    My S3 won't stay connected to my home network. It shows my network but at the top of the screen it says 4g. I did a restart, removed the battery turned wifi off/on. I enter my password & connect then a few seconds later it goes back to 4g.

    Try going to Settings > Wifi > [menu button] Advanced and set 'Keep wifi on during sleep' to 'Always' Not sure if that's the problem but it might help :)

    I don't know if this a drastic measure or not, but to reset your router.
