnection is switched ON.
The Samsung S8 has this problem with two different routers.
I have 3 other Android devices which NEVER have this problem. Even when tested at the same location in the house.
The software is up to date, I've tried reboots etc etc. I'm about to do a factory reset on my NEW Tab, as recommended by Samsung, despite this not working for all the people on Reddit with the same problem.
The S8 tab will be returned to the retailer within the 30 day limit if I cannot fix this. I'm happy with everything else on the tab, but cannot accept uncompetitive wifi stability.
Any reply that fixes the problem would be much appreciated.
Also, why is "Solved" shown at the top, when people state this has not fixed the problem ?
Agree, my S22 Ultra does the exact same thing. Let me know if you end up finding a solution.
That absolutely does not work...
