Why does my WiFi provider keep not accepting my password

April 24, 2017 at 21:28:56
Specs: Macintosh
The Network Provider I have chosen from the list of 4 keeps telling me my password is incorrect,
I am "a senior" not a"Tech Genius"
Those four providers listed all have padlock signs beside them.

Would be very pleased if somebody could help.

Thank you

Is this a wifi access point to which you wish to connect one to which you have connected before?

Is it a connection to your own wifi router?

All "passwords" - actually better called an access or pass keys - are case sensitive. Also ensure you are not konphusing zero with the letter O.

You've posted in the Android forum but listed your Operating System as Macintosh. What exactly are you attempting to connect to the internet with - phone, tablet, laptop, or desktop? And how is it that you're able to get online & post your question?

Of the 4 choices on the network list, only one of them is yours. You should know the name of your own Wifi network & should know what the password is. There's no way anyone here can tell you what you are supposed to use.

Pass phrases (wifi passwords) are either generated by the user or (more recently) provided when you receive a router from your internet service provider (ISP).

Check underneath the router to see if there is a pass phrase (wifi password) written on it. If so try that.

If you have not set yourself up with a service provider and are simply trying to access networks that show up then you will see padlocks because they are secure and can only be accessed by their owners.

Tell us more and don't be coy about age - some helpers on here are seniors too.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
