Is this an older tablet by any chance? Some wifi cards on older tablets will not support newer security protocols like WPA-PSK without a software update. An authentication problem can also be caused by mis-typing the key or passphrase for your network, or by having chosen the wrong type of security protocol when asked to join a network. Try deleting the network connection you have already tried, and then rebooting your tablet and let it discover the network again. Make sure you pick the right type of network security protocol for the connection when you try to connect and recheck the key/passphrase after you type it before hitting 'connect'.

Here's How:

  1. Click the Start menu button on the Windows taskbar.

  2. Click Run... on this menu.

  3. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'cmd' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears. A command prompt window appears on the screen.

  4. Type 'ipconfig' (without the quotes) to view the status of the computer's IP address(es).

  5. If the computer is holding a current IP address, type 'ipconfig /release' to let go of the address.

  6. Type 'ipconfig /renew' to obtain a new IP address (whether or not the computer is holding a current address).
Tips:
  1. If it is not necessary to view the current IP addresses on a computer, simply type 'ipconfig /release' or 'ipconfig /renew' (without the quotes) in the text box that appears in Step 3.

  2. To bring a computer back onto the network after moving it to a different location, or experiencing an unexpected outage, first release, then renew the IP address. Computers on DHCP networks often (but not always) re-establish network connectivity automatically.

You need to remove all your existing preferred wireless connection from your Network and sharing Center by clicking the manage wireless networks and removing each one by right-clicking each and select remove.

In xp, open view available networks and click the change advanced settings and remove all existing preferred networks then try to connect again to the wireless network you're trying to connect.

Yes in that case it is your router. You need to adjust your setting, could be a web filtering, client filtering, or even time limit filtering that has been turn on. Check your router settings.

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.

The issue isn't with the tablet, it is something in your Wifi...there are a number of things that it could be, try simply rebooting your router, that would be the easiest thing to try. If that doesn't work, try switching your tablet to "airplane mode" , and then try to connect...
