Re: password

Maybe it's the wrong password.

The best thing to try: change the password in the router and see if the new password works. Start with a simple one.

Re: changing wireless password

That's something you read in the manual of the router.

For most ones it means:
a. Make a wired connection.
b. Type the gateway ip-address (obtained from ipconfig) in the address bar of your browser
c. Login with the username and password (the user manual will both the username and the default password - but maybe you changed it?)
d. Find the screen where can change the encryption type and password and do it.

Ten years ago (but probably your router isn't so old) you set up a telnet connection via the serial port.

Lots of reasons.

You see that a lot on WEP (protected) routers. I won't duplicate the content of what we have in the CNET Networking forum but if I am to discuss this with you, you must forget a lot of what you know about WiFi.

The TVs are different. For example using the @ symbol in the router password may cause this along with odd things like any alphanumeric and more.

We've covered most of this in the CNET Networking Forum but if you want to save time, just tell a lot more.
