    Been having this issue for a while now, searched high and low for a fix but sadly can't find one. When ever I'm downloading a torrent or browsing a thread with lots of images the WIFI constantly drops then quickly connects again. It's not the handset as it did it with my last one as well. It can't be my Internet as my other devices have no issue. I have changed the WIF , settings using *#0011# and still no joy.

    Any help is greatly appreciated.

    No please keep here. The issue doesn't only occur when downloading torrents. General Web page browsing also. I have dropped and connected twice typing this post!

    i download torrents on my phone and never had an issue like this with wifi dropping. Try setting a static ip and see if it helps. Also check the option for keep wifi on during sleep and see whats that set to.

    I looked for a solution to this ball ache for months.. I found this mugget that has worked perfectly and not a single issue since

    Before starting the steps below, log onto your router's home page, and go to the page which lists the DNS server's IP addresses. There will be two; primary and secondary. Have this info ready, then start the steps below.

    1: Go into settings>>> WIFI on your S3
    2: Select the particular WIFI network you are connected to by holding your finger on it.
    3: Menu pops up; select "Modify Network Config"
    4: Go to IP settings, select "Static"
    5: A number of fields pop up. You only need to change 2; the last two which are DNS1 and DNS2.
    6: Take the DNS IP addresses from your router page opened earlier and type them into these two fields on your S3.
    7: Select save at the bottom of the screen

    Open your browser and try accessing a web site.....

    Hope this works for others... but I haven't yet fully researched the implications of doing this on other situations, for example logging onto a different WIFI network...
