Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Wi-Fi connection problem (slow internet or no internet)

[Updated] Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra inconsistent Camera HDR or dynamic range issue reported by users

The Galaxy S22 Ultra arrived in February as the latest king in Samsung’s flagship smartphone lineup.

The device differs from others in the lineup in things like the design, cameras, display, and native support for the S-Pen stylus (with a port reserved for storage and charging).

However, some Galaxy S22 Ultra users have been facing issues since the launch of the device, some of which are still present today (1, two, 3, 4).

One of the most recurring problems that some users experience is related to the Wi-Fi connectivity of the device. It seems that many times the affected Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra appears connected to a Wi-Fi network, but without internet.

However, pending an official fix, we have compiled a set of workarounds that you can try to help resolve or mitigate the issue.

Samsung Galaxy S22 Ultra Wi-Fi connected no internet or slow internet

I am having problems with my S22 Ultra dropping wifi connection (connected without internet). It will connect to the router for a few minutes, the connection speed will be horrible, then the wifi will drop again, repeatedly. I’ve reset the network, reset the router (although no other wifi devices are experiencing problems), turned off the phone, rebooted into safe mode, tried a static IP, etc, all to no avail.

I too have a similar problem. I got my s22 ultra yesterday and the internet was down. When checked with the speed test, it showed the internet speed to be 20 MBPS. I have a 1gbps connection. Rebooting the phone or resetting the network settings gets it up to 300-400 Mbps, but only for 2-5 minutes and again the speed drops. Websites do not open.

Affected users were hoping that the latest updates would resolve the issue. However, the situation reportedly remains even after the March update.

Possible Workarounds That Might Help You

Until a definitive solution arrives from Samsung, we have listed for you a set of solutions that might help:

  • Change Wi-Fi settings from DHCP to STATIC via ‘Settings >> Wi-Fi >> Advanced Settings >> IP Settings’ path:
  • Enable ‘Automatic date and time’ through the path ‘Settings >> General management >> Date and time’:
  • Reset network settings (go to Settings > General management > Reset > Reset network settings).
  • Put the Wi-Fi router close to where you use the phone frequently.
  • Activate ‘Airplane mode‘ to do an update on any radio transmissions that may be interfering with the Wi-Fi signal.
  • Disable “Fast Transition” in SSID settings could help you Solve this problem.
  • Turning off Bluetooth might also help, as sometimes the Bluetooth signal interferes with the Wi-Fi signal.
  • Finally, if none of the above works for you, you can try doing a factory reset on your device.
  • In case the problems continue even after a factory reset then it might also be a hardware problem. So it may be better to go to the technical service or take advantage of the guarantee of your device (if it is still active).

    It’s worth noting that a big April patch update is out. being unfolded in some territories for the Galaxy S22 Ultra Snapdragon version.

    The update in question is 1.5 GB in size, so many fixes and changes are expected. You also have the option to wait for this update to arrive in your region before going to support (if you have the problem).
