    I live in shared accommodation and therefore am not in charge of the WIFI so can't call the provider which I imagine is the problem. Just had a text from the guy who is in charge who says he's called the provider who say there is no problem.

    I can see the network on both my phone (saved/secured but not connected) and laptop (can't connect) but can't connect to the network on either device. Tried forgetting the network on the phone and reconnecting, still no joy. Normally if the internet is down the connection is still/can still be active. Any idea on possibly why I can't connect to the network and thoughts on the problem/potential solution?

    Edit - can't check the connection by Ethernet as the router is out of the way and I don't have a cable.

    Is everybody's wifi working? You need to rule out what it isn't. Then you'll find the answer.

    Apparently it is working for others.

    Tried. No joy.

    Are your phone and laptop turned on ? I find this helps with connection.

    If you can't connect with either phone or lappy but everyone elses is working then you have the problem. Try re-entering passwords and reboot both devices.

    Done both. Weird that I would wake up and both devices would be kicked off unable to reconnect. And no, somebody hasn't blocked my access.

    what's the error you're getting?

    This is my other thought.

    Saved/secured but not connecting and no error showing.

    do you have anyone way of getting onto the routers GUI...?

    If I can't connect then no.

    by not connecting, do you mean the wifi isnt connected, or the wifi has connected but you cannot get to the internet?

    are you able to see if the device is getting an ip address from the router?

    Yep.
    Those are the first questions that need answering

    BTW - I wonder if OP is paying anything toward the shared service.

    I am unable to connect to the network/wifi. So no Internet either.

    Bills all included. Not stealing.

    I am not formatting the phone and the laptop. Something else is going on here.

    I am unable to get a connection so can't use those methods.

    are you able to connect to the wifi from any other locations in the building?

    i presume you've switched the devices off & on?

    is the phone an iPhone?
