WiFi issue - Disables itself
Rooted Samsung S4 MDL ROM OUDhs SWM Touch Recovery v188.8.131.52
This problem may have started about 11 days ago when for the first time my phone ran out of battery on me. (Had used the NAV a lot that day). I'm not sure if it is connected or not. I'm not sure when I first noticed WiFi was turned off. I think it was over the weekend, but who knows.
Problem: When I leave an area where I am connected to WiFi it disables WiFi and will not reconnect anywhere until I turn WiFi back on. When it detects the loss of the WiFi signal it will show the list of Access points it sees. I don't see it that often because usually it is in my pocket. I just watched it once or twice to see what happens as I drove away from work or home. It will go on to AT&T mobile data and stay on it even if I am in an area with a saved WiFi connection (such as home or work). I essentially have to remember to turn on WiFi anytime I get home or to work.
While looking for a problem I found a setting in the WiFi settings section under advanced. The setting is Check for Internet service "Auto switch between Wi-Finetworks and mobile networks" This was unchecked. Last night I checked it. I figured it may have unchecked itself or something when I ran out of battery last week. Well this didn't help. When I got to work this morning I still had to toggle on the WiFi.
FYI, I am still on stock ROM. Anytime an update comes down it downloads it, if I reboot, it won't install so that is a good thing. I still have root and SU.
