PROBLEM: iPhone not connecting to Wifi

Post by LadyTevar » 2018-03-30 04:10pm

Can someone help me?

I have a local wifi hub to support all the devices in the house. The password has not been changed since Nitram set it years ago. All the devices that I gave password access to are connecting without problem, except suddenly the iPhone can't connect.

The iPhone had been connected prior. It had been one of the first devices given password access to the wifi. Now, however, I'm getting "Password Incorrect" messages when I try to connect. It absolutely will not accept the password saved in memory, nor will it accept what I know the password should be. (Unless I forgot what the password was, which is possible).

My laptop is having no problems connecting to the wifi, so it's obviously remembering the password. However, I have no clue where that password is stored. If I can find the password, I can (hopefully) correct whatever fuckup the iPhone is having with the Wifi by manually entering the correct password.

Laptop is running Win10, if that helps.

Me: Nope, that's why I have you around to tell me.
Nitram: You -are- beautiful. Anyone tries to tell you otherwise kill them.

Try resetting your network settings. On most Iphones it'll be something like "Settings - General - Reset - Reset Network Settings"

You're welcome - I knew my blossoming career in phone sales had not been wasted :P
