    I'm at one of our corporate offices that is using a WLAN secured with WPA2 security. My Windows laptop connects without issue.

    My iPad (OS 3.2.1) sees the network but every time I input the password, the iPad responds with "Incorrect Password". I am absolutely entering the password correctly. The password is alphanumeric and includes upper and lower case and spaces.

    Why won't the iPad connect? Are there other settings I should check? This is the first WLAN that I have been unable to connect to.

    Ideas?

    Does the network filter MAC addresses? As I have the same network as yours, running with WPA2 security, at first it failed then it went ok afterwards.
    In the Network >> Wifi >> Select your network (on the arrow)
    If no IP address listed, router or DNS. Try renewing the lease and see if that works. Have to play around with network settings to get it working :)

    Go into wireless settings click the blue arrow next to the network name, then click the button that says forget this network.

    try to join the network again after that.

    Thanks for the tips. Unfortunately I have already left this office and cannot try these solutions. Next time I visit this location I will try again. Appreciate the support!

    THANK YOU!
    That worked and stayed connected for hours without dropping the connection.

    This forum is outstanding

    no forget network option

    I've tried a number of times but still no "forget network" option appears. My Macbook pro connected to the network with the password that my iPad tells me is an incorrect password. Any ideas? Thanks
