Hi, thank you for contacting JustAnswer.com. My name is Russell. I will do my best to provide the right answer to your question.

When you select a wireless network to connect to, you need to know the passphrase for the encryption scheme on the router that you are trying to connect to.
If it is a stranger's router, the passphrase being unguessable, you are locked out as an unauthorized user.
If it is a router you know, you may enter the passcode or passphrase.

What device are you trying to connect wirelessly with?
Customer: replied 3 years ago.

I am trying to connect with my Barnes & Noble Nook reader.

How old is the Nook in question?

Does it still / recently connect OK to other networks?

Are you informed of the encryption passphrase for the PQFLF network?

- Can you find out whether the PQFLF uses a high level encryption scheme like WPA-PSK or WPA2- etc. ? if so, it may be too old a device, doubtfully, to connect to an advanced-encryption-scheme network.

The Nook is 2 years old, and never had a problem before I chnaged email address. I need to go to the store and ask them about the encryption passphrase.

OK, asking the store sounds like a good idea.

All encryption passphrases, of course, need to be not only spelled out correctly, and entered correctly, but they also need to have their upper-case and lower-case letters properly spelled out, observed, & entered in the device.

 

Let me know what you find out, please. Thanks.
