Connecting Nook Simple Reader to home network

Hi--

 

I've searched the threads, but still seem to be unable to correct this issue.  I have one nook simple reader that originally connected fine to a home wireless network with Netgear N600 router.  I am trying to connect a second nook, which will not connect (it says incorrect password, even though I know it is the right password), and the first one will not connect now.

 

Anyone have any experience connecting to this type of router?

 

Thank you.

If the Nook says the password is not correct, it usually is really not correct.

As your other Nook also not connects now, this sounds like a router problem.

Try turning you router off/on to reboot it. If that does not help check the Wifi security settings of your router.

Did you change the SSID (name) of your router to something else than the default? If not, make sure you are connecting to the correct router.

Make sure you are enterring your security passphrase, not the login password you use to get to the router configuration screens.

Re: Connecting Nook Simple Reader to home network

Thanks...I am using the correct passphrase or password (not the router login) to connect (I have three other devices - laptop, iphone, and ipad that connect fine to the network).  I know I am trying to connect to the correct router.

 

Any other ideas?

Try setting the router to b/g mode only.
