I updated the system update 3 days ago and since then I have had issues staying connected to WiFi. I'm constantly getting an exclamation mark next to the WiFi icon and it dips or lags every few minutes  The same happened to my partner's s7 when he updated the day after. Did a quick Google search and this has been a common theme for months. Anyone else having this problem?

How is your connection now? As I'm waiting to see if a SH3 cures this issue before installing it.

We don't have one yet. Not called up because we've been on holiday but I will be ringing them tomorrow.

It's been solid. My S7 hasn't dropped once and my son's J8(?) has also remained connected to SH3 whereas it hardly ever remained connected to SH2.

 

It seems to have solved it for me; not sure I want the heady responsibility of recommending you change.

Brilliant, thanks for letting us know. Mine's downloading now, hopefully will see some improvement. 

 

EDIT: Looking much better!

I'm glad 😊 hopefully everyone else who has had problems will get an update soon. My daughter's huawei p10 lite is still having the issue.

My BTU sim free S7 Edge also had the update Yesterday and although I don't want to count my chickens it does seem to stay connected.

Well the update fixed the connection issues but I've noticed another 'smaller' BTU update and was wondering if anyone has installed that one too? I don't want to install this new update if It's going to knacker up the previous connection fixes.

The problem is still there, I'm waiting for the OS update in Oct, maybe it will solve this issue
