Changed password now can"t access router


Your laptop still insists on using the old password that's why it can't connect. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Select your router's SSID. Right click on it and change Properties > Security > Show characters. The old password that you forgot should appear. You may then change it to the latest one.

You may also click on the wifi signal icon on the lower right corner of your Taskbar, right click on the router's SSID, select Properties > Security > Show characters to reveal the old password you forgot and change it to the latest one.

How to set a password?


  • Access the router's default configuration address through your Web browser by entering this address: http://192.168.1.1 (see Resources). Do not enter a user name. Enter "admin" for the password. That process works for all new Linksys routers. If you have changed the user name or password in the past, use the user name and password that you created.

  • 2

    When the configuration screen opens, click on the "Wireless" tab and select "Wireless Security" to view the router's current security password. The "Security Mode" field will say "Disabled" if you do not have a password to secure your network.

  • 3

    Select the appropriate encryption type from the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. Linksys routers offer WEP and WPA encryption. WPA encryption allows you to use a single password to access the network. WEP encryption creates 10- or 26-character keys that act as your password. Some of your wireless devices may only utilize a certain type of encryption. Determine which protocol is best for your network.

  • 4

    Enter a password that will be required to access the network. For WPA encryption, you can write your own password. For WEP encryption, click the "Generate" button to create passwords that can be used to access the network. Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure location.

  • 5

    Click "Save Settings" to confirm your changes. Your network will now be secured and will require a password for access.

  • 6

    Click the "Administration" tab to create a password to access the router configuration page itself. Be sure to change the password from the default "admin." Reenter the password for confirmation in the next field. Click "Save Settings" to confirm your new password.

    Hi,
    1. Change the administrator password for access to the web interface on your router.
    2. Change the default gateway (192.168....) to another one.
    3. Enforce security with a share key you give only to those you want to allow access (several protocols are available)
    4. Enforce MAC filtering: You clone (enter ) the MAC addresses of all the machines you want to allow access. Any machine the MAC address of which is not registered (cloned) on the router will not be allowed.
    5. Enforce safety measures: Keep the router out of reach of the persons you do not allow, because they can reset and sneak in, especially if they seem to be more computer-savvy than you. (No offense meant here).
    6. Periodically, check the log of the wireless access to identify the unauthorized machines that may be piggybacking your network.

    These are the basic steps: If you can secure the router with a password and enforce MAC filtering (Forbid all machines excpect those with a MAC address entered by you) you make things harder for this intruder.

    Hope it helps.
    You should specify the Model number of the router. It helps.

    No network code for router want to connect my laptop to it


    Hello friend,
    i guess that you are talking about wireless code, in this case you will need to connect the laptop to the router via Ethernet cable to configure it and then unplug the cable and use the wireless.
    so you connect the ethernet cable between the laptop and one of the ports on the router from 1 to 4. then access to the router web interface which is usually 192.168.1.1. then go the wireless tab and name your wireless access point and put a password to secure your network. After that you can unplug your Ethernet cable and use the wireless on your laptop to connect your router wirelessly.
    Best Regards,

    Well once it is reset, in the configuration section of the router, for setting standard passwords, you can change the password, which is advisable.

    Next, for setting up a private wire/wireless network, My way of doing it is by setting the system up to Only allow Certain Mac Address's from the computers that are allowed to access to the internet through yours

    To get the MAC Address, Hit Start, Run Program, Command Prompt. Then in Command Prompt, enter this string line: ipconfig /all

    From there, it will give you the MAC Address for that computer. It should be a total of 12 Alpha Numeric Digits, Spaced with dashes between every 2. With that, you go into the router and in the Mac Address section for computers allowed to connect to your network, you enter in all the MAC Addresses that are allowed to use your network. Save, then it should refresh the page once that is done. With that, it makes a very hard to break Network that actually doesnt take much time. I was quite surprised 4 years ago to find that this was the easiest way to really set up a near perfect network with no issues

    Not able to connect to internet


    1. try to check the status of the connection:
    make sure it is connected and the status does not say either of the ff:
    a. local only
    b. limited or no connectivity
    c. limited access only

    2. try to change the network name [ssid] and the network key [wep or wpa passphrase]
    you can change this by accessing the ipaddress of the router or its user interface

    3.try to reconnect to the new network name
    and make sure the status says connected.

    this is not a browser issue . it is with the connection set up.

    Laptop access


    You can use TKIP AES and setup a simple password which you can use once you connect to the wireless network. Just give the password to your guests when they require access - they'll type it once and they're on their way.
