Re: laptop & android authentication problem

Check your wifi security settings. If it is set to WPA Auto, try changing it to WPA2 PSU (AES) instead.

Re: laptop & android authentication problem

Hi Kannan1

 

Welcome to the community and thanks for posting.

 

Sorry to read that you are having an issue with your wireless connection.

 

Does the connection drop on both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz or is it just the one?

You can change the wireless channel to improve the connection?

Also try to change the security as Argy mentioned.

 

Let us know how you get on

Sam

Re: laptop & android authentication problem

Hi Kannan1,

Thanks for trying the advice offered, though sorry it didn't help.

Would you do one further thing please - restore your Hub to factory settings? If that doesn't help post an update on here and we'll see what else we can do for youSmiley Happy

Re: laptop & android authentication problem

Hello Jen_A I did factory reset before and I did today again all the setting go back default but still I have 2.4 GHz problems for connecting both android and laptop. I try so many trouble shoot change IP address manually and renew and reset IP, and try to manually connected, Change power management , wireless channel change, wifi security settings change. But still the wifi not connected when I Switch off and on when I go out and come back home. the laptop on the network connection keep saying attempting to authenticate and connection secured and android said authentication problem. Once reboot or reset the router both or connected straight away.

Re: laptop & android authentication problem

Hi Kannan1,

Thanks for trying that, though sorry it didn't help.

I think the next obvious step to take is to replace your existing Hub. So I've ordered a new one, free of charge, for you. It should be an updated model and it will be interesting to see how it performs so keep me updated Smiley Happy

Here are the details:

  • The new Hub should arrive within the next few days.
  • The courier, Yodel, will leave contact details should re-delivery arrangements be required.
  • A text, advising of the ETA, will be sent the day prior to delivery, to the mobile number listed on our systems.
  • Full setup & activation instructions will be included.

Look forward to hearing from you Smiley Happy
