did you put in the password wrong? 

Try deleting the network from your phone and re-connecting it.

Didn't work for me. 

 

Changed the password, same error

 

Made the network open, got "can't connect"

 

Then went back to password protected and went back to the error

Is it only 1 device with the issue? 

Are you using any special characters in the ssid/password?
