My S7 edge won't stay connected to my home WiFi, even though I have "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" set to "always". When I reconnect to my home wifi, it says underneath the router name "internet not available".

Any ideas why it won't stay connected? It stays connected to my work wifi...

Yes. Those were the first things I tried. Interestingly enough, my phone connects to and stays connected to the 5 GHz channel. =/

Anything interfering with your 2.4GHz channel - cordless phones, microwave, Bluetooth, etc.? Do other devices use the 2.4 without a problem?

Good idea. Use an app like Wi-fi Analyzer to see if there is a lot of other traffic on the channel that your router is using. If it's really congested, you can log into the router's settings using your computer's browser and change the channel manually.
