Google Nexus 5 :: Authentication Error When Connecting To WiFi All Of A Sudden?
Dec 23, 2014
So I have never had problems with my wifi, until yesterday. I realized the wifi was not on when I got a "Data usage warning" from my phone provider.
I looked at the wifi and it was not connected. When I try and connect to my home network (which my husbands phone, my ps3 and my pc are all connected to without issue) it gives me an "authentication error".
I would assume that would be the password or something, but the password is fine.
- tried turning to airplane mode and back
- tried changing it from "auto" to 2.4mghz only as in the troubleshooting guide
- tried turning off always scanning
- tried restarting the router and modem.
Basically I was streaming a video on you tube the other night, until my Nexus 5 froze up. My phone was taking way too long to respond, so I decided to hold the power button until the device shut off, and I held the power button again to turn it back on. (duh) As soon as it turned back on, I was no longer able to connect to my home WIFI. So now whenever I try to connect to our home WiFi, I get an "authentication error" and the WiFi network status just comes up as 'saved" instead of "connected". My mobile Data works fine, it's just my WiFi that isn't working anymore. Did I accidentally fry a component within my Device that allowed me to connect to a WiFi network?
I just bought a Nexus 6 phone recently. I tried connecting to the Wi-Fi where I work but it keeps saying Authentication Problem beside the WiFi name and will not connect. I just updated to Lollipop 5.1.1 thinking this would work but I am still having this issue. I don't want to have to use my data whilst at work all the time!
My Nexus5 phone shuts down all of a sudden without me powering it off. It is happening every now and then. It also happens when I connect my phone via usb to my laptop. Could this be because I'm testing my apps on my phone using Android Studio. Every time i connect the USB it restarts over and over again.
Why my phone all of a sudden has no service even though my account is in good stand?My phone nexus 5 last week stopped working, when I tried to send a message it says "DATA NETWORK UNAVAILABLE" I could`t make a call either it said: "NO SERVICE" I called my provider to troubleshoot the device with no luck. Later that day I stopped at one of the stores they changed my sim card again no luck, so I decide to call google support to troubleshoot but they could`t figure out what was happening. After I exhausted everything I decided to restore the the phone to the factory setting but in vain. My phone is a NEXUS 5 and the android version 5.1 and it`s about 16 months old.

Yesterday around midnight my phone suddenly stopped working. I wasn't using it, it was just sitting on my desk and had been for at least half an hour.
When I boot it, it stays stuck on the boot animation.
Until yesterday it was running a custom built version of CM12.1 (from this thread: [URL] ...
With a ElementalX-N5-4.09 kernel.
Reflashing the ROM Wiping and Reflashing the ROM Wiping and Reflashing the ROM, without ElementalX Wiping and Flashing an older version Wiping and formating of user data too + Reflashing complete reset by doing fastboot oem lock/unlock flashing of the factory image of Android 6
Each time the result is the same. When the phone was still running cyanogen I had adb while it was booting (that's no longer the case) and I saw nothing striking ... it would have one (pc) screen worth of log (logcat) and then nothing it would just stop. I couldn't spot anything in kernel logs either (dmesg/last_kmsg).
The recovery is working fine ... I was able to start an ssh server and use it... it's just android that won't boot.
On my Nokia 5530 I get the message " wlan connection already active.please close all connections" although I am not connected and I can`t connect to the internet. If I want to restore to factory settings it says "please close all connections and calls". The wifi symbol is on top right corner all the time. I don't have the" disconnect wlan" option on the connectivity menu. What is the problem and what should I do? I haven`t upgraded the firmware or anything. It just started to do that.
when i try to connect to college wifi i input the settings required and install certificates because it is wpa2 enterprise and i connect but when i want web browse or open app with wlan it comes up with system error and exclamation mark. how can i fix this.
I keep getting 'Out of range' from my aino while trying to connect to my home wifi (2wire 2701HGV-E). Need help on how to solve this! Also my phone is not detected during the update service via usb-to-computer. It is stuck at the 'connect' page and doesn't move onto 'confirm'.

Since yesterday afternoon getting authentication error on all email account with droid 4. Connection error. [NO mechanism not available] Don't get email notifications, email not updating and won't manually. Was working fine oneverything before then.
I want to configure a blackberry bold 9900 with v7 pack 2290 to access a wifi network with radius server authentification. But when i looking into the security type parameters, i 've not the PEAP option.
WiFi was working fine until 10am this morning, since then i have been unable to connect, when i enter the password to connect, it shows as saved, then shows as 'connecting, followed by 'Authentication problem', there is nothing wrong with the router etc. as work colleagues are using the same WiFi and it's fine for them, i have tried using the Sony PC Companion, it said my phone is up to date, so i done a repair/restore, i am still receiving the message "Authentication problem" when trying to connect to the WiFi.
My Nexus 5 suddenly have problems about the WiFi. The WiFi is not working. If I go to setting , it is saying Turning On WiFi and it stucks there for many days. I already tried many things available online like, cache clear , factory resetting, safe mode etc. But nothing worked. It starts happening after latest update from android
Normally I wouldn't care that I'm connected to WiFi but since the WiFi where I work its terrible and there's so many routers to choose from its killing my battery. Even when I turn it off in my settings it just turns on again.
their N6 on Sprint where Sprint service essentially turns off whenever Wi-Fi is on. This is the only way I've been able to describe my issues with the N6. Whenever I am at home, I am usually on Wi-Fi because it works more reliably than LTE. So whenever someone calls me, the call goes straight to voicemail. I only receive a missed call notification if someone leaves a voicemail. I've been able to test this out with family members where I turn on Wi-Fi, they call me, and the call goes straight to VM. Then, I turn off Wi-Fi, they call me again, and I get the call.
Keeping LTE on all the time (and Wi-Fi off) would not be an issue but for the fact that Sprint's service notoriously sucks inside any building made of concrete (even in Manhattan). I'm not ready to switch providers because I've been grandfathered into a no-throttle unlimited everything plan where I essentially can use 5GB of data each month and pay a reasonable price. I moved to NYC recently and before lived in the D.C. area, where I lived in a house adjacent to a tower. There, I didn't mind keeping Wi-Fi off because I always had great LTE.
This is quite frustrating and it appears to be documented to some effect on Sprint's website (without a fix, of course). Sprint has now reset my network, PRL, and profile; and the only other option appears to be replacing the phone through my insurance. I'm hesitant, though, because I preordered a 6P.
So about a week ago my WiFi just wouldn't work anymore. When I try to turn it on, it stays stuck at "Turning WiFi on". I think I've tried almost anything to make it work again. I've reflashed the factory image 3 time (Android 6.0), I've tried downgrading to Lollipop 5.1.1 but it still wouldn't work. I took it to a GSM Service and they said that there is no hardware problem.
I'm on a 32gb Google Play purchased white Nexus 5, activated on Sprint. I went through a whole charge cycle yesterday with Wi-Fi off, and under battery usage / Wi-Fi / Use Details / Wi-Fi running, it showed "Wi-Fi running" 17 hours. I never even had Wi-Fi turned on once.
I've been playing with it today, turning Wi-Fi on and off, and no matter what, the Wi-Fi usage time matches my phone on time. It seems according to the battery meter my Wi-Fi is always on.
I don't remember the last time Track ID worked on my phone. It says "Authentication Error" after pressing the record button.
I've tried wiping the data in the apps manager. It worked fine in 1.6 and I can't remember if I've ever tried it on 2.1.
SE should really unpack this from their phones and offer it on the market keeping it free for SE users, it's a really great piece of software! but then again it would probably make this "authentication" problem more common for SE users if the phone HAS to autheticate it. Ah well..
Two days ago my yahoo email stopped working and keeps saying "yahoo authentication error" I tried turning off and on my phone and deleting my account then set it up again but still no luck. Any suggestions beside factory reset?
My Nexus 5 has been acting a bit odd lately. So for the last month or so my Nexus 5 has decided it wants to restart itself randomly. Yesterday my phone dialed two people on my recent call log, app tile locations were moved or deleted off my homepage and a random letter email to a random letter email address was sent. Additionally two random downloads titled Servicelogin.html and releases.cfm were downloaded. The strangest thing is that I have a passcode lock on my phone so an accidental **** dial seems unlikely. I was scared I had some insane malware or something so I did a factory data reset and have had my phone off since.
