    Default Can't undo setting that switches between wifi and network

    I recently changed a setting on my Galaxy 3 that (as I understood it) would switch from wifi to 3g/4g if the wifi signal became too weak or unstable.

    I was prompted to change the setting while using an iffy wifi network. Thinking it sounded beneficial, I changed the setting but now I can't find any way to undo it.

    This new setting, I suppose operates as advertised but the unintended effect is that if I am using an app or game that requires a constant connection, the switch will crash the app.

    Thanks for the help!

    Welcome to the forums!

    You can try this - go to Settings -> More (if using the Tab view) -> Application manager -> press the Menu button -> select 'Reset app preferences'.

    Edit: or if I misunderstood and you're just referring to the setting that switches to mobile data when Wi-Fi is unstable, go to Settings -> Connections (if using the Tab view) -> Wi-Fi -> press the Menu button -> select Advanced -> uncheck 'Auto network switch' (note that mobile data must be turned on in order to access this setting).
