Right from when we got our Orcon Wireless router it has worked a lot better with Apple products than with Samsung. At first I just thought it was my partners Galaxy mini which had the problem. Now I have a Galaxy Note Pro it has exactly the same issues.
I can browse emails and many websites ok, it's just when I try and download anything (games, apps and photos) the error message appears telling my I've lost network connection.
Is there any settings on the router or androids I can change?
Starting to wonder why I decided to try Samsung instead of Apple.

Welcome to Geekzone. Not enough info to indicate your issue is the fault of Samsung or Android, and there are modems/devices that have problems/issues with Apple products as well so there is no "perfect" device. We have multiple Samsung devices here as well as Sony, Huawei and Apple devices and no issues at all.

Can you please provide any more details with regards to the model of the modem you have? The more details you can provide, the easier it will be for members to assist.

Cheers




Keep calm, and carry on posting.

That's just the brand. Model will be something like NF4V. Should be on a sticker perhaps on the back or base of the modem?

There are no specific issues with that router and Samsung devices. The issue is definitely going to be something related to your specific setup.
