On your router install cd there was an option to set WEP access. If you can get to this just disable WEP key security feature or type in the address bar the routers url- 000.000.000.0 this will get you to the routers setup utility.

Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

or
Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

Why will it not hook to the wireless internet? I have netgear and I have the little thing that plugs in to the computer...


To connect your computer to the Internet via a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Need wap key for netgear router DG834G v3 serial no 1JX169BC04A22 mac 00184D3FE256 Can you help please?


If it's not yours, you need to ask whoever it is for for the password. If the modem is for yourself, you should probably look for the manual for the wireless modem. Some of them come with a password, and the manual might tell you what it is.

As for someone else's internet, you need to ask them for the password.

WEP is an easy password, and a WAP consists of a lot more characters than a WEP

Hi I am trying to connect a netgear DG834G router but it arrived without instructions and installation cd?? I have no idea which cables to put where ... can you help me please? thanks


You will have to connect the netgear through a cat5 cable. Connect to the back of the pc and into one of the for same ports on the back of the netgear. Once you have done this open internet explorer and type in the address bar 192.168.0.1 that is the default ip code for that kind of router. once asked for the username and password type he following

Username : Admin
Password : password

Once in there goto basic settings and fill in all the information that you need.

If 192.168.0.1 doesn't work there is a little whole on the back of the router using a paper clip insert and press the button. This will reset the router back to defaults. You can download the manual from www.netgear.co.uk

Thanks J
