Hi there

If it says Authentication error, it is a problem with the password ***** the wifi network.

Where are they getting the wifi password *****?

Ask Your Own Email Question
Customer reply replied 10 months ago
I was throughly & completely dissatisfied with this service, & never received any results. I think I was online for over an hour & a half. I've used similar sites successfully before. Perhaps the problem lies with your agreement with Spectrum?Consider this, I'm from LA & was visiting my friend in San Diego overnight. I bought her a brand new WiFi only tablet. It was Sat night, & I wanted to set it up online, before leaving for LA. We're both disabled & it'll be a long time b4 we see each other again. She showed me a paper with her password & a website for problems. Since I also had my broadband tablet, I looked up the site. It said the issue was related to the Spectrum buyout, all we needed to do was scroll down to our state, CA, look up the mail settings & change them to the new ones listed. They provided instant tech support: I explained my friend's lack of knowledge & my concern, to change any settings, since I'm setting up a new tablet, & I wanted to resolve this before leaving town within the hour. The tech assured me, that this will be easily fixed, & that I was being transferred for free, to a tech who would resolve it at no charge, & our previous conversation would arrive with the job order, so I wouldn't have to repeat it all.
Great.The very 1st thing, I was asked for a credit card to proceed. Then, repeatedly, & repeatedly, & repeatedly, if you include my first tech chat (that was supposed to arrive with my request), I had to explain, no one has access to WiFi. "Authentication error". I re-explained again, there's 2 tablets only - 1 broadband & 1 WiFi. We're unable to access her WiFi account. I'm using my broadband to chat, obviously & the other can't connect with anything, obviously. I explained the entire situation again. I even provided the website, so the tech could go there & fully understand what we were trying to do. Apparently that didn't occur, because repeatedly the tech asked, which computer or tablet was connected originally? Seriously? I mean, really? Everything about that statement told me that the tech still had absolutely no idea of what I had been trying to do.If the tech understood fundamentally, I'm visiting & I bought my friend, a TWC customer, a new WiFi tablet, & I'm using my broadband to chat with her, & we can't access WiFi, due to "authentication error" & company says it's due to buyout, just change mail specs, by state... Then, why on earth would she ask, which computer or tablet was originally connected?
NONE! EVER! Which I kept explaining. There's an obvious problem somewhere.After an hr & a half, from 1st sign on & chat to this tech, we had to leave. I told the tech as much & signed off.
I shouldn't have been charged a cent or enrolled in anything, per Spectrum's promise & agreement with this site.
Thank you for your attention in this matter.Sincerely, *****
