|The Router Password should be set by the user to stop the router settings being tampered with. The Wifi connection settings are something quite different and go like this:|
Firstly you search for your network name then use a pass phrase (or wireless key) in order to access your network. Once set up you don't normally have to input this phrase (or key) each time you go online, even though your connection is encrypted. As often as not these days this information is provided on a sticker somewhere on the router. A visitor with, for example, an iPad would have to use this phrase before their first access to your network.
Folk these days tend to use the word "password" instead of "pass phrase" (or wireless key) so this causes confusion with the "router settings access password".
Mostly "encryption" is now included as part of the setting up, so you don't have to get involved with manually setting up the level of encryption required (WPA and all that). The wizard usually does it all for you.
Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
