What is the password for the Ipod the network called 2wire 048

Unless you changed the password, it should be the same wireless key used for any portable system, on 2 wire products, it is generally on a label on the router as 2Wires are generally encrypted by default

I cant get my computers linked up with the 2wire wireless router. the computer recognize the router but the passwords are not accepted

The passwords your computer requires is the router's encryption key ie. the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 key.
This encryption key can be retrieved or changed in the wireless settings of your router.

Hey pkkern,

Your default 10 digit security is located on the bottom of your router.

If you want to change it or for some reason your default key is no longer working we will have to get into the routers configuration homepage.

To access this open up your Internet browser and write in this address, (which is your routers address) 192.168.1.254.

Click the Home Networking tab at the top of the 2Wire Home page.

Click EDIT SETTINGS located on the right panel (Status at a Glance) under the Wireless Settings heading.

My 2wire router will not connect to my nintendo ds wifi system.

The DSi only works with WEP encryption. The 2Wire and most other newer routers use WPA encryption.

Simply logon to your router with a web browser. The default IP for it is 10.1.1.138 but it might be different, just check the manual or internet for the IP. Go to "Home Network" then "Advanced Settings" and change the security from WPA to WEP and save.

Thats it!

Hope that helps.
