    Hi. I'm having/had the same problem. When i took it to the service centre, the service staff said it was probably a fried motherboard. Then when i got it back after it was "repaired" the tech guy said it was a software issue so they rebooted it. I'm still facing the issue.

    With an additional black screen flicker every so often.

    I'm taking it back to get looked over

    Hi, I was facing the same problem and had been looking for a solution. After trying everything written on this thread for almost 5 hours.. I simply banged my Samsung galaxy note (N7000) on the table out of frustration. And it WORKED! I know you wont take it seriously but it actually started working again... I guess sometimes you just have to give some old school beating...

    I had the same issue with my gt 9505. After several actions, I found an app that was causing it to my cel. It was the batteryXL free. After installing the android 4.3, this app didn't work properly, shutting down the wi-fi. I hope it helps.

    My S4 was giving me the same problem, but it seems to have gone away after powering down, removing the battery, and powering back up. (Restarting, or powering on or off with the battery in place, did nothing.) I did not try removing the battery with the phone on.

    if your wifi is in your home only, you have to contact your wifi provider they are the only ones that can help you they do not need to look at your cell phone that's not part of their job but if your wifi is down and you have any other device that depends on it like a computer they have to come out and fix the wifi. I had this error for over a month finally somebody told me call your wifi provider tell them what's going on and they will come out and he did and now I don't get those messages anymore but your carrier Samsung Google can't help you you have to call whoever provides the wifi in your home if it's out of your house I don't know but if its just in your house for your family call whoever provides wifi whoever gives you your cable on your TV they have to come out and make sure everything is connected right which ours wasn't we had a major error but he fixed it and now my s4 is running just like it was brand new out of the box.

    I have reset the device several times and have also now tried a factory reset... which I really didn't want to do and it still hasn't helped. I have searched forums and google for any sign of this same fault and found nothing. I also can't enable portable Wi-Fi hotspot or Bluetooth... Can someone please advise?

    This fixed it for me with no issues and kept my Root access. Very simple fix.

    My Wi-Fi suddenly stopped working too. The toggle to enable Wi-fi would not work. Removing the battery did the trick! Thank you!

    I've had this same problem, I know how u guys feel so thatswhy I made an account.
    Some took battery out, some smashed it on the table, neither worked for me xD

    Basically all you have to do is root... it's super easy with step by step tutorials everywhere on youtube.
    This was the link i worked with: [RECOVERY][ROOT] Samsung Galaxy S4 Mini LTE (GT-I9195) - xda-developers

    Good luck guys

    PS: dont be to shady about rooting ur device, I know i was, but it's seriously easy and you can un-root it again. Not that im going to but , its possible and also easy...
    Besides if it wasn't for the developers/hackers me and couple hundred others would still have been stuck with this wifi problem. Oh and F*** samsung and it's service. I got this lame wifi problem by updating my device through samsung kies, f**** bull****

    My S4 was fine on 4.2 when I updated via kies to 4.3 same issue wifi switch would not switch on, nothing I did helped. So I flashed 4.2 back onto my S4. 4.3 seems just a little too buggy, even after a revamp. My GS4 19505 is stayin put for now. ....
