Just purchased first Apple device iPhone 4S and am trying to get online w/WI FI

 

in SETTINGS, the phone recognizes my router network, WHERE DO I FIND THE PASSWORD it asks for ?

 

On the router I see WEP and MAC information. are either of these passwords ? Have tried both with no success

 

Thanks

    If you never changed your wireless routers password you might find it on a sticker attached to the router with luck or owners manual if you still have it. If not you will have to log in to router with computer and change/set it up... There is also a reset button on the router that should change everything back to default for that router. I'd check the manufacturers web site for more info on connecting to your router.

     

    WEP... I believe is the key you need...

    How did you connect your other devices to your router the first time?

     

    The Password it asks for is the router set password for the Wifi network. Its something you should know. Sometimes the default ones are stickered to the Router itself if the router was provided by your ISP. Though they can be changed.

     

    WEP would be the correct one if the router is set to the "WEP" type fo wireless security. Though if it was changed to WPA or something it may no longer apply.

     

    Did you ever change the password for the router?

     

    If you don't know, or are sure you never chaged it, you will have to call your ISP and see if they can tell you what password the router came set with.
