Hello - I have NETGEAR WNDR3300 running the latest firmware.  I can connect to the router via wireless using a laptop running XP Pro and an Android phone.

When attempting to connect using an iPad, the following happens.

iPad sees the wireless network, option to connect is selected and the connection never happens (unable to connect) and I am never prompted to enter a key.  

Any ideas on why the iPad is being stubborn?

There have been quite a few discussions over at Apple about the iPad and 802.11n APs being flakey / unable to connect.

Some obvious things to try to at least get a connection:

1. Switching the router to pure 'g' mode,
2. Manually configuring the channel in 'n' mode to something higher than 149 (higher transmission rate)

There are a few other suggestions around Wide Channel support, but unsure if the WNDR3300 has this as a configurable option.

Modified security settings.

Easily connected with no security.

Tried different security settings until one would work.

Sorry - forgot to note which one worked.
