Thank you very much for your answer. After trying everything, the problem got solved changing a few paremeters at Unifi Wifi Controller, namely:
- disable Connectivity Monitor and Wireless Uplink
- set the AP is set on fixed channels
- run the lastest stable upgrade of both AP and Controller
All this together with what you recommend at the link, seem to have solved the problem so far.
Yes that is the one I am using. Sometimes I'll be on my home network it will be on for 5 minutes and shut completely off to reconnect all the time the fact I'm on it right now
I'm having WiFi issues with a Tab A as well but so far it has never worked well.
I bought a silver Samsung Galaxy Tab A 7" on Black Friday at Best Buy. The WiFi speeds were HORRIBLE. I'm talking 13.41 Mbps max and as low as 1.61 Mbps. My other devices include:
All of the devices in that list connect wirelessly between 120-230 Mbps (S7 Edge takes the crown; phone fricken rocks). I did a full factory reset on my Arris DOCSIS 3.0 AND two factory resets on my Tab A. Still could not break 20 Mbps. I returned it and grabbed the same model in black. I know there is no logical reason that color would have anything to do with it but weirder things can happen in tech. So the black model fared better than the silver but it still sucks; maxing out at around 37 Mbps. This is a completely usable connection speed BUT when my "ancient" G3 and Tab 4 are connecting at over 100 Mbps, those speeds are unacceptable.
Has anyone else recently purchased the 7" Tab A and found the connection to be terrible? This is so frustrating because I LOVE the 7" form factor in a tablet but no one makes a premium Android tablet in that size. My Tab 4 7.0 connects at a decent speed the software completely lags to the point of being nearly unusable at times. I've had to strip it down to uber bare bones Google apps only. Can't even browse the web without it hanging up. This is why I was in the market for a replacement.
At this point I'd be willing to spend "real" money one a tablet (and I really don't consider myself a table person) just to avoid the frustration (The Tab A silver was on sale for $89.99 and the black for $99.99). It is now Sunday. I am more than likely going to return the black Tab A tomorrow and just do some more research.
I have a Galaxy Tab A with S Pen that has recently lost the ability to connect to my wifi router at work. The tablet works great on all other routers and can easily connect to my hotspot (Galaxy S7). On the tablet, it shows that it is connected with signal strength "strong" but there is no throughput on apps or on a web browser. If I switch to my phone's hotspot it works fine. This occurred when I first got the tablet months ago and I returned that tablet to exchange it for another. Now it's occurring again. No one else in our office is having this issue (mostly Apple users) and this is completely crippling my use of the device. Note that we're way past the 30 day return period. I've deleted the Wifi network (forget) and added it back as well as deleted the cache partition on the device and it was able to download a few web pages very slowly but when I ran the Speedtest app it was unable to find a network.
Hey there userk0XBifL2iE, sadly this is a network issue with your workplace network. It could be a number of things within the network but to get down to the basics only the Service Provider for that network will be able to make it so that it works. I am very sorry for the inconveniences caused.
