I have a nook that I was using fairly often about a year ago. Then, duh, I put the thing down and didn't use it for about a year. Now, I would like to use it again, but it requires a password to get on WIFI. I have no idea what the password is or where to get it. Does anyone know if I contact the internet provider for this???? Any help would be appreciated. I am thinking it must be CenturyLink but don't know for sure. Thanks so much.

Is this at home?  Then it'd be whatever password you have installed on your router.  Most public Wifi networks don't have a password but your home one certainly should.

Sometimes the password is just a return.  If you have your main computer on wifi, then going to the wifi settings page should at least tell you how many digits it is.

Usually service providers will reset it rather than give it out.
