Check How to Fix ‘Android Phone Not Con­nect­ing to Wi-Fi’ Issue

Is it difficult for your phone to stay connected to your home or business network? Is the problem limited to a single Android Wi-Fi network or does it affect all networks? You do not have to worry.

Find that your phone disconnects from a Wi-Fi network minutes after connecting? Is this something that happens all the time or only once in a while? Whatever the scenario, this essay will help you figure it out. Let’s start with this.

How to fix the problem and reconnect

1. Reconnect to the network: Sometimes simply restarting the Wi-Fi network connection that keeps disconnecting could help fix the problem. Here’s how to do it on your Android device.

  • Open your phone’s Settings menu.
  • Select the option ‘Network and Internet’.
  • If your device is connected to a network, touch the Wi-Fi option.
  • Look for a gear icon to check more details of the connected network, and then select Forget. That disconnects your device from the Wi-Fi network and removes the network from your phone’s memory.
  • If you are not connected to the network with the “reconnect and disconnect” problem, tap on “Saved Networks” in the Wi-Fi Settings menu.
  • Select the network with the connection problem simply by touching the name.
  • Tap the Forget icon.

That will remove the network from your device’s memory. Now reconnect to the network by entering the network credentials; enter a password if the network has one. If the ‘disconnect and reconnect’ problem persists, try any of the following troubleshooting tips.

2. Forget the previously connected network: Usually when multiple networks are available in range of your phone, the Android operating system tries to connect to the network with the best signal strength. This is a brilliant feature. One downside is that in the process of finding and switching to the best network, your device’s Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting and reconnecting.

You can fix this by forgetting the available networks you have previously connected to (follow steps 1 – 7 above) or use a Wi-Fi Prioritizer – apps that tell your device which network to connect to when multiple networks are available.

3. Disable interfering applications: Some apps help you get the most out of Wi-Fi networks on your Android device, but sometimes they affect its functionality. Some examples of these applications are VPNs and Wi-Fi prioritization applications. If any of these apps could cause network interference on your device, temporarily disabling or turning them off may help. If you have an antivirus app installed and active on your device, you need to disable or turn it off and see if it fixes the Wi-Fi disconnect and reconnect issues. This worked for some Android users.

Do this and reconnect to your Wi-Fi network. If the problem persists and your phone cannot stay connected to your Android device, try the following troubleshooting solution below.

4. Reset network settings: Resetting your Android smartphone’s network settings could also help fix this problem. What a network reset does is update your phone’s Wi-Fi settings, cellular network settings, Bluetooth settings, and VPN settings. This helps troubleshoot network and connectivity issues on your device. Follow the steps below to reset your phone’s network settings.

  • Open your phone’s Settings menu.
  • Scroll to the bottom and select System.
  • Touch the Advanced drop-down option.
  • Select Reset Options.
  • Tap ‘Reset Wi-Fi, Mobile and Bluetooth’.
  • Tap the Reset Settings button at the bottom of the page.

After that, reconnect to the Wi-Fi network.

5. Restart your phone: It is common knowledge that restarting your phone (or any device) helps to fix some problems that you might face. This lifelong troubleshooting technique could also fix Android Wi-Fi issues that keeps disconnecting and reconnecting. Just tap and hold your phone’s power button and select Restart. Reconnect your phone to the network when it is turned on again and check if your phone stays connected to the network or not.

6. Check the router configuration: You also want to make sure that your phone is not blocked from accessing the network. Because if so, that could be the main reason why your device cannot stay connected to the network. If you have access to the router dashboard / admin panel, unlock your device if it has been blacklisted or blocked. If you don’t have access to the router’s admin panel, contact someone who does.

7. Restart the Wi-Fi router: If your device is not blocked or blacklisted by the router, check that (read: the router) is working properly. Typically restarting a router fixes some connectivity issues; you may want to try that. Upon reboot, reconnect your phone to the network and see if it disconnects. If the problem persists, continue with the next troubleshooting suggestion below.

8. Update the router firmware: Do you know how OS updates bring new features to your smartphone and fix some bugs and issues? That is what firmware updates do to your router. If you are sure that the ‘Wi-Fi disconnect and reconnect’ issue on your Android phone is the result of some issues with your router, then updating the firmware might help to fix the problem. Firmware updates are easy. You should visit your router manufacturer’s website or read the router’s instruction manual on how to do it.
