The default wireless passowrd or network key is located at the bottom left of the 2wire router. You will find a sticker that indicates the Serial Number, System Password and Wireless Network Key. The Wireless Network Password is is the 10 Digit Code located under the S/N.

If in any case you want to personalize the Wireless Network Key. You can access the gateway by opening a browser the type 192.168.1.254 it will ask you for a password use the System Password on the sticker. Click on Home Network then Click on Wireless Settings. You can also change the Network Name or SSID, The Authentication and the Wireless Network Key

How to connect an iPhone to the Internet


Connecting your iPhone to the internet is an easy process. You just simply use any application on your iPhone which uses internet service.

Your iPhone can either use WiFi or Cellular for internet access.

- A WiFi network is simply a wireless network. You can find them at coffee shops, libraries or even at your house if you a router setup for wireless access.

- Cellular data networks allow Internet connectivity over the cellular network. Check your carrier's network coverage in your area for availability.

When you use an application on your iPhone that requires internet service it will either connect to the last WiFi network used, or if that network is not available it will list all available networks in range. You can simply tap on the network you wish to join and it will connect. If the network requires a password it will show a lock icon. If no Wifi networks are available your iPhone will connect over the cellular data network and fees may apply.


To see all the Wi-Fi networks in range, from the Home screen choose Settings > Wi-Fi. Tap a network to join it.

I want to locate my wi fi password for my iphone.


I am assuming that you are trying to connect to the internet using the built in wifi instead of the 3G. To clarify, iphones don't have passwords for wifi. Wireless access points and wireless routers are the ones that have passwords. If you want to connect to the internet using an access point or router you must get the SSID of the router or access point and also the encryption and password to join said access point or router.

Once you have this information go to your iphone and select the settings icon. Then select the Wi-Fi, then turn on the wi-fi (if it is off), then under choose a network select "Other" and then type in the name (which is the SSID), tap on "Security", select the encryption that matches your access point or router (wep, wpa, wpa2, etc) tap on "Other network" (on the top left hand corner) to go back to the configuration page, and then type in the correct password.

Once you have done this your iphone will automatically connect to the access point or router whenever it is in range and connect to the 3G when it is out of range of the access point or router.

Hope this helps.

Hi, please perform the below steps to configure settings on the router:

1. Connect a computer to the router using any one of the 4 available ports.
2. Open a web browser (Internet Explorer, Mozilla Firefox or Safari).
3. Access the router, usually with http://192.168.0.1 or http://www.routerlogin.com.
4. Login to the router with the Username as "admin" and Password as "password" (please note that the Username and Password are case sensitive).
5. Click on WAN setup from left menu. Check the box for 'Disable Dos Protection'.
6. Set the MTU size to 1400. Click apply.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I can't connect my itouch to my wifi. It asks for a password for my wifi. I don't know the password for my wifi.


For some 2wire device you will find the wireless password underneath it its commonly a combination of 10 digit there should be a sticker on the 2wire and look for that 10 digit code if you cannot find it there contact your Internet Provider so the can provide you that wireless key.......

Iphone will not accept Password in Zyxel Router


Try disabling the password temporarily to be sure you can make the connection.
When you reenable, be sure you enter that long string of letters and numbers into the iPhone as the key (and not the passphrase).

Cannot connect IPhone to 2wire :( HELP!


I had this exact same frustrating problem. The problem was a simple password issue. Although I had changed the password on the modem to my own personal one, that password only affected the administrator settings. When I used this particular password on my iphone it would put the checkmark next to the 2wire, but I would not get the wifi symbol at the top of the screen. I fixed the problem by using the 10-digit password supplied on the actual router instead. I told my iphone to 'forget' the network, then reselected it and when it requested my password I typed in the 10 digit number and 'presto,' i had wifi symbology! I hope this helps.
