Intermittent wifi unsuccessful with excellent signal and right password
Every so often my Galaxy S refuses to connect to my home wifi. I know the password is correct because it does work the rest of the time. It also happens even right next to the router with excellent signal strength showing.
I go to Wireless and network > Wi-Fi settings and click my network.
It responds Connect to...
I click on Connect.
It goes away and thinks about it using the 'remembered' password.
Eventually it somes back saying 'The network password you typed is not correct. Please try again.'
But I know the password is right because it worked earlier and I haven't re-entered it in the meantime.
As I type this it has finally connected after twenty of more repetitions of the above sequence. It didn't re-enter the password and there's currently 'good' signal strength. What I did do was put it on charge and enable the option for the screen not to sleep but there was plenty of time.
I'm using WPA/WPA2 PSK with a Netgear WGR614v9.
Anyone else have the same or any suggestions?
