    So for the first few months my S5 auto connected to my home WIFI. Now it does not, I looked into setting and saw something that has its box checked called passport certified something something.....saying something to the affect of always connect to certified wifi spots.....how the heck do I let my phone know my wifi is a wifi I want it to ALWAYS connect to. I am having to manually do it when I get home....

    When you say that you have to manually connect, are you going into wifi and tapping your home wifi to force the connection or are you having to re-enter your wifi credentials each time? If your phone is retaining the credentials and just not connecting try this - when you are connected to your home wifi, press and hold on your home wifi in the list of connections, then select forget network, select it again to reconnect and re-enter your credentials. That will usually clear it up and it should start connecting automatically.

    I'm just having to click to the wifi icon. When I get up in the morning I am on my home wifi, when I get to my office, it auto connects to my office wifi, when I get home.....my wifi icon isn't lit, it's dim, I have to click it. Once I do then it's just a second or two and I am on my home wifi. It's just a pain cause I don't always remember ya know...

    Delete your home WiFi account from the S5.

    Then reconnect to it and provide the password again.

    That should take care of it.

    Will try. Should I also disengage the option that allows it to choose Wifi or LTE to as it says keep a stable connection?
