    Hi guys, perhaps someone might be able to help me. I've got a wifi issue - I use a WEP secure network at work and I also have a WEP network at home. Both use MAC authenticating. The one at work may be 64bit and I have no problem connecting to it. I've entered my iPad's MAC address and everything and it works. The network at home is 128bit and for some reason everytime I try to connect I keep getting an 'incorrect password' error. I checked and recheck my MAC address in the filtering table, I tried to change the router password to HEX and use as encryption key, still not working. I thought maybe since my password uses special characters (# and @) that it might not be compatible or something, that's why I tried Hexadecimal format, but I don't think that's it. I can't seem to figure out what is wrong. I reset the network settings on the iPad, I rebooted the iPad, still no change. And I verified and reverified the network SSID and password.

    If anyone has any suggestions please let me know. Would greatly appreciate.

    Reboot the router. Happened to me once. Good luck.
