Wi-Fi Authentication Error
Okay, I'm having the same problem as everyone else. When I got this phone about a month ago, it worked like a charm. Then I started to have WiFi authentication error notices when I tried to connect to my home WiFi. Finally assuming it was my router I went out and bought a new one. D-Link DIR-655. STILL having the same issue. Went into the security settings and finally got it to recognize my Samsung on the web but it STILL won't connect. I have reset router, reset my phone and STILL cannot connect. Is this thing a POS or what?

Same issue as everyone else ?
I don't have this.
I've read perhaps 1/2 dozen threads on here about something similar but that's hardly 'everyone else'.
Few things you can do to rule out phone/router.
1) You've already done this and connected to a different router which suggests your phone but you might want to confirm this by seeing how it behaves on other wifi networks to rule out your own network settings. If you can connect on other networks (macdonalds, starbucks, friends etc) but not your own then its got to be a problem with how your own network is configured.
2) You said everything worked fine for a while then things started to go wrong about a month ago. So what happened a month ago ? Did you apply any firmware updates ? What apps have you downloaded in the last month. Can you remove those apps and see if connectivity returns? If so then reinstall each app one by one until it stops working again.
3) Just for the hell of it, try removing all security on your router just to see if you can connect.

Setting >>> wifi Turn on and click >> click on your wifi name >> click forget >> turn phone off >>> go to your router and reset it ( disconnect power ,wait couple of minutes and plug power back and wait till router is idle ) >>> start your phone >> configure your connection again >> restart phone ...
