    Looks like you've stored the wrong credentials on your S3. Try to remove the network from your WiFi list, and add it again. Does that work? If not, can you check logcat? – Izzy Apr 21 '13 at 13:18
  • Also make sure that your wifi router doesn't have a maximum connections setting, you could also try making it an open network and see if it works then. – John Apr 21 '13 at 18:45
  • Also make sure you don't have MAC address filtering enabled. – Trebor Rude Apr 24 '13 at 14:00
  1. Forget the Wifi Network you are trying to connect to from your mobile.
  2. Turn Off your Router & Turn it ON.
  3. Try connecting to this Wifi Network again

For other users than asker: First, try if other devices have the same problem.

If not, then simply:

  • Disable and re-enable connection. (I know, restarting is against Linux philosophy)
  • Delete the WiFi network from your list.
  • Re-add the WiFi network. It is possible that some settings were messed up, or that a WiFi configuration has changed.
