Do try the reset option in onthelimit1's post above. (The rest one; it takes quite a time). The 10 failures route may permanently lock it unless you contact Apple - do you have an Apple store near you? If you call the nearest one and ask for technical support the should put you through to someone who will talk you through the problem.
Well, I can't believe it, I got totally fed up and as a last resort I tried all the passwords I had and lo and behold one written next to WAP worked, I have saved all the problems of contacting Apple and it is now working properly so thank you all for your help, it is much appreciated.
