I was watching something online on my Tab S2 and suddenly the video paused, initially I thought it was buffering but later realised Wi-Fi disconnected yes and won't reconnect. Rebooted the tablet but no luck. Also rebooted Fritzbox. I use the wireless security settings where new wireless devices are not allowed, only known one's. Has anyone ever had this issue? I've already checked that Rab S2 MAC is still there in m own devices and I've already tried removing and re adding it. All other known devices are working ok.

Is your wireless SSID the default name of have you changed it? I had problems with some devices when our router was set to the default eg Orcon-Wireless. When my wife went to work it would try to connect to other Orcon-Wireless networks and fail (obviously). The device would then no longer connect unless I forgot the network and readded it.
