    When I try to connect to the Internet, I get a request to enter a password (which I have forgotten). How can I recover it? It strikes me as unusual that the password is no longer effective. Anyone have a similar problem?

    Comments/help are appreciated.

    Good to hear from you. You’ll find a whole bunch of iPad enthusiasts in this Forum who are only too willing to help other iPad owners and to hear of their experiences. Don’t be afraid to post any questions you may have or use the ‘Search’ button near the top of the Forum web page. I usually find I discover one new interesting and useful piece of information about my iPad every day - and often not even what I was looking for!!

    I saw your password question. Are you saying that you are being asked for a password, which you have forgotten, but are still able to get Internet access on your iPad? The iPad will remember user account names and passwords and enter them automatically, just like your PC will. But are you actually talking about Internet access or access to specific web sites via the Safari browser?

    Hope to hear from you soon with your thoughts about the iPad.

    Have fun and enjoy your iPad


    If you don’t already have it you can download a copy of the iPad manual for free.

    Apple - Support - Manuals

    It’s free too.

    Outside my iPad, or was it inside?

    If you have a windows machine connected to the same wireless network, you could run WirelessKeyView

    But if the iPad happens to be the only device connected to the wifi network, you may have to access your wireless router and recreate the wifi network.

    How do I recover my forgotten iPF password. Silly me, I jotted it down on a scrap of paper which I threw away. :( I didn't add it to my secure document with all of my passwords on it!
