The Samsung Galaxy S4 has acknowledged issues connecting to D-Link routers

Is your Samsung Galaxy S4 having some issues connecting to Wi-Fi networks? Well, you're not going crazy, as Samsung has confirmed that there is an issue with some D-Link routers and a fix should be on the way. 

We've heard some sporadic issues about problems with the Samsung Galaxy S4 but most were centered around display or battery issues. Along with being extremely annoying, this Wi-Fi issue with the Samsung Galaxy S4 could be a major pain if you're hoping to stay under your data cap by using Wi-Fi. 

"This is a problem caused by firmware stored on a specific access point in D-Link routers. Customers should update their firmware to the latest version or reboot the access point," a Samsung spokeswoman told ZDNet.

Hopefully, this Samsung Galaxy S4 problem is a minor issue that won't impact many users out there because we'd hate for a few minor bugs to detract from what is an outstanding smartphone. Seriously, the Samsung Galaxy S4 is one of the best smartphones ever created. 

"The Samsung Galaxy S4 is a great smartphone. Its build quality is good, the screen is excellent and the camera is better than most smartphone cameras, too," we wrote in our full review. "Battery life is great, Samsung’s added dozens of new features and its Samsung Hub are all very excellent additions to the device. Will this be a ridiculously popular and another best-selling device from Samsung? You bet."

The Samsung Galaxy S4 is now available for most of the major carriers for roughly $199 with a new contract. Verizon seems to be a laggard but it will be offering the Samsung Galaxy S4 in stores starting May 23
