How To Fix Google Pixel 3 Keeps Disconnecting From Wi-Fi Network

Problem: Hi, I am trying to connect with my google pixel 3 to my wifi at my house and it constantly connects and then disconnects.  Once it is connected, it states on my phone that it is connected but no internet. This is untrue because I am able to use internet on other devices. Once it stays in this “no internet” state for a min, it resets and attempts to obtain an IP address again and the cycle repeats.  I’ve tried every other troubleshooting step on your and other sites to no success. It is important to note that I live in the mountains and am forced to have Hughesnet satellite internet. Thank you very much for your help.

Solution: Before troubleshooting this particular problem it’s best to make sure that your phone is running on the latest software version. If an update is available then you should download and install it in your phone first.

Connect your phone to a different Wi-Fi network

The first thing that you will need to do in this case is to check if the problem is a connection issue. In case you don’t experience the problem when the phone is connected to a different Wi-fi network then the problem could be caused by a setting in the router. Try restarting your router and the phone. Connect your phone to your home network then check if the issue persists.

Forget the Wi-Fi network

Try removing the Wi-Fi network from your phone then connect to it again.

  • From a Home screen, touch and swipe up to display all apps.
  • Go to  Settings – Network & Internet- Wi-Fi
  • Tap Forget network.
  • Restart the phone
  • Tap Network & internet and then Wi-Fi.
  • Turn on Wi-Fi.
  • Tap a listed network then connect to it.

Reset network settings

If the issue still persists then try resetting the network settings of the phone.

  • From a Home screen, touch and swipe up to display all apps.
  • Go to Settings – System – Advanced
  • Tap Reset options
  • Choose Reset Wi-Fi, mobile & Bluetooth
  • Tap Reset settings.  If prompted, enter the PIN, password or pattern.
  • Tap Reset settings to confirm.

Check if the issue occurs in Safe Mode

There are instances when an app you downloaded can cause this problem. To verify if this is the case you will need to start the phone in Safe Mode as only the pre-installed apps are allowed to run in this mode.

  • From the home screen, press and hold the Power key.
  • Release the Power key, then tap and hold Power off.
  • Read the Reboot to safe mode message and tap OK.
  • The device will power off and restart in safe mode.

If the problem does not occur in this mode then it could be caused by an app you downloaded. Find out what app this is and uninstall it.

Perform a factory reset

One last troubleshooting step to consider is a factory reset. This will revert the phone back to its original factory condition. Make sure to backup your phone data before doing this step.

  • Hold the Power Button Until the Phone Is Off
  • Hold the Power Button and the Volume Down Button for a Few Seconds
  • Wait to See Fastboot Mode on the Screen
  • Let Go of the Buttons
  • Select Recovery Mode
  • Wait for the Android Robot Image to Pop Up
  • Hold Down the Power Button and Then Press the Volume Up Button
  • Select Wipe Data/Factory Reset
  • Select Yes
  • Select Reboot System Now

In case the above steps fails to fix the problem then you will have to bring the phone to a service center and have it checked as this could already be caused by a faulty hardware component.
