iPod and wi-fi

Help!

My wife gave me my Xmas present early . . a 4th Gen 1Pod touch (32gb) (with OS5)!!

We have a Buffalo Airstation wireless router (WHR-HP-GN). The iPod 'sees' the network, shows it's locked' & then asks for a password. I did not assign a password. Using my wife's netbook, I dug around and found a password. I made sure that lower & upper case characters are entered properly. However, the iPod keeps saying that it's not the correct one.

How the heck can I found out what password will grant access?

Any help would greatly appreciated.

I personally use one in place of a netbook (which I do not enjoy using), and to avoid the need for a separate eReader. I find I can read quite comfortably with it, even in sunlight, and since I tend to read mainly academic textbooks, I find the increased screen size over a Kindle allows me to follow more working on a single page, which is a great help to me. I also find a full-screen multitouch interface more usable than a trackpad or nipple pointer controller. I use the tablet for those applications that I cannot comfortably do on a 3.5" smartphone; primarily remote-desktop work and typing anything of length (in addition to the eReading).

They are less bulky than your netbook, which is just as likely to break if dropped, so I don't follow why you bring these points up in relation to tablets.

However, if you are happy with the devices you currently have, the quick answer is that a tablet would most likely be useless to you. There's no reason we should all elect to buy the same set of devices each, and what works for you won't for someone else and vice versa.
