Connecting anther device to existing a/c

I can't connect a new tablet to my existing a/c. The tablet accepts as the password neither the wireless key on my router nor my a/c password. Help!

Hi T1,
Are you trying to connect wirelessly? If so, can you please ensure you're typing in the Wireless Key in capitals?

I've used caps but am unsure if O with a strikethrough is a letter or a numeral
How do I establish if my router is set to allow a second device?

Go to http://192.168.1.254/cgi/b/lan/?be=0&l0=4&l1=-1 then click on the Wireless LAN in the right hand panel then details - if it isn't you select configure
It also shows the Pre shared key for logging in your tablet

That is a numerical zero. The only letters you might see are A-F.
