    hi

    I'm trying to connect my ipad to my laptop via an ad-hoc connection. (WPA2 - personnal) (bought the ipad today, dl'd the last update)

    with a WEP key it works perfectly.
    with a WPA2 key it says impossible.

    I've read that WEP keys aren't secure. since I use the ipad (well I'm planning to use, since I cannot connect...) for a professional purpose I don't want to use a connection that can be hacked in minutes.

    what can I do to have it working properly ?

    thanks in advance

    Try this, go into SETTINGS - GENERAL - NETWORK, then chose the line with your network name on it and then press the blue arrow on the right, then tap the FORGET THIS NETWORK button at the top of the page. Then setup your network again. OR, you can try to tap RENEW LEASE and see it that helps. The first option above is the best one to try, as it resets everything in the network settings. This worked for me when I had a low signal two foot from the wireless router and could not connect. This will sometimes fix the WEP/WAP problem.

    Connectify is a sweet little program for turning a laptop into a wifi hotspot. Recommended here.
