GalaxyS5 Constantly Disconnecting – Reconnecting WiFi
Does your Samsung #GalaxyS5 constantly notify you that it’s reconnecting to your #WiFi? Well, so did both of ours and it’s a fairly recent problem, most likely caused by some infernal #Android update that’s not ready for prime time. Are you listening, #Google?
Here’s the #DIY? fix:
Go to Settings > Network Connections > WiFi
(NOT Settings > WiFi)
Uncheck the Smart Network Switch at the very top of the page. That’s all you have to do.
It’s a QOS (Quality of Service) setting that no longer works the way it’s supposed to. The original design was to switch off of a WiFi that had a bad signal and back over to cellular data to maintain a reliable data connection.
The new version of Smart Network Switch seems to have more of a room-temperature IQ, so disabling the rascal solves the problem.
