This is probably the simplest thing you can do that can actually fix the issue. Navigate to Settings, find Wi-Fi and turn it off. Leave it off for a minute or two and turn it back on.
Toggle Airplane mode
Another simple and effective thing is toggling the Airplane mode. Go to Settings, find Airplane mode and turn it on. Leave it on for a couple of seconds or so, and turn it back off.
Restart your device
Whenever you are experiencing some sort of issue with your device, keep in mind that a restart can help. It may fix some minor bugs and issues, so it is always a good idea. Turn your phone off and back on and see if it makes a difference.
Restart your modem and router
Sometimes, the issue is not on the phone but in the modem or router. So, it is advisable to restart them. Turn them off and back on.
Forget Wi-Fi networks
Here is another thing for you to try. What you need to do here is forget the wi-fi networks you have used before and then connect all over again. Here is how to do that:
- Head over to Settings
- Go to Network & Internet
- Tap Wi-Fi
- Tap on the network you have been previously connected to
- Tap forget.
Once this is done, restart your device. When the phone powers on, head to the Wi-Fi section and look for your network. Enter the password if required and try to connect all over again.
Reset network settings
If none of the previous solutions didn’t make a change, you can reset network settings. You need to keep in mind that this option restores all the network settings to factory defaults. It also means that you will have to connect your phone with your Bluetooth devices all over again and you will also have to connect to Wi-Fi networks. Here is how to reset network settings on your LG G7 ThinQ:
- Go to Settings
- Tap General
- Tap Restart & Reset
- Now tap Network Settings Reset
- Tap Reset Settings
- Again tap Reset Settings
- You will see the message saying “Network settings have been reset”
- The message will indicate the resetting of network settings is completed.
When nothing seems to be working, you have the option to factory reset your device. If you have never done it before, you need to keep in mind that creating a backup is the first thing you should do. Here is why. A factory reset deletes everything you have on your device, such as apps, photos, videos, music, etc. In addition, it also restores all the settings to factory defaults. So, create a backup first. When you are done, follow the steps below:
- From the Home screen, go to Settings > General
- Tap Restart & Reset
- Now tap Factory data reset
- Tap Reset phone > Delete All
- Finally, tap Reset.
