    hello,
    I have a Galaxy Tab 3 8.0 with 4.2.2 when I am looking for a wifi and connected, it seems that the tablet keeps checking for a wifi connection.
    Is there a way to stop it from searching for another wifi in the area?

    thanks

    The only way you could say that is if you're looking at the wifi page - and that tells the phone that you're looking for a wifi signal, so it's going to search even if you have searching turned off. ("Manually find a connection for me" overrides "don't search once you're connected".)

    Once you close that page it stops searching. But it's like the light in the refrigerator. Everyone tells you that when you close the door, the light goes off. But every time you check, the light's on.
