Question: Incorrect Password when connecting to WIFI

I have an iPad Mini 2. On my home network, when I try to connect it says "Incorrect Password".

I have reset the network, reset the device, and reset my router. I have followed the article in Apple support. Router works properly. What else might work?

iPad 2 Wi-Fi, iOS 11.2.1

Hello Moosenuggets,

Thank you for using Apple Support Communities. It's my understanding you're receiving an error "Incorrect Password" when trying to connect your iPad Mini 2 to your home Wi-Fi network. You've done a fantastic job trying to get this resolved so far! I recommend following the remaining steps in the link below:

If you need help with your Wi-Fi password

If the issue persists, let us know if other devices are able to connect with the same password and if your iPad can connect with other networks.

Have a great day!

Had this problem, reset phone, and everything. none of that worked.

I finally accessed my wifi router and manually added a device: my iphone.

I did this by looking at devices in my router set-up page, and then to "add device manually" and then used the name of my iphone and its wifi address, (under general/about/wifi address) then saved changes.

went back to wifi selection on the phone and re-entered password, and I am now connected to the wifi.
