You will be typing it in the wrong place or you don't have windows 7.
We have to try another way then.
Do you have a BT Hub?
If not, what is the make and model of the wifi router you have?

Richard would you believe it - my husband has just manged to reconnect by using the password ***** was on the router.

Thank you so much for your help and patience. Looks like we are feeling right idiots but perhaps we are excused as we are both over 65!!!!

Of course if we had not solved the problem we would have done the above.

Thank you once again you were brilliant - have a good day
