Samsung galaxy S4 get Wifi Authentication error

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
Hi,

at the moment, we have two wifi hotspots in our house, I have set them both as close to the same settings as I can on the wireless secuirity tab.




However, when I move closer to the other hotspot, my mobile phone wants to connect to the one that has the best signal strength, but then I loose internet on it with a message that says "Wifi Authentication failed"

I only have to connect manually with the same password and then it works fine, but its a hassle I would rather be without.

Any on how I can get these two to work together or should I assign a new SSID to one of them?

Only thing I can think of off of the top of my head, is to make sure the channels they are using aren't the same as they may be overlapping.

I believe a good rule of thumb is to have them vary by 6 channels? (I might be making the last part up, if someone wants to correct me.)

Edit: Also, make sure that only one device on your network is doing the NAT / DHCP and that your APs are in "Bridge Mode"

Hi,

Only one of them is NAT/DHCP smile.gif

Although, the dd-wrt one is not in Bridge mode, it is in Access point mode, although the Network configuration is bridged.
