Galaxy S5 :: Phone Will No Longer Automatically Connect To Saved WiFi Networks?

Aug 22, 2015

My phone will no longer automatically connect to saved WiFi networks. It knows they're there, because if I go to Settings -> WiFi, it shows up in the list as a "saved" one. Tapping on it and selecting "connect" does nothing. I have to turn off the WiFi and turn it back on, and it will then automatically connect.

Additionally, WiFi will not stay off. If I'm some place I don't want it to connect to WiFi, I turn it off so that I don't get messages that networks are available (specifically when I'm driving, it's really annoying to deal with that over Waze).

I've got a Sprint GS5, running stock (not rooted), on 5.0. No updates available for the phone. It does this on every WiFi network I have saved (home, school, and school apartment, among others). I've also tried turning Smart Switch off and on, it makes no difference for either issue.

Galaxy S6 :: How To Edit Saved WiFi Networks

Sep 21, 2015

I can't seem to find my saved WiFi networks when I'm not around them. I believe before there was an option for that in Android. I would like to delete some of the WiFi networks I connected to before. Where can I find the list of remembered WiFi networks on S6 G920F?

Galaxy S6 :: Forget Saved WiFi Networks When They Are Out Of Range On Samsung Devices?

Oct 19, 2015

With all of my previous Android devices, I could go into my wifi setting and get to a list of ALL saved networks, even if they are out of range. From there I could tell the device to forget old/random networks that I don't plan to connect to regularly (e.g. coffee shops, doctor's offices, etc). I haven't been able to find that ability on my Galaxy S6.

When I go to wifi settings, I get a list of all networks in range, and I can tap (or long press) and forget those. But I can't find anyway to get to a list of saved networks that are out of range.

Galaxy S5 :: Unable To Connect To WiFi Networks?

Mar 11, 2015

I have an issue with my Verizon S5. I suddenly have a problem connecting to wifi networks. When I go into the settings>wifi I can see networks no problem but when I select one to connect to there are two options, connect and cancel. For some reason the connect option is grayed out, well actually its light blue. The network I'm trying to connect to is secure and I have the password but even when I enter the password I can't select the connect option. I connected to a hotel network just last night no problem and today I have this.

Motorola Droid Turbo :: Lost All Saved WiFi Networks And Passwords

Mar 24, 2015

I just picked up a Turbo after retiring my Razr M. No matter how many times I did a factory reset on the Razr M, every Wi-Fi that I've ever connected to would reamain listed in the "Manage Networks" tab (including the saved passwords). Thought I read somewhere that Google saves all this information under your gmail account.

Lumia 1020 :: WiFi Not Automatically Connecting To Known Networks

Jan 15, 2014

No problems until recently. I've noticed at Home & Work where I spend 90% of my time the WiFi has not connected (and I end up using my Data Plan). So once I notice it I have to connect manually and its fine. Both networks show up in advanced at "known".

Galaxy S5 :: WiFi Is Not Connecting Automatically - Need To Manually Connect

Apr 14, 2014

I'm a new android user. The problem I'm having is that when my wifi drops out or if I come home the Internet on my phone does not switch back from mobile data to wifi. I'm with bigpond and I have put the password into my phone and I don't need to put the password in each time but when I go to wifi settings it says sign in required and I press connect and the wifi turns on. As soon as I come home or the Internet drops out it switched back to 3G and doesn't connect back to wifi unless I do what I mentioned above.

The advanced setting on the wifi are
Ip settings DHCP
Signal strength- very strong
Security wpa2 psk

I also have the smart network switch toggled to off. I have reset my telstra router.

I've wasted a lot of my mobile data this week before I realised that when I left the house or the net dropped out my phone was staying on 3G and not switching back to wifi the way my iPhone and every other phone I've owned did.

Galaxy S6 :: How To Remove Saved WiFi From Other Locations On Samsung Phone

Aug 17, 2015

I have a Samsung Galaxy S6. Recently I went for a overseas trip and connected to wifi in hotel over there. After I came back, I found there is no way to forget the saved wifi as I could not find it in my Wifi network list. There is a menu icon to see Saved Wifi when goes to Wifi Setting for the other mobile phone with Android Lollipop from other manufacturer, but that icon is missing from Samsung Galaxy S6. Is there any other way for me to forget those wifi networks saved in other place?

IPhone :: What's Causing My 4s Not Connect To Some Wifi Networks

May 9, 2012

Sometimes a wifi network I use everyday won't connect to my iPhone. It tries to connect but the circle keeps circulating next to the network name in settings under wifi. It did this twice, once a couple days ago for a few hours and once yesterday again before I left work. When I got to work in the morning it connected quick no issues. Also today I walked to a Mercedes dealership doing my work runs and when I got there I checked the phone and again the circle kept circulating and never connected. There is no issue of being too far from the signal so I'm not sure if this may be the iPhone issue or maybe by coincidence it being a network issue for both places I mentioned it happening.

iPhone 4S, iOS 5.1

Galaxy S5 :: Not Remember Old WiFi Networks

Jan 7, 2015

I have got a new S5 (coming from LG G2) and I'm experiencing a problem I've never seen before.

Earlier changes of phones has given me the opportunity to access wifi networks (SSID) I've used before. Now I have to add (connect and reenter key) all networks all over again.

Is there a fix that can bring back my "old" networks?

Galaxy S5 :: WiFi Not Scanning Any Networks When It Is Turned On?

Mar 11, 2015

2 weeks ago my wifi wasn't even turning on, no matter what i tried, the wifi button was always on off.

Then today it just randomly worked and I was able to turn on my wifi, it allowed me to use my wifi network for 5 min.

I decided to turn the wifi off then on again, and now it doesn't scan for networks. So even though my wifi is on, there are no list of networks I can choose to join.

edit: Smart network switch is always off, because mobile data is always disabled for me, Also i cannot find reply button.

Galaxy S5 :: Why Does Phone Connect To WiFi But Gets No Internet

Feb 9, 2015

I both have Galaxy S5's, each have tablets & my son has iPad, also have a laptop that all connect to WIFI to internet no problem - EXCEPT MY GALAXY S5. I don't understand what is going on. I have gone into my router, can see the phone there in the list of connected devices. Checked to see if the phone was blockedIt seems that my wifi on my phone is connecting to the router, then off, then on, then off. Sometimes it connects for like 10 seconds, then I can open a page, then it wont go again.

Is there a way I can go into my application manager on the phone & force stop the wifi or delete the cache on the wifi? it is clear that the issue is on the S5's end.
