    SOLVED: Nook color security password issue

      Hi,

       

      For those of you who have had a problem accessing your home wireless (the nook color asks for network password) try entering your network's security key. 

       

      This resolved the issue for my mother's NC (solved by my wonderful husband), which no one else had been able to resolve. 

       

      Hope this helps others!

          Yep, there are different passwords going on...

           

          There's your B&N account password.

          And then there's your Wireless Adaptor's WiFi security password (if you have security enabled).

          Two different animals.

           

          Glad to hear you got it resolved!

              Actually, there could be 3 passwords:

               

              in addition to:

              B&N Account password

              Wireless Adaptor's WiFi Network/SSID security password

               

              your wireless adaptor/router could also have an "admin" password (which is usually, and should be, different than WiFi Network/SSID passwords).  The "admin" password is used to make changes to the WiFi Network/SSID settings (SSID name, Wifi Network/SSID security password, WEP vs WPA/WPA2, etc.)

              Who set up your "WIFE" (WIFI) initially and did they write down the password for future set up with other wireless devices?

               

              Additionally if you have the original password that the router came with currently in use, the router web site should give you their default password.

               

              First off I would look for the password written down in notes from when the router was set up....and...there will be someone along much more knowledgable about retrieving this information than me.  Those are the only two suggestions that I have currently.

                I was having trouble entering my wifi password  (aka passphrase, which is set at a high level of security) for my Color Nook because the wifi password was too long to fit in the field provided by the Nook. When I went to B&N, I got my Nook software updated to version 1.3.0. After that, the field was long enough to enter my long password. Now I can connect to my secure home wifi.
