    Welcome to the forum.

    If you don't remember the password for your router, you will probably have to reset it and set it up again. You should find those instruction in your router manual, or on the manufacturer's site. The password for the network, and the password for getting into the router may be different. If you can find the second one you should be able to use your manual to find and change (if necessary) the network password.

    I'm afraid that iPad knowledge doesn't stretch very far when it comes to how-tos on the hundreds of routers out there, when they all do things just a bit differently.

    Good luck.

    Check on your router, if it hasn't been altered then there is often a label somewhere on it with the password on it.

    Should have thought of that. :eek: Also, often both the default user and password are Admin and/or Administrator. If so you really should change them.

    Sounds like a company I used to work for, they had 1000's of PC's and laptops, the IT dept set the password for each and every one of them to........"password"!

    It would be funnier if it were less common. :)

    IT's get lazy too, which is why these days there is usually a security IT guy who's job it is to make the rest of the IT department miserable. :D

    Even better, as they didn't want us fiddling with the guts of the system or loading our own software on, they had their own administrator accounts......user name was admin, password was password!

    Grooaaann. Don't tell me this stuff. I was in charge of an IT department once. This is like some kind of demented horror story. It's like recasting Gray's Anatomy's interns as Typhoid Mary wannabes.
