    Ever since I got updated to Nougat, my phone will not connect to wifi until i unlock the phone. For instance, if i am home and i leave, when i come back it doesnt connect. there have been times it has set for a hour and wont connect until i open the phone up. i have tried everything. reset network connections, forgot networks, i have done a factory reset multiple times. Ive started in safe mode. It especially causes a problem at work when the wifi drops out, it wont reconnect until i actually unlock the phone causing me to miss calls and text. Anybody else have this issue? Seems like i cant be the only one. did not do this on my old android version, but now all the time. Any help would be greatly appreciated
