Wireless password for the Pentax-K1?

Sorry for the newbie question but I just downloaded the Image Sync app for my IOS to connect to my new Pentax K1 camera.
I am all ready to connect but it asks for a password. What password? The manual does not explain where to get the password.
Anyone know? Thanks.

In the WiFi Menue (were you can turn it on and off) there is "Communicationifo" - or sth. like this, I have a German menu

While connected you can change the PW in the app I think, but havnt testet.

Yep, go to Communication Info where the default SSID and password are displayed for you.

Once you've connected, change them to whatever you like from the settings inside ImageSync.

Hi, Thanks. I was looking in the wrong place. I was working the dials to look for the password rather than using the menu system in the display. Once I figure that out, I found wifi and then the password showed up. Thanks for helping me.

This is all OK but I can't work out how to get the camera to connect with the wireless access point (TP Link TL-WA801ND).
The TP link device does not have a password and my android phone connects to it as soon as it is turned on.
How does the camera connect to it?
Image Sync reports "connection failed". It does not ask for ssid or password for the camera, just for the TP link, which does not have one.

There's a bug in the image sync software. It refuses to recognize that it has a connection. Just click on the button to start the app without a connection and all will be well (assuming you are in fact connected to the K-1 wifi.
