Hi you can change your wi-fi password by logging onto the wi-fi router.
2 options:

Option One:
Some times you can reset the router by pressing in the reset button found on the router for 10-20 seconds this will then change all your setting back to default. The default wireless passwords can normally be found the manufacture website, ISP website or at the bottom of the router depending on the model.

Option Two:
To do this you will need to connect you computer/laptop to the router with a Ethernet cable that way you do not need to use the wi-fi. Once this has been done you are required to enter your router IP address depending on the model of the router it normally 192.168.?.? (? indicates an number) (This can normally be found on the manufacture website or in the manual).

Once you have done that you are ask for a log-in and password as-long has this has not be changed you can normally find the default password and user name in the manual.

You can then change the password though the interface you will reclive once you have done the above.

If you forget the username or password, or if the configuration becomes really messed up, you can always clear all the non-volitile parameters by doing a 'factory reset'. To do this, with the router already fully booted, press and hold the reset button for 5~6 seconds and release. The router will boot back up and answer to 192.168.1.1 just as if it had just been flashed with DD-WRT.

How to connect to internet doesnt recognize router password


Are you sure of Wifi password is correct?
if so, 1st; try restarting your ipad by holding down power/sleep button untill it show "Slide to shut down" leave it off for 10 seconds & then re-open it.enter the Wifi -password, sometimes this step works.

2nd solution ; try resetting your iPad network settings, it will not affect your ipad in any thing except it will forget all entered passwords for any wifi you have already connected before. go to General from Setting, choose resett, and inside only reset network setting, shut down ipad & try to connect to the wifi again. Hope this solution work for you. Also you may try shutting down & opening your router again after 10 seconds while off. Good Luck.

Can't connect to WiFi connects but says saved


You need to press the "forget" button the next time you try to connect, and then let the tablet find the router again.

You apparently have tried and not entered the proper password, and now when you try to connect it is still going to wrong password.

Once you press "forget" it will reset and you can enter the password again.

Good luck with that.

Enter the settings page on the modem and change the Wi-Fi password to something you won't forget, use a daft sentence like 'my cat wears wellingtons' so you will remember it.

Put in wrong password for wifi and then accidentally hit forget and now it wont let me type in a password at all


You need to select the wi-fi website again, and enter the password again. It will then store the password.

If you forget the site, it forgets the password connection to the site and you have to start again.

Wifi setup password


Confirm you do not have caps lock on, or are on a laptop with numlock on first. Assuming those basic settings are off, next you want to try and add the password in cleartext. In the wireless list, right click on your wifi network and select properties. Underneath the network security key should be a check box that says show characters. Click that and your password should be readable. Confirm it's correct or retype if not and try again.
If that does not work you may need to log into the router itself and reset the wifi password.

Accidentalypressed forget button adnhave no access to wifi


Settings/Wifi - Assure the Wifi lists that it is turned on - if it is showing it is in the off position, flick toggle from left to right - once on, look for your network and you will have to re-enter password - click "Join" there you are
If for some reason you do not see your network, check your wifi modem - try resetting it... anymore questions you can email me directly JGunndebtservices@gmail.com
