When following the stops to connect to your WiFi you will be asked for the "password". If you are using Cox internet you will want to put in your "key" for the wireless router and not the password and then you will connect to the internet.
The password for wifi usually is the key for the wireless router. I don't think this is a special case here specific to the phone.
