    Default Problem with Samsung Tablet WIFI

    Has anyone had an issue with samsung tablets and the WIFI and bluetooth setting flicking on and off? It seems to have started since upgrading to Marshmellow 6.01

    Tablet is model Sm T800 a reasonably high end from a year or 2 ago

    I would try a system reset & see if it makes any difference.

    Ok the symptoms are the wifi and bluetooth sliders on the settings screen flicking on and off non stop. Sometimes it will connect and stay online a few minutes then back to flicking on and off.

    Its not an issue with my vodafone router as the flicking on and off wifi slider on the settings page does it no matter the location. E.g when we took it back to the shop.

    No an HG659 Vodafone one. I don't think the router has anything to do with it. You should be able to enable wifi even if you havn't connected to anyone.

    I've done many procedures, wiping cache, resetting network settings, clearing apps cache disabling location, safe mode etc.

    I've not done a factory reset as yet as that is last resort since it won't be good for much if everything is wiped then can't get it back online..

    Well this will be the 2nd fault with same unit since it already went back under warrenty and had the screen replaced . Big blue lines down it.
    There are quite a few google hits with the same issue of wifi and bluetooth flicking on and off.

    Maybe a dud batch?
