    Default Connecting to router?

    Hello there. Random problem while traveling I'm visiting my mother in law in Denmark, and my S5 wont connect to her internet router. My ipad and my wife's iPhone find her wifi with no problems, but my s5? No luck at all. Even added manually, it can't be found.

    Any thoughts?

    Thanks in advance.

    Well, that seems quite weird !! Try restarting the router as well as your S5 and also make sure that your router is broadcasting its SSID sometimes, what I use to do is I hide my SSID in order to make my network more hidden, so devices which knows about my wifi network can only connect and see me manually ! So better to look onto those things to....

    If you're not having any problems connecting to any other wifi, it's probably just theirs needs a firmware update. In the past there were some brands that had issues connecting to a variety of android phones. Dlink comes to mind in particular. All that was needed was updating the router's firmware and problem solved. See if you can find out what brand and model wifi router they use and check for a firmware update. Next time you're there, update it for them and see if that takes care of it.

    So the issues is with the router not the phone
