You might try connecting using WPS instead if your router has a WPS button. Others say their s7 does not detect/connect to 5ghz signals. it might be possible under the advanced settings on the S7 to FORCE 2.4ghz connection to check if thats more reliable. It is common for wifi chipsets to not like each other. Most routers are Dual Signal capable and Its worth looking at the router settings to see if you can also switch on GUEST signal for OLDER devices.

Log into your router and change the channel and see if that helps. Failing that try rebooting the router to factory settings and deleting your connection from the laptop. Then start from scratch again...Hope this helps...Please let me no...
