Network Disabled because the Internet Connection is Slow Error

 Network Disabled because the Internet Connection is Slow Error

For the last few weeks since my update to 4.3 on my Galaxy S4,  I have been receiving the following error: Network Disabled because the Internet Connection is Slow.

This error has been driving me nuts and I FINALLY figured out how to fix this error. I will go through the step by step procedure with screenshots.

First off, go to your Wi-Fi settings.  At the Wi-Fi page, press the menu button and click on the advance tab.  Scroll down until you see “Always allow scanning” and “Auto network switch”.  In my case, the boxes were checked.  Make sure the boxes are unchecked.  Now this issue is fixed!!!  Any questions?

  1. I still have 4.2.2 on my S4. My coworker has a Samsung tablet; he can get on the wireless at the office but I can’t, even after I disable the “Check for Internet Service” button subtitled “Auto switch between WiFi and mobile networks”. And then rebooting.

    Any thoughts?

  2. This is an issue with 4.3. I have not heard this issue with 4.2.2. If you are rocking a S4, I would upgrade to 4.4.2. It is also easier to root and it is free.
