when i try to turn on wifi - the wifi buttons goes green for a slit second then immediately reverts to grey (0ff) will not stay on at all. i think this issue started a few weeks back, i dont think i installed anything new that could have caused..?

for my troubleshooting i have already cleared the system cache but that didnt fix. hoping to avoid teh factory reset if possible.

please advise thanks!!

This is interesting...:?

I have just upgraded from a Note 4 to an S7 Edge and I have experienced the same problem on both.
Likewise my better-half has the same behaviour on her Note 3 which she is using as her Xeperia is away for repair...
I have found the following to work:-
1. Turn on Airplane mode.
2. Turn on WiFi
3. Observe connection to known router.(nerd)
4. Turn Airplane mode off.
5. Observe WiFi connection remaining extant.
(smug)

Hope this helps Matey.

Hey John - thanks for the reply - spot on answer!! I actually had just figured it by accident, just prior to seeing this post haha.

for any folks who stumble upon this post in the future - read the above to fix it works.

Perhaps you should give it a reboot and then connect again to Wi-Fi.(cool)

lolz at Serena - did you not read the part 'cleared the system cache' ... that obviously included a reboot.

Oh sorry...I just get so used to sorting things out with a reboot.
