I made the switch from Android to WP last night and am really liking the experience so far. I am having issues connecting to my work wifi. I have entered the correct password multiple times and it keeps telling me it is wrong. Is there a setting somewhere I am missing? To those that say recheck the password - I am the only one in the office that has the password in the first place. Ideas?

Ok, the access points are using WEP 128 bit. Have been restarting access points to try and see if that resolves. I have also tried soft reset and turning wifi off then back on still no luck.

If you aren't involved in IT decisions at your workplace, I would say there's not much you can do, but if you are and your infrastructure and clients support it, I would recommend switching to WPA2... If you have some really old legacy equipment using wifi this might be an issue, but I'd definitely look into it if it's a possiblity... (plus hey, your WP8 device will work!)
If changing the entire WLAN at your workplace is going to be an issue, it is also possible your hardware supports a virtual AP; essentially what this would do for you is allow your radios to broadcast two separate networks, and you could turn up a separate SSID with WPA authentication for use with your phone.
As a disclaimer this is being said with no idea as to what kind of infrastructure and hardware you have at your company, nor your ability to make infrastructure related decisions, but that is my $0.02.

Good to hear... WP8 support aside, you'll be doing a favor for the security of your business network! (Look at the WEP article on Wiki, check out the flaws section, and you can have some good examples on how vulnerable WEP really is).
I would try to implement WPA2 if at all possible, but just regular WPA is still a significant improvement.
