    Replaced router. In settings I entered the incorrect information under security type. How do I go back in and change that. I think I entered WPK which is wrong. Thanks in advance for any and all help

    Hello and welcome to the forum - :) You really need to provide more information for a proper response: 1) What router brand/model do you now have?; 2) Does the router setup use a web browser (like my old Linksys ones) or a utility (now like my Apple AirPort Extreme); and 3) Do you want to use WPA2 for Wi-Fi security (which I do)?

    But just some general comments - in a web browser configuration program, you should be able to make the changes desired (of course if you remember your passcode?) - if you want to 'start over', then the router should have a 'reset' button that takes you back to factory settings, the login information should be in your documentation. Let me stop there - good luck! Dave

    My bad Giradman. I am not talking about my router. I am speaking of my Ipad. I am talking about setting up my ipad as if it was fresh out of the box. I need to change the security setting from WPK(I think) to WPA. This on the Ipad not my router. Thanks

    Yes, quite misleading - thanks for clarification, but you still need to provide a better description of your issue: 1) What new router brand/model do you now own?; 2) What is the Wi-Fi protection setup on the ROUTER (usually this is the less secured WEP or the better choice, WPA2)?; and 3) Do you know the passcode set for your router's security setup?

    If so, you should be able to simply go into 'Settings > Wi-Fi' on your iPad - there you can forget a current wireless network or choose another network, e.g. the SSID (name of your network you want to connect) - if you pick another network, then the security used will be an option; again you will need the passcode - BTW, WPK is not an option AFAIK - let me again stop there to see if this is of any help. Dave :)
