    Are you using the right type of authentication? Check the settings on your S3 and make sure they match

    If you've had a Nexus phone before and have changed the wifi password (encryption) since, when you restore from your Google backup it may be using the old password. I'm not sure if that's the case but, this happend to me once.

    "forget" the network and start over. Its called troubleshooting, there are lots of things you can rule out here!

    There is this app on the marketplace called WiFi Ace or something. Try that. Its a bit lengthy but it works in the end.

    I had the dame issue with my RaZr in the beginning until I ditched the stock ROM and flashed a custom one...everything fine since then..

    If it works anything like 4.1, go to Settings--Wifi. Make sure wifi on the phone is on. Press and hold the name of the network you want to connect to but can't. It should bring up the option to "forget this network." Select that. Then refresh to see the networks in range, select your network again, and put in your passcode.

    Routers sometimes goof with this kind of stuff in terms of DHCP. The N4 should handle whatever security you have on your network.

    Oddly, I have this error when I'm up in my room where signal is low, but as soon as I get close to my router, the problem goes away and I can connect with full signal. I don't know what causes this, but it's annoying. I'm a Nexus 7 user, by the way.

    This was happening to me at my workplace. I went to advanced settings for my work wi-fi and modified Dynamic IP to Static IP. So far this has worked me and I have yet to disconnect/unauthenticate. Nexus 4 user.

    This is exactly what happens to me as well!! Everything else I connect to WiFi connects fine. Highly annoying!!

    This tablet is running Android ICS. If the wireless you are connecting to is using WPA or WPA2 security you will need to set it to WEP or none for your tablet to work. This is known bug.
    It solved my problem.

    I recently bought the nexus 4 and have been trying every single method to get the Wi-Fi to work-but no such luck. All it states is-'authentication problem'. It's security protected so I changed it to WEP but it's still not working! Please help!

    Make sure you are close to your router when trying to connect, usually low signal causes this problem.

    Try going to WiFi and then menu, might be there. Sorry I dont own a s3, you might have better luck in the s3 forum.

    I am also facing wi-fi authentication issue after upgrading S2 to 4.1.2.

    Once set to static IP , you need to enter an IP there ryt? what IP to enter?
