Call the internet provider tech support phone number and get assistance in step by step configuring your network.

You will have to open Internet Explore , type in your router IP number (something like 192.168.0.1) and set up the network again.

A phone operator will follow you in doing this.

If you want to do it yourself you find instructions on haw to access router on Internet Explorer, and how to configure your network on router user manual.

Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

Wireless Internet router (home) Security


Unsecured means that you have not set any passwords or keys to lock your wireless connection. This is not a good practice. And yes, if the connection is unsecured, then others will be able to use it without any problems.

Do this if you are comfortable:

1) Go to Internet Explorer
2) Type http://192.168.1.1 (If that does not work, then try http://192.168.1.254)
3) Type the Username and password (both "admin")
4) Look for a Wireless tab
5) Look for Security and then look for WEP encryption.
6) Enable 64-Bit WEP encryption and type a key there. Save the settings.
7) Now when you try to connect to your connection, it will ask you for a key, put the same key as you had put in the router.

Please keep in mind to wire your laptop before doing these steps. Otherwise, you may be disconnected.

I have just got a Belkin N1 vision wireless modem router. I have set it up and have it working ok on a Unsecure wireless network. But as soon as I try to secure the network. I get the following message...


Hi,

Right-click on the network icon in the bottom right hand corner of your screen, Press Connect to a Network. You should see your wireless network in the list. Before you secured it, you could automatically connect to it because it was unsecured. Now you will have to double click on it and enter the username and password you secured your router with.
Once you have done that, there should be a box for you to tick that says 'Automatically connect to this network'. Tick that.
Done.

Hope this helps

Getting a message need Network Security key or passphrase to get onto my Linksys network


That is the key which was set in the router's wireless.
Go to 192.168.1.1 in your browser, Internet Explorer, and a login window should show up.
In the password box type in admin (that is the default password for the router, if it has been changed, you would have to put that password in)

Once you log into the router's setup page, go to the wireless tab, then to security. There you will see the security key. On this page you can change it if you wish. But remember to write it down and keep it in a safe place for future reference.
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

My neighbour has changed my password on my router


Most routers have a hardware reset switch somewhere on the device. You should be able to find this by looking at your user manual, or going online to lookup the location from the manufacturers website.
Once you reset the device to the factory settings you should be able to use the default password to log in and set a more secure password and secure your wireless if you haven't already done so.

We just got wireless internet this past year at our house and when my dad set it up he forgot to write down the password which lets you onto the internet. So now we are able to log on through the computer...


to set the wireless settings you need to use a computer that is connected to your router or the computer that is working on your router wirelessly.

access the setup page of your router using IE on the address bar type the ip of your router, by default it is 192.168.1.1, username=admin and password=password, once your on the setuppage go to wireless settings option on the left pane. you will be able to see the wireless security there.


the reason why you dont know the wireless security for the old computers its because once you typed the security key in the computer will remembers it and save it on the system.

I don't remember my network security key for my secure network


you need to reset your network settings.
if you have an ethernet cable, use that and type 192.168.0.1 on the adress bar. copy all of your network settings and write them down.

on the back, there's a hole that says "reset" and sometimes its colored.  hold a small pin or paperclip for at least 15 seconds and then disconnect it. connect it and hold it or another 30 sec.   it should have reseted. the password would be the security key under the device. or it will not have a password (for some network routers)
now type 192.168.0.1 and put all of the settings that you wrote down. you can change the password now.

Odds are someone saw the network, saw it was unsecured, and changed admin and password on you. What you'll need to do is reset the router. On the back, should be a button you press with a pen tip. Press that and hold it for approx. 15 seconds. Power-cycle the router, and you should be able to access it again.

I need to set up a security password for my router at the moment i have a unsecured network?


Open an internet window type in your router's ip address and hit go, this will take you into your router's configuration. In there you should see a wireless section in which will be security, you can secure your network there (use WPA or WPA2 it's the most secure). When you have set this you will need to enter your password to all the wireless devices connected to your network.
If you google your routers make and setting up security, you should find a step by step guide.
Hope this helps
