Hello. My name is***** to JustAnswer. I'm reviewing your question now, and will post back with your reply momentarily.

Before we proceed with any troubleshooting,please once shut down your E-reader and turn it back on.
Let me know when this is done.

And is that a kindle, Nook or Kobo?

When it says as authentication error it means the passwords are mismatching.

So please make sure that the password ***** your WiFi is correct.

Let me compose the instructions to fix this hold on.

Please go to WiFi settings on your Nook.

Tap the network to which you want to connect, and then tap the Forget command. This erases previous settings for the connection. Then tap the same WiFi network name and connect with your password.

Let me know if this works.
