Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ Plus are experiencing a WiFi connection problem that automatically switches to the Internet. The main reason why the WiFi connection fails is due to a weak WiFi signal. This means that the Galaxy S20 cannot connect to the Internet. We can help you solve this problem if the WiFi signal is weak and the connection stops.
The Galaxy S20 WiFi connection switches from WiFi to data using the WLAN to Mobile Data Connection option. This option can be activated in the Android Settings of the Samsung Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ Plus. This setting is known as “Smart network switch”. It was created on the Samsung Galaxy S20 to automatically switch between Wi Fi and mobile networks such LTE to maintain a stable network connection. This WiFi setting can be modified to solve the Galaxy S20 WiFi issue.
This is how to disable the Samsung Galaxy S20 smart network switch and fix the WiFi issue:
- Turn on your Galaxy S20 and Galaxy S20+ smartphones
- Allow the Samsung Galaxy S20 to connect to the internet via mobile data.
- Once the mobile data connection has been enabled, navigate to Menu -> Settings->Wireless
- The option “Smart network switch” will be located at the top of the page.
- This option can be unchecked to get a less stable wireless connection for your Samsung Galaxy S20 while the router is still up.
- Your Samsung Galaxy S20 won’t automatically switch between Wi Fi and mobile Internet.
The above steps will usually solve the WiFi issue. If the Galaxy S20 WiFi connection is terminated, the phone will automatically switch to the Internet. A “wipe cache partition”, however, should resolve the WiF problem. This will not delete any data from your Samsung Galaxy S20. All data, including photos, videos and messages, are safe and not deleted. You can use the Android recovery mode to perform the “Wipe cache partition” function.
