@Annieg 

Have you tried forgetting the connection on your phone and then rebooting your router before trying to connect again?

I have no affiliation whatsoever with O2 or any subsidiary companies. Comments posted are entirely of my own opinion. This is not Customer Service so we are unable to help with account specific issues.

Currently using:
OnePlus 6 (O2 & Sfr), Z3 Tablet (Three UK), iPhone 8+ (EE)

There is anecdotal talk of a fix on the below Samsung forum:
https://us.community.samsung.com/t5/Galaxy-S20/Samsung-s20-ultra-dropping-WiFi-connection-constantly...
Apparently changing to a 5Ghz WiFi connection resolved on persons problems.
Someone else has reported fixing the issue by manually changing the MAC address of their phone (an alternative WiFi ID number).
Finally someone else set a static IP address and that seemed to fix their issue.
I would also check if there is an update due for the phone and the router in case the issue is at that end.
