From time to time, the Lenovo Tab 2 displays the Authentication Problem message when you try to connect to a Wi-Fi network. This sort of error message can potentially originate from a lot of places. So, so that youre able to connect properly to the Wifi network with your Lenovo Tab 2, we decided to write this guide. So we will see together what to do and where to look to solve this problem of Wifi authentication. We will see at 1st what you must do on the Lenovo Tab 2. Finally, we will see what it can be important to do and check on your Wifi box.
How to proceed when the Lenovo Tab 2 has an authentication problem on the Wifi network
Forget the Wifi network on your Lenovo Tab 2
If perhaps the Wi-Fi network to which you want to connect has been changed since your last authentication, your Lenovo Tab 2 may display the text: Authentication or authentication error . If perhaps the problem comes from there, the solution is quite simple. Just forget about the Wifi network in your Lenovo Tab 2. To achieve this, go to the settings of the Wifi network and keep pressed on the network in question. You will then have the option to choose the option: Forget this network . Once it’s done, youre able to try again to connect to the Wifi network. If perhaps the problem is not fixed, go to the next step.
Press the box button
Whether your box is Orange, Bouygues Telecom, SFR or Numéricable, it may happen to have a problem of authentication Wifi on the Lenovo Tab 2 because the box is not in Synchronization mode . If you would like to activate the synchronization mode of your box, it can be incredibly basic. You should find a synchronization button to press. When ever this is done, a light will normally start blinking. You can then try to reconnect to the Wifi network with your Lenovo Tab 2. If perhaps it still does not function, go to the next trick.
Retype Security password
From time to time the authentication problem comes from the technique you type the Wifi network security password. In truth, it can be sometimes subtle to type a security password Wifi on its Lenovo Tab 2. We therefore advise you to try all the following possibilities:
- Type the code without spaces or hyphens
- Type the security password in uppercase
- Type the security password in lowercase
Restart your box
As in lots of laptop problems, the solution is sometimes incredibly simple. In truth, 80% of the laptop problems are solved by restarting the machine. We therefore recommend you to restart your box and your Lenovo Tab 2. After that try to reconnect with your Lenovo Tab 2.
Check box settings
If perhaps none of the prior answers did function, the problem may be found to be on the box of your provider. It will therefore be important to go in the parameters of the box and to check if perhaps the system of key is in WPA / WPA2 . If perhaps this is not the case, choose this option. After that try to connect your Lenovo Tab 2 again to Wifi. If perhaps the authentication problem continues, we highly recommend that you contact your service provider or a telephone store.
