    Like the post above said you can it by going to settings > tap on your wifi (like if you were looking to select your network) > menu then advanced. Option is there.

    Thanks! It helped fix mine as well.

    Will this indeed affect battery life? Have you noticed any difference or is the difference negligible?

    You should be fine. It should actually help to since you be connecting and disconnecting from WiFi constantly every time you go to use your phone.

    Go To Settings, tap WiFi. Tap the menu button. Advanced should be there.
    PLEASE, when asking for help provide as much information as possible. We can't help unless we know what the symptoms are and what you did before they began.

    Another little trick is to disable wifi power saving mode. Open your dialer and input: *#0011# then press the menu key, and choose wifi, then tap the little button that says "on", it'll restart wifi and the power save mode will be disabled. I'm not exactly sure what the power saving mode does, but it doesn't say "preparing network" as often as it used to.

    Your Wi-Fi screen looks different than mine, but you can try pressing the Menu button, select Advanced and look for an option named 'Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep' - set it to 'Always'.
