WiFi on S2 Question
I think I know the answer to this, but I thought I would ask anyway. I dont have my preshared key for my router. So unless I reset it to factory I'm S.O.L. right. I guess I'm asking if anyone knows a way to get that key without the router password? 2 computers connected to the router currently.

Nope. you'll have to set it back to the factory default.
That is what I thought, I will do that this weekend. Booo:aargh4:

you don't need to set it to factory settings, simply type http://192.168.1.1/ into the address bar of your browser on your computer (The username is either blank or "admin" and the default password is "admin".) and then you can access your pass keys.
note: this works for linksys routers but if you have another brand you should check their websites for how to access your router's control features.
True, if you have a Netgear router, try 188.8.131.52. I think the default user name and password are the same as described above.

I've disconnected from the 3G network & accessed the internet, so I assumed that my wi-fi connection was working. I tried connecting to Youtube via wi-fi, but it won't connect. I can only connect to Youtube via my 3G connection. I also tried sending an e-mail from he wi-fi connection, but it only saves the message to draft. I'm on a B2B Unlimited Plan & ($149.00 a month), so I don't need to upgrade. I'm stumped.
If anyone can help me I would really appreciate it.
Well I changed the default password and forgot it. I just don't access it to often. But I got the key anyway so I'm good. Thanks all.
