My Pixel 6 Pro keeps turning off WiFi after I wake it from sleep.
1
After waking the Pixel 6 Pro from sleep the WiFi is toggled off and it continues to use my data plan. I can toggle the WiFi back on manually and all works fine. I've performed a factory reset which seemed to have fixed it for about a day but the issue returned. Note, this is not an issue with the WiFi connection itself.

I've tried toggling off "Adaptive connectivity" (this did not fix it). I've tried toggling off "Turn on WiFi automatically" (this did not fix it). I toggle off my data plan and after waking the phone it just says I have no internet connection forever until I toggle WiFi back on.

UPDATE: Woke up one morning and attempted to toggle WiFi back on but nothing happened. The phone could not even scan for WiFi networks in the neighborhood and acted like WiFi was dead. Had to reboot the phone to fix the issue.

UPDATE 2: I contacted support and they authorized an RMA. I am happy to say that after a full day and full night my WiFi connection is going strong. So if you are experiencing a similar issue, I would suggest contacting support for a replacement phone.

The first troubleshooting step should be to test at some other wifi network. Until that is done, yiu really cant say that the problem is in the phone.
 
In almost every case, the problem is actually in the wifi network, not the phone.

Normally I'd agree with you, but I find it odd that the phone disables WiFi completely instead of presenting me with network issues. In fact the WiFi goes strong for hours as long as the phone doesn't go to sleep for an extended period of time.

As an aside, we have multiple android phones connected to the WiFi in this house with none of them experiencing this issue. I've attempted connecting to both the 2.4 GHz network and 5 GHz network and in both cases the issue presents itself after waking from sleep.

New symptom now. After waking up this morning I attempted to toggle the WiFi back on after it was disabled, but after toggling it nothing happened. It didn't even attempt to show me all the available WiFi networks in the neighborhood. It seemed like the WiFi was dead on the phone.

After rebooting the phone the WiFi did come back though.

Turned off adaptive everything, actually did all the 'fixes' found here and on reddit. Wifi still auto toggles off. P6 on January patch (had to downgrade to Nov baseband to use it as a phone). Gonna buy another phone; will keep this as an expensive reminder to self for future.
