    My Wifi is switching itself on and off. I can actually watch it happening in the settings. Searches, connects then switches off.

    Thanks

    Welcome to Android Central! Does this happen in Safe Mode as well? https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...g-galaxy-tab-s

    Hello
    The device just won't even switch on wifi at all since I posted the query. I have put it into safe mode and it's no different.
    I have looked in the advanced settings on wifi and it says the IP address is unavailable. This is in safe mode as well. I have tried taking out the SD card - still the same. I have never had any trouble with this tablet at all. I can't remember how long since I bought it but it's years rather than months. Any more suggestions please.

    It may be a hardware issue. The only other software steps I can think of to try would be to wipe the cache partition (https://www.t-mobile.com/support/dev...g-galaxy-tab-s) or to reinstall the firmware (using Smart Switch or Odin).

    If the above doesn't help, then bring it to a repair shop.

    Hello again
    I've wiped the cache partition and unfortunately it's no different. So it looks like it may be hardware issue as you've suggested. Thanks very much for your help - at least I now know what the problem most likely is.

    Might be a issue with your wifi , try rebooting your WiFi router , if it's old might want try another .

    I've tried rebooting the router and it's still the same. I do have a Samsung phone and there's no trouble with the WiFi to that so would that rule out needing a newer router ?
    Thanks

    Might be your tablet running old andriod version, but do you have a router capable of 2.4hz and 5hz?

    Well since yesterday evening the tablet is no longer holding any charge. It gets charged to 100% and about a couple of hours later I get a warning message about the battery being low and it's only 7% and I haven't even tried to use it. I think I'm now going to give up on this tablet and look to buy another one.
    Thanks everyone for trying to help me.
