    I just got an iPad 2 wi-fi, and want to allow it to access my wi-fi network which is WPA2 protected. I have a complex passphrase on the WPA2 to keep my network safe.

    How do I get the passphrase onto my iPad so I can paste it into the password box to access my network?

    Typing the password in is my last resort being that it's a long complex password and it would be far easier to cut and paste it in like I do with my computers.

    Can I do it through iTunes?

    Thanks!

    You could do it via iTunes but to be honest it will probably be easier to just type it in.

    I'm not sure how you could go around this. Each device I have that has wifi capability, required me to type my password in.

    E mail it, then copy/paste from there.

    Or create a text file then copy it to your Ipad and then copy your password from the text file, then paste it. :)

    How would I copy a text file to the iPad, or email to myself if it's not connected to wifi? Can it be done through the iTunes connection to my computer? Is there a way to transfer it direct?

    I think I would just bite the bullet and type it into an iPad note. Then you would copy and paste. You would also have it available for future device connections.

    The iPad will need it done manually 1st attempt, cut and paste the code from 'notes'.

    Or change to a simple password, get connected and change it back having copied the complex one to the iPad via email.

    I ended up typing it in. I was just hoping there was an easier way.
