Hi, a few days ago, i have trouble with the wifi in my tab 4, model sm-t230nu, has not been dropped, only and maybe, i root and install a couple of apps, inclusive with the modem near, 50cm aprox, the problem is the same, every 5 or 6minutes the tablet cant connect with the wifi but the little icon of the signal still appear with excellent signal..... to resolve this problem, i need to disconnect the wifi in the tablet and recharge this.....

I have two of these devices and they both do the same thing as you are describing. They are "connected" to the wifi but they will no connect to the internet. This happens over and over and over. It can happen on both devices 7-8 times in a few hours. I called Samsung and they said it was my router. I called AT&T and they said it was the devices. I also have a Tab3 10.1 and I never have this problem, All of other wifi devices do not have this problem. It has to have something to do with the SM-T230NU. I noticed there was a software update for the device this morning so I am hoping there is a fix included.

If some others can chime in that are having the same problem with the SM-T230NU maybe we can at least get Samsung to acknowledge the issue because right now they are in denial.

I'm not getting disconnects (at least on this first day with the t230nu) but the WiFi signal strength is considerably less than my Note 3 in the same room as the Tab 4. Probably related?

I actually get total disconnects. I'll be playing a game or browsing the web and suddenly no internet connection and about a second later I see the toast message that it's now connected to Wi-Fi. If I reboot the tablet, it seems to work fine again for a while, but after a day or two, it does it again.

check build prop
I just received this tab 4, 7 inch and I am having this same WiFi connection issue. I have looked through the build prop and found two conflicting lines.

ro.carrier=wifi only



Now the WiFi only line makes sense since my tab is a WiFi only model, but the unknown line usually means an open type data carrier. I have commented out the "unknown" line and will post back if it makes a difference.
