    Default Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 wifi problem

    Hey Sorry if something like this has been posted many times. But, my wifi problems seems to be different than most of the problems I have seen.
    I have owned a galaxy tab 3 for 4 months now, it was great! Until a few days ago when the wifi suddenly started to drop. The wifi would turn off at random moments and turn on again but, the wifi would connect for 20-30 seconds only to turn off again. The tab 3 would sometimes turn on only to tell me that there are no networks in range even when I am very close to the router. Whenever I reboot my device it would connect again but for only a few seconds. Sometimes when turning on the Wifi it would just be stuck there turning on until I reboot.

    Device is a Samsung Galaxy Tab 3 10 inches.

    I have searched everywhere,but most problems have been solved by factory resetting which I have done already.

    Thanks in advance!

    Welcome to Android Central! The issue could be with your router. Have you tried rebooting the router? See this guide for more tips: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...-problems.html

    Yes, I have. I also have other devices connected to that router.
    I've tried everything in that troubleshooting guide. Its definitely not my router, its the device.

    Go to your tablet's wi-fi settings, and look for any Advanced settings that have to do with "wi-fi optimization" or "avoiding a weak signal." Uncheck all of them, and see if things improve.

    I have the same problem!
    I have two Galaxy Tab 3 7" wifi - one that works perfecly well, but the other one has the same wifi malfunction!
    Is it possible to check if it´s a hardware problem?

    My Tab 3 8" is 15 months old. The wifi started to drop out intermittently about 1 month ago. I have rest to factory settings and reset the memory cache several times. My router is ok since a laptop and blackberry phone have no connection problems. After a complete power off for a time, wifi works for a short while. I suspect a heat caused failing wifi component. Any fixex?
