Andoird device, Wifi cutting out when sleeping

Post by red5 » Thu Jan 11, 2018 4:49 am

Hey folks. I've searched around and even tried out a couple other websites but have not been able to solve my issue. While at home I have it set to Wifi only (Data is turned off). When the screen blackens and the unit goes to sleep it will often lose it's wifi connection (sometimes it keeps it but less often). Then when I turn on the unit it will automatically connect to my router. The only option that I can see that deals with this is "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" and it is checked yes.

Anyone have any ideas? Thank you.

It is a Samsung Luna Pro

Why is this a problem?
And how do you know what's happening? Are you using Fing on another device to see what IP addresses are assigned?

My Android smartphone reconnects to WiFi immediately upon turnon. Does your go blank for a while before reconnecting?

I'm an iPhone user but Googled two phrases and found a number of different options to attempt to solve this. I know that you said that you searched this out but I expect your only success will come from digging into these search results to find the most authoritative answers and trying them out. Good luck.

The searches were:
- android phone dropping wifi while asleep
- samsung luna pro dropping wifi while asleep

On my phone: Settings -> WI-FI -> Advanced -> Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep
Always (checked)
While Charging
Never

How come you uncheck it while charging?

These are the 3 options for this setting. red5 is showing you that their setting is "Keep Wi-Fi on during sleep" to Always. The other options are "While Charging" and "Never". Make certain that yours is set to Always.
