PS4 will randomly lose WIFI connection and then will reconnect

It normally happens while playing online games, it will have a notification pop up and say “WIFI connection lost” but by the time the notification pops up, I can rejoin a party and reload into a game. It will randomly lose connection and I already applied new thermal paste because I thought the problem was caused from overheating. Is it my WIFI antenna?

Answer this question I have this problem too

Is this a good question?

2 ways to find out without opening the console. Either try another ps4 in the same location to rule out a wifi signal issue or interference or you can take the ps4 somewhere else with wifi and see if you run into the same issue. The antennas dont really go bad unless the console has physical damage. Also check the speeds when you do the internet test. If they are low, move the console closer to the router and see if its improves.

The wifi works on every device but this problem only occurs on the PS4. I turn all wifi devices off while I play and it won't help much. Could a connector go bad? I've had this console for years. I'm not sure but the lan port doesn't work either


Thats why i mention putting another ps4 in the same location, what if something near the tv is causing interference in the wifi. Other devices would not experience the same issue. Regarding the connector no they dont go bad. Only time ive had to do wifi repairs are on consoles that were dropped, stepped on or liquid damaged.


Had this too not long ago. Lost the wifi connection randomly, and didn’t moved the PS4 at all. Happend to me when I connected the VR. Do you also have the VR ? I updated the console and the VR and this fixed it for me.


I do not have VR. It started off during Mlb the show game and then carried over to all games


If I had another PS4 I wouldn’t need to fix mine, it’s never been moved in 2 years and this problem just started with the last couple months @ripper
