I cannot connect to my Home Network
I have both a new Motorola Xoom WiFi Only Tablet and a new HTC Wildfire Phone. The phone is to be changed to an HTC Aria as soon as AT&T takes over as the sole provider in my area this month.
I have what may be an Android problem as both my new Motorola Xoom WiFi Only Tablet and a new HTC Wildfire Phone will not allow me to connect to my existing home network WiFi which has WPA/WPA2 PSK Security. My Network SSID is immediately found when I turn on WiFi but while trying to connect Iím only asked to input my Password but nowhere can I find a way to input my Registration Key. No matter what I try on either device I cannot Connect the WiFi.
Iíve got Desktop and multiple LapTop Computers operating on Windows XP Pro and Windows 7 Pro that give me the option of inputting the Registration Key and they all work fine connected to my home network.
Why wonít Android allow me to connect to my home network utilizing my existing WPA/WPA2 PSK Security?

I found that I had no problems connecting to numerous different WiFi Networks in different towns, some using the same WPA/WPA2 PSK Security of my existing home network WiFi which has the WPA/WPA2 PSK Security. The "WHY" I couldn't fully identify yet but I have to consider that I had set up my home network ten years ago prior to the Android Operating System and it uses my registration key whereas the other protected networks using WPA/WPA2 PSK Security only requested my password.
Everything is working smoothly now (except at my house) and I just have to get used to this new Android 3.0 Honeycomb OS of my Motorola Xoom which is quite a bit different from my Android Phone.
I'm going to redo my home Network Security!!
Thanks for looking,
