Password Dilema

  Bagsey 16:58 08 Nov 2011

I am using a BT Home hub to connect to my BT broadband. It was set up for me by a friend and I dont know the password for it. This has never bothered me until today when I bought a new Kindle 4 for my wife and it is asking for the password for the hub so that I can set the kindle wifi connection. Can anyone tell me how to find the password that was used. There must be a way to do this but it is beyond my knowledge. Help someone please!!

The passkey is on a sticker on the back of the hub.

There are two to choose from on the sticker. Just try them and see. Be careful to use the correct lowercase/upper case. if neither work then the Hub can be reset to default settings

You could download SIW and see if it tells you or not.

I know with my daughters router you could reset it back to factory settings then install another password.Not sure if you can do it with yours or not.

Thanks to you all for the help. Problem resolved now. I had never noticed the sticker on the reverse of the Home Hub befor. Anyway my wifes new Kundle is now working fine.
