Google Nexus connection

Hi
My Google Nexus has worked wirelessly at home fine up until now. For some reason it won't link to the router - message being "secured with WPA/WPA2" and asking for password which I don't think I have. The tablet works absolutely fine with other wireless networks but not just at home. Laptop etc is working fine on same network.
Any help gratefully received.

Re: Google Nexus connection

Which router are you using?
It's not secure to run a wireless network without some form of protection.

If it's the PN supplied Technicolor router the default wifi password is printed on the label on the bottom of the router, or on the plastic card that comes in the box.

WPS is considered insecure. I disable it.

My wife's Nexus works OK on our network. She just enters the network password as normal which uses WPA2 encryption. I always change the supplied password to something I can remember, same with the SSID.
