Galaxy S3 Authentication Error

I am getting an authentication error whenever I try to log onto my home wifi.  I have laptop, ipad, etc connected to this network just fine.  Can you please advise.  Thank you

Hi

Try going to settings>settings and change `use packet data` to off.

I do not see any tab for "use packet data"  Under Settings I have Wireless and Networks which has sub folders wi-fi, bluetooth and data usage for example.   I do not see use packet data under any of these tabs.  Thank you.

Tried this fix from another forum.  Did not work.  Think it is a seperate issue.  Thank you.

Sorry IGL, Go to Settings - Wireless & Networks - Mobile Network and ensure that Enable Always-on Mobile Data is ticked first.

Are you able to use the internet outside of wifi?

Have you tested wifi outside of your home?
