I'm having issues with connecting my IPOD Touch to my Linksys Secured WPA2 network.

My IPOD touch is 4th Generation.
OS = 4.2.1

It sees my Network and asks me to type in the password. The password is very long and after I type it in it states "Unable to join the network"

Can anyone help? Is there an App I can download to help?

IPOD Touch, iOS 4, Ipod Touch (4th Generation)

    Additional information on this issue...

    Linksys Router = WRT400N

    I've never had issues attaching other devices (PC's, Laptops, Wireless Printer, etc...) to this network.

    Has anyone tried attaching to a SECURE WPA2 network? I wish this device had a USB port then I wouldn't have this issue as I have a USB Flash that would install the information onto the device.

    Any help would be appreciated.

    Does anyone know how to get the MAC address on the IPOD touch?

    Go to Settings > General > About > WiFi Address for the iPad MAC address.

    Still cannot attach to Secure network after I put MAC address in wireless router.

    Can anyone tell me how to turn off the hide password feature so I can validate the password I put in?

    I've put the MAC address in my router, but now I am getting an incorrect password message. Can anyone tell me how to turn off the hide password feature so I can verify the password I just typed in?

    You do not need to input the MAC address into your router unless you have the router set to MAC address filtering (which I suggest you leave off).

    Second, an overly long password just creates a host of problems and provides little, if any, extra protection. WPA2 has never been cracked and anything over 8-12 characters is going to take more computer horsepower than is available in the world today. So, shorten the password and log your touch onto your network.
