    Is your home router configured for mac address filtering? Not that its made more secure...

    You can turn off mac address randomizing, for any specific wifi source, but you will have to enter the phone's current mac address into the router. Then it wont change again (for this wifi source).

    Settings > Wi-Fi & internet > Wi-Fi > cog next to your SSID > Advanced > Privacy > change to "Use device MAC" then add the new MAC address to your router and voila!

    I'm gonna assume you don't know what an "SSID" is...

    Check the Saved networks, or if you have never connected, in the window where the password is entered, tap on Advanced, and scroll down to the randomization setting.
