Sandisk Media Drive won't connect to Note 3 wi-fi.

Can anyone tell me what is wrong? My media drive connects fine via wi-fi on al my other devices. But, my new Note 3 does not connect when I select the Sandisk from the wi-fi setting panel. It first returns the message "Checking the quality of your internet connection..." It ehn fails to connect and reconnects to the default wi-fi network.

 

Thank in advance for any help.

i searched that message and it seems that is hapening on several WiFi devices. one user used an iphone to configurwe internet on the WMD then the note would connect. I think this issue is more on the note side though because there are several reports of this issue on many different wifi routers.

I am having the same issue on all my Android devices. Yet apple devices work fine. I tried to connect to several android devices at BEst Buy. It worked. I am not sure what is happening. But, it seems like there is a conflict with something else running on my Note 3. I get the message "Checking internet connection", then "Poor connection. I know it's not really poor because I have the wi-fi device 3 feet away.

My Media Drive connects just fine with my three Android devices. I am just using it to connect them to each other, though, not also to the Internet at the same time (I have no need to do that).
