When accessing the router’s web-based setup page, a log-in screen will appear asking for the router’s password. The router’s default password is “admin.” You should change the password for security purposes.
The router’s password must be changed to:

  • Prevent unwanted users from accessing the router’s web-based setup page.
  • Enable Remote Management.
The router’s IP password can be changed by:
  • Running the router’s setup CD.
  • Changing it on the router’s web-based setup page. For instructions, please follow the steps below.

SETTING UP A WIRELESS PRINTER WITHOUT A WIRELESS ROUTER - WINDOWS 7
Install Virtual Router first "Turn any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot Spot."
EditByBSEditor: Virtual Router turns any Windows 7 or Windows 2008 R2 Computer into a Wifi Hot SPOT using Windows 7's Wireless Hosted Network (Virtual Wifi) technology.
The Wireless Network Create/shared with Virtual Router uses WPA2 Encryption, and there is not way to turn off that encryption. This is actually a feature of the Wireless Hosted Network API's built into Windows 7 and 2008 R2 to ensure the best security possible.
You can give your "virtual" wireless network any name you want, and also set the password to anything. Just make sure the password is at least 8 characters. http://www.brothersoft.com/virtual-router-327895.html Then install Connectify-Me Connectify is an easy to use software router for Windows 7 computers. After downloading and installing the lightweight application, Connectify utilizes your computers' built in Wi-Fi card to wirelessly share any available Internet connection: a cable modem, a cellular card, or even another Wi-Fi network. Other Wi-Fi enabled devices including laptops, smart phones, music players, and gaming systems can see and join your Connectify hotspot just like any other Wi-Fi access point and are kept safe and secure by password-protected WPA2 Encryption. http://www.connectify.me/ Then reboot computer

How to connect hp all in one via WLAN?


One of the easiest ways to connect a printer via WLAN is to get a Wireless G Print Server. This print server will be connected via the USB cable of the printer and it communicates with your wireless router that is probably already connecting all your pc's or laptops. The installation may be a bit tricky but it just calls for some patience and make sure you follow the instructions carefully.
I would recommend a Linksys Wireless G PrintServer. It is cheap and quite dependable.
Hope this helps...
