Hi
My partner has just bought an iphone. we have downloaded itunes like it asks you to do and he has got the phone working.
Now trying to connect wifi. We have wifi in the house as we have a playstation so i know thats OK.
It recognises our name so is picking the network up but when i press the network it tells me unable to join....
anybody got any ideas please.

press settings says wifi not connected so i press on wifi it then shows wifi on
choose a network...
our name is there so i press on that
asks for password which we put in...if my partner has put the correct one in...
it then says unable to joint the network...our name

Pretty sure he has the right password.

my partner put a password in...but now doesnt know what that was for...may have been for itunes....and i dont know as i cant read his mind....

i cant ever remember using a password for the wifi...can you give me an idea when i would have used it before if its not the one hes used already and it may jog my mind.
i have asked the kids what password they put in for the playstation but they dont the playstation is on auto something or other.

Bring back the 70's when you didnt need passwords for anything.

well most wifi passwords are casesensitive so it will be something like this W854ftHgas

The password may be written underneath your router /modem if it needs a password.

It'll be whatever you chose when setting the wireless router up - could be anything up to 64 characters long!
