    Go into mobile network settings disable "Connection Optimizer" & problem will be solved
    Hi there
    I also have the problem of the wifi turning itself on all the time. Have done as you say and gone to mobile networks on my S3 but don't have the connection optimizer option the only options I have are
    Mobile data, data roaming, access point names, network mode or network operators - any suggestions

    go to Settings BUT before going into WIFI, turn it on, then click WIFI - Menu (botton on the left) - Advanced - The "Network notificacion" box will be selected, click on it to disable it.

    My problem was the same, my phone kept doing the same, and everytime and went into settings - wifi - advanced, the wifi was off and the box was unchecked. BUT once I did the proces with the WIFI on..... magic.... the box was actually checked!!!! I disablet it and hasn't happen ever since.

    "my sony xperia j keeps doing it turns its self on when there is no wifi about and blocks my net signal all together how can i fix this please"

    Hmm... since this thread is in the "Samsung Android Phones" forum, I'm guessing that a good start might be to go to the correct forum for your phone. Just sayin'...

    My HTC one sv through boost mobile started doing this this week when it updated to jelly bean 4.1. I think a lot of people are having trouble finding the connection optimizer because its not under WiFi for most people. Went into Settings>Mobile Data, which then brings you to a Mobile network settings>Automatic Connections>Connection Optimizer. Uncheck and problem solved. Hope this helps someone.

    On Samsung Galaxy S4 (Sprint): Drag down the window shade, tap and hold wi-fi, tap "smart mode", toggle it off.

    I had this same problem, and this post is where I found the answer, searching for "android wi-fi keeps coming on", thanks.

    To find the "Connections Optimizer" on the Note 3 you go to Settings-under connections-go down to more network-Mobile network. From there you should see the setting you are looking for. Hope this helps.

    On my Verizon Galaxy 3 my Wi-Fi just started to connect itself the last couple days. I looked and my auto connect is still unchecked, yet it still connects immediately after turning it off.

    I turned my wifi off, turned off smart search, and turned off the option to have wifi on while its in "sleep mode" but the having wifi on during sleep keeps switching itself back to always and I can't get it to stay off, how do i stop it from resetting back to "always on"?

    Ive tried all those that pertained to my galaxy 2 none worked but I did find a solution that I thought I might share incase anyone else had my problem. I went to settings and under location services I made sure all of them were unchecked. Volia no wifi turning on by itself while mobile data services were on!

    First things first... this phone is incredible, glad I spent the money. BUT my wifi keeps turning itself on after I manually turn it off in the notification shade. I've messed with different settings "wifi" but can't figure it out. Anybody got an idea as to keep it off until I want it back on?

    I had the same issue with my device (Note 3). T-Mobile doesn't seem to have

    a "Connection Optimizer" feature in its line of phones. In T-mo's

    case the feature that needs to be disabled is the "Wi-Fi Manager".

    To disable this feature you need to do the following:

    Access your T-Mobile account (for me I just press on the "T-Mobile

    My Account" App).

    Press the menu button on your device, then select "Options".

    Under "Notifications" uncheck the box marked "Display Wi-Fi

    Manager notifications".

    Under "Connection Assistant" select "Open Wi-Fi manager".

    Uncheck the box for "Manage Wi-Fi Connections".

    That's it...

    I talked to T-mobile tech support about an unrelated issue and

    offhandedly mentioned this problem. The rep informed me that this

    was a known issue and stated that this issue was being addressed.

    In the mean time disabling the "Wi-Fi Manager" is a temporary fix

    to address this problem. Here is the shorthand way to disable the

    Wi-Fi manager:

    T-Mobile My Account -> Menu -> Options -> "Display Wi-Fi Manager

    Notifications" (Uncheck) -> "Open Wi-Fi Manager" (under

    "Connection Assistant") -> (Uncheck) "Manage Wi-Fi Connections".

    I have an unlocked AT&T GS4 that I use on ST. Just recently, i guess since last week, I've started having this issue: the wi-fi turns on by itself, continually! I've turned it off every little while throughout the day & night. This is odd bc it even does it when I'm at home, I barely even have service at home.
    So, now I have went into my wi-fi advanced settings & turned off everything & will restart my phone. We will see how that works. What a pain!

    I went into security and there was a box that said send security reports to samsung via wifi. I unchecked it. Fingers crossed that works as nothing else did.

    Turning off the Optimizer does NOT solve the problem. Mine is off and Wifi still turns itself on all day. It's annoying as hell.
