For the last couples weeks my phone keeps disconnecting from my home wifi or failing to auto reconnect when I come home. When I check the wifi status it says authentication error. The password is correct, sometimes when I try to reconnect it will work on the 3rd or 4th try. I have turned off the smart switching so I now have two networks one 2.4g (which I renamed and removed the -2.4g from: "homenetwork-5g & homenetwork" I am still having connection issues even though I've deactivated smart switching and my wifi network is very strong... I have several other devices and smart home devices connected with strong signal that never fails. Any other ideas? I'd say it was my phone but I don't have the issue anywhere else and it just started at home a couple weeks ago...solutions?

Which phone? Have you searched your phone model to see if others are having similar issues?

 

Have you tried forgetting the SSID on the phone and starting over?
