hi

I updated to 4.4.2 yesterday. And since then the Wifi turns off automatically after a few minutes when phone goes to sleep

I checked the wifi settings>Keep wifi on during sleep with both "always" and "never"

the problem still persists

Is anyone else facing a similar issue or am i missing something in the settings

Your help would be appreciated

Thanks

Welcome to the club, mate! For me, wifi has almost never worked as it should.
Mostly, it works just fine until the phone goes to sleep for a few minutes. Then
the speed is reduced to around 1-2 Mbit/s, & the only way to restore the speed
is to turn wifi off & then turn it on again. After doing that, everything's Hunky Dory
until the phone goes to sleep again. Then the story repeats itself....
I've almost given up on Samsung by now, since they seem totally unable (unwilling?)
to fix this widely experienced issue. Also, their update scheme for this "flag ship" (?)
suck big time, at least for us wanting the "NEE" version of KK4.4.2....
And btw, this phone also seems unable to record both sides of a conversation
when using a BT headset. That's NOT ok in 2014, Sammy! You've got my
money once, but you've made sure that I won't do the same mistake twice.

Has anybody found a solution to this, I can't download anything in sleep mode, tried all wifi settings, is it just 4.4.2?

Hi , is not the best solution but you can try Juice defender to automatically turn wifi on when phone wakes.
I'm on dr Ketan V14 rom and wifi works fine.
I hope that can help you.
