    HOME WIFI
    This one is really frustrating. As a whole my phone picks up wi-fi networks perfectly (coffee shops, school campus, etc.) but for some reason.

    The only exception to this is my home Time Warner wi-fi.

    I can see my home wifi network on there and the phone picks it up at full strength but for some reason my password won't validate. (And I've tried it about three dozen times, verified that it's the same I use for my laptop in terms of formatting, etc but it just doesn't connect).

    People with laptops who visit me have no problem accessing the network and even my old iPhone works fine. The phone is literally the ONLY exception. Wtfunk?

    It's the only network I connect to that would have a SECURE/password so that may be the problem. Has anyone seen this?? (I'll rep you like crazy :) )

    Try changing the router's password for one that has less than 16 characters.

    Ok. So just change the password for another one then and, like pankaj981 said, don't use WEP security, set it to WPA / WPA2.
