Err.. Yes, that's what I meant in item 2 of my #3. It is the same key that you originally used to get your laptop online and for any other devices you might add later. It is the pass key (or pass phrase) for your Network, security level WPA, not your Nook . The router password is only used to access your router settings - not something you need to do very often, if ever. Your Nook might also have a password but that prevents others from using it at all (even offline).

Whatever, glad to hear you fixed it and thanks for popping back to let us know.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Is the router working OK with other things?

Can you see your network name on the Nook?

Sorry, I'm still not totally clear about the situation.

1. Does the laptop that sometimes disconnect?

2. Can you see your network name on the Nook? If so, have you selected your network and put in the pass key? These are the same ones you use on your laptop and I am assuming you know what these are. The security level (WPA or whatever) will also have to be the same.

If you are I doubt about either the network name or pass key then they might be marked on the router, if it is not too old. Otherwise you can go to the webpage for your router and determine them. Access to the router page is by typing something like 192.168.1.1 in your computer browser. If you have any problem with this let us know the make and model number of the router.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks

Sorry ...the laptop stays connected ....the Nook doesn't show anything...
The nook works fine from some locations (wi-fi) just not at home.

Stolen from a website, about connecting Nook to Home Network:

"To connect to an appropriate Wi-Fi network, go to Settings from your Home screen, and check that Airplane mode is "off". Then tap on Wi-Fi, check that Wi-Fi is set to "on", then tap on "Wi-Fi hotspot" and either add a network or select an available network that is listed. Please give a minute for your nook to search and display available Wi-Fi networks."

See how you get on (refer also to my #3). You might have to get the Nook nearer, quite close, to the router.

Also, is this Nook new or was it working previously?
