Too vague.

Since not much is known about your WIFi hot spot system there are too many reasons for this not to work. You could do the usual router reset to defaults, change just the SSID and try again.

It looks like you have an issue with your router configuration. You could log into your wifi router, enter your router's IP address and ensure that it's set to "wpa/wpa2-psk".
