    It should automatically store passwords and join known networks. So there's no specific place where you store the password, the pop up will appear the first time it encounters a new network, once connected the ipad will reconnect automatically to that network from then on, unless you chose to forget the network.

    Your absolutely right it should remember the password but it won't after completely shutting down.Ive Googled it and many other people are having the same problem,possibly something to due with 5.01 update.

    I'm having the same issue with a Verizon 4G iPad3. Only with the WiFi at my work though. At home I am just automatically connedted to my WiFi network, but when I get to work, the WiFi network there is not remembered. I always have to select it from the scanned list and enter the WPA2 key.

    It would be nice for this to work consistently.

    I'm having a similar problem. I was asked to reset the network, which wiped out all memory of networks and passwords. Now it won't remember any networks. I have to key in the password every time.

    Any ideas? I tried resetting the network again. Ugh.

    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.
