This may not be as weird as I feel it is but nonetheless... my Samsung S7 connects to the home wifi but reads "internet may not be available". However, everyone else in the home including my wife's S7 connect fine. I can connect to the wifi network at my work place no problem. The weird part is that when I had my Samsung S6, it had the same issue with connecting but saying "Internet may not be available". Once I transferred my service from the S6 to the S7, the wifi now connects to the S6 with no problem. Any ideas? I've already tried updating the profile and PRL and resetting the modem.
Silly question, have you tried to access the WiFi at say a Starbucks or McDonalds? See if it connects there. If it does, then the WiFi works and it can be narrowed down to a configurations setting most likely.
Okay, I was able to access the wifi configuration settings and the ip address for the router is not the same as the ip address showing on the wifi network on my phone. I then went and checked our old phones that were still able to connect to the wifi and the ip address between network and router there is the same. So I need to figure out how to get the correct ip address to connect with my phone or change it on my phone.
Try the following, see if it works,
This will wipe out and reset ALL network related settings; WiFi, Bluetooth, Mobile Data. So you will have to reconnect to anything you had before.
BTW, the Factory Reset option is in that same location. DO NOT select it as it will wipe your entire phone which you do not want to do as FireGuy mentioned. This is a last resort option which I don't think we are at yet.
It's not just a Network reset like what we did with the dial pad, this one flushes all connection types; Mobile, WiFi and Bluetooth. Not just Mobile like the **72786* which is just mobile.
Despite successfully wiping all connections, the wifi still logged to the same IP address as it was doing prior and giving me the "internet may not be available" notification.
