My home wireless network is secured with a WPA2 63 character ASCII pass phrase that includes a space (blank) character. All wireless devices in my home can connect to it except for my Atrix 4G phones. I changed the pass phrase on my router to replace the space with a non-blank character, and my Atrix was able to connect.

The ASCII space character is valid in a WPA2 pass phrase, but the Atrix 4g evidently does not support it.

I just thought I'd mention this in case anyone else runs into this problem.

It would be interesting if some of you could confirm my findings for WPA2 or any other wireless security protocol that permits ASCII space characters.
