    Default Samsung S3 WiFi turning off and on continuously- how do I stop it.. HELP !!

    Not sure I am in the correct area,if not please let me know where I should look for help. I have the Samsung S3 on Verizon network. Today my wifi at home turns it self off and on constantly. It will connect, less than 15 seconds later it turns off, scans, reconnects, disconnects, scans, reconnects and does this continuously. Thank you for any help that can be given. This is driving me crazy and I have read about this dialer thing and then a menu to disconnect powersaving on wifi, but I don't know how to get there. Thank you

    Does the wifi actually turn itself fully off or does it just disconnect and reconnect every 15 seconds? If it does the later then it sounds like something is wrong with the WiFi signal since I had the same problem in my house. Swapped the wireless router and issue fixed. Here are some troubleshooting steps you can take:

    1. Restart device (I know seems simple)
    2. Delete all known wifi connections and reconnect
    3. Turn off auto-notify
    4. Battery Pull
    5. All else fails, do a factory reset or go to Verizon

    It sounds to me like your S3 is hosed. I haven't seen another post like this in the S3 forums, but the exact same thing happened to me on my HTC Thunderbolt.

    Had the same issue this week, and was driving me crazy. Ended up resetting my router and the problem was solved. Turns out my son's RAZR Maxx was doing the same thing. Try that and see if it fixes it. Haven't had a problem since.

    Settings -> Wi-Fi (press on the text to the left of the toggle switch), press the Menu button -> Advanced -> Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep.
