But when the WiFi signal is strong and the LG G4 WiFi can’t stay connected, then there are several ways that you can fix this problem. The reason that the LG G4 WiFi doesn’t stay connected is because of the WLAN to mobile data connection option that is activated in the Android settings of the LG G4.

The name of this settings is called “Smart network switch” and was designed on the LG G4 in order to automatically switch between Wi-Fi and mobile networks, such as LTE, to build up a stable network connection all the time. The good news is that this WiFi setting can be adjusted to fix the LG G4 WiFi problem.
