Not only did Samsung surprise everyone by releasing three new tablets alongside the Galaxy S22, but these tablets are much more capable than you might have thought. In addition to the Wi-Fi-only versions, you can also get models with a cellular connection. This can transform your tablet into the ultimate portable workstation, complete with a network connection wherever you might be.
Galaxy Tab S8: Reset Network Settings
Unfortunately, things can end up breaking every once in awhile, but that doesn’t mean that you need to completely factory reset the Galaxy Tab S8. Instead, you can try and reset the network settings if you’re experiencing issues with your data connection or even if Bluetooth accessories are causing problems. Here’s how you can reset network settings on the Galaxy Tab S8:
- Open the Settings app on your Galaxy Tab S8.
- In the left-side panel, scroll down and tap General Management.
- On the right side of the screen, tap Reset.
- Tap Reset network settings.
- Tap the Reset settings button to confirm.
- If prompted, enter your PIN or password.
The above steps apply to all three models of the Galaxy Tab S8, so you won’t have to worry about finding different steps based on a different device. As a reminder, if you reset all of the network settings, then you will have to sign back into your Wi-Fi networks, along with pairing any of your Bluetooth accessories with the tablet.
Unfortunately, resetting the network settings doesn’t always mean that the issues and problems are going to be fixed. In the event that this happens to you, your next course of action is to perform a factory data reset. As the name suggests, this completely resets your Galaxy Tab S8 to its factory settings, while also wiping all of the storage clean from your device. On the bright side, the steps for resetting your tablet couldn’t be easier.
- Open the Settings app.
- Scroll down to, and select, General Management.
- Scroll down and tap Reset.
- Tap Factory data reset.
- If prompted, enter your PIN or passcode.
- Tap the button to confirm after reviewing the information provided.
Thanks to the ultra-fast storage used in the Galaxy Tab S8, the process of resetting shouldn’t take too long. Once your tablet is back up and running, you’ll be able to go through the setup process just like you did when you took it out of the box for the first time. Hopefully, this will solve any of those pesky problems that you’ve been dealing with, and fixes your network and Bluetooth connections.
