Hi,

My RCA tablet was not connecting to my Wi-Fi network. Assuming that it was damaged, I took it back to seller and got it exchanged with a new device. However, the issue remains the same.

Please help!

Hi,

I kept getting an authentication error when trying to connect to my WiFi even though I was connected to it till a few days ago.

My other devices were still connected too it. So, I knew it wasn't my router. Here's what helped me:
  • In the WiFi screen, I selected the menu icon.
  • Selected Advanced settings
  • Clicked on WPS push button
  • I pushed the WPS button on the front of my router and it instantly connected


Hopefully this helps someone!

Did the rest of the clients stay connected?
Thanks worked 4 me
I'm on a public library router access and I pushed the WPS push button and it says the WPS failed ....try again in a few minutes ? What else could be the problem. I'm showing a strong signal connection.

Your tablet is trying to connect to your home router.
