    I can't get my Ipad or Iphone to connect to my wireless.

    Does win 7 have anything to do with it?

    That is a wireless router problem.

    It has nothing to do with Windows 7. You connect your Ipad to the router.

    Without being more specific, you are asking for a lot of guesswork by the
    members of the group.

    What procedures have you tried so far?

    Any "Error" pop up dialogs?

    I don't see any guesswork. He asked a simple question and got the correct
    answer.

    Nope, sounds like you need to go find a newsgroup and/or forum related
    to Apple products, namely the iPad and iPhone. Neither of which are
    Windows issues.

    While a simple question, it was the wrong question to ask to aid in
    solving the actual problem of not connecting to the wi-fi router, imho.

    Reread the post from Heywood. Like Milt and Worn Out Retread, he is
    correct, but he is a touch more informative, in spite of his nym.

    You are trying to connect to the router, and Windows is just plain *not
    involved* in that transaction. Well, it is true that you can get to the
    router through Windows to do what I recommend next.

    You need to do two things: look to see whether your router has MAC address
    filtering turned on, and make sure you *really* have the correct username
    and password - the ones the *router* is expecting. If MAC address filtering
    is on, you need to tell your *router* to accept the iPhone & iPad's MAC
    addresses.

    BTW, MAC address, also called physical address, is an acronym for Machine
    Access Control. It doesn't relate to any specific brand of computers :)

    Also, as an aside: I don't recommend playing the age card...

    Thanks Gene, I don't recommend playing the Stumbling Block! LOL

    Anway, I have the 2401 Att Wireless/Router.

    Att sent me a message saying that my Router/Modem passwords did not match
    and click next for them to reset password.

    After several "next" pages they reset my password and gave me the new one.

    My I phone now connects! Adios Amigos

    I've had this problem on my iPod Touch and my iPhone occasionally. Usually
    this works: on iPhone go into Settings, General, Reset, and reset Network
    Settings. You will then need to log onto your router again with password.
    If this doesn't work then I'd guess you have a problem with the router. You
    may want to search on it as there are some routers that have issues with
    iPhone and etc.
    HTH,
    Dave

    You are trying to trip me up!

    A few decades ago I restarted folk-dancing, and had a tee-shirt made up
    with the obvious pun on my name and a picture of some folkdancers. It
    turned out to be a self-fulfilling prediction.

    I have some leg problems, so now I *do* stumble - but it doesn't stop me
    from dancing...but I just *had* to put it in my sig :)
