Retype Security password

At times the authentication problem originates from the method you type the Wifi network security password. In fact, it can be sometimes subtle to type a security password Wifi on its OnePlus 6. We therefore advise you to try all the following possibilities:

  • Type the code without spaces or hyphens

Restart your box

Check box settings

In cases where none of the previous 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 test if perhaps the system of key is in WPA / WPA2 . In cases where this is not the circumstance, choose this option. Then try to connect your OnePlus 6 again to Wifi. In cases where the authentication trouble continues, we highly recommend that you contact your service provider or a telephone store.
