Galaxy S4 - Internet connection is unstable

My wife is from time to time getting a message on her Galaxy S4 when connected to internet via wifi, "your internet connection is unstable"

 

I have no problem connecting with my Galaxy S2 or laptop and as far as I can see connection is stable.

 

Any thoughts on what the problem is?

It's a new thing after the Android 4.3 update on the S4, which is why it doesn't appear on the S2.

 

Unfortunately, I'm not sure what exactly triggers it, and I can't find a definitive list via a Google search.

Re: Galaxy S4 - Internet connection is unstable

Hi All,

 

This is a new one as Ben says. This is an issue with the new update for android but no real work around I have found so far I'm afraid. All I can recommend at the moment is strengthening the wireless signal you connect to. Here's a guide if you need it. Changing the channel and mode may help until a more permanent fix is available.

I have same problem. If you go in settings, tap wi/fi, tap menu key, select advanced and then check automatic network switch it stops it. I've checked and so far it hasn't used any mobile data, just stops the annoying pop up.
