You have to make sure you are using the same security protocol on both devices - there are various types of wireless security such as WEP, WPA, etc. Check again on both the computer and the router to make sure they are both the same.

Try and reset your router by usually holding the reset button. It will restore the router to the default settings.

How can i flash an android phone which its pattern have forgotten??


Use your android Device Manager And unlock the phone

Unlock your Android device using Android Device Manager (ADM)

As already mentioned, the following method only applies to devices that have Android Device Manager enabled.
  1. On a computer or other mobile phone, visit: google.com/android/devicemanager
  2. Sign in using your Google login details that you also used on your locked phone.
  3. In the ADM interface, select the device you need to unlock (if it isn't already selected).
  4. Select 'Lock'
  5. In the appearing window, enter a temporary password. You don't have to enter a recovery message. Now click 'Lock' again.
  6. If it was successful, you should see a confirmation below the box with the buttons Ring, Lock and Erase.
  7. On your phone you should now see a password field in which you should enter the temporary password. This should unlock your phone.
  8. Now, before you go on with your life, go to your phone's lock screen settings and disable the temporary password.
  9. That's it!

How can I find the network if it doesn't show up on my device no more


By network I am assuming you mean the WiFi connection and not the Carrier ... so go to Settings >> Wifi >> and the list of available WiFi devices will appear. Select the one you want, you may have to enter a password if it is secure. That's all. I hope this is helpful, please click the Helpful Button below if it was. Good luck.

I didn't realize that was putting a pass word n .How can I open my kindle/


Forgot my password

Did you forget the password used to unlock your Kindle? If so, you'll need to reset the device to gain access. By resetting, your Kindle will be restored to factory defaults, which means your registration information and content will be removed, and all settings will return to the defaults.

To reset a Kindle Fire 1st Generation:
1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left
2. Use the keypad to enter characters into the password/PIN field four times
3. You'll be prompted to reset your Kindle Fire. Tap "Ok reset"

To reset all other Kindle Fire models:
1. From the lock screen, slide the Unlock Bar from right to left
2. Use the keypad to enter characters into the password/PIN field five times.
3. When prompted to reset your Kindle Fire, tap "Reset"

To reset a Kindle 2nd Generation, Kindle Keyboard, or Kindle DX:
1. Slide and release the power switch to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Enter "resetmykindle" in the password field and press the enter key on the key pad
3. Wait several minutes while your Kindle restarts

To reset a Kindle (5-way controller):
1. Press and release the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Select the keyboard key once on the password screen and enter "resetmykindle" in the password field, then select "Enter"

To reset a Kindle Touch or Kindle Paperwhite:
1. Press and release the power button to turn on the device or exit sleep mode
2. Tap the password field to bring up the onscreen keyboard
3. Enter "111222777" and select "OK"

If you don't remember your Parental Controls password, you can deregister your device instead of resetting, as long as you're connected to a wireless network. You'll need to redownload your content, but items that were transferred via USB will be kept. Here's what to do:

1. Visit the Manage Your Content and Devices (www.amazon.com/manageyourkindle) page on your computer
2. Select the "Manage Your Devices" link
3. Select "Deregister" to deregister your device from your account
Sync your Kindle, then register again.

If you need help with your Wi-Fi password, please contact your Internet Service Provider or router manufacturer.

How do I connect to wi-fi?


To start you need to check you are entering the right password! The password is the one for the WiFi! Is it written on a card or on the router, it will be case sensitive!

You do not say what type of password was set and if you have forgotten it or just want to reset from a known password..
If you just want to change your gmail login password
- Go to google.com/accounts on the tablet browser
- Sign in
- "Change Password"
- Go back to the Home Screen on the tablet
- Open the GMail app, clicked on Menu, then Refresh -- you will get a sync error
- Wait for a notification to re-enter your password (a triangle with an exclamation point in the tablet notificaiton bar and/or something in the gmail screen)
- Enter the new password

This simple solution sometimes works:
Turn it off.
Turn back on.
When you get the warning triangle in the notification bar, open the notification.
You will then get a login screen.
Input your new password.

Pattern Lock- Incorrectly enter pattern 5 times (4 or more points each time) . Pop up message will appear Click Next and you will be prompted for goole a/c details or security for pattern lock.
tap forgotten pattern and on next screen enter goole account details. Then next screen allows you to choose a new screen lock option.

Locked with PIN or password _Try Screenlock bypass pro from play store.
The only other solution is a hard reset which is only as a last resort. You need to access Androids Recovery mode. Check your manual. Most devices it is power off then power up holding volume + and power buttons.
Once in this mode use power down button to highlight "wipedata/factory reset option, then use power button to select it.
Vol - button to to scroll and select yes delete all user data option with power button. When device reset select option to reboot now and the device will turn on unlocked but you will have lost your personal data.

Face unlock - you were asked to provide a pattern or PIN backup when you set it. Just bypass and enter PIN or pattern.
Good Luck

Wifi setup password


Confirm you do not have caps lock on, or are on a laptop with numlock on first. Assuming those basic settings are off, next you want to try and add the password in cleartext. In the wireless list, right click on your wifi network and select properties. Underneath the network security key should be a check box that says show characters. Click that and your password should be readable. Confirm it's correct or retype if not and try again.
If that does not work you may need to log into the router itself and reset the wifi password.

I have an Amazon Kimble and now have a new WuFi service. I don't have or don't rember ehw password so I can't get into the store to download books. Can you help?


Is it WiFi in your home? If that's the case, and, you still can't remember/find your network's username and password--try resetting the wireless router (or access point--AP) to default factory settings. Use your PC or laptop to reenter factory settings with the router's/AP's networking address entered into a browser (likely Internet Explorer)--it should appear as something like 168.192.0.1 (depending upon your particular router)--it's in the manual.

If you don't have a manual, download the PDF version from the router/AP manufacturer online. Navigate within the menus provided on your PC's/laptop's screen. One of the menus should offer default factory reset. Indicate "Yes." (If you can't read a PDF file on your PC/laptop, download and install the free Adobe Reader from adobe.com.)

Once the router is reset, the manual indicates the temporary username and password to use for WiFi. This is the time, though, to invoke security once again for the router/AP--enter a sensible and secure username and password--something memorable, yet difficult for others to determine. Use letters, numbers, and even certain special characters. Follow the instructions to set up security, replacing the simple username and password--use WPA2 or WPA (encryption). WPA2 is the most secure.

Now's the time to configure the Kindle or other tablet: You need to find the WiFI settings menu in your Kindle--after enabling WiFI in the tablet, find your router/AP user name you just configured via your PC/Laptop in the Kindle menu--perhaps among those from other WiFi signals from neighbors or businesses. Choose your username, and enter the password. It should connect--securely now.

In a few locales in America (say, in California), not configuring security even proves illegal. Always secure your wireless network--people actually may scan for networks in order to share bandwidth--or, far worse, to garner sensitive personal info and otherwise hack in. Even these days, many people refuse to take sensible steps towards security--they're happy to get a connection of any type--not being locked out of their WiFI by forgotten security, either. That's a "shortcut to thinking."

Would like to unlock cell phone


The Pantech phone was formerly sold by Cingular, but it is now sold by AT&T. Because it is a flip phone, the Pantech does not have a keypad lock. It does, however, have a feature to lock the device and prevent unwanted phone calls being made by other people. Locking and unlocking the phone requires you to know your password.
  1. ep 1 If the main screen reads "Phone Locked," choose "Unlock" from the lower left-hand portion of the screen. Enter your password and select OK. Entering the wrong password three times will display "ENTER PUK." You will need to call customer service to resolve the issue.
  2. Step 2 To lock the phone, choose "Menu" from the main screen. Select "Settings" and then scroll down and select "Security." Choose "Phone Lock" and press the left or right arrow on your directional pad. Press "OK" and enter your password.
  3. Step 3 Change your password by selecting "Menu" from the main screen. Go to "Settings," then "Security," and then "Change Password." If you have not yet set a password, the default is 1234. Enter either your password or the default and press "OK." Enter your new password, press "OK," and then verify the password by re-entering it.
