I'm trying to connect my Samsung Galaxy S2 to my TP-Link WA801ND Access Point. This works when I disable Wireless security but when I enable WPA2, the mobile refuses to connect.

Does the S2 support WPA2?

I can't tell for sure, but I would expect that the SGS2 supports WPA2 AES. Try an minimal example for the SSID and paraphrase without any fancy letters. – Flow Mar 31 '12 at 15:35
No game :-( My iPhone 4 also can't connect, so it's probably a bug in the WA801ND :-( – Aaron Digulla Mar 31 '12 at 15:52

The original SGS supports WPA2 with AES, so I would bet that the SGS2 does. There seems to be a glut of routers that don't play nicely with non-PC devices when using WPA, for whatever reason, so I would suspect that's your issue.

Yes. My Galaxy S is also connected with WPA2 with AES... – Evil Angel Apr 2 '12 at 17:42
