Samsung A50 keeps disconnecting wifi (whatsapp loses connection) after 5 minutes [Resolved]

My Samsung A50 keeps dropping the wifi (I suspect, Whatsapp web declares that the phone is unreachable). How can I keep it on? I noticed it's exactly five minutes after I press the button.

Please note that I already tried googling, as well as any proposed solution, and I disabled every possible thing that might put the application to sleep. I also noticed that every googling I did refers to options that are not present on the A50 (e.g. "Put wifi to sleep").

At this point I am out of ideas. Help?

I came here to give an answer, but considering that as usual the hive mind of stack exchange decided to just slap downvotes, I'll keep the answer for myself.
