The Galaxy S23 Wi-Fi connection issue has an easy temporary solution, and here’s how it works

The Galaxy S23 series, as a whole, is pretty awesome. All three models serve their purpose very well, with performance and battery life two of the biggest advantages thanks to the new Snapdragon 8 Gen 2 processor, even in the smallest model.

The Galaxy S23 also ships pretty stable on the software side of things from day one, but everyone has a unique experience with their device. And for some Galaxy S23 owners — especially those who got the Galaxy S23 Ultra — there was one issue that was a major source of frustration, as we’ve outlined before.

This issue is related to Wi-Fi connection. To be more specific, it’s about those who have Wi-Fi 6-enabled routers at home and therefore use a Wi-Fi 6 connection. To reiterate what we said above, the Galaxy S23 Ultra seems to suffer the most from this. The problem is that the phone is constantly switching to mobile data even when the Wi-Fi connection is active and working fine on other devices.

The problem doesn’t seem to be present on all units, but those who own the new and shiny Galaxy S23, S23+, or S23 Ultra phones He is Having to face it being tiring having to quickly switch Wi-Fi on or off every time the phone switches to mobile data can get frustrating.

Samsung is said to be working on a proper fix, but until then, there appears to be only one temporary “permanent” solution for now. And this fix is ​​simple, at least until Samsung gets rid of the problem permanently (maybe the March update it received this week will fix it, but that update isn’t widely available yet): just go to your Wi-Fi router setup if it supports Wi-Fi 6 and disable Wi-Fi 6.

Asus, for example, has it inside Wireless List (this may be called WLAN on some routers instead of Wireless) in file Advanced Settings op and has a toggle next to an option called “802.11ax/WiFi 6″ mode.

again so samsung To fix this problem, the best solution is just to disable Wi-Fi 6 in your router settings and stick to the good old 2.4GHz or 5GHz bands to connect your Galaxy S23 Ultra.
