Before troubleshooting your Galaxy S8, you want to make sure that your cellphone is the only one having this problem on your WiFi connection. If all devices are having WiFi issues, then you want to contact your internet provider as the issue is not with your Galaxy S8 but most likely with your WiFi connection.

If your Samsung Galaxy S8 is the only device to have issues on your WiFi connection, then here are the steps you can take to fix this issue:

  • Go to Settings > Connections > WiFi.
  • Select your WiFi network and tap Forget.
  • Go to Settings > General Management and tap on Reset.
  • Select Reset network settings.
  • Power off your Samsung Galaxy S8, then power it back on.
  • Go back into Settings > Connections > WiFi and connect to your WiFi network and test.
  • If you’re still unable to connect, reboot your WiFi modem:
    • Unplug your internet modem from its power adapter located usually behind it.
    • Wait 30 seconds.
    • Plug your internet modem back to its power adapter.
    • Wait 5 minutes for the modem to boot completely.
    • Try reconnecting with your Samsung Galaxy S8.
  • If your Galaxy S8 still has issues and is the only device experiencing this problem, make sure it is up to date in Settings > Software update.
  • If your Galaxy S8 is up-to-date, it might be a hardware issue. Test it using other WiFi connections to determine if the problem is with a specific internet connection, or with the Samsung itself.
