Galaxy S24 Ultra Can’t Connect to Wi-Fi? Here’s How to Fix It

Samsung Electronic’s recent flagship launch, the Galaxy S24 Ultra, has been facing Wi-Fi connection issues. Being a popular brand in the Smartphone industry, it is a big disappointment for a Samsung Phone user to have trouble connecting to Wi-Fi. The previous flagship also had a similar issue with the Wi-Fi 6 and 6E bandwidth. Although S24 Ultra supports Wi-Fi 7, users still face issues connecting the standard 6GHz band normally.

The report shared by users on the community forum shows that the issue is mostly with the Ultra variant. However, the S24 and S24 plus variants are also listed in the thread having the issue. So far, Samsung has not addressed the issue properly. However, Samsung acknowledged the problem and is working on a patch. Meanwhile, it would be best if you tried the workarounds to resolve the issue temporarily.

Galaxy S24 Wifi Keeps Disconnecting

Why is My S24 facing Wi-Fi disconnection?

The Galaxy S24 users reported a Wi-Fi connection issue. Sometimes, the Wi-Fi signal keeps dropping, whereas others have issues connecting the network. Meanwhile, some others get randomly disconnected from the Wi-Fi.

The reason behind the disconnection or dropping can be pinpointed by continuously monitoring the device. You could blame your device, Router, or service provider for such an issue. In addition, any faulty application installed on your device or wrong settings might be the reason.

As experience shared on the internet by the users, it can be concluded the issue is within the device somehow. Other connected devices might have faced the issue if it is to be the Router or service provider. It’s only S24, which keeps disconnecting! Moreover, users also suggest that the unstable Wi-Fi connection is due to app-specific. For example, some users have replied in the forum for apps like Google Chrome, and Gmail works fine. But when users switch to other apps like Twitter, the banking app network keeps changing to LTE and finally disconnects even though Twitter works fine when opened in Chrome browser.

Galaxy S24 also supports the Wi-Fi 7. Since Wi-Fi 7 is at an early stage and S24 was launched a while ago, there might be software bugs or glitches. As from the previous issue with the S23 users, it is mostly the Wi-Fi 6 users facing the issue connecting to Wi-Fi; later, the issue was addressed in updates. Following a similar trend, the Wi-Fi 7 router users have been having this issue recently.

Samsung designed the S24 series to support AI-oriented features, again raising the question of whether Galaxy AI is somehow behind the disconnection issue. As AI optimizes the battery from unwanted usages, it could be possible that it hinders connecting to Wi-Fi. Moreover, Wi-Fi 7 has the TWT feature to simultaneously maintain battery optimization and network efficiency.

Fix 6: Run your device on Safe Mode

Running your device on safe mode lets you learn if any third-party app is behind the Wi-Fi disconnection issue. In Safe mode, your phone will only use the default apps, and all the third-party apps will be disabled.

Use your phone, which is normally connected to Wi-Fi. If everything is working fine, it indicates that the third-party app is behind the issue. Remember your last installed app before the issue and uninstall it. If the issue remains in safe mode, it’s, unfortunately, a phone issue.

To Exit from Safe Mode, restart your device.

Fix 7: Enable Wi-Fi Safe Mode

Wi-Fi Safe mode could be an excellent way to check if the issue is resolved. With a high frequency (like 5 GHz) bandwidth, you might enjoy high speed, but there is a risk of low signal strength. But by downgrading the band to 2.5 GHz, you can enjoy good signal strength with standard speed. Follow the steps below to enable Wi-Fi safe mode-

  • Go to Settings >> Software information.
  • Enable the Developer option (Click on the Build number several times until the developer option is enabled)
  • Find the Wi-Fi Safe Mode in the developer option
  • Enable it

It is unfortunate to have a Wi-Fi disconnection issue with the Galaxy S24. While the exact root cause remains unknown, it appears to stem from either software bugs, hardware incompatibilities, or conflicts with AI-powered optimization features.

Hopefully, it helped you resolve the issue, and if it does, do share the post. More fixes will be added based on the user’s experience. Therefore, stay tuned with Saminsider!
