When a mid-range phone like the Samsung Galaxy A50, or any smartphone for that matter, keeps disconnecting from the WiFi network, you can always expect it to be a minor problem more than anything else. While we’ve seen a lot of network-related problems in the past, most of them are due to firmware issues, glitches or minor issues with network devices.
But there were also cases wherein the problem occurred after the user flashed a custom ROM on the device. This one’s a bit complicated because apparently, it’s a firmware problem and we really don’t know what the issue is without having to look at the changelog of the developer. Most of the time the problem could be due to unfinished modding but the most effective solution is to flash the stock firmware back on the device.
Provided that the integrity of your phone’s firmware is still intact, then this post may be able to help you because I will walk you through in troubleshooting your Galaxy A50 that keeps disconnecting or whose connection keeps dropping. We will try to consider every possibility and rule them out one by one until we can determine the problem and hopefully fix it.

Troubleshooting Galaxy A50 that keeps disconnecting from WiFi network
There are only a few procedures I will give you in this guide as I omitted ones that aren’t really helpful. Based on experience, this is just a minor problem and it should be fixed by one of the procedures below. Here’s what you need to do:
First solution: Force restart your phone that keeps disconnecting
It’s always advisable to do this procedure first as the problem could be due to a minor glitch or firmware issue. After all, it’s pretty easy to do and very effective in fixing minor problems. This could save you from doing all other procedures below. To do this, follow these steps:
- Press and hold the volume down button and don’t release it yet.
- While holding down the volume button, press and hold the power key as well.
- Keep both keys held down together for 15 seconds or until the Galaxy A50 logo shows.
Once the phone has successfully rebooted, try to see if it still keeps disconnecting from WiFi network. If it still does, then move on to the next procedure.
Second solution: Power-cycle your network devices
It’s always possible that the cause of this problem is your network devices. There are times when these things also crash and intermittently stops broadcasting signal. Therefore, it’s very important to refresh the connection between your phone and your network devices by power-cycling them.
- Unplug your modem or router from the wall outlet.
- Leave it without power for a minute or two.
- After that, plug the device back into the wall outlet and wait until it starts to broadcast signal.
- Let your phone reconnect to the network.
Observe your device closely to know if it still keeps disconnecting from the network. If it still does, then try the next solution.
Third solution: Reset network settings
If your Galaxy A50 still keeps disconnecting from the network after the first two procedures, then it’s time to delete all wireless connections in your phone and refresh all wireless services. You can achieve this by resetting the network settings of your phone.
- Swipe down from the top of the screen to pull the notification panel down.
- Touch the Settings icon on the upper-right corner of the screen.
- Once Settings is opened, scroll down to find General management and then tap on it.
- Touch Reset.
- Tap Reset network settings.
- Tap Reset settings.
- Enter your your PIN, password or pattern.
- Tap Reset.
After this, only the mobile data is enabled so turn on WiFi so it will scan for available networks and then let your phone reconnect to your network. If it still keeps disconnecting even after this, then there’s no other choice but to reset your phone.
Fourth solution: Backup your files and reset your phone
A master reset can fix any software issues including this one. However, we are always hesitant to suggest this procedure without exhausting all possible solutions. At this point though, you have no other choice. Therefore, make sure to create a backup of your important files and data. After that, remove your Google and Samsung accounts so that you won’t be locked out. Once everything is in order, follow these steps to reset your phone:
- Turn off the device.
- Press and hold the Volume Up key and the Bixby key, then press and hold the Power key.
- When the Galaxy A50 logo shows, release all three keys.
- Your Galaxy A50 will continue to boot up into the Recovery Mode. Once you see a black screen with blue and yellow texts, proceed to the next step.
- Press the Volume down key several times to highlight ‘wipe data / factory reset’.
- Press Power button to select.
- Press the Volume down key until ‘Yes’ is highlighted.
- Press Power button to select and start the master reset.
- When the master reset is complete, ‘Reboot system now’ is highlighted.
- Press the Power key to restart the device.
