I had the same problem when I switched from a 16gb to a 32gb version.

I restored a backup but couldn't connect to wifi. A factory reset solved the problem for me but I see you've already tried that.

The password you entered is correct and the Fritzbox isn't using any MAC filter i assume?

Connect your phone to the computer and open adb shell
Kill any process named wpa_supplicant and type:

Code:
wpa_supplicant -dd -i wlan0 -f /sdcard/wifi.log -c /etc/wifi/wpa_supplicant.conf
Then attach the generated logfile after having tried connecting to a wifi network.

Alternatively you can run "wpa_cli" and show it's output.

No i tried everything now but still not working! So i explain my router is down stairs, i am on the second floor! He sees my network but can't connect saying authentication error! When i go near the router about 3-4meters it connects to my network and i can access the net without problems! Now i am at my friends home and my galaxy s3 connects near the router but when i go in an other room it remains connected to the wifi but no internet connection an after a while he disconnects automatically!

I suppose if it where an hardware problem it wouldn't find the network at all or am i wrong with that?
