    I got my iPad 3 yesterday but I cannot connect to my Netgear WNDR3700 WiFi when security option WPA2-PSK [AES] is activated. I have several othe Apple devices and all of them connect with WiFi with security option active. I only have this problem with new iPad3.

    WPA instead of WPA2

    Um. use WPA instead of WPA2. I switched mine over to WPA and it worked like a charm :)
