OnePlus 5 switches from WiFi to Data randomly

Some users have reported that the OnePlus 5 switches to data from WiFi without any notice. There could be a few different reasons why this happens.

The first reason that this could happen is because the mobile data connection setting is turned ON that switch from Wi-Fi to Data when you have a WEAK Wi-Fi connection. This setting is called “Smart network switch” and it’s possible to modify this setting to help with the OnePlus 5 WiFi problem. (But I recommend this one to be turned ON always.


How to disable the “Smart network switch” on the OnePlus 5:

  1. Turn off your OnePlus 5.
  2. Turn on mobile data connection.
  3. Once you’ve got the mobile data connection turned ON, Tap on Menu -> Settings -> Wireless.
  4. Uncheck the “Smart network switch” option.
  5. Once you do this, the One Plus 5 will stop automatically changing between Wi-Fi and mobile data.

Enjoy your monster unit! 🙂
