I just got this tab 4 7 inch last week and I am having the same problem with connections showing connected but not having any data transfer. The steps in the above link did not help for me.
I have updated to the latest firmware posted on sammobile, both the Canada version and the nook (BNN) version. Neither have made a difference.

I have found another thread in thisnforrum for this same problem, and there wasn't any solution there either.

I did find wha I think might be solution but haven't proofed it yet. in the build prop there was two "ro.carrier" lines. I think there is only supposed to be one, so I commented out one.

Original Example:

ro.carrier=wifi only


Changed example:

ro.carrier=wifi only


If anybody can confirm this makes a difference or not please post results


After two weeks without problem anymore it appears the fix was the static IP address not the build prop change.

I found threads going back to at least 2007 about Samsung devices having trouble with dhcp and all the solutions being manually assign a static IP to the device.

Same issue here. Sometimes I have to cycle the WiFi every webpage!

Both of the above solutions didn't work for me, unfortunately.

Edit: Okay, I may have found the issue, at least for me. Turns out, the tablet was auto-assigning the same IP as my RasPi. After setting a static IP, everything looks okay from here. Hope this helps!

Changing to static IP did nothing, I was having to reset wifi on the tab every time I turned on the screen.
I even had wifi fixer constantly running.

Finally updated to NJ3 and everything is working properly.
Looks like it's a FW issue.
