Reset Network Settings

When problems occur after altering or customizing your phone’s default network settings, a common recommendation is to turn Wi-Fi off and then back on. If that doesn’t work, performing the Airplane mode tweak is often the next suggestion. And if all else failed to fix the problem, restoring the phone’s default network configurations could be deemed a final solution. This is when you execute the reset network settings command on your phone.

This reset works by clearing out all custom network settings and restoring network defaults. Any problem tied to an erratic network configuration will therefore be resolved as errant settings get rectified during the reset. After the reset, original network settings and options are restored.

Depicted in this quick walkthrough is the actual process of performing a network settings reset on the Galaxy M51 smartphone.

This reset does not affect any saved data and user information on the phone, so there’s no need to back up files beforehand.

Saved Wi-Fi networks and Bluetooth connections were all deleted from the reset, so you will need to set them up as new.
