My home wifi works fine with all devices in the home. Desktop PC, laptop, tablet, two other phones, but an Xperia L1 I was given won't connect. I open the router, put in the password and 'authenticating' is indicated. Then 'saved' appears. But then authentication problem' is indicated, and It doesn't connect. I did a 'network reset' but no luck. Any ideas?

Re: Sony Xperia L1 won't connect to home wifi
Great facts told (home wifi works) nobody every says that and bravo to you, nice. so you do use proper credentials to log-in , SSID WPA1 pass phrase? or use PIN or USing WPS? many modern devices now ban WPS and or PIN./ my new router has no PWS or worse PIN, it is deemed risky now..
no router told, is it under 10 years old? make model is what? you do know very old routers fail on newer devices (and the reverse) Xperia L1 means what oops a phone posted to PCs/ Sony Xperia L1 GSM cell phone fails. via Wi-Fi 802.11 a/b/g/n, Wi-Fi Direct, hotspotas old as 2017 made, new, so 5 years max. so is not old phone. i just read you manual and it covers WPS and PIN but fails to show normal manual wifi setup, how lame is that?, for sure today. example in a real; phone or PC we click find wifi in your area and you see 10 more more SSIDs and you see yours pretending me is FIDO123. (only you know this) so you click it and enter the passphase and it works.
problems are this. your router does not allow wpa2. level and phone mandates it. your router new has no WPS/PIN now. some ended only PIN use it is so dangerous. or not knowing your wifi credentials at all.
what router is there, make and model is it owned by your or the service provider if not owned ask them for your credentials if is owned you set them as you want. (settings inside router)

If you've never synced your device with iTunes, or haven't set up Find My iPhone, you'll need to put your device in recovery mode. Then you'll restore your device as new or from a backup.
This will erase the device and its passcode.
1.Disconnect all cables from your device.
2.Hold down the Sleep/Wake button, then "slide to power off" to turn off your device.
3.Press and hold the Home button and plug the device into your computer. If your device doesn't turn on automatically, turn it on. Don't release the Home button.
4.Continue holding the Home button until you see the Connect to iTunes screen.
5.If iTunes doesn't open automatically, open it. iTunes will alert you that it has detected a device in recovery mode.
6.Click OK. Then restore the device.
If your device doesn't go into recovery mode, try steps 1-4 again.
I hope this helps
Ok that is pretty simple. You can search for connectify version 3.3 or lower on internet and install it on your computer. In sharing you can use your active internet connection(Datacard as you have it). Then finally start your hotspot(wifi access point) here you can turn on your phone's wifi and get connected to the same. Hope it helps. :)
Goto wifi settings of your Sony Ericsson X8 Android Mobile press menu button and select "Advanced" Disable the "Use Static IP" (please be confirmed that DHCP server runs on your router) Courtesy: [email protected]
Just had same problems with my brand new Xperia Mini Pro and old WRT54G ver 5. Every time I connected with WiFi the router restarted (once it returned to factory settings). I updated the router firmware to latest version (1.00.6 to 1.02.8) and after this it works fine.
