    Anyone having problems with WIFI connection, like searching for 5-60 minutes...?

    Seems like occasionally, when I turn on wifi on my Galaxy like at public libraries, colleges, coffee shops..., it will search for eternity and not find a signal that is there. So I turn wifi on and off for 5-10 times and finally it connects after 5-10-20-30-40 minutes of waiting and trying, or sometimes not at all. Other wifi places, it connects immediately.

    Anyone else having the same problem?

    I'm still having this problem with the Galaxy NOT connecting to wifi.

    What can I do about this? How can I make it connect?

    I don't have 5-10-20-30-40-50 mins to wait for it to connect. Is Samsumg aware of this issue?

    Are you able to connect at other locations? Starbucks, etc.. I had to call Samsung TS. They did reset my tab. I switched routers and now have no trouble. I am guessing it had somethig to do with older router

    I have gone to other places and wifi connects immediately. Other places, it won't connect even though other people on laptops are connected. Very frustrating.
