Borg80 wonders why -xtreg, fe- and -xtivreg2, fe- did not give him the same standard errors when a non-IV model was specified. It is because the default for -xtreg- is to produce small-sample-corrected standard errors and t statistics, whereas the default for -xtivreg2- (like that of -ivreg2-) is to produce large-sample standard errors and z statistics. They will produce the same standard errors if the - small- option is used:

xtreg ys k n, fe
xtivreg2 ys k n, fe small
