Hi,
I am at a friend's trying to get ipad connected to wireless, unfortunately she does not know the password in the modem. It is set up with one but does not shw, only dots.
Can I just change it for a different one?

Might have to reset it then reconfigure the settings

Factory reset or just reset password?

password?, a factory reset will reset everything. And you'll have to go through everything to see whats been configured first. Before you do a factory reset

A password has been set in the router but it won't show, only dots.

Unless the password has been altered, try admin - it may work for you.

Well if its been reset and you've just typed something else in, type the password in on the Ipad

Is there a computer connected to wireless? If so, you can find the password in there

left click on the wifi symbol in the taskbar
right click on the network that the pc is connected to
left click on properties
the click on show characters and you'll have the password.

This works from a computer connected to the wifi connection
