Wi-Fi password no longer remembered?

Dear all,

I experience the sudden and strange problem that my FP1 no longer remembers the provided password of some of my latest Wi-Fi networks. I have never experienced this problem before.

Has anyone else had this before?



It could be that there’s a problem with the file that stores the passwords (wpa_supplicant.conf). Moving it (so the system creates a new one) sometimes solves these issues. You’ll need adb for a root-enabled file manager to do this, see this post for details. Note that moving/deleting the file will cause the system to forget previously entered Wifi passwords. Alternatively, some wifi password managers may also correct any issues with this file.

Thanks for the crucial hint, Johannes!

Installing WiFi Connection Manager and running the application did solve my problem.

Curiously, I didn’t know there was a limit to the number of existing Wi-Fi connections.
