Had same problem - said signal weak although strong on other devices, and hung on authenticating.
Cordless phone on base unit was beside wireless router. Moved unit and turned off phone. Problem disappeared, and signal showed strong.

My monther's issue was because her ISP's (Bell) router, home hub 3000, comes default with the 2.4G and 5G SSID named the same with the same password. So her 2.4G was on a Band that was super weak, like 30%, but her 5G was at 90%. This was causing her wifi connections to use 5G as it was more available. Problem with the kindle is that it is limited to use the 1 - 11 channels / 2.4G only. I resolved this by going to the routers config (192.168.2.1) and changing the SSID from Bell553 to Foxtrot. Then i changed the 5G SSID to Foxtrox-5G and made different passwords for both. Rebooted the router and the kindle was able to connect to the 2.4G network.

SOURCE: I have the Archos 101

I had the same problem with my third Archos 101 (I've had two replacements to the first one I bought in June 2011). I just got the third one two days ago and it wouldn't connect to my WiFi like the previous two would. I had to add the 101's MAC address to my router's setup and now I'm connecting to the Internet. Alternatively, if your cell phone supports tethering (my HTC Tilt does) you can tether your 101 to access the Internet through your phone. Mine is working well that way....for now.

How to connect to internet doesnt recognize router password


Are you sure of Wifi password is correct?
if so, 1st; try restarting your ipad by holding down power/sleep button untill it show "Slide to shut down" leave it off for 10 seconds & then re-open it.enter the Wifi -password, sometimes this step works.

2nd solution ; try resetting your iPad network settings, it will not affect your ipad in any thing except it will forget all entered passwords for any wifi you have already connected before. go to General from Setting, choose resett, and inside only reset network setting, shut down ipad & try to connect to the wifi again. Hope this solution work for you. Also you may try shutting down & opening your router again after 10 seconds while off. Good Luck.

Will not let me connect to wi-fi it is not my wi-fi servce. it just keeps saying authentication problem


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.

Check your wifi password correctly. If you are the owner of the wifi router you are connecting try to press the refresh icon button located on the side of your router.

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...

My tablet is saying i am offline and will not connect to Wi-fi


Firstly Check if your WIFI router is working by accessing the WIFI connection from another computer, tablet or phone.

If it does, then use the same WiFi connection settings that it has on your ARCHOS.

You could also try connecting your ARCHOS to a friend's WiFi network and if this works, change your access point parameters to similar ones.

OTHER TROUBLESHOOTING OPTIONS:
1. Check your WiFi router/modem documentation to see if it has a pairing button that needs to be pressed. Some modems have such a button that must be pressed the very first time you try to make a WiFi connection with a new device.

2. If you have to enter a password (a security code of type WEP or WPA) be very careful that you do not confuse a 1 and I (one and letter "I"), a 0 and O (zero and letter "O"), or U and V. These are common mistakes.

3. When entering a security code for your WiFi access, check the box "Show Password" which will allow you to see exactly what you are typing in. This will avoid any mistakes.

4. Some access points use what is known as MAC filtering. That means, the WiFi access point has a list of access numbers (every hardware device has a unique MAC number) which are the only ones allowed to access to the WiFi point. The person managing the WiFi modem/router should shut off this MAC filtering system to see if this solves the problem. It is recommended to shut off MAC filtering in general as this is now known to be an outdated and ineffective system for WiFi security. If you must use it, you can find your device's specific MAC address by going to Settings >Wireless & Networks > Wi-Fi settings > Menu > Advanced. It will look something like 00:16:dc:5e:9e:39.

5. Try temporarily shutting off the encryption system of your WiFi router/modem to see if the problem has to do with the encryption system you are using. The preferred encryption system is the WPA2.

Authentication problem


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