I have had to turn on/off my router twice in the last week because it loses the WiFi password. Upon power reset, the WiFi password is recognizes.Has anyone had any luck in resolving? Is this a hardware issue?

That's a rather old router. You might want to get a new one. It's unusual for a router to loose settings. There could be an incompatibility between your router and a new device. How do you know it's the router forgetting and not the device? What is the device in question?
You can get a Rev I Actiontec (802.11n) here:
You might get a Rev I with the free WPA2 upgrade, but you could get an older model.
If you want the latest FiOS router, the Quantum router is currently on sale for $99.99. This is an 802.11ac WiFi device. You can read about it here:
my ipad2 has been on this network with out any issues for 2 years. Once i reboot my router, my ipad re-connects. If i try to type in the password on my ipad, I get an error message on the WiFi password.
Hopefully, i can get a new router...
