Samsung, I'm using your S20 Ultra, your SmartThings wifi and can not connect to anything. As a matter of fact, I had to turn off wifi to write this. I returned the first S20 Ultra and this one is no better. Guess I'll return this one too. Seriously poor choices made in production of this phone.
Just got the s20+ on 5/23. Did all updates and still getting wifi drops regularly with very strong wifi router.
Have 5 year old tablet air that gets 150Mbps, a 2 yr old midrange phone getting 200Mbps, and another US 2 yr phone getting 145Mbps. This phone gets 4Mbps! Then drops connection between switching web pages on same site. Terrible for a $1000 new phone.
I have the same problem. Keeps dropping the connection to my laptop when tethered. I only received the phone yesterday and I have already decided I will never buy a Samsung phone again. Technical support were hopeless after hours and hours of resetting settings etc and advised me to get a refund. Phoned customer services and they are giving me my money back. Time to try an iPhone unless someone can tell me something Samsung technical support failed to point out.
Tethering works fine when I use an old S8 plus so I'm presuming the problem is with the new S20 ultra. Samsung are ripping us off charging £1200 for a phone that can't even do the basics.
Also spent a lot of money on some buds plus and a fancy LED case for the phone. The £54 case didn't work as the phone didn't connect to that either and show any icons on the front cover. Again Samsung shrugged their shoulders and just offered a refund. Worse shopping experience I've ever had.
Had new Samsung galaxy s20 ultra less than a week now and it constantly drops WiFi connection at home. Cannot reconnect without rebooting phone.
Samsung knows of this issue but no fix. Cannot get to speak to anyone for support due to Covid-19.
Now want to return the phone but again cannot contact anyone to sort return.
What do I do??
I have similar issues with my s20. Constantly drops the wifi and passes it back to the cell network At times, the wifi turns off entirely and I have to manually turn it back on. Tech support is helpless. No other device on my network has issues. I'm done with Samsung phones.

i will turn it back
Here's my take. Samsung has an issue with WIFI-6. I had a Tp-link AC5400 and it handles my S20+'s fine. I upgraded my router to a Tp-link AX11000 and just my S20's drop connection.
Only time they don't disconnect is if I'm within 10ft of the router.
I can be in my bedroom with a wifi strength of -63dbm and do a reset of my wifi on the phone and it comes back up at -63. I run a speedtest and I get 500mbps down and 45mbps up, I run a 2nd test and it starts at 500 and slows down to around 40 and upload stays at 45 run a 3rd test and ping is 3ms jitter is 1ms and download is 5then up load is still 45 4th test and do is 0 and can't do anything! Signal strength still -63dbm.
I test all other wifi units in the house and all are good my old phone OnePlus 6t will download at 350 sitting right next to my S20 in the bedroom.
I'm having the same issues. No other phone tablet or laptop has this issue in my home but my s20 ultra keeps dropping wifi. Also the WiFi signal keeps varying in strength even when I am staying in the same location.
I just purchased this phone a few days ago and I'm having the same issue. It shows I'm attached to my WiFi but the phone uses the carrier for data. Only if I turn carrier data off, does it use the wifi and that is kind of intermittant. If this an issue that can be fixed by a phone replacment?
I had the exact same problem with my Ultra. I even performed a factory reset. I took the unit to the service center and they said they needed to replace the main board. I could not accept a repaired $1300 phone, so I asked to replace my unit instead.
Call your country's Samsung hotline. It'll take a while due to the quarantine, but they'll do something.
