    Hi I recently bought Samsung Galaxy S7 Edge from Verizon. Wi-Fi on it worked perfectly for the first few days, then I noticed I had great connection but I couldn't do things like downloading apps for watching YouTube videos, all I could do was use Google. I had a great signal and when I used to speed test it said my speed was great. I recently noticed that when I took out my SIM card from the tray Wi-Fi work well again but when I put it back in and work for about 3 minutes then goes back to the bad WiFi I have a net gear C63 hundred router Wi-Fi works perfectly on all other devices please help thank you

    Long shot but try this: –
    Go to Settings/Wi-Fi and tap on MORE/Smart network switch. Set the switch to Off.

    Go to Wi-Fi Settings. And "Forget" your existing Wi-Fi. Restart and try.


    If you still have a problem and know how to fiddle with your router, set up a fixed setting for your phone.

    How do you set up a fixed setting?

    Is this your own home office or where you work?

    If your office requires the MAC address of the device and as your S7 is new, they would need to update/add that new MAC address.
