Wifi Password Help

    About a week ago, my wifi setting for a particular wifi that I regularly use stopped remembering the password. Now I have to type in the password EVERY TIME I want to access the Internet via wifi. Previously (and with all of my other regular log in locations), it was all automatic when ever I was close enough to the wifi router. Several other friends do NOT have any issues with this particular residential wifi.... Just me.

    I have tried:
    1. Forgetting the network
    2. Deleting ALL other wifi stored sites for local login
    3. Battery pull
    4. Router and wife power cycle
    5. Scouring the Internet. I see that I'm not alone, but many of the fixes were for rooted devices. I am NOT rooted
    6. App store apps to force auto login when within range. Nothing worked so I deleted them Ann and now.... Here I am begging for help.

    All other auto logins work automatically in my regularly visited sites except this one. Everyone else here seems to have no problem just me.

    Any ideas?

    Maybe you should check the setting of your wifi router. As far as I know, the MAC filter feature may disable your mobile. :(
    Good luck to you.

    Hey! Thanks for the response!!! This is something that recently happened, and since my original post, I have noticed that it has now happened at other sties. I downloaded an app called "Smart WiFi Toggler" and it seems to help but it is not as consistent. I am not able to check the MAC filters at the one location that is causing the most problems. My MAC filter at home is okay, but I noticed that it was not auto logging on yesterday:-(

    Thanks again for the kind response. For a moment there, I was thinking that the SGN3 was a dead phone and that I was the only person who still has one;-)

    Well...I guess it's time to upgrade, but I'll wait for the SGN6 to come out. This phone is still awesome, but support for it is waning.

    I wanted to let those who were watching this thread know that I managed to fix my issue. I scoured the app store for any and all WiFi fixes and I stumbled upon "FXR WiFi fix and rescue". They were honest enough to list that the fix has a success rate (at the time) of 65%. They asked for feedback and I was happy to tell them that their app worked! Even when I tried to delete/forget certain connections, I was not successful on my own. For some reason, the phone would just not allow me to do this. This app did it for me and it was successful. I then grabbed another app called "Smart WiFi Toggler" and it automatically connects me when I am in the vicinity of my regularly used WiFi spots.

    The reason that this was such a pain was because I do not have unlimited data. When ever I would be home or in one of my other regular areas, WiFi would not connect without me having to type in the new PW. I found that I was coming uncomfortably close to my data limits each month (not good) as a result of not realizing that I was on data rather than the expected WiFi.

    I do hope that this helps someone else. The SGN3 is NOT dead yet:)
