I found the set up of this wireless lan going fairly well on my bluray player model bd1600 until I got to the on screen set up asking me for a pass word after choosing my access point which is a bsecured wireless connection. I did not know I even had a pass word. Any idea where I find this or any way to bypass?? Thanks, T.Cameron

Secured wireless connection do have a password.

Not sure what your 'wireless access point' is. If it's your router, it can be found (and changed) in the router configuration screen in your browser. If it's managed by someone else, ask him.
It's same password you use in your wirelessly connected laptop, PC or game console.

Network key

At some time or other you or the people who supplied your Wireless Router (AP) will have used a key/password to set up the Network you connect to. How else would it be a "secure" connection?

If you cannot find this information then check with a PC that uses the same connection - it will be using the key you need.

On Windows 7 (other OS may vary), Control Panel>Network and Sharing Centre>Manage Wireless Networks will take you to a list of WiFi networks you have connected to. Right click on the one you use (there may be only one in the list) & select Properties>Security tab. If not already, tick the Show characters option under Network Key.

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?
