    Sorry guys, I expect that this is a rather basic question for you youngsters. But I am trying to link my Desire to my wireless network at home.

    It is WEP protected and the Desire keeps on asking me to enter a password.

    Now, it is a year since I set up the network and I can't even remember needing a password, let alone, what it is!

    Does anyone know how I can retrieve the password, maybe from my laptop. I've looked and can't find it. Or is this a daft question?

    Cheers

    Do it on your pc. Use the username & password for your router unless you changed it from default

    user:admin
    pass:admin

    or

    user:admin
    pass: password

    I think I'm stuffed, it looks like I have changed my default as it doesn't work. I can't understand why I would hve done this as I always tend to leave this sort of thing as default.

    By the way it is WPA2 protected, if that helps and it is a 300n router.

    Maybe, I 'll have to set it up the whole network again?

    Make sure you change the username and password to something different. You can always stick a label on the bottom of the router if you're worried you might forget it.
