Apple iPad Unable to join the network using DIR-655. Help !
« on: August 12, 2010, 12:45:29 AM »

I purchased an iPad two nights ago and I have not been able to connect to my wi-fi network.

My wireless network name (SSID) is visible.
Security Mode: WPA2 Only - Personal
Cipher Type: TKIP and AES

I also temporarily turned on a guest zone without security and the iPad still can not connect. 

I have reset my iPad network settings many times and I powered off my DIR-655 routers several times but without any success.

My lenovo T400 notebook connects without issue after every wireless network change I have made.

I have not reset my router back to factory settings and I will try that soon but has anyone else experienced this problem. 

Thank you.

I am no expert on wireless encryption standards but I can offer how i connected my IpOd. I have the 655 set on WEP, Both, 128bit.
I tried to use WPA2 but I could not get my laptop to connect. (Other than looking at the options in XP, I don't know how to identify which standards my laptop can support). Once I switched to WEP and got my laptop connected, my Ipod connected easily in the same manner.
Sorry this isn't the exact info you are looking for, but maybe it will help.

Set to WPA-personal
Switch Cipher to AES only
Set to Automatic transmit rate
Set to Auto 20/40 MHz

WPA mode Auto (WPA or WPA2)
Key update interval 3600
use passkey that's at least 8 characters

Save settings

Restart router

Wait about 2 minutes

Grab ipad, go into settings, go into wireless
Find SSID and select
enter wireless passkey you selected above

Works like a charm with iphones (3G, 3GS, iphone4), ipads, ipod touches

Shaith - thanks for the detailed response but I fixed the wi-fi problem differently. After two router resets I realized that my two other wireless devices were connecting successfully everytime because their MAC addresses were always being allowed by my DIR-655 but not my iPad.  The fix was adding my iPad's MAC # into my network filter.  I am posting this response from my iPad. Thank you all for your suggestions.

Wow. How could you forget that you turned it on? Network Filter though, is really great on blocking MAC Addresses.

Network filtering works very well and as design.  As far as forgetting to check that part first, I guess I was too focus on the iPad.  Also the router log was a dead give away and I will remember to look there first for troubleshooting.
