I am trying to connect my Nook to my wireless network. When I originally set the network up, I wrote down EVERYTHING: router password, network name, network security key, security type, IP address, network name & network passphrase.

The original set up was with a now unused laptop; I have since successfully connected a desktop wirelessly to the network but the Nook keeps telling me I'm entering the wrong wireless password.

I can access the router page through the IP address using the info I said I have above and have not been able to figure out the password. From what I can tell, there's no way to recover my encrypted password and I need to do a factory reset to my router and set it up from scratch again. (If I'm wrong on that, PLEASE someone let me know!)

I guess my question is ultimately this: if I have to do a master reset to my router, do I have to use a cable to connect it to my PC when I'm setting it back up? The computer is on a different floor than the router and I don't think there's a cable long enough (that I can afford!) to connect them.

Sorry, it's Windows Vista 64 bit and a Linksys wireless router WRT54G2.

Thank you in advance for your help!

if you loginto the router
and goto the wireless section
then to the security part of the wireless section
can you see the password / key there ?

I see the "WPA shared key"; tried that before I posted & it doesn't work. The Nook recognizes the network & I don't have the MAC filter turned on.

I figure I probably have to reset but don't want to do that until I know if I have to be physically connected to the router in order to set it up again...

Apparently I was typing it incorrectly (although I verified it several times).
I finally just changed the password & I'm good to go.
Thank you for your help!!!
