    Finally solved this , go into your router settings and make sure all the DNS server setting numbers are in place , then forget the network on your phone , reconnect in the WiFi settings on your phone change it to static and also check the DNS server numbers are there . No more dropping the connection when you aren't using it

    I had this issue occur on my S7 yesterday. I had just enabled ipv6 on my home network but had made no other changes to my phone nor access point. Disabled ipv6 and the issue went away but when I turn it on I have wifi disconnect at regularly. Have replicated this several times as I was very suprised that this was the reason.

    After months of searching, romming (multiple roms), rooting, and using suggestions found on this forum and others I finally solved my issue. On the router for the WiFi there was a "WMM" toggle, which is like a QoS for media streaming. I disabled that and my S7 is solid with no drops. Ipv6 works, ipv4, etc.

    This was a pain to find and could be a failure of the router firmware, but none-the-less it worked.

    I have the same problem right now and I don't think it's the s7's that's having a problem because the phone works on other wifi's.
    This was my problem too. I only get disconnected from home wi-fi. So, tried logging in as guest instead of main account and I'm no longer getting disconnected. None of the other suggestions on this forum worked for me.
