Lost wifi connection on Android

My Android tablet has lost the connection to my wifi.  It finds the network with excellent signal strength, but when I enter the router password, it reports 'Authenticating'.  After a while it closes the app but does not connect.  I have entered both the router password and tried the Wireless Key, but neither appear to solve the problem.  I have two other android devices, fortunately they will connect without any problem.  Where is the fault and what can I do about it?

First thing to try is forgetting the Wifi network and trying to connect again. Normally you can do this with a long press on the network name and selecting forget network.
I must have been really bad in a previous life as this was my 3rd ISP in a row that used lithium.
Now you're stuck with me because my new ISP doesn't run a forum Cheesy
