Are you speaking about the password of the router or the password of the wireless network ?
If you don't know the password of the router , then you will need to reset the router and use the default password of the router.
Once you reset the router, you will need to reconfigure it.
If you are looking for the wireless password, you can find it on the set up page of the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router.

The family settings for my XBox turned on on their own. i do not know the password because I've never used the family settings.I can't play Halo or watch the majority of movies available on...


First I would try a few simple passwords such as 1234, 1111, 0123, things like that. If you are unable to figure out the password then you should be able to return the system back to its default settings.

To do this just go to your dashboard, then go to the system tab. There should be an option to restore all settings, this should remove the family settings.

Also you can try to log into the account that has power over the family settings and change them that way.

hopefully this helped

Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

You need to set up a network password. The easiest is to set up WEP (wired equivalent privacy). Chapter 3 of the user manual (downloadable from http://kb.netgear.com/app/) will give you a tutorial and will walk you through set up. This will keep others from using your wireless access. Make sure that you record your network password for use with your other wireless units.
Let me know if you have any further questions.

Find pass key for our lap top for the family network.


Log into your router's web interface, if possible through a computer connected to the router by cable, by starting an internet browser and navigatng to its maintenance IP address, usually set by many manufacturers to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. An authentication request will come up. As you haven't speciffied your router model, there are routers whose both user name and password fields are set to 'admin'. Other routers use 'admin' as user name only, requiring the password field to be left empty. Once you get into the router's web interface, go to the wireless settings, and change the wireless passphrase to a new one of your choice. Make sure to change the other devices, which use to connect to the router, to the same new passphrase.
If you need further details, please, provide your router model and manufacturer.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Regards, Carlos

When you set up your router you probably assigned and administrators password to restrict access to the routers admin pages. When enabling wireless security a security key would have been assigned to authenticate clients attempting to attach to the router. It is the security key that the Ipod needs to access the router. To verify what the security key is login to the routers admin pages and check it.

Password Problems


Maybe you are getting LIMITED OR NO CONNECTIVITY. This happens when the wireless adapter is able to find a network but the pc cannot get an ip address. One of the reason for that is that your wireless network might be secured and you missed to enter the correct network key when you were asked by the computer. The wireless security is set on the wireless router, SO WHEN YOU SET THE PROFILE ON YOUR WIRELESS ADAPTER, YOU SHOULD ALREADY HAVE THE WIRELESS SETTINGS FROM YOUR WIRELESS ROUTER. THEY HAVE TO MATCH FOR YOU TO HAVE A COMPLETE CONNECTION.
