    ICS wifi "authentication problem" stopping me from connecting to my home network!!

    I have a Transformer TF 101 that just recently updated to ICS but now that I have I can't connect to my home wifi network, I just get a "authentication problem" error over and over.

    I already reset both the TF and the router with no luck.

    Any help would be greatly appreciated, Thanks!

    Welcome to the forum

    Try disabling the security in your router long enough to see if you can get a connection. On the router reset power off for at least 30 seconds before plugging it back in.

    still looking for fix

    Just got this tablet for my daughter. Can't connect to home network.

    Have nosed around this site a bit (was confused about the "Am transferring this to Prime" responses), and can't seem to find answer to question raised above.

    I have no option to enter password for home network. It simply says "authentication problem", and the only options are Cancel, Forget and Connect. When I hit Connect it says I have an Authentication Problem. Does not ask me for password.

    I tried disabling the security on my Airport Extreme, and then I can join, no problem. When I add security again, I am back to the original problem.

    I have downloaded new firmware for router. Utility re-starts it for me, so I've done that, too.

    Forget - use this option when you go to connect to the network it will ask you for the password. Then it will authenticate, then connect. An authentication error may be a mispelled password. Give that a try.

    Now it says that there is "no security" on my home network, that it is "not in range," and gives me only the options to Cancel or Forget. Still no way to enter my password.

    Thanks.

    Thanks.
    Something in your explanation seems to be missing. It displays as no security but won't let you put in your password? Try forgetting then try connecting again. As strange as this sounds, are you certain you're looking at your router and not another one?

    Fixed! "Forgetting" the network one more time gave me an option to enter the password. Thanks very much; I will stop tearing out my already thinning hair.

    I'm having authentication problem message on my tf300t when I tried to connect to a new location. My old location at home has worked since I installed the 300. The 300 say"saved, secured with wpa2" the goes into authenication and comes back with the error. Reset route which connects to my laptop without any problems and still no help.
    Any suggestions?
    Thanks tf300t new owner

    Welcome to the forum cwferg!

    Try long pressing the saved connection, forget. Then add it back and see if that works.
