So I've seen a couple of posts already but none of it has worked for me. My note 20 ultra stays on the wifi but no internet connectivity.

Things I have done already:

1. Rebooted phone of course

2. (Didn't want to) but factory reset phone 

3. Swapped modem

4. Reset goggle wifi router to factory and set it up again.

5. Did the turn off smart switch features

6. Trouble shooted, but nothing in the network drops off except for note 20.

 

I work from home so I am on my work phone, tablet, and laptop and none of them drop off. Knf with the other Iot devices in home.

I turn wifi off/on and im back in but only lasts 10-15 minutes.

My cell data is going thru the roof due to this lol

also too many devices on one wifi channel will also have one or more of your devices with no internet. that's because your other devices is hogging up the internet connection. I don't never have my location on.

I don't have anything that would hog up that much and I haven't introduced anything new to the network. But luckily the Google location thing worked. You me, still keeping fingers crossed lol

Just got my N20 Ultra this week and soon noticed this same trouble with the WIFI.  Scanned a few threads and tried a couple possible fixes...switching to Phone MAC didn't do it, and I just not turned off WIFI scan throttling, so we'll see if that has any effect.  

I know it's not a network issue since the dozens of other devices I have on WIFI at home work just fine, but I haven't yet noticed this issue happening on WIFI at the office, so that got me looking at a couple things on my home network setup.

I just switched my N20 back to DHCP and removed the IP reservation from my home router.  I won't be able to use my custom DNS settings this way, but we'll see if there's any improvement.

I really don't want to have to cripple another feature, like location accuracy, to make a basic feature work properly!
