I have had this problem. I have solved it by deleting all the saved wi-fi's that I have previously logged on to.

All videos are now playing, I guess my pad is now mot constantly searching for the strongest WiFi signal.

Hi Jason M Taylor,

Can you check to see which apps are using the WiFi the most? Are they ones that you are using or 'others'? -not system apps though. Have you tried installing and running Malwarebytes for mobiles in case you have malware in your Tab?

How many different WiFi points have you connected the tablet to? Does the tablet behave the same way, regardless of the wireless router?

Pretty much every time I have experienced something like this, it has been down to the router, not the tablet / phone.

Most of the time, you can adjust your router settings and it can solve the problem. Go in to your router settings and see whats going on. Is your router broadcasting on both 2.4 and 5Ghz? Has the router any "smart channel switching" technology going on? What is your wifi security policy?

Try changing these options and see how you get on

Which does the Samsung Galaxy Tab4 nook need. I have had my tablet replaced once for the same issue. It shows it is connected but won't work. My IPad, computer, and phone are all on my network with no problem. Does it matter if it is using the 2.4 or 5Ghz? I have never had to change that, though I have both. Help

None of the solutions helped me. My other tablet works fine. This happens no matter the wifi I connect to so it isn't the router. It will connect to a network for about 2 seconds then the Wi-Fi will turn off then back on again connect then back off. It is very frustrating. I've done a factory reset. I've cleared cashe partition I've deleted all networks I've even taken it to Samsung to make sure it's updated on software. They didn't know what was wrong either. Getting ready to trash body knows what is wrong or how to fix
