    Ok. First of all I checked the forum. I couldnt find anyone with a similar problem. So earlier today I hooked up a wifi extender. It has worked great with one exception. My girlfriend's phone will not connect. It simply says authenticating over and over. Now here's how I know its not a repeat thread. We both have the RAZR M, and my phone has worked great with it. We both have the same wifi settings. Also, I thought maybe I had too many devices connected to this, but I disconnected my phone and still nothing.

    Please if you help if you can...Happy Holidays.

    'authenticating' is usually followed by 'obtaining IP address', and only if you're attempting to connect to a secured wifi network. try turning off WEP or WPA security and leave it open and reconnect.

    Authentication errors are usually due to entering an incorrect password. Double-check that you are entering it perfectly including capitals, etc.
