Unable to Tap Connect when Connecting to Wi-Fi in Android

Problem: You are trying to connect to a Wi-Fi network in Android but after entering the information the Connect option can't be tapped. The Cancel option works fine.

Solution: Look for incomplete information. If connecting to a WPA2-Enterprise network, make sure you have not only entered the username/password (identity/password) but also selected a Certificate option from the dropdown. Also if the number of characters entered for the password is not sufficient to match the security of the network you are trying to connect to (especially with WEP) the Connect button will not work.

Android is validating the entries but instead of providing feedback on what you missed, simply disables the Connect button until you figure out how to enter things properly.
