    Default Galaxy s5 keeps disconnecting from WiFi?

    My galaxy s5 is disconnecting from my wife though I have all the settings for that type of thing off.. It disconnects and reconnects the moment it disconnects... What could be the issue?

    What does the status below the Network name say?

    that means you are connecting to a faulty access point. Most home routers (from my experience) go bad after a few years of use. That is a sign that you need to replace it. As a test, you can powercycle the router you are connecting to. If it'll let you connect w/o drops then you'll be good for a day or two before you need to reset it again. If it continues to disconnect, i'd test connecting to a public connection to see if you experience the same issue, if you do then the wifi radio in your handset is probably the culprit.

    It only does it to my phone though, not my laptop or anything

    yeah, sounds like the radio on your phone might be bad. Otherwise, I've seen it when certain devices don't like certain routers. Rare, but I've seen it.

    I'd hope not or this will be my second time returning a phone. Wish I knew that store I bought it from wasn't corporate cause it seems like all his phones are ****ed up... Big *** sprint sign and it isn't even truly sprint..is there a way to attempt to fix this issue?

    That, I can't answer for you. Don't give up yet though, test it on another wifi access point and see if you still get the disconnects.

    In your settings there's a setting to change it. It disconnects when the wifi is unstable and uses the mobile network for faster speeds.

    I had the same issue. I had foxfi installed and it was sucking up battery as well. I uninstalled foxfi and restarted the phone. It works fine now.
