Authentication Problem
« on: December 16, 2012, 12:06:46 PM »
Just got my Nexus and can't get past the authentication on either of the routers in the house. On the Wi Fi connection screen it comes up as saved and secure but then just comes up as authenticating problem. Any Hints?? I posted this on the Canadian site also.

First delete the saved WiFi connection on your Nexus 7 by long pressing on the connection name and tapping forget network, then search for networks again and type your password again, just to make sure you have it typed correctly. if you continue to have issues post what type of security your routers are using WEP, WPA, etc.

No more than you or many others would have done, I just happened to have answered first.
