    Default Nexus 7 unable to connect to tethered wifi off of mobile hotspot

    2012 Nexus 7:
    Android Vers 4.3
    Build JWR66Y

    Droid Bionic - Rooted, running stock tether app

    I'm unable to connect my Nexus 7 to the wifi signal, but I'm able to connect to other signals (such as the one at home or work). The wifi signal works fine for other devices such as laptop etc. Just not the Nexus 7.

    I've tried multiple things from other forums including "Forgetting" the signal and renaming the signal from the phone, but each time it fails to authenticate and connect and just states "saved, secured with WPA2"

    Any other suggestions I'm not considering?

    Not unusual. Both new and old N7 have history of wifi issues. Try turning Airplane on then off and see if it detects it if not try just wifi off then on.. That sometimes works
