    Default WiFi not connecting on Galaxy S4

    Hey guys,

    After upgrading my Samsung Galaxy S4 to 4.4.2 I haven't been able to connect to any WiFi networks. When I pull down the notification bar and tap the WiFi icon to turn the WiFi on it turns a dull green and stays like that for a few seconds, then goes back to being the colour before I tapped it. Other times, it turns the usual green but it doesn't connect to any WiFi networks and says "not in range" to those WiFi networks that I connected to before the update. It shows it scanning but nothing comes up. Another member of my family has the Samsung Galaxy S4 and they haven't updated there phone to 4.4.2 yet and they haven't got this problem.

    I have no clue how to sort this out. I've turned my phone off and waited a bit then turned it back on many times, to no avail. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

    Thanks

    If this issue just started happening immediately after the update then reset. Be sure to sync and backup your data beforehand so your data is not lost.

    So I did the factory reset and the problem is still there but now the wifi sign changes to the green colour instantly and brings up the wifi networks, but they are still "not in range".

    Make sure time and date are correct. This may seem trivial but just double check.
