Hi. Welcome to justanswer.The previous expert has opted out. I will try my best to help you out.First of all, the lock symbol that appears next to wifi icon means that the wifi network is password ***** It has nothing to do with your issue.Now tell me what device are you trying to connect with the wifi network. Is it Nexus 7?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes

no just the hub
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 2 years ago.
Are you able to connect to the hub via any other device?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.
yes this laptop I am using today
Expert:  nathan_mills replied 2 years ago.
Open the Wifi settings and press and hold the network and then press Forget Network.Now again search for the available network and now enter the password ***** check if it connects or not.
