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 tri to connect internet error code 51330


Error code 51330 is trying to tell you that the Wii Wireless Adapter cannot connect to your wireless router. The most likely reason for this error is that the password you entered is not typed correctly, or that you forgot to type one in at all. Remember that security keys are always case sensitive.

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

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.

Yahoo does not accept my password for e-mail, yet I can go to Y!Mail with no problem ??? This started late Oct. and I have done everything I have been told to do. No luck.... What next??


Click the link that says "I forgot my password"

Get a new password and work with it. If you continue to have this problem, contact yahoo tech support and let them know that someone has been trying to get into your site. This is likely to be the only reason your password doesn't work for your account, unless you keep forgetting your password...

I forgot my password to use wireless internet


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.

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..

username:admin
password:admin
and you can see the configuration,check the wireless settings for WEP...

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.

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
