Hi Vinod,

I have the Apple ID, but now need the password ***** WiFi to enable me

to access the internet, not knowing the original owners password.

I am still confused. Did you mean the ipad is asking the password ***** the original owner ID?
Or if it is only the WiFi password ***** is your computer connected to the same WiFi? If so, is it a Windows XP/Vista/7 or a Mac?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

I am working on a Windows XP computer. I know my Apple ID and wish to connect my ipad to the internet,using the same WiFi but am unable to do so as do not have the correct password *****

presumably the previous owner used a password ***** I do not know

Expert:  Vinod Menon replied 2 years ago.
Let's see what exactly the ipad is asking for. What is the make and model of your wifi router? Is it linksys/netgear/belkin etc.
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

The wifi router has a Wireless Network Name - Talktalk model 3B80C8

with a Wireless Password KF973UF8

Expert:  Vinod Menon replied 2 years ago.
I am sorry, Michael. I have not yet heard of the Talktalk router. So I think this issue can be better handled by a Networking expert (currently you are in the Mac category). Let me transfer to the Networking category and somebody from there might be able to get your WiFi password. Once an expert responds, you will get an email notification.

Thank you, ***** ***** you have not been able to sort this out for me - I did not realise you were Mac experts

Hi. My name is***** you for your question and the opportunity to assist. Please try this on your iPad. From the home screen tap Settings>Reset>Reset Network Settings. When the iPad restarts go into Settings, making sure Wi-Fi is ON. Select your TalkTalk wireless network and enter the password ***** provided by TalkTalk (KF973UF8)

case sensitive

When connected you should see a checkmark next to the network name.

Than open Safari from the home screen and see if you can reach websites.

Should that password ***** work for whatever reason here is a way to verify the Wi-Fi password ***** using your wirelessly connected XP machine:

From a Windows computer connected to your
wireless network
Please download and RUN this utility from Hewlett-Packard

Run the program, including update if prompted,
and allow it to finish searching for products.
When it finishes click Network from the
menu at the top of the screen.
and select Show Advanced Info
Click Show Wireless Info
Under Wireless Settings at the bottom of the
page, under Network Key you will see your
wireless password *****

My apologies. I just realized that because you're in the UK the link I sent may not work.

Hopefully, this one will
