Question about Intel Computers & Internet

1 Answer

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 that he set the wireless up with(it does not prompt us for a password), However when guests come over and attempt to connect to the network, they are prompted for the password and cannot get on. How can I either obtain my current password or reset the password to a new one? I have a netgear wireless router and we use PC's with internet explorer. Our wirless connection looks like it is through Intel PROset/Wireless.

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.

How do I set up a secure password?


For trendnet

Your Trendnet wireless router lets you broadcast your home network across your entire house, so you can access the Internet in any room. This signal may be powerful enough to extend into neighbors' houses, where they could easily jump on the network if it is unsecured. To protect your network, set up Wireless Encryption Protocol, or WEP, to encrypt data and prevent access unless the user enters the correct password.

Type "http://192.168.0.1" in your Internet browser's address bar and press "Enter." Enter "admin" for the username and leave the password field blank. Click "Log In" to log into your Trendnet wireless router's administrative program. Click "Wireless" from the left pane of the "Basic" tab. Click "WEP" under the "Wireless Security Mode" section at the bottom of the screen. Enter your preferred password for the network. A strong password is made up of a random selection of numbers and letters. Click "Save Settings" at the top of the screen to save your WEP settings.

In my house i have a laptop with wired internet, 1 wii with wireless, 1 wireless access point. now i'm trying to get internet on my phone using wireless. however i forgot the network password. how can...


Some wireless routers have a web management page hosted by the router where you can change the password. You can access this by typing in the router's IP into the address bar on an internet browser. To get the IP of the router, on your PC, go to Start -> Run -> type cmd -> then type ipconfig /all. This will give you information on the network adapters on your PC. Find the entry "Default Gateway", this is your Router's IP. The router will ask you to authenticate using an account you set up along with a password. If you do not have these either you can access the admin account with a default password if you haven't change the admin's password. Here is a list of those. If you can't find you router or this does not work, most routers have a button on there exterior that will perform a factory reset. Hold the button down for 5-30sec and it will reset the router back to when you first bought it.

Can i change my wireless password nunber


Go to a computer that is currently hooked up to internet through that device, hit the start menu, go to run, and type cmd in the field and hit enter. When the command prompt comes up, type: (ipconfig) without the parentheses and hit enter. You should see "default gateway" and a set of numbers next to it. Like: (888.888.8.8) only different numbers of course. Open up internet explorer and type those numbers in the address bar at the top where you normally put in a website's name. Once you hit enter, it should ask you for a password, the default username is usually: admin the default password is also usually: password, or a set of 0's, or admin again. If you can get past that point you should be logged onto your device and be able to change anything you want. Let me know.

D-Link DIR-615 wireless modem, unknown password


You need to connect the modem to your computer via the cat-5 cable.
To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear of the unit. With the router power on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process. Wait for 30 seconds to access the router. The default address is 192.168.0.1 when logging in, the username is "admin" and leave the password box empty.
If you need the manual, you can download it at:
