iPod touch wifi password

by BadDog1270 / April 8, 2010 2:44 PM PDT

I bought a new iPod touch and I want to connect it to my home network. The iPod asks for a password for my network but I don't know what it is or where to find it. I am using a Motorola SBG 900 cable gateway, OS. is Windows 7, any ideas would be great Thanks Brian.

That password

is used by the Wireless portion of your router.

That is where you will find the password.

Good general advice, but it won't help the OP.

To the OP> Who set up your wireless network? The person or company/ISP you used to setup your equipment is the contact to consult with regarding the password. It wont' be accessible to you in plain text anywhere unless you happen to have wrote it down when it was set up.

The fix was using capital letters for the WEP key witch the dumb iPod does not say.

the dumb iPod.

You would think that the dozy wireless router would have mentioned it, given that it's where that, all capital, password is stored. Happy

At least you are back in business.

Help, my PC with Windows 10 won't shut down properly

Since upgrading to Windows 10 my computer won't shut down properly. I use the menu button shutdown and the screen goes blank, but the system does not fully shut down. The only way to get it to shut down is to hold the physical power button down till it shuts down. Any suggestions?
