Having trouble connecting iPads and iPhone to Time Capsule wifi

I just purchased a time capsule and I have set up a Wi-Fi network.

The Wi-Fi network works with my PCs and Macs, However I am having trouble getting my iPhone and iPad to connect to the network.

I am pretty sure that the problem is not with the iPad. I have tried iPads of three different friends and none of them can connect to the network.

It is odd however, that the network indeed works with my laptops. How should I go about to start to troubleshoot this?

Thanks!

iPads don't accept long passphrases.  That's the main limitation that I've found for secured wireless.

Try resetting the network settings on the iPad or iPhone and re-connect after the unit reboots

All good advice so-far.

Also, try to see if it's successful using only WPA/TKIP or WPA2/AES.  Some devices don't like to use a mix of authentication/encryption settings.

By this, do you mean, to put it on Airplane mode and back on? I've tried that several times to no avail.

It's only 8 digits long.

I've got it set for WP2 Personal. Is that ok?

i don't believe the problem is with the iPad. When I am at other hotspots other than my house, such as the coffee shop, the iPad connects just perfectly.

Try using WPA Personal instead of WPA2.
