Wi-Fi Network on Galaxy S5

 

 

Reset the router

This is the first option to try when you face a poor Wi-Fi signal on your Galaxy S5. Resetting your router can effectively improve your WIFI signal on your Galaxy s5 but in case the signal is same, move on to the next methods.

Move the router

Make sure there is not much distance between the router and where you stay most of the times. If required, move the router to your room for having a better signal strength. Again, it is important to notice that there should not be any big metallic object in between the phone and the router as it will work as an obstacle and will have an impact on signal strength.

Remove the case

Phone cases are known to hinder the signal especially if they are made of Aluminum. So, if you are using aluminum or any other kind of metallic phone case, remove it and see if it brings any differences in the Wi-Fi signal. Also, those interested in having a phone case can go for the very thin TPU case that does not interfere with the Wi-fi signal at all.

Forget Wi-Fi network

Sometimes forgetting the Wi-Fi network and adding it again can fix up the poor Wi-Fi signal issue in your Galaxy S5. To do so, head towards, Settings > Wi-Fi  and find the network.  To forget it, just press it and tap Forget.

Turn on Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep

This is another workaround to consider for solving the Wi-Fi issue in your Galaxy S5. Wi-Fi may automatically turn off in case you are not using it. Go to advanced Wi-Fi options and turn on “Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep” to prevent this issue.

Wi-Fi connection is overloading

Sometimes, too many devices are connected to the Wi-Fi and that creates a lot  of pressure on the router. It will result in IP conflict. The solution is to set a static IP address for all devices connected to the router.

Flash an appropriate custom ROM

If you checked all these ways, and you still have issues, your Galaxy S5 ROM is not suitable. Another good way to strengthen the WIFI signal on your Samsung Galaxy S5 is to  find a new custom ROM and flash your Galaxy S5 with it.

Download WIFI Booster

For users who are looking for even faster connections for Galaxy S5, there is the option to Download Booster, an innovative Wi-Fi technology that increases the speed of data simultaneously by connecting Wi-Fi and LTE connectivity. Regardless of where the user is located, Galaxy S5 will take care of it and connect to the fastest possible connection.

So, these are the methods  to increase WIFI signal on Samsung Galaxy S5.

  1. After reading about the problems with SD cards for Samsung Galaxy S5, should I or should I not buy one for my phone. This is my very first android phone and I am a novice.

  2. DON’T CLICK FORGET WI-FI NETWORK!!! I tried this, now I am unable to reconnect with my home wi-fi. Password is not working. I went from slow to eating up all my data. Now what do I do?

    1. This happened to me. I had to call my router’s tech support. They had to reset my routers password and fix a problem that was created by this phone action. A 1 hour phonecall got me back on my wi-fi.
