Connecting Alcatel flip phone to WiFi

I can't get my Alcatel flip phone to access my NETGEAR WiFi at home. It lists the correct NETGEAR network but won't accept the password. This is not usually necessary, but if the Verizon network goes down, it would be handy. It works other places. Any ideas?

What Netgear router is this? What firmware version is loaded on it?

 

Do other things connect to the wifi at home?

 

If so, then the problem seems to be with the Alcatel flip phone.

 

What does "won't accept the password" mean? What actually happens?

 

Does your wifi has a password with strange characters that might baffle the phone?
