Comments on Galaxy S6 WiFi connectivity, slow or dropping issues or problems
Description of Galaxy S6 Wifi Connectivity Problem:
I just got the galaxy s6 two days ago and I am already having wifi issues. The phone tells me that the signal is very strong but it cannot load pages and tabs keep crashing. I have to turn off wifi and then turn it back on multiple times to fix the issue. After about 15 minutes it goes right back and continues with the same issue. I know this is not a modem or router issue because all of my other devices are connected and have no issues of loading anything work perfect. Just posting to see if anybody else has this same issue.

I got my s6 yesterday (on Verizon) and am having a similar issue. Basically it is connecting to WiFi but not moving quickly, or sometimes at all, when connected.
Description of Samsung S6 Wifi Connection Problem:
I am experiencing a similar wifi connectivity issue with my new S6. I can connect to my main router without an issue, my problem is that when I am on the far end of my house and attempt to change my wifi connection to my wifi extender. Both are Netgear devices and none of my other devices have an issue with connecting to the extender. The S4 I had previously also experienced no issues with connecting.
Description of Samsung Galaxy S6 Wifi Connection Problem:
My WiFi connection was pitifully slow on my S6. It would take me several minutes to load/browse HBO GO or the Play Store. Many icons would just come up blank. I’m in an area where IPv6 is partially implemented, so I was curious and enabled it prior to getting this phone. Turning off IPv6 on the router made a huge difference — now everything works normally. I’m wondering why my S3 doesn’t have this problem…

I bought an S6 (not the edge) about a week and a half ago and was immediately frustrated at the laggy Internet experience when connected to my home wifi (Comcast modem and router in one. Single band 2.4 frequency).
