That is incredibly frustrating. APTV2 runs iOS and iOS supports WPA/WPA2 Ent. It seems rather arbirary to not support it on APTV2. That is really going to limit how APTV2 is used on college and university campuses. I was ready to buy 20 of them for our classrooms :-(
Anyone need a nice square-sized paper weight? Due to a storm, our modem/router fired. The AppleTV3 worked fine with our old router, but now that that the new one is WPA2, I have a nice, new paper weight that is not even two months old. Apple: Let's make product "A" the neatest, niftyest, thing ever. Then, we'll create another neat thing, but won't really make it THAT great.

Maybe, maybe not. Why the Apple TV3 sees our network, it will not accept the password. (Yes, I am SURE I am putting it in correctly.)
However, the suggestion from one of the Apple support reps is to change the router's channel. And that is with WPA2 personal. The rep says there are too many people using the same channels, even though we all live in separate houses that are some distance away from each other. I hope that changing the channel will work. Now, I have to figure out how to do that, otherwise it is a paperweight.
The person you spoke to is referring to interference.
Intermittent problems are often a result of interference. Interference can be caused by other networks in the neighbourhood or from household electrical items.
You can download and install iStumbler (NetStumbler for windows users) to help you see which channels are used by neighbouring networks so that you can avoid them, but iStumbler will not see household items.
Refer to your router manual for instructions on changing your wifi channel or adjusting your multicast rate.
There are other types of problems that can affect networks, but this is by far the most common, hence worth mentioning first. Networks that have inherent issues can be seen to work differently with different versions of the same software. You might also try moving the Apple TV away from other electrical equipment.

Without making many changes, I finally got it to connect. It took me 15 attempts to do so. As a Mac user, I use the Airlock widget to see the channels used by the neighbors. Most are on the same channel I was using; I gather it is the default. In the area of the state I live in, there are only two real service providers. That may have something to do with most people being on the same channel.
I bought this for AppleTV3 for a relative, but since he cannot connect in the dorms, he gave it back.MacBook, Mac OS X (10.7.3)
