I am trying to connect the wifi on my iPad 2 to my home network, using a netgear DG834G router.


I don't know what the password is that it keeps asking for.I have tried the router's pin and the security passphrase and every other password I can think of, but all are rejected.


I have a 3G model but it does not have a SIM card yet it that is relevant.

iPad 2, iOS 4.3.2

    Have you checked uunderneath your Router? Look for something like WPA/PSK. If there's nothing there then call your ISP for the password. They have to have it

    Chris is right, and no, the Sim card is not relevant for wifi.

    If you are still having the problem - on some routers - when you are doing your first set up for the i pad - it asks for a password, but what it really wants is the security key.  do it once, then it goes on to a regular set up, including password.  Sort of like a mis labeled field.  Not sure it netgear is one of those, but if you are still having the issue, try that.

    Try this:


    Go into your router by typing "" into the address bar of your browser. This should give you the router password screen (This is just to get access to the router settings). If you have not changed them, the user name default is "admin" and the password default is "password". That should get you into the router settings. Select "Wireless settings" from the left of the screen. You should now be able to find (and change if you want) at the bottom of the page the network password which is what the iPad is asking for.
