I think you meant the access key password for your wireless security and not the password for the router itself (2 separate passwords).
I'll give you both solutions starting with the wireless key password.
1. access the router configuration page by typing http://192.168.1.1 in your browsr. 2. This should pop up a log in window asking for user name & password 3. The default settings for a linksys router say to leave the username blank and type admin for the password. 4. once you're in look for the Wireless tab and click it then click on wireless security 5. your password will be listed there in the shared key box.
Now if its your router access password that you need you'll need to reset the router if you can't remember it and then follow the steps above to create a wireless security password. Here's how you reset the router. Remember that all custom settings you may have set will be erased and the router will go back to original factory configuration settings
1. On the back of the router you'll find a small hole or indentation and it may or may not have the word reset printed by it. 2. Find a paper clip or something of the same size and use it to press the reset button for about 2-3 seconds 3. Router will be reset
Good luck

How do I change the password on the kindle for the wireless network?


To add a new Wi-Fi Network:

If you don't see the network you want to connect to in the list of detected networks, you can add it by choosing "Enter other Wi-Fi network" at the bottom of the list of detected networks.
  1. Make sure you are within range of the network you want to add, and that you know the network name and password (if required).
  2. Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  3. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  4. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks.
  5. Use the 5-way controller to navigate down to "Enter other Wi-Fi network" and press to select.
  6. Enter the name of the Wi-Fi network that you want to add.
  7. Enter the password (if required). Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard. You can continue to use the keyboard while the Symbol menu is displayed.
  8. Choose "submit." Kindle connects to the new Wi-Fi network.
If your Kindle fails to connect to the new Wi-Fi network, it will display an "unable to connect" message. You can try manually entering all the network information for the Wi-Fi network by choosing "set up network" when you see the "unable to connect" message. If you don't know the network information, try connecting to a different network, or contact the network's administrator.

To forget a Wi-Fi network:

You can tell Kindle to forget the Wi-Fi network you're connected to so that your Kindle doesn't connect to it automatically in the future.
  1. While connected to the network that you want to forget, press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks. You may have to wait a moment as your Kindle detects networks in range. The Wi-Fi network you are currently connected to displays the word "forget" next to it in the list of available networks.
  4. Choose "forget" to disconnect from the network.

To connect to a Wi-Fi network:

  1. Press the Home button, then press the Menu button.
  2. Navigate to "Settings" by moving the 5-way controller down, then press the 5-way controller to select.
  3. Select "view" next to "Wi-Fi Settings" to display a list of detected Wi-Fi networks. You may have to wait a moment as your Kindle detects networks in range. Kindle automatically scans for available Wi-Fi networks at periodic intervals. To rescan for available networks at any time, select "rescan."
  4. Select "connect" to connect to a network. If you see a lock symbol next to "connect," the network requires a password to connect.
  5. If necessary, enter the Wi-Fi network password, and choose "submit." Press the Symbol key to enter numbers or characters not present on the Kindle keyboard.
Once you are connected to a Wi-Fi network, Kindle automatically connects to it again whenever that network is in range. If more than one previously used network is in range, your Kindle automatically connects to the network that was most recently used.

Tip: Once your Kindle connects to a Wi-Fi network, that network displays "forget" next to it in the list of available networks. Selecting "forget" disconnects your Kindle from that Wi-Fi network and also prevents Kindle from automatically connecting to it in the future.

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.

I am trying to connect my iPhone 5 S to my wireless network and have forgotten my password. HELP. To connect to wi-fi I need a password and can not remember the password as this router was set up years ago


Firstly log into your router from your computer. If you don't know the username and password, try the default one which is Username: admin Password: Admin. Check under Wireless setting and you will see the current password listed there. You can change it to a new one if required. Just remember to save after you've done any changes.

    I'm trying to connect my Kindle 3 to my wireless network (Cisco Linksys wireless-N broadband router) and I get the error message "unable to connect to wi-fi network. The password you entered is...


    Four reasons come to mind that may prevent you from connecting:
    1. Wi-Fi Passwords are case sensitive. Please check again if you entered the password with proper casing and you did not put any extra white space in front or behind. I know, this sounds annoying, but it is really the most common cause for connection problems.
    2. Give your network a unique SSID. This is the network name that shows up in the list of detected networks. Default names like LINKSYS can be troublesome if a neighbor one block down the street happens to have a router from the same company.
    3. Some routers have a MAC address filter as a security measure, limiting service to devices specifically whitelisted. If your router is set up for this, add your Kindle's MAC address to the list of permitted devices. See your router's configuration under Wireless > Wireless MAC Filter. You can check the MAC of your Kindle from its settings page (press HOME, MENU, select SETTINGS, see paragraph headlined "Device Info".
    4. There are twelve different standards for Wi-Fi transmission collected under the hood IEEE 802.11. The four most dominant transmission modes are called a, b, g and n. They differ in radio frequency, modulation method and data rate. Kindle supports the two standards IEEE 802.11 b and g only, which is not really a problem because all wireless routers I ever encountered support one or both of these, too. However, the Linksys N-series can be set up to use 802.11n exclusively, not allowing for b or g connections. In the router menu Wireless > Basic Wireless Settings (Manual Setup), make sure the network mode is configured as "Mixed".
    Please add a comment to this solution if one of these items resolved your problem. If you suffered from a different issue I did not think of, it would be nice to drop me a line, too. Other people will benefit from any experience you made.

    Ipod wi fi conection


    Wi-Fi Functionality
    1. Connects over the last Wi-Fi network you used that's available.
    2. If no Wi-Fi networks you've used are available, iPod touch will scan for Wi-Fi networks and show a list of Wi-Fi networks in range. Tap a network and, if necessary, enter the password to join. Networks that require a password show a lock icon (307189_1.jpg) next to them.
    3. Option to manually enter your Wi-Fi network name/SSID (if the Wi-Fi network is configured not to broadcast or be displayed to the public). If necessary, enter the password to join.
    When iPod touch is connected to a Wi-Fi network, the Wi-Fi icon (307189_2.jpg) in the status bar at the top of the screen shows connection strength. The more bars you see, the stronger the connection.
    Wi-Fi Settings
    1. Turn Wi-Fi on or off.
      Choose Settings > Wi-Fi and turn Wi-Fi on or off.
    2. Set iPod touch to ask if you want to join a new Wi-Fi network.
      When you are trying to access the Internet, by using Safari or YouTube for example, and you are not in range of a Wi-Fi network you have previously used, this option tells iPod touch to look for another network. iPod touch will display a list of all available Wi-Fi networks that you can choose from. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon (307189_1.jpg).

      If "Ask to Join Networks" is turned off, you must manually join a network to connect to the Internet when a previously used network is unavailable.

      Choose Wi-Fi and turn "Ask to Join Networks" on or off. If you turn "Ask to Join Networks" off, you must join new networks manually.
    3. Join a Wi-Fi network manually.
      Choose Wi-Fi, wait a moment as iPod touch detects networks in range, then choose a network. If necessary, enter a password and tap Join. Networks that require a password appear with a lock icon.
    4. Make iPod touch forget a network, so that the device doesn't join it automatically. Choose Wi-Fi and tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network you've joined before. Then tap "Forget this Network."
    5. Connect to a closed Wi-Fi network (an available Wi-Fi network that isn't shown in the list of scanned networks).
      Choose Wi-Fi, then tap Other and enter the network name. If the network requires a password, choose Security, tap the type of security the network uses, and enter the password. You must already know the network name, password, and security type to connect to a closed network. Some Wi-Fi networks may require you to enter or adjust additional settings, such as a client ID or static IP address. Ask the network administrator which settings to use.
    6. Adjust settings to connect to a Wi-Fi network
      Choose Wi-Fi, then tap the arrow (307189_3.jpg) next to a network.
