    WiFi Disconnects Overnight

    My Galaxy Tab S used to stay connected to WiFi permanently.

    Recently, though, it disconnects overnight. To access my router again, I have to do a restart.

    How can I overcome this, please?

    Welcome to the forum

    I assume your WiFi stays on but disconnects when it goes to sleep? For how long? Are you having any other WiFi issues you are aware of?

    Thanks for reply, leeshor.

    At night, I close the case and the tablet switches off. In the morning, it awakes as I open the case but WiFi is no longer connected.

    I have to do a restart, then WiFi is ok.

    I have no other issues.

    Thanks.

    I'm going a little more specific here.

    During the day do you close the cover?

    If so. does it disconnect?

    I close the cover whenever I have finished doing something with the tablet. This means it can get opened and closed several times a day.

    I don't think it has ever disconnected on such occasions - only overnight, after it has been closed for at least eight hours.

    This has begun happening only in the past couple of weeks.

    Just a thought - perhaps it would also happen in the daytime if I were to keep it closed for such a long period of time? I've never tried that. But it still wouldn't explain why it should disconnect.

    I wish I could tell you something that would help but I'm at a loss on that.

    Thanks anyway, leeshor, I appreciate your trying to help.

    I will try leaving it in sleep for many hours during the day, to see if it disconnects from WiFi then.

    Should I find a solution, I will post it here for future reference.

    Thanks again.

    Sounds like a good plan.
