Note 4 Wi-Fi Stopped Working
Problem: Hi – All of a sudden my Samsung Galaxy Note 4 Edge WiFI stopped working. WiFi scan is able to identify the Open WiFi Networks, but it’s showing Not in range against all of them – even for the WiFi Network set up at my home. I did a factory reset, but still it’s not working. Please help.
Solution: When you did a factory reset did you try to connect your phone to multiple Wi-Fi networks? Id your phone doesn’t connect to any Wi-Fi network then this could already be a hardware related issue. I recommend that you bring your phone to a service center and have it checked.
