Re: how does one type in the router password?

i'll assume you are refering to Wifi Router.


Swipe from the top of the playbook screen downwards or click the wheel icon at the top right-hand corner of the screen to display the option page.


Select "Wifi" from the list on the left and the playbook will display all available connections. Select the connection name you want to connect to and you will be presented with a new page where you'll type in the password.


You can click the 'Advanced'  button if you want to provide extra details like security type (WPA, WEP etc), proxy details, band etc.


Your playbook will save this information and automatically connect to this network if the password is correct. You wont need to supply this information when you restart the playbook within connection range.
