My Ipad will connect to my home Wifi network but will randomly pop up with an error message that the password is incorrect after having already connected (with the correct password). Has anyone had a similar issue?

IPAD, iPhone OS 3.1.3

    Getting the same problem and it seems to have gotten worse in the last week. It usually only happens shortly after waking the Ipad up.

    Turning the WiFi off then on seems to fix the problem for as long as I need to use it, but the problem returns if I let it go to sleep.

    Chuck and J, this is a reoccurring problem. No guaranteed fix yet, but some have seen relief with router config changes, manual ip addresses, security type changes, etc. There are tons of posts here on the subject.

    The issue could be conflicting ip addresses, rf interference, or other reasons.

    Read through some of the other threads to see if any of them have a solution that works for your particular issue.

    Also, please log your specific problem with apple support.

    Well I actually have another place since I work out of town and the Ipad doesn't have this issue with the wifi there which leads me to believe it is an issue between the router and the Ipad at home. Doesn't solve the problem, but it helps.

    If your device connected to your wifi then it remember your wifi password. After this if u changed your wifi password yeah u got it. Ur device always remembered your old password and it always ask your password again(it can't update your password). To solve this forget this network and then reconnect...
