So today I got a Nexus 5 and for some reason it won't connect to my home wi-fi. When I try to connect it says "Authentication problem".

I tried restarting my router and it didn't work. My internet connection is working fine since I am posting this question on my Mac Book Pro. Can anyone help me??

Hi Dev,

When connecting to your home WLAN, an Authentication Problem means that the password you are using to access the network is incorrect. It's as simple as that, you will need to find the correct password and use that to gain access to it.

Hope this helps!

Does your router support push button WPS?

If so try pushing that and the button in your wifi settings.

Thanks guys for helping me :) It is just like Mathieu mentioned my password was wrong. My nails are too long I guess.
