Hi, The basic is: 1. On your home screen, click on the bottom right "menu" button. 2. Got to the 1st screen , where the little gear icon for "settings" is at the bottom right corner. Open "Settings" 3. Click on "application settings" 4. Click on "Browser profiles" 5. In this screen you'll find all your connections, including the Wifi connection you created. 6. If you click on the red double arrow beside the connection, you can edit the details.
Enjoy :) Ed

Authentication problem

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

If the authentication password is legal and correct; you would connect. The only way a connection fails is if the password has been changed or you are not the administrator.
Contact the Router manufacturer for details on how to reset the system.

the wifi password is often the serial number of the router unless there is a label underneath it telling you what it is. if not, you may have to contact your internet provider for the details.

check your wifi settings by turning on your wifi, instead of selecting wpa or wpe, select infrastructure and select none for password. try also dragging your wifi home network to your phone wifi icon. and check.

Whenever i connect via wifi, it always says "authentication failed"

Yeah, they confirmed that they have some problem on some wifi authentication especially when your AP is configured to WPA-PSK (TKIP or AES).

you can only connect wifi with open, shared, WEP 64 and 128bit authentication and WPA/WPA2. Samsung still dont have any solution to this big issue. Been a lot lately to customer service in plaza sing, talked to the manager a lot with this problem,
still NO SOLUTION. You can't even have a full refund, no change model.

Im connecting to my home WI fi and it says authentication failed

You will be asked for a password only if you are connecting to a password protected WiFi network.You can set a password for your Home WiFi modem and after that you have to enter the password whenever you try to connect.
