    Okay, I haven't found any topic relating to this issue. If there is such a thread, forgive my error.
    So my problem is basically that my iPhone 4 with iOS 5 (previous versions had the same issue) cannot connect to my home Wi-Fi unless:
    1, It is not protected by any kind of password
    2, It is protrected by WEP. Somewhy my router won't accept the legit ASCII code, only hexadecimal.
    Whenever I set the protection to WPA2 PSK, it won't find the network, and even if it does, it keeps telling me that the device was unable to connect to the network.
    I have tried forgetting the network, resetting the network information in settings, but so far I haven't found a solution. Any ideas?

    Which router or Wireless Access Point?

    Have you checked to see if there might be a firmware upgrade for it?
