    HI, Can anyone give any advice on how I can get my IPT to connect through WIFI. I have loaded the MAC address into my router & the IPT recognises my WIFI connection, however, it won't recognise the Router password when I enter it. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks

    Have you tried entering the ASCII code version of the password usually something like 8c3d75c9gf77?

    Hi Thomas,

    Thanks for your reply. I haven't tried that, do you know where I'd get the ASCII code from. I can't see it on the router settings.

    Thanks Again.

    What you need to do is to log into your wireless router's control page.

    You can probably find the IP address of it eg http://192.168.0.1 in your manual or if you google your router online. This should be able to let you view the various codes for your wireless security.

    The other thing it could be is that your router has 'MAC filtering/Allowed Devices' enabled which means if only allows known and registered devices to access the network. There may be a way on there (or a guide in the manual) to add new devices to the list.
