I have 6 MSM410's all setup in autonomous mode for guest access to an external DSL line.
Wireless protection: WPA
Mode: WPA or WPA2
Key Source: Preshared key
Operating Mode: Access Point Only
Wireless Security Filters is unchecked.
SSID is broadcasting and shows up in the list of available Access Points but 95% of the time a device whether it be a laptop, Iphone, Ipad etc fails to connect after entering the Preshared Key.
A power down generally corrects the issue for a couple of days however, the issue will come back. Today had a problem with a Windows 7 laptop that has an Atheros n/g adapter not be able to connect at all.
Replace all Netgear WG102 Wireless G AP's that worked without issue. Replaced them cuz I wanted 802.11n connectivity.
Any input would be greatly appreciated!

that could be any number of issues. The best way to track down the issue is to clear the logs on the controller and the applicable AP and attempt to connect. review the logs after the fact and there may be a clue there (and post them here?).
Also, try operating the radio in b/g or g mode as a test. I've come across some clients that seem to have difficulty with procurve mixed mode radios eg: n/a, n/g, n/b/g.
Also what kind of environment are you operating this in?
