Tip & How-To about Computers & Internet
Hi. Thanks for looking!
Due to the fact that many questions are being asked about routers and wireless networks I decided to put little tutorial together .
· How to change my routers password (forgotten password)
Since you forgotten your password and can not connect to wireless network you will need an Ethernet network cable in order to connect to router.
Before doing anything else switch your computer on and make sure that your router is on also.
Connect Ethernet cable to your routers free port at the back and the other end to your PC/Laptop network port.
Once you get confirmation that you are connected to the network (you should notice this in the task bar right lower corner of the screen)
Open your internet browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the address box and press enter. If this don'ttake you to the site asking for username and password please do the following.Click Start and choose run (below search) type "cmd" in the box and press enter.This should start a command prompt where you need to type in "ipconfig" and press enter. This should show you information's about your network. Default gateway address will be an address that you need to type in your browser box.
Once you get to the login page, provide your username and password. You should be able to find this in your manual for router but if you can't you can find it hear--->click hear.
Please note that since there's so many router vendors instructions in step 4 may vary, but these are basic.-
When you logged in to your router settings page please find wireless tab and choose security. Get to the password box and change password to whatever you like.
Remember to save changes before quitting. Now unplug your cable and try to connect to your network wireless, using your new password.
Bravo! You just completed password change.
