Samsung Galaxy S5 Wi-Fi Connectivity Problems After 4.4.4 Update
My Galaxy S5 has had no connectivity issues at all. This morning I installed the 4.4.4 update and immediately began having wi-fi connectivity issues. The S5 keeps dropping the connection and then reconnecting. This is constant.
Obviously, the signal was strong enough and constant enough that I was able to download the 487 MB update with no connectivity problems whatsoever. Now, however, when I check Wi-Fi networks, I note the S5 is constantly scanning. Is that normal?
None of the other devices using Wi-Fi on this home network are experiencing connectivity issues, including a netbook, a tablet, and a Kindle Paperwhite e-reader. According to the S5, the signal is "strong," yet it continues to drop and then reconnect.
I have tried the S5 on other networks and the same problem exists. Others are experiencing the same problem after installing 4.4.4. Unfortunately, a number of us posted in an earlier topic, which had been marked solved; therefore, our posts may likely go unnoticed.
