Fix Wi-Fi Keeps Disconnecting on Samsung Tab S7, S7+
Toggle Airplane Mode
To troubleshoot the network connections, Airplane mode plays a significant role, whether it is Mobile Data or Wi-Fi. Since the Wi-Fi keeps disconnecting on Samsung Tab S7/S7+, you should toggle the Airplane Mode for a few moments and disable it, to stabilize the wireless connections of the Tab.
- Navigate to the Notifications bar and tap the Airplane mode button or open the Settings app > Connections > Airplane mode.
Restart Galaxy Tab
If the Airplane mode didn’t resolve the Wi-Fi issue, try to restart the Galaxy Tab. Rebooting the Galaxy Tab will deal with the crashed software and applications that might be preventing your Tab S7 from connecting to the Wi-Fi.
- Press and hold the Volume down button and Power button until the Tab restarts.

Till now, we’ve made sure that it isn’t a minor software problem by restarting Tab and toggling the Airplane mode. Now it’s time to take a look at the Wi-Fi router. Restarting the Wi-Fi router means, plug out the power adapter of the router and after a minute plug it back.

If none of the other devices are working with that Wi-Fi connection, then you need to urgently make a call or contact anyhow to the service provider and file the complaint.
On another note, all other smartphones and devices are working as usual except the Galaxy Tab S7, start troubleshooting the Tab.
