The Nougat update for unlocked s7 edge in the U.S trashed my WiFi

I have a S7 Edge SV-935U unlocked.  With the Nougat update the WiFi has become very unreliable.  Continuously disconnecting.    Documented many places  (such as http://thedroidguy.com/2017/02/samsung-galaxy-s7-wi-fi-switch-disabled-android-nougat-update-trouble...).

 

I have restarted in Safe Mode as well as Cleared Partition Cache.

 

I really do not want to do a factory reset; hoping that Samsung will issue a patch.

 

Interestingly (a clue or a quirk) the phone WiFi works fine with my home password protected network.  However other installations such as Hotels or Airport where one is to Sign In To the Network, that's when the issue is there - all the time, every time.

Re: The Nougat update for unlocked s7 edge in the U.S trashed my WiFi

We've noticed several random concerns with the new update. We want to be sure that all these get fixed up as soon as possible! To help our developers and bug fixers find all of these, I ask that you post this again on this thread here: https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Product-Updates/Announcement-Nougat-7-0-Update-Problems/m-p/7249...
That will place all of these concerns in one place and make it much easier not only to talk to each other but to have those that need to see all of these find them faster! Thanks.  Smiley Happy

Re: The Nougat update for unlocked s7 edge in the U.S trashed my WiFi (unstable)

The recent Nougat update has made the wifi unstable --- again!

Come on fellas - figure this out.
