My phone won't pick up my wifi.

I recently moved and what a phone will not connect to my home wifi..using the same router and my sons computer hooked up immediately.I thought the address may be different so I told my phone to forget the old router name comes up but says it's weak or broken even though it is a strong signal..any ideas??
thank you

Varies with the router.

In reply to: ugh.

Seems some detail is needed but even with that detail I will refer to a page in the router manual.
