    Exclamation Wifi issues.... "Authentication Error Occurred" and "incorrect Password"

    So, I have a Samsung Galaxy S3, model number SCH-I535, Andriod version 4.1.1 and before the update. I had no issues what so ever on trying to connect to my wifi. But now, since I got the new update for this phone. I am now unable to connect to my wifi. Keeps saying "Authentication Error Occurred" and "Incorrect Password" even thouth my laptop top connects just fine through my router. Even putting in the same password I've been trying to use for my phone and its allowing me to connect. Roommates phones connect just has fine.

    -Things I've done personnally-
    *Restarted my phone three times, then trying to connect to wifi- didn't work
    *Turned off my phone and waited for 10mins, then trying to connect to wifi- didn't work
    *Took out battery then repeated procedure- didn't work
    *Did factory restore (wiped out the entire phone to factory set up) then tried to connect to wifi again- still didn't work
    *restarted router- didn't work.....

    Still haven't found any solutions on fixing this problem and I'm not the only one with this particular problem.

    Issue 36993 - android - wifi no longer working in ics 4.0.4 - Android - An Open Handset Alliance Project - Google Project Hosting

    There is about 250 posts regarding this issue and still no fixes. If anybody else is experiencing this problem, please post it on this forum.

    This url also talks about android version 4.1.1 as well.
