Galaxy S7 Wi-fi problem fixed in update

This week the Samsung Galaxy S7 has been updated with an OTA software kick in the pants that rectifies several Wi-fi-related problems. This update is coming to the Verizon version of the device first, it seems, somehow, miraculously, and includes Wi-fi connectivity on Marshmallow OS first and foremost. This update also fixes reported problems connecting to the web both on and off Wi-fi, "frequent data disconnections", and "problems while loading files or webpages.

Verizon suggests that you, the user, "Connect your device to a Wi-Fi network, or make sure it has a strong Verizon Wireless network connection" before you download this newest update. They also suggest that you "ensure your battery is fully charged before starting the software update."

This software patch will arrive automatically on your device. If you absolutely cannot wait, you'll want to open Settings on your device and scroll all the way to the bottom of your list of Settings until you get to System. At the bottom of THAT list you'll find "System updates".

This update also includes a note about Android Security Updates. Oddly while the first alert for this update suggests there are Android Security Updates, the document within the update makes no further mention of said software.

Either way you'll want to hit the update button as soon as possible. This is Software Version MMB29M.G930VVRU2APB5, and it'll be available to you immediately if not soon.
