Question about ASUS Google Nexus 7 Tablet

1 Answer

Nexus 7, Android ver 6.0.1; can't authenticate my wifi; can see the ssid; tries to authenticate & shows "authentication prob." Also the wifi strength symbol shows blank.

I would like the remove the ssid entry then try to reconnect, but can't figure out how to do this. Tried the usual router reboots & factory reset; reboots of nexus, etc. Is A factory reset of nexus next?? This all worked fine prior to And ver 6.0.1

    Please disregard. Nexus didn't like the routers WPS-PSA 'TKIP', it works on the WPA-PSA 'AES' protocol

Reads like you've got a faulty wifi module on the Nexus. Have you got warranty?

    Thanks for your response. What I found after experimenting with the routers security settings is that the Nexus didn't like the specific WPA-PSK "TKIP" protocol. When I changed this to WPA-PSK "AES", Nexus authenticated immediately. The Nexus has been quite reliable. The android OS doesn't let you peek under the covers to try to chase issues. All help is 'on-line' which is UA if you can't connect.. Again, Thanks. Jim

I assume you're using a secure Wifi connection with a password and it seems like that authentication is not working. You could try using an open wifi access point to eliminate the possibility of this authentication issue.

Authentication problem with wifi


"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.

Maybe try going to the router settings and changing the security settings. See if turning off wifi password solves the problem then turn it back on.
