    It's unclear what the OP means until they provide a few more details. As it reads it sounds like they are attempting to download pics and videos from the web, but that shouldn't be much different than Mobile Data. However after doing a bit of searching I found several articles that mention an issue with MMS over WiFi. The advice comes back the same and for most the answer is turning off WiFi Calling. In this age of VoLTE that may not be as easy as it sounds but maybe with this being an S8 it may not be as affected. Either way I would definitely give it a try to see if the issue clears up.

    Here is an article from AC on the subject involving a slightly newer model, the S9... https://forums.androidcentral.com/lg...over-wifi.html

    On the AT&T forums the same answer was given but for an LG device.

    Welcome to Android Central! Are you talking about downloading pics or videos from a website? Does this also happen on other wi-fi networks?
