you need to get into the router and create a wep or wpa key. then use that key in the ipad. most likely it does have a key already. but it was stored in your other computers the first time it was logged in and so you no longer realize you have one.

 

you can log into the router by putting 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into the address bar of the internet explorer. those are the two most common default addresses for routers

most common default user name and passwords are

admin blank password

admin admin

blank user admin password

 

if none of these work or the ip addresses dont get the router give me the exact make model number of the router and i will find the defaults for you.

 

once you are in the router go to the wireless section

go to security

see what security is on it and the key. add a key if you have to.

By the way, my IPod Touch is connected to the same Wi-Fi and works flawlessly!
Network Technician: RobCat98, Consultant replied 8 years ago

i cant find a default ip for that router and mac's are not really my thing. try hooking into it with an ethernet cable and then using those ip addresses otherwise i am going to opt out and let somebody else pick up the question
