I got a very long pass work, is there someway to cut and paste it into the ipad so I don't need to type it in?

Just asking

    You don't need to do that.

    Tap Settings in your Home screen then tap Safari then tap AutoFill. Make sure *Names and Passwords* is turned ON.

    Restart your iPad. Press and hold the Sleep/Wake button until the red slider appears. Slide your finger across the slider to turn off iPad. To turn iPad back on, press and hold the Sleep/Wake until the Apple logo appears.

    When you access WI-FI again, you will be prompted to type in the password. You will be prompted to save that data, tap Yes.

    I don't think that is what the OP was asking - did not want to type it in at all but just cut and paste it in. Besides, your wifi password is retained when you set up the connection anyway. For security purposes, you should never, ever have your browser save your passwords - especially on a portable device that can be lost and then used by whomever finds it. This was really bad advice as evidenced by Apple not turning this option on by default.

    I just wanted to cut and paste my wireless password into my Ipad. for some odd reason for the first time. it disconnected from the Home network and I had to retype my login password in. But It would be easier to just cut and paste it in. Btw it seems to remember it now but I'd like to have the option to do so. or have the option to show the password that was last use and not ######## be-covered up.

    this is just around the house this ipad and I am not worried about someone getting my wireless password because they would have to live next door to me to use it.

    Would be nice if you could enter this information during the sync setup in itunes when you first setup the ipad.

    If you can email the password to yourself... Copy and paste it from the email. That is what I did.

    Thanks David, I'll try that.

    anyone know why it would just lose the password in the first place or forget it?
