Unable To Connect To Wifi Due To Incorrect Password

So I'm sitting here at the car dealer getting some service done and they have a sign indicating free wifi Internet service.

Nice. So I try to log on with the iPad...15 times. I think maybe I'm typing the password in wrong or they changed it so I try on the iPhone. Works the first time. I am still unable to says incorrect password.

Is this the wifi problem wveryones been talking about or am I missing something? Any suggestions?

Wifi Incorrect Password
I just bought a Ipad 3G 64Gb. In my home it can connect to my WPA wireless network fine. At job there is a WEP WiFi network wich I cant connect I'm sure the password is fine but always I get "Incorrect password" error. I tried with my laptop and Iphone 3G (IOS 4.1) with no problem, but with the brand new Ipad there is a issue I tried by looking information about this and it seems is a IOS bug

WiFi Finds Home Network - Reports Incorrect Password
New iPad 64GB Wifi. Works with WiFi at work, but with my home computer (Dell) and DSL (Verizon Westell 7500), I get the "Incorrect password" for my network error. The iPad finds the network, it just won't connect. I've tried it with the iPad on the same table as the router. Have tried numerous times, so I'm sure I'm typing the password correctly. Have rebooted everything. Fujitsu tablet (also Windows 7) works fine.

Can't Connect WiFi - Ask For Password?
I keep finding my ipad dropping it's WiFi connection - in the middle of an active session. Looking at one web page, click a link -> tries to reconnect.

It seems to forget its password - I need to re-enter to reconnect. A real pain.

Not Connect To Any Password Protected Wifi?
it connects just fine to neighbor's wifi, which is not password protected, but our wifi will not connect. Also would not connect out of state at our two kid's homes on their password protected wifi. Actually it did connect briefly on one of theirs, but never since. I have reinstalled our Linksys and it just won't connect...frustrating to say the least!

Cannot Get Mail Since The User Name Or Password Are Incorrect
I am trying to set up an account on my iPad, but just can't seem to get it to work. I already have other accounts set up and they work fine.

I enter all the correct information for using IMAP, etc. Then it tells me it cannot get mail since the user name or password are incorrect. They ARE correct. I have this account set up on my MacBook with no issues using all the same information.

So, using all the same set up and credentials I set this account up on my iPod Touch with no issues last night and it worked just fine. Today it isn't working the same. It is keeps telling me Secure Connection Failed.

Any ideas out there to help me out.

Cannot Get Mail - User Name Or Password Is Incorrect?
I keep receiving same error over and over again no matter what I try.

Cannot Get Mail

The user name or password for "" is incorrect.

Yet the information is correct since I'm able to connect to my e-mail using the safari browser and logging in the old fashioned way.

I have tried the reboot function.

Deleting and trying to recreate the account.

Resetting the WiFi connection and its settings.

Signed in and out of my account on Safari tried everything I can possibly think of.

Now every time I try to recreate the account it gives me this error and really not sure what to do.

IPad 2 :: Wi-Fi Password Is Incorrect And Set-up Has Stalled?
I just purchased my ipad 2 and began the set-up. I chose the correct wi-fi network, but input an incorrect password. Now I am unable to move forward. If I choose that wi-fi network, it won't prompt the password again. It seems as though it took the incorrect password and it needs to be changed. If I select my network, there is a "thinking circle" and I can't move forward on the set-up. Is there a way to go back and change the password so I can finish my set-up?

Says Password Is Incorrect When Updating Apps
I got the new iPad a few weeks ago and I have encountered a problem. Twice over the past week I have been notified that one of my apps has an update, but when I enter my password to log in it says my password is incorrect. I know I have entered the correct password. The 1st time this happened I ended up having to go through and change my password (this was just a couple of days ago). Today I was notified again that an app had an update and the same thing happened. I am entering my new correct password and I just keep getting the message saying that my password is incorrect. Has anyone had this problem?

Gmail User Name Or Password Incorrect?
I am getting the above message for some reason. Things have been going along fine since I set the new iPad up. I had both exchange and the Gmail app getting mail and a few days ago turned off exchange mail since it just duplicated. Fine until this morning when I started getting this message.

I turned exchange email back on and my gmail shows up in that folder but not the Gmail. Any suggestions before I delete and redo the gmail one.

Wifi Wont Connect/giving Invalid Password Error?
Connection worked yesterday, but today, can't connect. It gives the error invalid password, but the password hasn't changed. My iPhone doesn't have any problem, enable, disable, delete and re-setup - no problems at all, but the iPad won't work. Nothing has changed in the Linksys/Cisco Wireless Access point, Model WAP 11. Any ideas or solutions? I don't have the ability to disable security or change the password, the WAP is used by many in the office for testing phone software over wi-fi. No other devices are having the problem. (we write phone software and have 100's of devices). iPad is the only device with this problem.

MobileMe Sync Failed - Password Is Incorrect?
I signed up for MobilMe when I received my iPad last Friday from Apple. I decided quickly that I did not want it so I canceled it after a couple of days, but not before I set it up to work with my iPhone and my iPad.

I removed the MobilMe account from both devices and my iPad is fine, but on my iPhone EVERY time I make a change to a contact or add a new one I get a message that "MobilMe Sync Failed - The password for the MobilMe user "xxxxx" is incorrect."

I've set up my iCloud and iTunes accounts with no bother but I can't get my emails to work. I've entered all the details as instructed (and as I did before successfully on my iPad and iPhone) but I get a message saying my username or password is incorrect. It's most definitely not as I have checked and checked and checked. I have no problems accessing my mail over the website and my phone is still attached to the account, but my iPad will not accept my username and password! I've deleted and re-added the account countless times and saved the account and triple checked all the settings which are all completely correct

Password Incorrect For All Gmail Accounts On IPad 2?
I picked up the new iPad this morning from the Apple Store. Since I already have an iPad 2 at home, I opted to do the set-up at home. Came home, backed up the old iPad 2 via iCloud, restored it to factory settings (I'm giving it away) and then powered up the new iPad and restored from the backup. Everything went perfectly, except for my email accounts, which all had the passwords wiped out.I've gone into the accounts and re-entered the passwords.

But none of the Gmail accounts are working. I consistently get the message that the "user name or password are incorrect." But I have double, triple and quadruple-checked that I have the correct info.I have even tried deleting the account from the iPad altogether and then re-entering all of the information according to the instructions provided by Google/Gmail. No luck.I've gone to Gmail and confirmed that it is set to IMAP.

Unable To Send Email / User Name Or Password Incorrect
I have had this same issue on the iPhone for a few years and now have it on the iPad. I have setup my personal account and can successfully receive email. However, sending email is problematic as it always incurs the error:

Cannot Send Mail
The user name or password for
"SMTP:<my email address>@<ISP's SMTP server>" is incorrect.

The user name for my email account is my email address ( and the SMTP server is of the normal form

The error message suggests that Apple's mail utility is joining the username with the SMTP address with the @ being the conjunction. If it is doing this, it is wrong as it is screwing up the user name. Is there anyway to stop the Mail utility from doing this?

An Error Saying Address Or Password For Is Incorrect?
I can't get the Mail app to work. I tap on the gmail. I type. In all the info like my name, address, password and I get an error saying address or password for is incorrect, so I'm thinking I mistyped something, except what I typed was right. My apple I'd is the same as my email so I type it a lot, so I doubt I'm mistyping it, I downloaded a gmail app from iTunes and it still didn't work, so I tried to access my email from my iPad (safari) still didn't work. But on my laptop it works and I signed in here, so I am typing it right. Maybe it's my iPad, maybe I need to restore it. I'll give it a try tomorrow.
