    Hello, I'm new in the forum and here is my problem: suddenly out of nowhere my Galaxy tab 3 (SM-T210) stopped dectecting wifi networks, and then I realized (approaching my tablet next to my router) It only dectected my home wifi when I'm next to it, which didn't happened before, And I have tested with all my other devices and they can detect all networks arround (about 5-8), and I already used the factory reset card and nothing happened, I'd appreciate some help please It's driving me crazy.

    Welcome to the Forum. A factory reset should have cleared your WIFI data. Did you happen to notice if this is the case?
    I would go into WIFI Settings and remove all networks. Shutdown your tab and reboot your router. Once your router is online, power up the tab and see if your issue is resolved.

    If that's the case it could be a hardware issue.
