    All W-Fi rescans like that. It's nothing to be concerned about.

    Now the things you should make sure you have unchecked in wifi for best functioning and least battery consumption (and I'm not certain you have the same settings since i'm on a Galaxy Note 3) but in Advanced settings, make sure Always allow scanning is unchecked and Auto network switch is unchecked.

    I have a Samsung Galaxy tablet. I could not find "advanced settings" for the wifi or for anything else. Do you have any other suggestions?
