Default Optimus Wifi issues with secure networks

I just purchased an LG Optimus with Android 2.2. Quite nice so far..except for the Wifi. I am able to connect to my home WPA Wifi network ( strong signal) but cannot browse any websites. Keep getting an error message.
It works however with unsecured networks. I have tried factory resets, tweaked my router and wifi..but still doesn't work. Is there something I am missing out?

Thanks

You have to enter the same password in your OP1 that has been set in the router. Also if there is a MAC Address filter in your router, you need to enter the MAC Address of the OP1 in your routers exception list.

I have the same issue on my Optimus One (w/ Froyo). The problem is the password. There is no MAC address filter on my wifi router. I guess the problem is the password. I need to enter encrypted password string (56 chars!!!). I loaded the sting into a txt file in my data folder. I can edit it with Write appli. But How can I copy and paste it to the wifi setting menu? I tried {Menu}+A key (for Select All), {Menu}+C key (for copy) and {Menu}+V key (paste), but it doesn't work.
Any clue?

What encryption are you using? Even if you use WPA2, you dont need a huge key.

Some routers also allow for a restructive range of tcp/ip addresses as well. With my system, I setup the wifi on the phone, loaded the next tcp/ip number from the list of current tcp/ip on my router. Then my router detected the new device, including the phone's mac, and I just ticked to option to add this new device to the list of valid devices that my router will talk too. (It only took about 90 minutes!...)

Default Wifi WEP/WPSK authentication / connection / disconnected

so, the optimus one will not connect to hidden wifi networks with mac filtering... even is you add everything properly?
and it won't connect to hidden wifi with wpa-psk/wpa2/psk security?

that make's it useless, doens't it?
I need to return it asap?!!!

any work around it?
I had to broadcast my wifi at home, or i wouldn't connect.
Also, it won't connect at starbucks! free wifi!

it's useless if it can't connect to hidden wifi with wpa/wpa2/wep security and mac address filtering!

Ratings and Comments about HiddenSSID Enabler for Android

HiddenSSID Enabler - Android Apps and Tests - AndroidPIT

Not sure why you are hiding your Wifi SSID - it doesn't add any security at all. Stick with WPA and a decent password and you'll be safe enough.

I have the same problem with my Koodo LG Optimus one (P500h).

My LG Optimus one can work with WEP and WPA2/TKIP,
but it doesn't work with WPA2/AES.
