If a single user within a client is having WiFi problems, it can often be their device's fault. It might be storing old, out of date information or simply need to 'refresh' the network. Two common errors that you might run into are:
- Incorrect Password/Authentication Failure – Double Check the client is inputting the correct details. If the client is connecting to Wi-Fi Secure, reset their password on Connect and retest.
- Password appears to be accepted but there is a ‘spinning’ icon, or the device appears to connect and nothing happens – In this case, please follow the steps to ‘Forget the network’ on the device:
