  1. This solution worked for me! Not sure why my home internet got blocked after years of it working fine .. but THANK YOU! 🙂

  2. On my galaxy s7 I turned off the location and restarted my phone, Wi-Fi came back after almost a week of trying. It was the location all along for some reason.

    • Try turning off the location and restart your phone, I have a s7 edge and after a week of trying to figure out the problem I did just that and my WiFi came back on but if I turn on the location again I lose my WiFi

    • Hey Miranda,
      I just started to have this problem yesterday and it was driving me crazy. I reset all my settings including my WiFi modem and still nothing. What fixed my problem was my Network got automatically blocked. I’m a Verizon customer so there’s an app that comes automatically installed on their phones called “Security and Privacy” (The app icon is a padlock) it checks your phone for viruses and does automatic scans. If you have that app click on it and click on the “Wi-Fi Security” option. Once you click on that click on “Manage Wi-Fi Networks”. There you’ll be about to see if your network was automatically blocked. If it was blocked just select your network and hit “Remove” to remove it from your blocked list. I ended up having two networks blocked for some reason so I unblocked them both and now my phone stays connected. Hope this helped. God bless

  3. I have a rca tablet. It won’t stay connected to internet drifts in and out. Your advice will not work. Because my wifi setting does not have the settings you show. It only shows the different Wi-Fi’s in my area.

  4. I did all the things recommended and then downloaded “Wifi Manager” and went to quick fix. Took about 2 minutes and its been working since. ?

  5. I’m having the same problem. It might connect for a moment and then disconnects immediately. Anyone have another solution?

    • its because of your internets ping, try resetting your box or calling your provider , most smartphones wont stay connected if the ping is going up and down.

  6. That solution isn’t working. Little message flashes on that I’m connected, then I’m not connected. It just goes back and forth. Connected, not connected. It’s annoying!!!

  7. I have the same problem as you. I feel as of I have tried everything I have even factory reset my phone still won’t work. I called my phone provider and they were no help at all. Have you found another solution?

  8. Didn’t work for me. I have a Lenovo A 5500 tablet. Recently I started having a WiFi issue. My tablet will connect to WiFi signals and then nothing – it shows as being Connected but the network connection is “lost” (no data flow). When I disconnect and try to reconnect, I get the message “Authentication Problem” – this happens on any router. The router at home users WPA encryption. I’m running Android 4.4.2. My Android phone has no problems connecting to any of the same networks.
