When there are other devices already connected to the WiFi, my phone just refuses to connect. But if I'm the first one to connect to the network and then allow the other devices to connect, all of them work just fine. So it's nothing about my WiFi's capacity. And this happens only with my home network.

sounds like an IPV4 / IPV6 issue. or maybe an IP issue. your phone may have asked you whether to SAVE the connection details, and it may have saved TOO much detail such as the IP. you are best to not save the settings. consider fixing its IP in the ROUTER and placing it up HIGH out of the way, eg it normally might get 192.168.1.11 whereas you want to push it up high at say 192.168.1.100 to keep it out of the way of auto assigned ones. most routers have a LIST of CONNECTED stations, with a box you can tick that says something like ALWAYS give that device that IP and you can usually type over it to push it up high.

Are all your TCP/IP properties set to automatic? If not you will get blocked if the router has issued the same details to another device.

Sounds like your wifi is having problems. Could be a lot of things. When all else fails, reset the router to factory defaults and set it up again. (Unless you know routers well enough to go looking for the error).

What Router are you using?

If your using a MiFi device you will be limited to how many devices can connect to it.

Try restarting your phone.. before trying to connect.
