Samsung’s flagship S series are among the most popular Android devices out there. And for a lot of reasons. However, many users have had a hard time with Wi-Fi on their S9/S10 devices, especially the Samsung Galaxy S10. It seems that their devices either won’t connect at all or Wi-Fi is unstable and disconnects frequently. In case you have any S10 Wi-Fi issues on the S10, make sure to check the steps below.

Why is my S10 not connecting to WiFi?
It seems that there’s a major bug that’s resolved by updating the firmware. Allegedly, Samsung addressed it with an update. If updating doesn’t help, consider following the steps we listed below.
Solution 1 – Reboot the phone and the router
The first thing to try is restarting your wireless router and your handset. If there’s an IP conflict at hand, this should address it.
On the other hand, if you already tried this to no avail, continue to the next step.
Solution 2 – Forget the network and connect again
The next troubleshooting step to try is forgetting the troubling home network and re-enabling it again. This is done within the Wi-Fi settings menu of available networks. Once you forget the network, reboot your device, enter your credentials, and connect again.
Follow these instructions to forget and reconnect to a Wi-Fi network on your Samsung Galaxy S10:
- Open Settings.
- Open Connections.
- Tap Wi-Fi.
- Turn on Wi-Fi.
- Tap and hold on the preferred network and then select Forget network.
- Restart your phone and connect again.
Solution 3 – Tweak router settings
Some users who had Wi-Fi issues on their S10 fixed the problem by tweaking certain router settings. There are multiple things you can tweak, and we recommend disabling all network optimization options. All device-limiting options on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz wireless frequencies.
Alternatively, you can stick to 2.4 GHz frequency for the time being or, as the last resort, reset your router to factory settings and investigate settings again. If you are not sure how to access router settings, we recommend suggesting your ISP support.
Solution 4 – Update the S10 and router’s firmware
Based on a lot of reports, S10 Wi-Fi issues stopped occurring after users updated their devices to the latest monthly update. Samsung seemingly heard about S9/S10 connectivity issues and addressed them accordingly in a patch.
So, navigate to Settings > System updates > Download and install (if there are available updates). After you’ve installed the latest update, the Wi-Fi issues on your S10 should be gone.
Solution 5 – Reset Network settings
If the previous step hasn’t helped you, make sure to go and reset your S10 Network settings. Have in mind that this action will remove all saved SSIDs, Bluetooth pairings, and APN settings.
Follow these steps to reset network settings to factory values on the Samsung Galaxy S10:
- Open Settings.
- Choose General management.
- Tap Reset.
- Select Reset Network Settings.
- Confirm the selection.
Solution 6 – Reset your S10 to factory settings
Now, as the final resort, we can only suggest resetting your device to factory settings. Considering how cumbersome this restoring everything might be, we recommend this step only if you depleted all your options.
Here’s how to reset your S10 to factory settings in a few simple steps:
- Back up everything from your internal storage to an SD card or cloud.
- Open Settings.
- Choose General management and then Reset.
- Select Factory data reset.
- Tap Reset and then tap Delete all.
