Did you use the setup adviser to add another computer? Linksys has the step by step with photo's for adding more machines to the router, and if your other machine is wireless but has a ethernet connection also you can plug it in and set it up that way.

I forgot my dlink7e5a password what the **** is the password


There are two things to try.
#1: If your using a mac computer go to you Mac HD, Applications, Utilities, then to "Key Chain Access" Then doucle click the internet connection you would like to use, in your case it will most likely say D-Link in the title. Then in the bottom of the window which will open, check the show password box and enter your computers passwrod :)

#2: Call you internet service provider, they can check your router and tell you the password linked to it, or reset it for you.
hope that helps!

I forgot my password to my router how do i find my password


Hello, here is a step by step solution that should solve your problem. Connect your computer to the internet with the help of cable to router port 1. Then open the browser and enter 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. Leave the user name blank and put the password as admin. Go to the wireless, then into wireless security. There is your security WEP key password, make a note of it and then try and connect it. Any further questions please feel free to ask, thanks for using fix ya.

Trying to connect new i pod touch to internet and i have forgot the password for the Belkin wireless router. how can i get round this?


WIRELESS SECURITY ISSUES

Step 1 : Connect Router - Computer ( Wired)

Step 2 : Open Router Setup by typing http://192.168.2.1 on the address bar of internet explorer

Step 3 : On the Left under wireless Click Security

Step 4 : If it asking for a password leave that blank and click submit

Step 5 : On this Page you can find the WPA Key ( If it is a bunch of dots then Uncheck "OBSCURE PSK " )

If the Security Mode is WEP then the Key one will be your password

We just purchased another laptop computer and cannot connect to the internet. I forgot my password. I have netgear as my wireless. How do I find my password.


The WPA encryption key (password) configured in the Netgear router's wireless settings. Go to your router's wireless settings to get this key and use this key to configure the laptop's wireless card.
NOTE - To secure your wireless network from unauthorized access, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-

Motorola wr850g. I forgot my password for my router, I've tried to reset, and when I access router from hardwired computer of course it asks me for user ID and password. Please help!


Open your Internet Explorer browser:

In the URL field, enter
http://192.168.10.1 (the router's default IP address) and press the Enter key.

Enter as follows:

User ID: admin
Password: motorola

Once you have logged in, for security reasons you should change the User ID and Password.

I gorgot my wep passpphrase


Hi,

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.1.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as password (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

New laptop want to connect but forgot key


what you want exactly?password for what? username and password for internet in subscriber? or just WEP for wireless key password?
if you forgot the password for username and password for subscriber....theres an option,i dont know what kind of subscriber do you have in your country...if you forgot the username and passowrd you can ask in the subscriber.
regarding in the WEP password for wireless,it doesnt matter,try this..
type 192.168.1.1 in the internet toolbar
username:admin
password:admin
and you can see the configuration,check the wireless settings for WEP...

The password key


usually by using its IP address.

you will need to use a computer that is already connected to the router (internet)

open up internet explorer (or other browser) and in the address bar try the following:
http://192.168.1.1
http://192.168.0.1
http://192.168.2.1
http://172.16.1.1
http://172.16.0.1
http://172.16.2.1
also, i see someone recommends trying
http://192.168.1.254

it will ask your for a username and password which, unless changed during setup will be the router's default such as
admin/admin
admin/1234
etc

both the router's default IP address and default username and password will be in the instruction manual
