Possible solution for slow WiFi with Galaxy Tab A7 Lite running Android 12.

I just received by new Tab A7 Lite and immediately noticed slow Wifi connectivity.  All my other devices run fine.  I performed an ookla speed test via Chrome, and was only getting 5MB download speeds.  Super sloooow.  Performed some other network checks, but in the end I turned off the "Nearby Device Scanning" option on the tablet and everything got better.  Speed test went up to 40mb.  On the tablet: Settings-->Connections-->More Connection Settings-->Nearby Device Scanning (Turn this off).  Maybe that will help someone before they send the tablet back.  Cheers.
