      First make sure your that your WiFi is working and its not at fault, you can do that by connecting another device and see if its will browse. If it does then the fault lies with the Galaxy S7, ultimately if my tip from above did not work and nothing else will you can as a last resort backup your files and data and do a hard reset of everything that almost always fixes any issue.
