Question about Wireless Access Points
i know my network name , but have forgotten the netword password. I use a netgear dg834gt router and my two computers work fine. I have just bout an ipod touch which can connect via wi fi. It shows my network , but I cannot sign on as i have forgotten my password for the network. Netgear suggested using the WEP Key 1 , but that didn't work and now they said i should contact apple which is ludicrous.
On the wireless settings page it says 128 bit encrypted and nothing in the passphrase box.
What should I do?
I cant remember my password to my i touch and i cant access it now can someone help?.....

Key 1 should work in most cases. If you have additional keys listed, try them also.
If none work, turn off encryption and connect your new device, then create a new password.
The manual page is here:

Sorry you will have to set it up again
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.
hope this helps
