You will need to login to the management page of the Router.

EG: http://192.168.1.1

From there go into the wireless settings and you should be able to see or change the password form there.

If you have forgotten the management admin password you will most likely need to do a full reset on your router. There is usually a button on the bottom or side that can be pushed with a Pen. However before doing this make sure you know what your ISP username / passwords and settings are as you will need to set these up again.

How to set up internet on Samsung Jet


Ensure that you have the appropriate network key code needed to enable you to access a secure Wi-Fi network.


If you are connecting to a secure Wi-Fi network with MAC address restrictions, you will require pre-authorisation for the router. You will need to find your Samsung Jet's MAC (Media Access Control) address. This is a 12-character code which may be needed by the network controller to enable the phone to connect. See Getting the Samsung Jet's MAC address below.


You can get to the Wi-Fi application either via the main menu or using a homescreen Wi-Fi Widget.
  1. To get to the Wi-Fi application via the main menu, press the MENU button (either on the home screen or the hexagonal button beneath)
  2. In the main menu, swipe your finger sideways to go through the menu pages until you see the Wi-Fi icon. Press to select.
  3. The Wi-Fi application opens.
  4. Alternatively, to use the Wi-Fi Widget, from standby, press the home screen. The Widget toolbar opens up.
  5. Scroll down to find the Wi-Fi Widget icon. Press the Wi-Fi Widget. The Wi-Fi Widget will pop up on the main screen.
  6. Press the Wi-Fi Widget on the main part of the display to launch the Wi-Fi application. The Wi-Fi application opens.
  7. Once in the Wi-Fi screen, press the large Wi-Fi button in the middle of the screen to turn it on. Wi-Fi is activated and the button turns blue.
  8. Press SEARCH Nearby Wi-Fi access points (APs) will appear as small circles on the display, with their names next to them.
  9. Press the circle representing the Wi-Fi Netowrk you want to connect to. An options panel appears.
  10. You can press CONNECT to connect to the network or press ADD if you want to add it to a list of preferred networks for easy access later.
  11. You are taken into a settings menu for the Wi-Fi access point. If the Wi-Fi access point requires a network key code, scroll down to the Network Key panel. Press to select.
  12. The numberpad appears. Type in the network key code and press DONE. You are returned to the previous settings screen. Press SAVE
  13. A list of connections appears. Press the back arrow button
  14. If you initially pressed CONNECT, the phone will connect to the selected Wi-Fi network and a confirmation message will appear. The display now shows the new connection, illustrated by blue dots linking the circles onscreen (Figure 15).
  15. If you initially pressed ADD, you will be returned to the Wi-Fi screen. Press the circle representing the Wi-Fi network you want to connect to. A pop up panel appears.
  16. Press CONNECT. You will be connected and the connection illustrated onscreen.
Press the back button to return to the home screen.


  1. From the home screen press MENU to enter the main menu (Figure 1).
  2. In the main menu, press INTERNET
  3. Choose which browser option you want (Home, Enter URL, Bookmarks, etc.) (Figure 18) and press to select. If you press Home you will be taken to the pre-loaded home page.
  4. If required, use the numberpad to type in an URL or scroll a list to select bookmarks. When an URL is completed press GO. Alternatively press the bookmark you wish to access. You will taken to the web page requested.



  1. Activate Wi-Fi and press SEARCH, as before.
  2. When the Wi-Fi access point you want to connect to appears on the display (Figure 8), press it to select.
  3. A pop up options panel appears (Figure 9). Press DETAILS
  4. Details of the Wi-Fi access point appear onscreen.
  5. Scroll down by dragging your finger up the screen. Towards the bottom of the settings list, DEVICE MAC appears, with a string of 12 charactesr beneath (Figure 21). Each handset has an individual MAC address, and this panel will display your Samsung Jet's unique Mac address.
Make a note of the MAC address. You will need it if you want to use the Samsung Jet's Wi-Fi to access a secure Wi-Fi network using MAC address restrictions. This can be added into the wireless router settings access list.

My ( brother ) printer is asking for WLAN access point/ router and I'm trying to pair it with my IPhone 4S. Can anyone help?


You can't pair wi-fi to bluetooth, which is what you appear to be attempting. The printer is looking to join a computer network and needs the password for your home wi-fi network. Since your phone is not an access pint, you can;t connect them directly.
After you have the printer on your network, if it supports AirPlay, then you can print from the phone to the printer.

What does need a data connection mean


To use Google maps or some other programs (like games), you need to be connected to a Wi-Fi network, not the cellular network. You will need to be in an area with an open wi-fi network or have a wireless router in your home. Find your password for the router's wi-fi network (it should be password-protected) and the SSID; you also need the encryption type (WAP, WEP, etc.).

Press Apps on the Home Screen. Then press Settings and then Wi-Fi. Select Scan to locate available networks. While on the Wi-Fi tab, press Add Network. Enter the SSID with the keyboard, then touch Security type to select the encryption for your router. Then enter the password and finally press Save. (Some wi-fi routers will want the MAC address before you can add a device to the network. Go to the Menu - Advanced from the Wi-fi tab to get the information.)

If the wi-fi network has been set up on the Tab, press Apps on the Home Screen. Then press Settings and look for the Wi-Fi On/Off icon. Toggle this to on. (You can also access this by touching the time on the Home Screen. Then touch Wi-fi on the Quick Settings list.)

I hope this helps.

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.

I can not connect my i phone


Hi,

From your problem description it looks like you want to connect your iPhone to your wireless home network?

Whenever you use a internet enabled application your iPhone will connect to the most recent used Wi-Fi network(access point/router).

If the last used network is not available, then your iPhone will list all available networks in range.

If you are in range of your wireless router, then it will be listed in the available networks box.
To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range, from the Home screen choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it. If needed enter a password. The password will be the security password you set on your router(WEP/WPA key).

If you do not know your password, you can read my tech article by clicking here. It will go over how to obtain your router password.

If there are no Wi-Fi networks available then your phone will use the cellular data network and fee's may apply.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Regards,
G33k

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.

What is wi fi whats does it do


Hi,

Wi-Fi stands for wireless fidelity. The term Wi-Fi, which is alternatively pushed by the Wi-Fi Alliance, a trade group that pioneered commercialization of the technology. Wi-Fi is mostly about connecting to the Internet without physically attaching your computer to anything. Mostly it's about using laptop computers.


A Wi-Fi enabled device such as a personal computer, video game console, mobile phone, MP3 player or personal digital assistant can connect to the Internet when within range of a wireless network connected to the Internet. The coverage of one or more (interconnected) access points — called a hotspot — can comprise an area as small as a few rooms or as large as many square miles. Coverage in the larger area may depend on a group of access points with overlapping coverage. Wi-Fi technology has been used in wireless mesh networks, for example, in London.

In addition to private use in homes and offices, Wi-Fi can provide public access at Wi-Fi hotspots provided either free-of-charge or to subscribers to various commercial services. Organizations and businesses - such as those running airports, hotels and restaurants - often provide free-use hotspots to attract or assist clients. Enthusiasts or authorities who wish to provide services or even to promote business in selected areas sometimes provide free Wi-Fi access.
Routers that incorporate a digital subscriber line modem or a cable modem and a Wi-Fi access point, often set up in homes and other premises, can provide Internet-access and internetworking to all devices connected (wirelessly or by cable) to them. One can also connect Wi-Fi devices in ad-hoc mode for client-to-client connections without a router. Wi-Fi also enables places that would traditionally not have network access to connect, for example bathrooms, kitchens and garden sheds.

Good luck and have a nice day.
rating the solution is highly appreciated.

I purchased a new IPOD and I can not access the wifi from my Linksys wireless router.. I reset my Linksys router to try to solve this problem. And at first when the light was amber I was able to have...


Resolution If you know there is a nearby Wi-Fi network, but you are unable to locate it on the Settings > Wi-Fi screen:
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • If you are using a personal Wi-Fi network, verify the Wi-Fi router is connected to power and turned on.
  • Wi-Fi networks configured as "closed" or "private" do not broadcast the network name to Wi-Fi devices.
    • Join a "closed" or "private" network by tapping Settings > Wi-Fi > Other and entering the Wi-Fi network name, security, and password.
After joining a Wi-Fi network, if you notice the signal strength is low or intermittent
  • Move closer to the Wi-Fi router or hotspot.
  • Check for any sources of potential interference.
  • Remove any cases or attachments on your device that could interfere with a Wi-Fi signal.
If you are unable to access the Internet while connected
  • If you are using a commercial Wi-Fi network that requires a special login or subscription, see this article for more information.
  • If you are in a location with multiple Wi-Fi networks, verify that you are selecting the correct network.
  • Verify that the Wi-Fi network settings are correct:
    • Tap Settings > Wi-Fi.
    • Locate the Wi-Fi network you are currently using and tap ts1398_2.jpg
      blank.gif
  • You can configure network-specific settings, including IP address, DNS, and Search Domain settings.
  • Use "Forget this Network" to reset settings for this particular Wi-Fi network, including the password. This is also useful if you identify a network issue and want to prevent the device from automatically using this network in the future.
  • Use "Renew Lease" to acquire new IP address, DNS, and Search Domain information from the Wi-Fi network.
  • Note: If the Wi-Fi network uses MAC address filtering, you will need to add the MAC address to the access list for the Wi-Fi router. The MAC address for your device is listed as the Wi-Fi Address in Settings > General > About.
If you are still unable to join a Wi-Fi network, or are unable to access the Internet while connected, try the following
  • Restart the device
    • Hold the power button until "slide to power off" appears. Slide to power off your device. When it is off, press the power button to turn it back on.
  • Reset network settings by selecting Settings > General > Reset > Reset Network Settings. Note: This will reset all network settings, including passwords, VPN, and APN settings.
  • iPhone only: If you continue to experience issues, consider turning off Wi-Fi and using the cellular data connection instead of Wi-Fi.
Additional Information If using a Wi-Fi router at home, refer to your user manual/documentation to assist you with some of these suggestions.
  • Check the manufacturer's website for your Wi-Fi router for firmware or software updates.
  • Verify the Wi-Fi router can broadcast an 802.11b/g signal. If using a 802.11n Wi-Fi router, consult the manual/documentation for how to configure the Wi-Fi router for 802.11b/g compatibility.
  • If you are using multiple WEP keys on your Wi-Fi router, try configuring your Wi-Fi router to use only a single WEP key.
  • Try or resetting (or turning off and then on again) your Wi-Fi router. Note: If your ISP also provides cable or phone service, check with them before attempting this step to avoid interruption of service.
  • Disable wireless encryption or security on the Wi-Fi router to rule out encryption issues. If this resolves the issue, try using a different encryption or security protocol.

Wi-fi


you may not be able to join these networks as these networks are from your neighbourhood who have protected them by passwords. you may try 12345 as somebody might have kept this default password. But again you can not access networks protected by passwords unless you know it.
you may ask your friend or neighbour who can share his net with you.
