Tablet problem

I have just bought an ACER Tablet and find that I have to enter a password to get online with it. The problem is that I don't remember what it is or how to find out - please help! My router is a BTHomeHub 2

Have you looked for a sticker on the back of/bottom of your Homehub? With many routers, that's where you'll find the WAP/WEP key, which I'd imagine is what you need.

OK Ian, I had read the number on the sticker - unfortunately I read one character as a Capital whereas it was actually Lower Case. My sight is not too good but now it appears my memory has joined it 8-(. Thanks to your reply I had another look and then realised my error. Needless to say I now have WiFi on the tablet.

Many thanks.
