Lost network password which I need to sign on an ipod touch using a netgear dg834gt

Hi ,
i know my network name , but have forgotten the netword password. I use a netgear dg834gt router and my two computers work fine. I have just bout an ipod touch which can connect via wi fi. It shows my network , but I cannot sign on as i have forgotten my password for the network. Netgear suggested using the WEP Key 1 , but that didn't work and now they said i should contact apple which is ludicrous.
On the wireless settings page it says 128 bit encrypted and nothing in the passphrase box.
What should I do?

    Thanks for that , but if I turn off encryption , I turn off my security and I'd rather not.Key 1 does not work...I need the actual password.

  • cydara Nov 20, 2007

    If I turn of encryption , I turn off security and I'd rather not...i will just use wi fi on the touch if I go out and theres a hotspot...too much hassle at home and no one has a clear answer of what to do other than compromise my entire network...its not worth it...apparently the UK has this problem and its much less obvious in the US.

Key 1 should work in most cases. If you have additional keys listed, try them also.
If none work, turn off encryption and connect your new device, then create a new password.
The manual page is here:

    After you turn it off, you're going to reset it.
    This is a very simple procedure that's explained in the manual.
    Make sure your Touch can connect without encryption, enter a new key (Something easy, like b1b1b1b1b1), then reconnect with the new key.
    You can then write down the new key, or just print the page for future reference.

I have forgotten my password and can't sign in to my ipod touch acct.

Select forgotten password/details and hopefully if you can answer your own security question you will be able to reset your password or have the old password sent to an alternative email address.

Do i need first to install cd DG834GT manual before i proceed to some set up?

well it would depend, if its a new netgear router, i would suggest to configure it manually, its much easier. especially the wireless connection. just type username is ADMIN and password is PASSWORD all this in lower case. make sure of it. then check on the left side of the site and click on wireless settings. look for ssid or network name, then create your  own personal network name. next is go to SECURITY OPTIONS. make sure you click on WPA-PSK(TKIP) then you would see the passphrase is blank. type in you network password and make sure its 8 characters or more. and click on apply. make sure to write down your network name and password on a piece of paper for future references....and try to test your wireless connection..........

What the password for netgear for ipod touches

the password for a wireless network is set by the owner of the network. it is the same password you would use when logging onto that network from a computer. if you do not have the password ask the owner of the network what the password is. if you are the owner of the wireless network and you have forgotten your password, that is another thing entirely and you should ask how to recover your wifi password.

How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password Symptoms:
  • You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
  • You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
  • You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network

Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.

If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.

To view or reset a wireless network password:

  1. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to or Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.
  3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.
    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router:

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

Unable to connect to wifi network on ipod 2g touch

You must have your wireless profile's name and passkey.  Try resetting your router, then make sure you create a new profile for your desktop and take note of the details (ie name, WEP/WPA Key)  Should work just fine if you follow the steps.

How to Activate I-Touch?

You need to know the name of the wireless network you have set up on the router, along with the WAP or WEP password used to secure it.
