Question about Computers & Internet
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?
I cant remember my password to my i touch and i cant access it now can someone help?.....

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
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:
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!
