Do you connect your PC to router in an administrator role using web browser? Or do you connect some device to Wi-Fi network?
Administrator role: You need to have correct login name and password for admin access. Search in manual or ask Google for default login name and password of your router type. If non-default password is set in the router then you must reset router setting and erase its settings to default (factory) status. You will lose all router configuration but default password is back.
Wi-Fi client role: There are more possibilities why authentication fails in wireless communication. Mentioned error message describes what kind of problem occurred.
(a) A password you put to client device does not match the wireless network password which is set in router. Your computer, tablet or smartphone WI-Fi interface must have exactly same password as WI-Fi network which is transmitted from router. Check and compare passwords on both sides, in client device and in router.
(b) Client Wi-Fi interface security (encryption) mode differs from Wi-Fi network encryption used in router. But the same mode must be set on both sides (client and router) for successful connection.
Encryption modes are
WPA2 PSK ("home")
No encryption (open)
Higher position - better security. Enterprise Wi-Fi modes require security devices like authentication servers, certification authorities etc. They are not used in home networks usually.
According to connection of wi-fi and stc modem you must configure the wi-fi access point and must provide the password wi-fi access point is connecting through it.Then you will be able to connect modem to it.
Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, iPod touch will scan for Wi-Fi networks and show a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show a lock icon () next to them.
Option to manually enter your Wi-Fi network name/SSID (if the Wi-Fi network is configured not to broadcast or be displayed to the public). If necessary, enter the password to join.
When iPod touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon () in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
Turn Wi-Fi on or off. Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on or off.
Set iPod touch to ask if you want to join a new Wi-Fi network. When you are trying to access the Internet, by using Safari or YouTube for example, and you are not in range of a Wi-Fi network you have previously used, this option tells iPod touch to look for another network. iPod touch will display a list of all available Wi-Fi networks that you can choose from. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon ().
If "Ask to Join Networks" is turned off, you must manually join a network to connect to the Internet when a previously used network is unavailable.
Choose Wi-Fi and turn "Ask to Join Networks" on or off. If you turn "Ask to Join Networks" off, you must join new networks manually.
Join a Wi-Fi network manually. Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPod touch detects networks in range, then choose a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon.
Make iPod touch forget a network, so that the device doesn't join it automatically. Choose Wi-Fi and tap the arrow () next to a network you've joined before. Then tap "Forget this Network."
Connect to a closed Wi-Fi network (an available Wi-Fi network that isn't shown in the list of scanned networks). Choose Wi-Fi, then tap Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, choose Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password. You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network. Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. Ask the network administrator which settings to use.
Adjust settings to connect to a Wi-Fi network Choose Wi-Fi, then tap the arrow () next to a network.
You need to reset your router to defaults then configure it again then it will work fine. For that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router. Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings. Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router. Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap
You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.
Please tell what is your Wi-Fi LED status. what channel count you configured inside the configuration of router. Please be sure that your wi-fi signal is transmitting or the device is able to receive the wi-fi signal.And please tell what router you using as host and what device you using as receiver. Thanks for subscribing Fixya... All the best
Physically connecting it to the router will allow internet access, but if you're trying to connect wirelessly and don't know the security key you can try logging onto the web interface from the connected computer and reset the key.
