I see three points:
1. check if the password of the router is the same you have signed in the wifi-account of your tablets - it's typical that a wrong password is prompted with no error message.
2. check if the wifi-protection of your router has the same type (WPA, WPA2) as your tablets use
3. check if the router accepts new wifi-devices, sometimes there is a checkbox "only known devices can access via wifi"

Authentication problem. Reset wifi and tablet. Nothing is working.


An "authentication problem" means that that the wifi does not accept the wifi password that the device is providing, or that its MAC address may be on the exception list, not allowing it to connect. Verify that the tablet is using the proper wifi password for the system you are trying to connect to, and that you are using the same wifi security (WEP/WPA/WPA2) on the tablet that the wifi is using.

My WiFi is up and running and my other devices can connect but my trio tablet says authentication problem, why can't I connect?


I'd make sure that you have configured the correct wireless security type. If your tablet allows both WPA and WPA2, make sure whatever you selected matches the configuration on your WiFi router. Also, the encryption algorithm has to match - AES is the most common but some older routers only support TKIP.

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

I have a Dragon Touch tablet. won't connect to wifi after WEP is entered and accepted/saved.


Are you still using WEP security? Most devices today no longer use WEP as it is inadequate for serious security. Most devices today are using WPA2 security. If you are no using the proper security you will get an authentication error even if the password is correct.
