What does authentication error mean when I try to connect to my wifi?


You need to input the authentification code which was supplied with your router.

Will not let me connect to wi-fi it is not my wi-fi servce. it just keeps saying authentication problem


It will say Authenticating problem unless you have the passkey to the other WiFi networks. So unless its your WiFi or an open network you won't be able to connect.But you can try rebooting your device.

How do I get wi-fi connection. I have inputted information for the wi-fi it says saved, then when you go to connect it says authentication problem and cannot complete registration.


Hi
To connect to a WiFi system, you may need 3 pieces of information:
A username
A password
An encryption key
Once you have successfully linked to a WiFi access point then your tablet will remember the settings until told to forget them.
A lot of the time you may only need the encryption key, and if the tablet detects a WiFi access point then if you tap on that in wireless settings then it will either connect automatically or ask you for some sort of code - the encryption key. If this is not entered correctly then it will return an authentication problem/error. In order to connect you have to have this code. Also bear n mind that the code may or may not be case sensitive, and that the authentication type for both router and tablet needs to be the same. It is possible that you will only be able to change the authentication type on the Aceess Point / router and not on the tablet.
Cheers

Authentication problem


trying dumbing down the authentication on your wifi router. Try these:
turn off 40mhz wide channels
try wpa instead of wpa2
try tkip instead of aes

if all else fails, try wep.

Authentication problem with wifi


"Authentication Error" usually means when you are clicking on the desired wi-fi network and putting in your password you are making a small error in the password. ChecK:
a - You are putting in the correct CaSe. Most are CaSe SpEcIfIc so if it asks for "F" it means "F" and not "f";
b - You are not leaving any spaces before or after the password (some tablets especially seem to leave spaces.)
c - You are possibly putting in the Router Password. This is useless! you need to out in your Wireless Network KEY.
It came with your ISP letter or on a little card or is printed on the router
in the form of:
Name (SSID) Goodwombat45837
Key: HG56TY78JK88

You would type in HG56TY78JK88

Note hg56ty78jk88 would FAIL, you have put in lower case.

Hope this helps a bit.

I just got my kurio 7s last week and now the wifi wont work. the wifi turns on and its picking up my router even says it has perfect signal i hit connect then it keeps going through this 10 min ****...


If you can click on your wifi and pick "forget" do that and then restart the tablet and try again. If that doesn't work try going to settings and resetting it to factory then it will be like a new one, if you can do it without wifi some tablets wont let you past the wifi screen until you sign on.
