I have a new Android Tablet, it seems to work okay, but I keep getting "Authentication Problem" when I try to log into the WiFi. I don't have any problems with my laptop or Kindle.
Is this particular device commonlyknown for this problem.

Thank you.

I, too, have an Android that says the same exact thing. I'm starting to think I made a big mistake in getting this kind of tablet. I tried EVERYTHING. I called my wifi carrier (Time Warner Cable) and even had them walk me through the process of connecting, but no luck. Still says Authenticating Problem. Yet, my sons laptop can connect. So I'm starting to think that maybe it's the tablet itself that is the problem. I am DETERMINED to get this tablet connected, though, and when I find the solution, I will come on here and tell all..

Hi Guys, I have had a similar problem with my kindle fire. Even though I put in the correct wifi password, it gives me authentication failed on connect. Assuming that you are putting in the proper password for your wifi, here is how you can reconnect or connect to your wireless.

1) log into your wireless router via the computer using it's device IP address. It is probably written on the back of your router. I.e. for time warner cable the address is "192.168.0.1". A Lynksis router is "192.168.1.1". If you are not sure of the ip address search google for " [name of your router] router admin ip address". To log into your device simply type the ip address in a web browser.

2) make sure wireless security mode setting is set to "wpa/wpa2-psk"

3) If it's not, set it to that setting and click apply

If it's set to wpa/wpa2-psk then it's probably a hardware issue with your router. A hackerish way to get around this is to select WPA, hit apply, and then reset to wpa-wpa2.

Your problems should be fixed from here.

For fixing authentication problem first u must see that you have entered the right password . Actually u have to enter the network key.! :) 
1.Go to wireless connection and search for network key..thats the password..which you will use to use your wifi from ur phone,mobile etc

I have done that by doing simple steps, may be it helps you too..
>> turn off WiFi
>>Switch Airplane Mode on
>>now reconnect WiFi
>>and you will see it connected normally..

Here you go., Don't forget to off Airplane Mode :)
