Used Router... But Thats It

I aquired an Edge X5 through my employer at no charger. But all that I recieved in the transaction was the router itself, and I need to know what else I need to configure the router to my network and ISP. I havent been able to find any information on this. Is their anyway to get this router to work without actally having purchased it, like Watchguard sending me new software for the product. I just need any information on how to configure this new router.

I have a D-Link wireless N 300 Router DIR-615 I canot get the password to work to add more items to work with my router yes it has a reset button and i have pushed it..

Check the label under or at the back of the router for the default user name and password.. If you can't connect with this information try a reset ... hold the reset button in for 30 seconds to attempt a reset. If unsuccessful try again but also hold the button in while unplugging and reconnecting the AC adaptor at the back of the unit. If it still fails to reset after trying this a few times the unit may have a hardware failure.

Password protect wireless access

You'll need to access the administrator web page for your router, and then set a security key (password) for wireless users.

For step-by-step instructions for setting up security on the D-Link DI-614 router, see:

I lost, or dont remember, the password to my Cisco router

routers have a way to be reset when this happens. It is usually done by pressing a button on it for a few seconds. This kind of button usually needs to be pressed by a pen tip or unfolded paper clip. Once the reset process is completed, your router will either have no password assign for th default administrator account or have it reset to a default which is mentioned in your router configuration, usually "admin".
If you provide us with the exact model number of your router, which can be found on the router itself, we can provide you with the exact location or the reset button and what will be the credentials to log in after the reset.

I don't remember my WEP key for my wireless

Reset your router .Just about every modern router can be reset by following a very simple procedure. Either flip it upside down or look at the back for a small hole with the word RESET. All you have to do now is just find a small paper clip and stick one end into the whole while the router is turned on.
Normally, you have to hold down the button for 5 to 10 seconds. At this point, you should see the wireless router flash, blink, or simply restart. Once it has fully rebooted, the router is back to it's original state.

How do i set my router up with a passxode so nobody can link ur to it

Configure the Router 1. Step 1
Open your web browser, type " " into the address bar and hit "Enter."
2. Step 2
Use "Admin" as the username in the pop-up box and leave the password blank.
3. Step 3
Connect to the Internet and click on "Internet Setup."
4. Step 4
Select your connection type from the drop-down menu. Choose "DHCP" for cable modems or "PPPoE" for most DSL modems. If you are unsure of these options, check with your ISP.
5. Step 5
Set a service set identifier (SSID) to identify the router and change the password.
6. Step 6
Encrypt your wireless connection using a Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key. Under the "Wireless Security" option, enter a passphrase and click "Generate." This will generate a password which will need to be used by any client connecting to your router.

How to configure the two wifi router

Are you trying to cascade two wireless routers? If yes, here's how:

1. First make sure that the first router (will serve as the server router) should be working. And then get the IP address of the server router.

2. Connect a CAT5 cable from the WAN port of the server router and the other end of the CAT5 cable should be connected to any of the LAN ports of the client router (which is the second router).

3. Then connect a computer directly to the client router and access its WEB UI.

4. Disable the DHCP server capability of the client router and set a static IP on the client router and make sure that it has the same IP range as the server router so that they would communicate.

5. After making sure that the two routers are on the same IP range, connect a computer to the server router and then ping the IP of the client router. Once you can ping it, then it should work.

If you're having a trouble with the setup or should you wish to have more information about the router, then refer to the router's user manual for necessary information.

Good luck and have a great day!

How to enable router security system

Wireless security is difficult to handle simply because the manufacturers have different interfaces to the management software. Netgear has a very good description of how to set up the wireless security in the manual, if you have misplaced the manual it can be downloaded at:

Any posted answer would be multipages long and simply a rehash of the manual.
I recommend using the WPA-PSK.

If you have specific questions they can be answered quickly.
