Home wifi Login Issue

Trying to login into home wifi using my iphone - says incorrect password. I am using correct password. All my other devices are working fine. It used to work fine on this phone also but I had to reset phone, but Xfinity public wifi/hotspot continues to work fine (had to do nothing after phone reset).

 

Tried the usual trouble shooting - resetting router (power down), forget network on phone, rebooting iphone, etc - nothing works.

 

How do I fix this?

Random thought; maybe a case-sensitive issue?  Check your passphrase on My Account.

Are you inputting the exact same password that is being used on the devices that do connect ?

All my other devices are (were) alreday connected - they continue to work fine. So I would conclude the password did not (magically) change - I would think that should be the wifi behavior.

Because I had to reset the phone I have to (re)enter the password and it does not work.

Something similar happened a few months ago - so the only solution was to change the password itself. This is cumbersome solution- as it needs resetting passwords on all devices - have many people and many devices- too much of a pain.

Next time if this happens, try stopping all apps (swipe up) power off/on iPhone and then try connecting to the SSID you want.
