There usually is a small recessed reset button on the back if you press and hold this for 5 secs while unplugged the router will revert to factory settings. (including clearing passwords)

you can then use the default connection details, which are usually published in the quick setup guide
this info may be replicated on the manufacturer's website

I have forrgotten my wep key password how do i connect a new lap top to the router by wireless


Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.

Click on wireless settings then WPA Security then not down code .It is your password to connect wi fi..
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.

Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.

If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.

I have a wpn824-2 and I am trying to set up a connection from my lap top. It is asking me for a network key or wep key. Where do I find it?


You can get the WEP or Network Security Key from the Router.

Login to the Router as follows (make sure that it is connected to the Computer using LAN-Wired connection):

1. Start the Web Browser like Internet Explorer or Firefor or Safari.

2. Type 192.168.1.1 as the URL.

3. Type "admin" as user name and as "password" as password.

4. Go to the "Wireless Settings" option.

5. Set the Wireless Network Password (either WEP or WPA key) will be listed next to Security Encryption.


You may also use any third party utility to get the Wireless Security key save in the Computer (in which wireless connection is working and key is saved).


Good Luck!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

You can bypass that asking for information step. Simply go to Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Connection > clik Add > select Add a Network in Range of Computer > then select your wireless network and connect. It will then prompt you to type your wireless network key. You should be good to go after that.
