    Trying to connect my Motorola SBG901 router to my new IPad. This home router is in use with my computer, printer and 2 iphones. On the IPad, the network appears as a choice under Wi-Fi Networks, but when I try and type in the password, the Join button goes blank. Tried solving the problem at the Apple Store, but were unable to assist. Got an 800 number to Apple. Running wpa-2 encryption. Was hoping I would get an automatic link up. Alternatively, am using my Verizon Mi-Fi 2200 to access the internet.

    Just a thought ... Try a cold reboot, then repeat the connection attempt.

    make sure the keyboard isn't autocorrecting your password, watch for popups

    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.
