Connecting mobile phone to wifi

I have anew mobile phone, a Motorola G5, which will not connect to my wifi. Everything else works on the phone: internet access etc but it will not connect to my home wifi. I get 'authenticating' then, after a couple of minutes 'authentical problems' message appears. I have just checked and connected to a friend's wifi and that went in after just a few seconds.

Any ideas, anyone?

Thanks in anticipation

Sounds like you've entered the WiFi password incorrectly. Try  the '''forget network" option and then reconnecting

Nope. Password correct and checked a dozen times

Re: Connecting mobile phone to wifi

Stupid Boy! Me, that is. The realisation came to me last night just as was falling asleep. I have been entering my Plusnet Login password - not the router password. I'm told it's an age thing and I'm beginning to believe it. maybe the response 'not entering the correct wifi password' triggered something in my subconscious. Anyway, all sorted now. Thanks.
