Just installed roku. How do I find password for Home_B698


You will need to login to your wireless router on your computer to get, or set, your network password for "Home_B698". A typical default router IP address is 192.168.0.1, but there can be any number of possibilities depending on router type, and network configuration, and who set it up... Some routers will put their default IP Address, and password on a sticker, located somewhere on the router. If this is the case, type the default IP Address into a browser on your computer, and hit enter, or return. A web page should appear asking for login information... User name, and password. Again this information varies... Typically the default user name is "Admin" or "admin" you can also try leaving this field blank, and just entering the password found on the router. In some cases the password is actually "admin" while leaving the user name blank.
If your successful at loging-in, you need to look at your wireless settings, under one of the sub-tabs you should find a password field indicating your network password. This is what should allow you to login to your network with your Roku device.

how do i change my router name


Hi,
First you have to access the router through web browser (Internet Explorer) by typing the IP address of your router in the address bar, which is usually 192.168.1.1 (also written at the back of the router)
Then, press Enter. A login screen will appear. Leave the User name field blank. The
first time you open the Web-based utility, use the default password admin. (You can set a new password from the Administration tab's Management screen.) Click OK to continue
and lookup for the options to do the following (under Basic Setup): -
1. Change the SSID (Name) of the router
2. Change the default administrative user name and password (unless you've configured otherwise, the default username is admin and the password admin or password.)
The SSID is the network name shared among all points in a wireless network. The SSID must be identical for all devices in the wireless network. It is case-sensitive and must not exceed 32 characters (use any of the characters on the keyboard). Make sure this setting is the same for all points in your wireless network. For added security, you should change the default SSID (linksys) to a unique name. Below is the snapshot of the required option

Hope it helps! Good Luck! Thanks for using Fixya!

I cannot configure the DLink DAP 1150 access point .As said in the manual When I put the user name and start it says that password is not valid.what is the solution?


Reset the device, unplug all network cable before power on (to turn off dhcp function). After that connect the network cablethe ip device should 192.168.0.50 and subnet mask 255.255.255.0. Set your computer ip address to 192.168.0.xxx where xxx is not 50. Access the device via your web browser, the login page should be apear. User : admin, password : leave it blank

401 Authorization Error when accessing a Web-based Utility


Getting the 401 Authorization Required error page means that you tried to access a Setup page and entered an invalid password three (3) times. To reset the password, the device must be reset to factory default settings. Resetting the device: 1. Hold in the Reset button (usually located on the front or back panel) for 30 seconds. 2. Unplug the power cord to the device and wait for 1 minute. 3. Plug the power cord back into the device. 4. This will restore the device's default settings, which includes a default password of admin. 5. You can now try to access the Setup page again. Accessing the Setup Page: Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape). Type the IP Address of the device into the Address Bar and press [Enter]. 1. The User Name and Password Prompt will appear. 2. Leave the User Name Field blank. 3. Type in the Router?s Password, admin, (the default Password). 4. Click OK or press the [Enter] key. If the device was reset to factory settings, the password of admin should be valid and the Setup page should load. If not, repeat steps to reset the device.
