    My S5 connects to my wireless hub just fine. But once it connects it slows our DSL down to a crawl. We just upgraded and got three S5s and they all three to the same thing. How do I fix this problem. Our old Samsungs did not do this. Help!!!

    Welcome to Android Central! Do you know if your router has any QoS (Quality of Service) settings turned on? This setting can be used to prioritize certain connections over others (like, for example, if you want to make sure a streaming video on your smart TV doesn't get choppy, it get's the top QoS, while other devices that don't need as fast a connection get bumped down to a lower QoS.

    You'd have to log into the router using your computer's browser. Check your router's manual for instructions on how to do so.

    I have not had any problem for 3 years until we got these phones.

    That's pretty weird. Try rebooting the router, or temporarily turning off the router security. Review this guide for more info: http://forums.androidcentral.com/amb...-problems.html

    I tried rebooting. I changed setting on phone. I removed connection and redid it. The WIFI works great on the phone once connected. It just will not allow anything else to work in our home network. Slow the DSL down to a crawl. WIFI runs 100 MPH while is connected.

    Did you ever figure this out? I just got the s5 about a month ago and everytime I turn on Wifi in my house, the whole internet connection slows down and I cannot connect with any other device.

    Yes I did. The phone was taking updates to several programs. Let it run over night and all should be good.
