And for those of you looking for support for your NOOK, the NOOK Support Forums will still be here.

We will continue to provide you with books that make you turn pages well past midnight, discover new worlds, and reunite with old friends. And we hope that you’ll continue to tell us how you’re doing, what you’re reading, and what books mean to you.

Can't connect to WiFi

Just got the Nook color - everything all set up and ok.  However, after visiting store yesterday, now I can't connect to our wi-fi here at home.  I put in password and keep getting message "can't connect".  I've tried turning rounter and nook off and on, but no success.  Any ideas?

First, I'm assuming it connected at B&N with no problem.

 

What password are you putting in?  It is not the router admin password that is needed, it is the security encryption key/passphrase that it needs.  That's a fairly common mistake.

 

Do you have MAC address filtering enabled on the router?  If so, you need to disable it, get the Nook to connect and then add the Nook's MAC address to the list.

 

Someone posted they found that the Nook didn't like network names with a space in the name.

 

Just some things to check.
