I'm trying to connect my nook to wifi at home.  It asks for the password and when I type it in it says it's not correct?

Are you sure you're using the right wireless password?  Are you sure you're finding the proper wireless network?  If I do a scan on my laptop, I get 3 other wireless networks belonging to neighbors, etc.

 

If you're not sure, reset your wireless password to make sure its what you think it is and try again.  Just remember if you change it, any other wireless clients will have to be updated with the new password or they will lose access to the wireless router.

 

If you need more help, you'll have to explain your network setup in specific detail, like router, wireless config, other wireless clients in use, etc.

Generically, you need to:

1.  Use a Computer to browse into your router

2.  Goto the Wireless settings and make note of the SSID, Encryption Type and passphrase for your router

3.  Goto your Nook and scan for the SSID  of your Router and connect to it

4.  Enter the Encryption type and Passphrase into your Nook

 

If you don't remember the UID and assword to browse into your Router you will need to give us the Make amd model of your router.
