It would help a great deal if you told us (for all the postings) what phone you have and for this particular query the make and model of router.

Generally speaking the wifi on your router assuming it is secured will have a password which you must apply to any device that you want to connect to the wifi. You should not be generating a pin number on the phone.

yeah try bremner details first. In my phone case, there's no need to use pin number in order to use wifi, unless if the owner of the wifi secure it with password. I do use wifi in my phone in school of my son, then I can easy connect with them with no problem.
