  1. Galaxy S6 Did everything above plus cleared phone cache, soft re-boot and still the phone loses the Wi-Fi connection. The Wi-Fi symbol is active and the arrows working but no program can connect. On the phone I have to turn Wi-Fi off then on to re-establish the connection. Application will connect and I can use it. After I am done and try to use another application the cycle starts over again. Have the phone since the end of April and this just started a week or so ago. Taking it back to Verizon.

  2. Just did the following and all appears to be working fine. Crossing my fingers. **I had the same issue and solved it by changing my routers security from WPA2/Mixed Mode to WPA2 Personal. Since this change, it works fine on both 2.4 ghz and 5 ghz.
