Deal with Wi-Fi Connecting Issue on Samsung Galaxy S7 – No device is perfect and Samsung Galaxy S7 is not perfect at all. One issue that plagues some user is in its Wi-Fi connection.
Sometimes the Wi-Fi won’t connect or drop the connection out of nowhere. If that is the problem that you are dealing right now, then there are a couple of things to try.
First thing that you can look at is the bluetooth connection. Some people find that turning OFF bluetooth features able to solve this problem. It is also worth to try to switch Wi-Fi connection to a 5 GHz, because somehow the bluetooth connection only affect Wi-Fi connection that work on 2.4 GHz.
Refreshing the network is also worth to try. Simply go to Settings > Wi-Fi and find the troubled network. Choose to forget this network and then try to set new connection with this network once again.
You also can try to turn OFF and ON the Wi-Fi feature in your phone either by toggle on the feature setting or simply restart or reboot the phone.

You also need to make sure that MAC filtering is not active on your device. Check this on in Settings > About device > Status and find it under Wi-Fi MAC address. Don’t forget to turn OFF “Smart Network Switch” on Wi-Fi settings to support the whole effort.
If it still not working, then you can try to wipe cache partition as it work on other issues as well. For the last resort, you can always do factory reset, but always make sure that you already back up the entire data in your phone before you do this.
