How do I setup the wi-fi Internet connection if I don't know the passwords?

Everything the manual says to try. I have three connections that say "excellent". The first one says "Security WPA2 PSK". Then it requests a password. I have no idea what the password is.

You can probably find the password in the setup manual/instructions that came with your modem/router.

Hope this helps.

hello!

normally, if you configure the wireless security settings wirelessly, it will automatically disconnect you from the network. you have to input the security key on the laptop first before it connects you back to the network.

i suggest, if you really like to configure the settings of your router, get an ethernet cable, connect it directly to the laptop so you can access and configure the router settings and to avoid from being disconnected

SOURCE: connecting my ipod touch to my wireless router through wi fi

Hi,

Check for the password on the router configuration page to make sure tat you are using the correct one:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.0.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router (User Name = admin Password = password unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the Key that has a black dot before it.
This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.
Enter the same password on IPOD to connect to the wireless network.

Rate it,if it helps.

SOURCE: iPOD Touch asks for password; password unknown

To configure your router, open your web browser. Type the default IP address (http://10.0.0.2) into the Location field of your browser and press the Enter key. A Login screen will appear. Use the below to log into your router.

The default user name is admin
The default password is zoomadsl

You click on the icon labeled Wireless at the top of the screen.

Set the Wireless status drop down menu to Enable
The SSID will be set to zoom by default. You probably want to change that since everybody will know this type of network.

You can Hide the SSID if you would like by choosing True on the Hide SSID option. This will make it harder for people to know how to connect to your network. Just remember that you will not be able to see this as well.

Under the Encryption you will need to pick your Encryption type. If you pick WEP-64 bit then you will want to click the Passphrase box and place your passphrase and have it generate a random key. If the Default Key is set to 1 then you would use the Key1 key. Make sure you click on the Save Changes so that it keeps these setting.s

Hope that helps!

I just switched to a different internet provider. Alexa says she is having trouble connecting. What should I do?


You probably need to connect to your new wireless router.

Open the Alexa app.
In the Alexa app, open the left navigation panel and then select Settings.
Select your device and then select Update Wi-Fi. If you're adding a new device to your account, select Set up a new device instead.
On your Echo device, press and hold the Action button for five seconds. The light ring changes to orange, and your mobile device connects to your Echo device. A list of available Wi-Fi networks appear in the app.
Note: The Alexa app may ask you to manually connect your device to your Echo device through your Wi-Fi settings.
Select your Wi-Fi network and enter the network password (if required). If you don't see your Wi-Fi network, scroll down and select Add a Network (for hidden networks) or Rescan.
Optional - Save your Wi-Fi password to Amazon: Any Wi-Fi passwords saved during setup automatically appear when you connect a new Alexa device to the same Wi-Fi network. The password is also remembered if you switch between saved Wi-Fi networks. For more information, go to Saving Your Wi-Fi Passwords to Amazon FAQs.
Optional - Connect to a public network: Enter any required information if you are connecting to a public network that requires a web browser to sign in, like a school or hotel. The information could be a pre-shared password, room number, or just a button to accept conditions for using the network. This information cannot be saved to Amazon. Contact the network owner for more information.
Select Connect. After your device connects to your Wi-Fi network, a confirmation message appears in the app.

How to tune in kindle to wi fi?


From the Home screen, press the Menu button.
Select Settings, and then select view next to Wi-Fi Settings.
In the list of detected networks, choose a network to connect to it.
If your Wi-Fi network and router support WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), your Kindle will detect it.
If you don't see your network in the list, you need to add the network manually.
If the network is protected by a password or WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup), enter the password and then select Submit.If you don't know the Wi-Fi network password, contact the person who set up the Wi-Fi network.After you connect to a Wi-Fi network, your Kindle automatically connects to it again whenever that network is in range. If more than one network is in range, your Kindle automatically connects to the last network used.

How to get a connection of WI fi when we don't have a password for it?


Why don't you have a password for it? If it's coming from your router you should know the password. If it is not coming from your router, then you are out of luck.

Describe your 7" G-Netbook


There may be many reasons for this. Please check the following things one by one.

 

1. If you have another known good laptop then try it with your wi-fi router. See if the wi-fi router is able to connect to the internet

2. If you don't have another laptop then use an ethernet cable (RJ45) cable to connect to the wi-fi router. See if this helps.

3. While connected with the wi-fi router see if you can access the router. open any internet browser and type 192.168.0.0. you should get the router page. If you don't get then you have to configure the router first.

4. Check the internet settings of your browser. There will be "internet options" or similar in the menu of your browser. Click that. In the GUI you will get "connections" tab. Click that and select the proper wi-fi setup.

How do i connect to the wifi


If you need to connect your HTC Wildfire to a Wi-Fi network then check out this simple, step-by-step user guide to getting connected wirelessly

If you're using your HTC Wildfire for the first time, you can easily select the Wi-Fi network you'd like to join using the setup manager.

When you opt in for either Mobile Network or Wi-Fi, or just Wi-Fi, the Wildfire will by default try to connect to a Wi-Fi network near you.

Select the network you wish to connect to, enter the password if required and you're set up.

If you want to change the settings, or set it up for the first time, you can do this through the Settings menu.

Note: If you're attempting to access a network-based page or app, you may be required to set up a new Wi-Fi connection. When prompted, select the option to set up a new connection.

  1. Access the Wi-Fi settings menu by navigating to the Wireless & networksmenu
  2. Select Wi-Fi settings
  3. Choose a listed network, or add a hidden network by selecting Add Wi-Fi network
  4. If you choose one of the listed networks and it's secured, enter the password, press Connect and you'll be connected to that network
  5. If you wish to access a hidden network, select Add Wi-Fi network and enter the SSID
  6. If a password is required, you'll be prompted to enter this before connecting

If Wi-Fi is turned off, you can now turn this on by ticking the box in the Wireless & networks menu.

If you haven't configured your phone to access the internet yet, and you want to do it through your network carrier's data plan, bear in mind their APN settings. Contact they, in case you don't know such data. Then, go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks > Mobile networks > Access Point names'. Once there, press 'Menu > New APN', and fill in a 'Name' for it, and, at least, your carrier's data under 'APN', 'Username' and 'Password'. Then, press 'Menu > Save'. Press the back button as many times as required for you to reach the home screen you were in, prior you started making these changes.

On the other hand, if you want to access the internet through wifi (e.g. your home's wireless network, or an internet cafe), go to 'Menu > Settings > Wireless & networks' and tick the 'Wi-Fi' checkbox, in order to turn your phone's wifi radio on. Then, tap 'Wi-Fi settings', and, if the network you want to connect your phone to doesn't appear on the available networks list (e.g. a hidden network), tap 'Add Wi-Fi' network' and fill in 'Network SSID', select the security method, and fill in the password, if needed. When you finish, tap 'Save'. You can also specify how your phone will use its wifi radio. Tap 'Menu > Advanced > 'Wi-Fi sleep policy'. Again, press the back button as many times as required to return to the home screen.
Hope it works for you.

Anyway, please, let me know if I can help you any further.

Regards,
Carlos
