SOURCE: NOOK is not capable of responding to the Linksys router

The tech was correct about that matter. However you can configure the MAC to always allow the device.

  1. Find your MAC for NOOK. I think you have already did.
  2. Go to Setting and then to the Second Page to find it.
  • Configuring MAC
  • Wireless MAC Filter. To filter wireless users by MAC Address, either permitting or blocking access, click Enable.
  • If you do not wish to filter users by MAC Address, select Disable.
  • Prevent. Clicking this button will block wireless access by MAC Address.
  • Permit Only. Clicking this button will allow wireless access by MAC Address.
  • Edit MAC Address Filter List. Clicking this button will open the MAC Address Filter List. On this screen, you can list users, by MAC Address, to whom you wish to provide or block access. For easy reference, click the Wireless
  • Client MAC List button to display a list of network users by MAC Address.
  • Change these settings as described here and click the Save Settings button to apply your changes or Cancel Changes to cancel your changes.

Please rate the answer as well. Feel free to contact if you have any other problems or if this solution didn't solve the issue.
Thanks for contacting Fixya!

SOURCE: Need a WEP Key to

If your husband set up the network he will have set the WEP key (basically its a password). You can either ask for the network password from him or you can just let him put it in when he gets the "nook"

SOURCE: I am trying to connect

Hi,
Maybe it is asking for the wireless network password / key. Have you tried using the password for your wireless network, if your wireless router has been set with a password?

SOURCE: my nook wont connect to

Go to your router setup page in Internet explorer. 192.168.1.1
If default leave user name blank and password is admin.
Click on Wireless and in the basic wireless setting there is a tab that says
wireless network mode. Set the mode to MIXED, save settings and try to connect.

SOURCE: I cannot connect the nook using Dlink 514. Trying

If you do not remember your user name and password then try reseting the router (there's a reset button on the back of the router, press and hold it for about 30 seconds), the use the default user name and password: default user name: user default password: (none, leave this field blank) Once you are in the routers firmware change your setting to what you want them to be and make sure you write them down, save them somewhere safe!
good luck!

Hi i have changed my wep key and reset router ok no i tried to get back on my computers wifi it brings up the avail wifi but wen i got to my wifi it keep coming back that i cant conect


Did you change the WEP key on your computers? If not, they remember the old WEP key, and when they try to connect, the router won't let them because they don't have the new WEP key.

The exact instructions will vary depending on the operating system.
In windows 7 or earlier, you should be able to click on wireless icon in your system tray (near the bottom right-hand corner). Find your network in the list, the right-click and choose "Properties" and make your security changes.

Windows 8 or later? Try this:

Can't connect Nook internet wireless


further isolate the problem:

1. is the nook the only device that can connect wirelessly?
2. Make sure that the Password or the Network key is correct.
3. turn off/on the router and the nook
4. 'forget the network' on the wifi section on the nook
5. last recourse is to change the wireless settings (WEP) or do a firmware upgrade on the router.
-note that changing wireless settings will affect all your wifi devices. this means that you need to reconnect each one of them. if you have a lot, better think twice and just call tech support for further assistance

Access linksys wireless-g wrt54g with Nook tablet


Change the wireless network name and then change the key.
Try to connect to the new wireless network and see if that works.
If not then you can try to upgrade the firmware of your Linksys router.
After upgrading the firmware, reset the router and reconfigure it.

I have Actiontec gt704wg wireless and am trying to set up my nook. It asks for a password and i dont know it


In order to get the wifi WEP key for your network, turn over the bottom of the modem- the default WEP key is on a sticker-
Bar that, on your pc open up a web browser, type in 192.168.1.1 in the address bar- by default the user name and password are admin and password- go to the wireless tab, and basic security settings- the WEP key would be listed there
