My new Nexus 7 wont go past the "Select Wi-Fi" screen although I have set the Wi-Fi up


I assume you're using a secure Wifi connection with a password and it seems like that authentication is not working. You could try using an open wifi access point to eliminate the possibility of this authentication issue.

If I am understanding the problem, then you are trying to connect to a network that is password protected (that is what the lock symbol generally means when shown beside a network that has been discovered by your device). It cannot 'authenticate' you until you key in the correct password. However, if that is the case, when you click/touch that network and then touch Connect, it should automatically pop up a box asking for the password. Key in the password (be sure to get upper/lower case correct on any letters), and then touch Connect. If that does not work, or if I misunderstood, then provide additional info and we can try again. Good luck!

Authentication problem


trying dumbing down the authentication on your wifi router. Try these:
turn off 40mhz wide channels
try wpa instead of wpa2
try tkip instead of aes

if all else fails, try wep.

Meep will not connet to wifi


Here is the remedy for that error:
We've heard a few reports of Wifi connectivity issues recently, among them 'Authentication error'. If you receive this message, our recommended remedy is to remove all Wifi connection information from your Meep, turn off your Meep, reboot your router, then turn on your Meep and re-add the Wifi information. Follow these steps exactly in this order to resolve this error message:
1. Remove all Wifi network information from the Meep's settings
2. Reboot your router
3. Re-add the Wifi network information to the Meep's settings
4. Reboot the Meep.
