Hi folks,

I hope you can help me. I have just got a Kindle (ebook reader) from Amazon and am trying to set up the wireless network. It is asking for my Wireless Network name and a password. I think I have the Wireless Network name so have entered that - but have no idea what the password would be - is there anything I can enter into my computer to give me the password I would have set up?

The password may well be printed ON the Router.

If you can enter the router's configuration page you may well be able to find it.

Had the same problem with my Kindle. I had forgotten the password so went to configuration page on router and reset the password. Had to reset password on everything connected to network though.
Have now written it down for future reference.

Have now found the info - thanks folks - problem now is trying to get the thing to connect - it keeps finding the network, but showing absolutely no signal for it so "unable to connect". Grrr.
