    Try turning it "on". The next time you enter the correct PW, it should be saved and you should not have to enter it again. If that doesn't work, better have a "genius" at the Apple Store take a look at it.

    If you have one network that doesn't function properly, tell the ipad to forget it, then allow it to find it again.

    I use many networks in my travels and most of them work perfectly without needing to input passwords. I would reset network settings only as a last resort.

    I leave mine "ON" because I wish to be reminded when new network appears. This should not impact your iPad's ability to find and connect to a network.

    Yes, has made no difference. Could it be something relevant to the linksys rather than the ipad

    I have two wifi networks at home, too, and both my iPad 1 and 2 have no prob remembering their passwords. The same goes for trusted wifi networks that I've used previously. It doesn't matter if months have gone by without my having used a network; the iPads still remember the passwords.

    The only diff would be at a place like my work, where they create a new wifi password daily.
