    So I think I have my first bug/fault.

    The WiFi appears to be dropping and reconnecting momentarily. When browsing I barely notice but I do see the "toast" pop up with the WiFi name and connected occasionally.

    However I've started playing Agar.IO and I keep getting lost connection messages and get booted out (annoying when I'm massive!). Has anyone else seen this or know a possible solution? Thanks.

    I have seen much better signal strength on my S7e, on both 2.4 and 5Gz than my previous Galaxy. No dropping at all. Do you have a wifi analyzer app on your phone?

    I've seen the same thing occur, even when the wifi signal is strong. It's not frequent, but it's happened several times today.

    Yeah, Smart WiFi is off, and WiFi is also set to always on.
    I'll forget the network and start again.
    I had a faulty S6 Edge that did this but cell radios were the priority on that one so I didn't really take note...

    Is there a particular recommendation for a WiFi analyzer?

    Netgear has a very good one in the Play store. I also use Wifi Analyzer.

    Everyone who's reporting WiFi issues: can you please include the make and model of your WiFi router as well? WiFi incompatibilities are just as often caused by the AP.

    The B&B we stayed in a few weeks back had one of those - I had to help the owner reboot it several times because it kept crashing. But when it worked, it was fast :-) Didn't have a Samsung phone then though.

    Hasn't happened again (that I've noticed) since I posted, but will keep an eye on it and report back.

    Mine continues to drop. Did it on a friend's router too (different model BT) so looks like a call to Samsung next week.

    No drops for me so far. It's been running strong. Do you notice drops on other networks?

    Yeah, like I said it appeared to disconnect at a friend's house this weekend. Will try the force IPV4 thing...

    Read your post, turned on bluetooth on the phone and both 2.4 and 5Gz are still humming along the same. Signal strength is still excellent on both (my router is in the basement) and I can see no speed difference with internet access.

    Well I use HTC M7 and D-Link DIR 816 router and I have the same problem, it happens everyday. May or may not be related to s7e

    I'm assuming mine drops intermittently as well, as I will get new notifications that I'm connected to WiFi from time to time.

    Same here. Very frustrating. Smart switch off, forced stop on blue tooth share, restarted router. Still momentarily drops signal sometimes for a couple of seconds; Sometimes I have to force it to re connect. I have a BT hub 3.
    How do I change to ipv4 I can't find it in the admin pages of my router
