Default Problem to connect to a Wifi network (WPA/WPA2 PSK)

hello all,

i'm having some trouble to connect to a specific wifi network, when i set the password and tap connect the screen returns to the wifi settings and a message "unable to save the network" is shown.
can anyone help me? i don't know if this is happening because of the long password (64 characters)
it's the network from my work, so i don't have access to its configuration

thanks

I don't know if this is the same issue I'm having but when I try to connect to my router after inputting the password (WPA/WPA2 PSK). It keeps scanning but says disabled each time after it fails and shows as disconnected on the main on/off wifi checkbox.

As it's a work wifi network, you may find that they have mac address filtering enabled.

If this is the case then you would have to see admin and provide them with the mac address for your S3's wifi adapter for them to add it to their access list, however, I'm not entirely convinced they would oblige your request unless you have a very valid reason to be using your work network.
