    Hi all...just got my S6 edge yesterday and notice some unusual wifi behaviour. Whenever I am on wifi and setting up those new apps which require first login..e.g. Garmin connect,box,etc I always can't login. ..but when I switch to mobile data (4G+)..it works.. thereafter I switch back to wifi and everything works as per normal. Is this a bug or just my set?😣😣

    See what happens if you turn off the router security temporarily.

    I just got the S6 Edge as well and I have noticed wi-fi issues. On my old phone (HTC One M8) I would listen to music at night from google play and it just streams over my wifi with no issues. Last night when using the s6, it kept losing the stream and the music would stop. Finally, I just used my OTA data and no issues. Other wifi issues have included not loading FB, games, etc very fast or well via wifi, but it is fine over my data plan. Again, I had no issues like this with the HTC. Are there other reports of people having wifi issues like this coming in?

    I had WiFi issues with my S6 although my S4 was perfect. I know that this seems odd as this is for network data, I worked out that this fixed my problem:-Settings>Connections>Mobile networks>Mobile Data>Untick Enhanced 4G LTE services

    Are there any noticeable downsides to un-ticking that box? Also ive noticed that on mine its my 5 ghz band that seems to be acting up mostly. It could just be that when I switch to 2.4 it works fine since it has to reconnect.

    Try turning off smart network switch. Wi-Fi-->settings. It worked for me.

    I've read that this is for HD calling that is not available yet on AT&T. I'm hoping that a fix will come out before then but when I tick Enhanced 4G LTE services, apps like Facebook show grey blocks for the images until eventually a picture appears. Google play music takes a number of minutes to load a track. Once I untick the Enhanced 4G LTE all works perfectly. This seems strange as the issues are with Wifi. The mobile network always worked fine. My Wifi didn't work on either band properly. I tried turning off the Smart Network and that didn't help.

    Im on T-Mobile and have been having the same issues, I seem to have found a fix that has been working so far. Try this if turning off smart network switch doesn't work (that didn't work for me)

    1. Open your phone dialer
    2. Enter *#0011#
    3. Select more (top right)
    4. Select WiFi
    5. Turn off WiFi power save mode(enabled by default)
    6. Exit and hopefully your WiFi connectivity issues will no longer be a problem.

    Hope I was able to help some of you out.

    Hi, I am with AT&T and also having the same issue. Actually my wifi works OK while I am in office, but keeps dropping connection frequently while I am at home. I have also tried the method to dial *#0011# to change the wifi Power saving mode, but it didn't work for me. Is there anything relative to my router or what?? Thanks.

    I was having issues with only some networks. Wifi would connect but really slow.. the fix for me was disabling IPv6 on my router. S6 or s6 edge doesn't seem to like it very well. Hope this helps at least one person

    One, I'm skeptical how changing a mobile data setting can improve wifi reliability. Two, though I'm willing to at least try the suggestion, that menu option does not exist on my G6 Edge.

    The options under Settings>Connections>Mobile networks include:

    Data Roaming (on/off)
    Access Point Names
    Network Mode
    Network Operators

    The setting "Enhanced 4G LTE services" is not seen anywhere that I can find.

    For what it's worth none of the suggestions here worked. BUT. the opposite did. I have an Archer C3200 and ENABLING IPv6 as well as turning on the guest network feature did the trick for me. I rebooted my phone to be sure. This was not a problem with my Nexus 5X. Glad this is resolved now.
