Unable to connect to my home wireless network

- It depends upon which password is being used when the wifi connection on the tablet is being set up. If the Windows log-on password is used, the wifi connection setup has not been completed. When one tries to modify the connection setup, it will show (unchanged) against Password. This is because the Home Networking Router WEP Key is to be input as the password, not the windows log-on password.
I too had the same problem. My Home NW SSID would show up with full signal strength but would drop to negligible when I set up using the logon password. The wifi option would show "Obtaining IP address..." but would never connect. It would connect if I did not enable the Wireless Network Security in the "Configure the Wireless Network" screen of the Home Network but would again drop the moment this option was enabled. I realized that the password being required was the WEP key as is usually required when setting up new devices/computers on the home network.
i tried that but it still saying "saved, secured"
Please give a try and let me know. It should work fine and08-21-2013 11:18 PM
- I was having this issue with my Vivid. It would attempt to obtain an IP address and fail over and over.
I tried rebooting and resetting everything based on the worthless worthless suggestions here and nothing changed, so I started thinking for myself.
I knew AT&T would likely figure out a simple way to toggle unsuspecting users to back to their network so they can charge them as much as possible based on the limits they now have on most calling plans.
So, I approached it from that most calling plans, so I approached it from that angle...
I'm now connected to my network with no help from this forum.
What I figured out is that if I go into my phone's main SETTINGS, and disconnect (turn off) my MOBILE NETWORK (that's the AT&T network that I would like to keep from using when I am at home) and then turn ON the Wi-Fi function.
Once my network has been found by my phone and I enter my password..... *****BAM!!!***** IT WORKS!!!!
The little Wi-Fi icon then comes to life at the top of my phone's main screen and I'm surfing the web across my network. YAY!!!!
All people have to remember to do is turn off the WiFi (to conserve battery power) when they leave their house and turn the MOBILE NETWORK back on so they can communicate when they are out and about.
Now why am I the only one to find this solution and post it here?????

Since you mention a WPA problem, I will assume for now that you are trying to connect to a wifi network. If this is the case, is it your home network, or one elsewhere (like at work or at a cafe)? If you're at home, first try rebooting your router by unplugging its power, waiting 10 seconds, then plugging it back in. Wait another 10-15 seconds for the connection to reestablish. If this still doesn't work, then you probably have to modify your router's security settings. This requires you to log into the router using your computer's browser. It would be important to know the make and model of your router. If you don't have the manual, then you can usually look it up on the web.12-04-2013 05:40 PM
- Thanks for the Solution!
I also faced the problem. It says connecting for a long time and then gives a message saying "Network turned off. poor connection".
I tried with WEP key instead of password and it connected.
How do you get WEP Key :
Try from your laptop or PC.
1) Open Network and sharing center.
2) Click on the link of your wireless network connection
3) Click on wireless properties
4) Click on Security tab
5) Take the Network Security Key and type in your phone for password while connecting to network
If you do not see any numbers here, select the checkbox "Show characters"12-28-2013 04:04 AM
- this is a posting i did for another site but do me a favor and go over what i wrote it just might help..............................I as well have the stealth trio 10.1 and i as well kept getting dropped off my wifi so i connected my trio to my computer and kept usb off then i had to go in to my router settings go to wifi protected set up and then i had to go to my trio go to settings and then go to wifi and then there is three little grey dots on the top right corner put your finger on the tree squares you see and slide your finger down you will see three options scan,.............. wps pin entry,............... advanced, you want to press on ..........wps pin entry.......... and you will see an 8 digit pin after obtaining that pin go to your wifi security on your router page and put those numbers in the empty box and then press enroll and just below that you will see a button that says start pbc press on the pbc button and your trio should now say connecting to wifi and it will tell you if you succeeded in connecting your device........... .this is also known as pushing the wifi. let me be clear on one thing my router is a Belkin router so if you router is a different type of router you setting my be different so don`t forget to call tech support for your router if you are having trouble with this set up it`s worth the effort.01-12-2014 02:03 AM
- It took me awhile but I also figured out the whole turn off the data, turn on the wi-fi. Unfortunately, today when I came home and turned off my data, turned on my wi-fi, my ASUS ZENFONE2 keeps saying "authentication problem" and refuses to connect to my wi-fi. I tried re-connecting using the WPS button on my router- says it's connected and then disconnects when I try to use the internet. I unplugged my router then plugged it back in to reset it.... didn't fix the problem. I re-started my phone, then I completely turned off and left alone for about 30 min. turned on and tried all over again- won't connect. The last time this happened it took me 3 full days to reconnect to my internet. I agree, it has to be AT&T toggling users back and forth- or there's a serious glitch with the Android systems. Does anyone have a 100% work around to prevent this problem in the future?10-08-2016 12:45 AM
