    Hi everyone. I have been having this "authentication error" on my brand new tab for almost 2 weeks now. I was frustrated to the point that i was ready to chunk it out the window. None of my other devices were having problems connecting, and staying connected, to my home wifi. I was determined to figure this out and I spent most of my day talking between the wireless service provider (AT&T), my home internet provider (Centurylink), and Samsung support, and I'm happy to say that my problem is now resolved! The Samsung tech suggested that I had too many devices using my one wireless router. I have a TV, two laptops, and two smartphones connected at any one time, in addition to my tablet BUT they may not all be in use at the same time. I initially thought that was a crazy idea - I should have as many connected as I want, and it shouldn't matter if they are being used or not. Turns out, it DOES matter, at least in my case. I deactivated one smartphone from using my home wifi to use only the AT&T data only, and my tablet now surfs the net and streams netflix video without the first "authentication error". I am thrilled. So easy, but yet so hard! I truly hope this helps someone, because I've been trying to figure this out for days now!!!

    I hope you can shed further light on this issue, we have numerous wifi enabled devices that all work fine at home or on other business and public wifis, but the Galaxy SII (GT-I9100) running Android 4.1.2 is always getting this error on most wifi networks. Now I can't go to every shop, café, camp site, pub and re-programme the routers, so can anybody advise a change that can be made to the phone to resolve this? Thanks in advance... John

    In my case it was MAC address filtering

    I was getting this same error. I use MAC address filtering for wi-fi connections on my router. I was pretty sure that I had added the Galaxy S3, but when I checked it was not in the filter list. I added its MAC address and the connection was restored. I don't think that an android update would change the MAC address, so the error was probably on my part. But the MAC address filtering is one more thing to check that might be causing you problems.
