1. Incorrect Router Password (WEP or WPA Key)

Most routers come with a default password which can be found written somewhere on the body of the router. Some people may decide to change this password, especially if the router is for personal use, but many people (usually big families) leave it as the default so other family members can find it easily.
The default router password is mostly found on a sticker on the bottom of the router. If you cannot find your router password on the body of your router, then you can access it by going into your router settings.
