Hello Jo! Thank you for your question. I am a licensed computer professional with over ten years of experience, and I will be assisting you today.I'm sorry about the issue. Was this laptop working previously with the current modem/router device? Please try the following:1. Please disconnect the power cord from the modem / router for a few minutes, then reconnect.2. Please click on Start, then right-click on Computer, then click on Manage, then click on Device manager, then click on the + (plus) sign in front of Network adapters and right-click on each of the items under it and click on Uninstall and confirm (but don't delete the driver when prompted). Then restart the computer, and it will automatically reinstall.3. Next, please click on Start->All Programs->Accessories, then right-click on Command Prompt and click on Run as administrator. Then type each of the command lines below, one line at a time, and press the Enter key each time:netsh winsock resetipconfig /releaseipconfig /flushdnsnetsh int ip reset netshlog.txtThen restart the computer and see if you can connect / enter the password. If you or your friend does not know the exact wireless password XXXXX security key (it is case-sensitive), please let me know.
