Default can't connect to wifi with wpa psk

I am traveling and am having trouble connecting to routers here in Botswana.

Most of the reading I have done regards people fixing their own router and broadcasting ssid.

I need to connect to public routers at hotels and restaurants. So far there are 2 places I can't connect to.
I am also with an iPhone and android tablet (2012 note) that connect no problem. This leads me to believe the problem is in the phone.
I have connected to 2 other places in Botswana successfully. So the antenna works.
I use wpa/wpa2 psk at home with no issues.


Airplane mode is on.
The router is visible. I put in the password. Connect lights up. Press connect.
The router says saved. Never connected.

Motorola xt907
Android 4.3.1
Cyanogenmod 10.2-20131104
Kernel 3.0.101-g02ddf4a

I don't have the option to re flash roms or anything as that would require a pc, I don't have access to.

I would like to use the phone make calls over Skype. For some reason others can't hear me well on the tablet and conversations are not discrete over the speaker.

Maybe there is a setting or some thing that can be changed in root explorer?

Hopefully others have dealt with this while traveling.


Thanks!!!
