Galaxy S23 plus wifi issues



I have a galaxy s23 plus that is giving me trouble with wifi.


I have the TP-Link Deco devices that I use for wifi in my house.


The s23 connects to the wifi and shows there is internet but the apps do not want to use the wifi. As soon as I turn the wifi off the apps work perfectly again.


Please can anyone help me. I have tried troubleshooting but no success.

My guess is that the phone isn't whitelisted if you enabled whitelist in your router settings, other than that i have no idea

Are you using Pi-hole for dns filtration, or firewalls on the network?


RethinkDNS open-source app inside F-droid store, can show you all IP and dns requests, and how and why any of them could be blocked.  Oncr installed, go to logs, and DNS.


If any requests have a red line and the request says, then it means your DNS choice is intercepting the requests and blocking them.  If there is no red lines for DNS or network logs, then the requests are getting through, and recieving IP address replys from the dns server.  This usually means the connections should be working.

Windows 11 will just force business to "recycle" "obscolete" hardware so Microsoft makes more money from hardware sales, no matter how awful the downstream effects of e-waste will be, they do not care.  They have also not shown any interest nor has any other company in a similar financial position, to help increase tech recycling whatsoever.


Why do you need a 90 or 120 or 144 or 165Hz screen on a smartphone?  You're viewing 60Hz or even 30Hz content.

Dark Reader addon for webpages.  Pick any color you want for both background and text (background and foreground page elements).  Enable the preview mode on desktop for Firefox and Chrome addon, by clicking the dark reader addon settings, Choose dev tools amd click preview mode.


NoScript or EFF's privacy badger addons can block many scripts and websites that would load and track you, possibly halving page load time!


F-droid is a place to install open-source software for android, Antennapod, RethinkDNS, Fennec which is Firefox with about:config, lots of performance and other changes available, mozilla KB has a huge database of what most of the settings do.


I recommend firewall apps (blocks apps) and dns filters (redirect all dns requests on android, to your choice of dns, even if overridden).  RethinkDNS is my pick and I set it to use pi-hole, installed inside Ubuntu/Debian, which is inside Virtualbox, until I go to a website, nothing at all connects to any other server.  I also use NextDNS.io to do the same when away from home wi-fi or even cellular!  I can even tether from cellular to ANY device sharing via wi-fi, and block anything with dns set to NextDNS, regardless if the device allows changing dns.


You most likely have never needed a new phone (new hardware) to play most android games, using OpenGL, research videos for the games you want to play even console emulation, and see how well a phone from 12 years ago will run them.


PC specs:

Fedora Linux

Intel quad core, reduced speed to 1Ghz.

2 GB DDR3 clocked down to 800Mhz

GPU hardware (cpu has no integrated video)
