[access-uk] Re: Trying to connect my Touch via wi-fi

Hi Ibrahim -

It did make sense to me that I would use the same password for the Touch as for the Kindle, this is why I'm confused. I had some sighted help, and we connected a Kindle ok, and my mobile connects ok [when I need it too, which isn't often] but not this Touch. My router is a Netgeer that i bought separately, and has never caused me any issues. Scratching my head -

Hi Andy.

The password you will need to connect your ITouch to your wireless network is exactly the same as for your PC and Kindle. You need to make sure that it is entered exactly as it has been set, IE with capitals, punctuation marks and so on if you use those as part of your key. Also, depending on your router, you may have a limit on the number of devices you can connect at any one time, since some basic routing equipment, typically the junk boxes some ISP's provide their customers with will only allow a very few connections. You may wish to ask your ISP about this if your still not having any luck, but if the equipment is your own bought separately then the problem will be elsewhere.

All the best, Ibrahim.

Marie - please don't feel asking the obvious is patronising, it isn't too me anyway, sometimes I missed the obvious, and other times I just don't have the knowledge.

This was actually helpful, but hasn't solved my issue yet.

You might be getting me there however, you see, I thought the key or password I needed would be the same one I use to connect my mobile or Kindle to my network [Guess I still don't know the difference between WLAN and WI-FI!]

It seems from what you say, I actually need some code that is written on the router? I've got a note of the 'password' for the router, which is different to the pass key I use to connect my mobile and Kindle to my network

Since your message, I tried with this router password, but still couldn't get connected. Incidentally, this password for the router is one I created when I set up my home network a few years ago, so I must have changed whatever the default one was at the time.

Does this make sense? -

Andy

Not sure how to say this and not sound patronising so, here it is:
The code you must insert is not your personal password, it is your WIFI key the code tied to your router, written on it somewhere, usually in very small print. Sorry if I state the obvious, but, to me at least, a password and a WIFI key code are 2 different things: the password allows you to change the settings on your router, the key code allows other devices to talk to it and hear it.


Good luck!
Marie

Hi Damon and Marie - Yes, airplane mode is off. The Touch can see my WLAN, the name shows up on the screen, and I double tap to select it, and that brings up the screen with an edit field on to enter my password, and this is where I hit a wall, as when I type it in, and have had sighted help to do this too, it says "connecting to..." then comes back and says "unable to connect to..."

I'm able to connect a Kindle to my home network ok, using the same password, but not this Touch. Any further thoughts? -

I just use my wep number from the bottom of the modem. Didn't have to do
anything else.

I assume that in the wireless part of settings, you have wireless turned
to on?

Hi all -

Bit stuck, I find my wi-fi name under settings, and try to enter my
password, but I get an unable to connect message. Is there something
else I need to do, I ask because I Have seen screens asking for IP
address, and Router number, and DSN etc, do I need these fields just to
connect to my wi-fi, or just my password? -
