Solved! Go to Solution.
Called Samsung today and they want me to send the ph in. Such a pain.
I refused to factory reset my phone. It was perfectly fine before the andriod 11 update. Its the updates problem, not hardware. Samsung needs to fix this. Let's hope it gets resolved soon
Bring up settings
Scroll down to "Location"
Look for "Google Location Accuracy"
This will solve the problem. It will causes apps like camera to be upset and want location accuarcy turned on, but it does still work. Google Maps will still work but throws similar messages. Basically it means the phone can't use GPS, Mobile Data and Wifi combined for location. But it can still use GPS on it's own, just might take a few seconds longer to locate you.
There is nothing stopping you turning it back on when needed when out and about and turning it off when back home on wifi.
I also recomend you submit a report on Samsung Members and telling them this is what you have to do to fix it. The more that does it, the more Samsung have to act. Also on review sites, don't give 5 star review for the phone, give less and detail the problem. The more public it is, again Samsung will have to fix.
This issue started for me before the Android 11 update. WiFi worked fine when I got the phone at release in late August until around mid November. Turning off Google Location Accuracy, and then toggling WiFi off and back on does put a band aid on the problem and get WiFi working again. I haven't had to change from Randomized MAC to get it working. It's still really annoying getting messages from many apps asking you to turn it back on. This has been a known issue for months and the fact that Samsung refuses to acknowledge it is straight GARBAGE!
