    I finally got Wifi installed in my house today and every device works with my Wifi but my Apple products will not connect to it. :( I do get this weird error too, It will connect but I go into my browser and it brings up this Cisco (Manufacturer of the router) page and asks me for the password, I enter my password precisely and it says "Password is invalid." What is wrong?

    Router model would help get a quicker answer.

    Well that's your problem, you're using an apple product.

    Honestly though, Did you check cap locks? That might help although you probably already tried that.
    Other than that, you might might want to try manually inputing your router. I don't know if it will help but it's worth a shot.

    To be honest, Apple products are the easiest thing ever to connect to WiFi. Windows sucks in that regard. It's probably just the encryption type or something... does it give you an option? WEP, WPA and so on?

    Ok, fanboy. Why's this guy having problems? Why did my iPhone reset routers and hang all other machines connected to it? Why does my Dad's iMac forget the router password?

    To OP: Try turning off dual-band. Stick to 2.4ghz.

    My family's macs's wifi settings and stuff get reset a lot due to our new apple router (but the connection rocks on my computer). Apple isn't without faults, I guess.

    Fanboy? Pur-lease. I've been exclusively using Windows PCs my entire life up until 2010 when I got my first MacBook. They're a total pain in the ass when it comes to routers, always have been.

    If you've got shitty routers, take it up with the manufacturer. For some reason the US doesn't seem to have a single good brand/model that actually works properly, we've got a bunch of great ones over here.

    Calm down it was a joke...

    I'm sorry but I have nothing further to contribute to this thread.

    I wasn't riled up anyway, but my response was due to the fact the joke got old the first time you said it.
