Installing a PDA by bluetooth to desktop, the last question in setup asks for "passkey"
I do not ever remember setting up such a number in Vista Home Premium 64 bit. How can I find this info.

Connect a computer to the router with an ethernet cable.

See the literature which came with your router for how to access the user setup screens in the router. Once in go to wireless security and review or renew the wireless security type and password. WPA PSK TKIP is the most common security type in use. Make a note of the SSID or change it to one of your invention.

Go to wireless mode and ensure that it's set to a protocol matching your computer and PDA wireless adapter (mixed mode is a safe bet).

Disconnect ethernet cable.

Go to the computer (and PDA) wireless networking setup screen and see if you can detect the router's SSID (wireless call sign). Select that network.



Apply the wireless security type and password to the computer and PDA wireless networking setup screen.
