My tablet does not connect to Wi-Fi, it says authentication problem, any ideas?


Authentication problem means that the WIFI router isn't accepting the security password that you are attempting to use. They are case sensitive and must be entered correctly or else the unit will refuse connection. The router may also have your MAC address blocked as this is another security option that can be entered by the router's administrator.

How do I connect to my wifi


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.
Cheers

When I try to connect it says authentication problem


It appears that the wi-fi you are attempting top connect with requires an authentication code. If you are connecting at home, it is the passcode for your router. if a business or pay for service system, you will need an account to connect.

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.

Can not connect to internet keeps saying authentication problem


"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.

Internet not connecting


  • Under settings on the tablet enable the wireless radio.
  • Once enabled you should get a list of available networks, select yours.
  • Enter any password you have.
  • If you get an authentication failed message and you know your password is correct, try disabling security on your network and try again. Some tablets have a problem with security especially those running ICS.
