How To Fix Galaxy Tab S7 WiFi Issues

This post will guide you on how to troubleshoot and fix Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 WiFi issues that occur every now and then. Such problems may be a sign of a serious hardware issue but most of the time, they’re pretty minor and you can fix them on your own.

A powerful device like the Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 shouldn’t have problems connecting to the Internet through a Wi-Fi network or other connections. However, no electronic device is perfect so you can always expect that issues will occur every now and then.

Among the most common problems any tablet owners may encounter are network-related. While these issues are common, they’re not necessarily hard to fix. But the thing is that just because your Galaxy Tab S7 has some Wi-Fi issues doesn’t mean it’s defective.

In this post, we will guide you on how to fix Wi-Fi issues on your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7. We will try to look into all possibilities and rule them out one after another until we can determine the reason why your device is having such issues. Once we knew the cause or the factors as to why the issues occur, that’s when we can try doing troubleshooting procedures that can potentially fix them.

Fixing Galaxy Tab S7 Wi-Fi Issues

The course of our troubleshooting will be to see if the problem is just due to a pretty minor issue on your phone, and then move on to troubleshooting the network device. Most of the time, basic troubleshooting procedures are enough to fix network issues. With that being said, here’s what you need to do:

Restart your router and your tablet

The first thing that you need to do when it comes to fixing network-related issues is to reboot your network device as well as force restart your tablet itself. Doing so will refresh your devices’ memories and if the problem isn’t really that serious, most of the time, this will take care of it.

Sometimes your connection needs to be refreshed and a simple router restart is enough to take care of that. Then there are instances wherein some services on your tablet just stop working that you need to reload everything for them to work perfectly again. The forced restart will always take care of that as well. So here’s what you need to do:

  1. Unplug the power cord of your router from the wall outlet or simply disconnect it from the main unit.
  2. Leave it without power for a minute or two.
  3. While waiting, press and hold the Volume Down button and the Power key at the same time for 10 seconds. This will trigger the tablet to power off and turn back up.
  4. When the logo shows, release both keys and just wait until your Galaxy Tab S7 finishes the reboot.

Once the reboot is finished, reconnect your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 to the same network and see if the Wi-Fi issues you were having are fixed.

Re-establish the connection between devices

If the simple refreshing of the router and the tablet doesn’t fix the problem, then it’s time you re-established the connection between them. Such a procedure is very simple. All you need is basically delete the current connection and then let your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 reconnect to it. Here’s how it’s done:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and tap the gear icon.
  2. Tap Connections.
  3. Tap Wi-Fi.
  4. Tap the gear icon next to the network your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is connected to.
  5. Tap Forget at the lower-right corner of the screen. This will delete the current connection.
  6. Allow your tablet to scan the area and once it detects the network, tap on it and enter the password.

Once your Galaxy Tab S7 is already connected to the WiFi network, try to see if the problem with Wi-Fi connection is fixed.

Reset the Network Settings

After doing the first two procedures and your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 is still having some WiFi issues, then what you have to do next is reset the network services of your device. There are times when some of the wireless services just stop working and result in a problem like this. You need to reload or refresh them so that they will work perfectly again and the best way to do that is to reset the network settings. Here’s how:

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and then tap the gear icon.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to find General management and then tap on it.
  3. Tap Reset. This will show you the different types of reset you can do on your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7.
  4. Tap Reset Network Settings.
  5. If prompted, enter your security lock.
  6. After that, tap Reset Network Settings at the bottom of the screen.

Once the network reset is done, let your Samsung Galaxy device connect to the same network again to see if the problem is fixed. If it does connect properly and can browse the web without a problem, the it must have been due to minor issues with the services.

Factory reset your Galaxy Tab S7

The first three solutions are often enough to fix WiFi problems but if your Samsung Galaxy device is still having the same issue after doing every single one of them, then it’s time to make use of the factory reset. But before anything else, make sure to create a copy of your important files and data since they will be deleted during the process. Once you’ve finished making a backup, then you’re ready to reset your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7.

  1. Swipe down from the top of the screen and then tap the gear icon.
  2. Scroll down to the bottom of the screen to find General management and then tap on it.
  3. Tap Reset. This will show you the different types of reset you can do on your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7.
  4. Tap Factory data reset and then scroll down to the bottom of the screen.
  5. Tap the Reset button and enter your security lock.
  6. Tap Delete all and then enter your Google ID password and hit OK.

Once the reset is done, set up your Samsung Galaxy Tab S7 as a new device.
