WPS button


I have a WRT54G router and there is no WPS button.

This is a cut and paste from Cisco engineer:
Wi-Fi Protected Setup or WPS is a somewhat new feature on most routers. However, I believe that the WRT54g was release prior to this feature. The installation disc for your wireless adapter is trying to circumvent network discovery and the process of entering a wireless password by using the WPS feature. Without using the installation disc to setup the adapter should still be able to connect to your Wi-FI network. Only use the disc to install the drivers for your wireless card and the wireless access utility. After you have done this:
1.Open the wireless utility and you should see available networks
2.Select your Wi-Fi network
3.If the network is open (not password proctected) you should be connected immediately
4.If the network is secured (password protected) then you will prompted to enter your password or preshared key
5.After entering the key you should be granted access to the network

Many households have unsecured wireless networks, which can lead to hackers as well as leaks in confidential information. However, you can password-protect your wireless network by taking some basic steps.

Determine your network IP address by navigating to the "Start" menu and selecting "Run." In the Run dialog, type "cmd" (without quotes) and click "OK." The Command Prompt dialog opens. Type "ipconfig/all" (without quotes) and press "Enter." The command prompt will display a list of data for you network, including your IP address. Launch a Web browser and input your IP address in the address box. The control page of your router is displayed. Refer to the manual that came with your specific router on the manufacturer password/user name to login to your network. Usually the User Name is "admin" or "password" and the password is either "admin" or "password." Sometimes these fields are left blank. After logging into the router you can access the administrative functions. Within the administrative functions, navigate to the security settings. Within the security settings, you can change the username and password to log in to the router. Disable the router's remote administrative functions. Remote administrative functions allow anyone using the Internet to access your router. To be more secure, disable these options. The only reason to enable them is if a network administrator isn't always on location. Change the network's name. Your router comes with a default network name like WLAN or Linksys. These names are referred to as SSIDs. You want to change the name to something that you will recognize, but others won't associate with you. If your name is John, don't call your network "John's Network." Enable encryption and enter a password in the appropriate field. Wireless routers use several types of encryption, including WPA2, WPA and WEP.
At the time of publication, WPA2 (Wi-Fi Protect Access 2) is the most secure encryption format available on some routers. But you can't use this encryption type if your router doesn't support it. WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) is recommended if WPA2 isn't available on your specific model. WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy is the least secure of all the encryption formats and is relatively easy to hack. If you have no other choice, use at least WEP encryption. Some protection is better than no protection.. Record your password and settings for future reference. If you lose your password, you can reset your wireless router to the manufacturer's default settings by pressing the router's "Reset" button, usually found on the back of the unit. Remember to re-secure your network after a reset.

I have got a 2nd laptop and cant remenber my password to connect it to my wireless connection


If yuor first laptop is able to connect then try installing SIW on it and click the PASSWORDS link to see if it will retrieve the wireless password off the first laptop.
If not, and you cannot get into the router either, you will need to reset the netgear to factory by depressing the reset button in the back for 10 seconds, which resets the login to 'admin' and the password to 'password' to allow access to the router, and setting the wireless security to NONE - allowing you to change it to something you can remember.

If you are able to get into the router, but simply cannot remember the wireless password, you can reset it to something else without resetting the router through the wireless security menu in the router. You will need to then set both laptops to use the new password.

Our router is visible for others and everyone has free access! how to block this router for others?(network is unprotected now without any password or whatever). Thanks in advance. E


  • Please follow the below instructions to protect your device:


  • Connect your computer to the router using a network cable, or you can connect to the router through a wireless connection. Note that your wireless card in your computer must be enabled.
  • Open your Web browser. Enter: http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. This is an internal IP address to access your router. Press the Enter Key.
  • When the password request appears leave the user name field blank. By default, the password is admin.
  • After logging in, you are not required to change the default administrative password. However, it's fully recommended that you change the default password by clicking on the Administration tab and Management. Enter a new password in the Password field and again in the Re-enter field to confirm.
  • I recommend setting the Remote Management item as Disable. It will be another layer of security for your router. With this configuration you can only access your router for programming using a standard Ethernet network cabling.
  • To save the new password, click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
  • To avoid intruders accessing your wireless connection we'll start to work with the Wireless tab.
  • In the Basic Wireless Settings enter a name for your wireless network connection in the Wireless Network Name (SSID). Set the Wireless Broadcast to Disable.
  • When wireless clients survey the local area for wireless networks to associate with, they will detect the SSID broadcast by the Router if the Broadcast is enabled. Do not broadcast the Router SSID. It must be Disabled.


  • Note that your SSID should be set following similar rules for setting a password, e.g. at least 8 characters, a combination of letters, numbers and non consecutive characters.


  • Disabling the SSID broadcast is not a strong security setting, but it can help prevent intruders from sharing your WLAN. Remember to save your settings.


  • Enable network authentication and encryption. Listed in order strongest to weakest:

WPA2-PSK (data encryption TKIP or AES)

WPA-PSK (data encryption TKIP or AES)

WEP (256 Bit) - Weak, but better than no encryption

WEP (128 Bit) - Weaker, but better than no encryption

WEP (64 Bit) - Weakest, but better than no encryption

In order for you to find your routers address, click START, RUN, type CMD followed by RETURN or ENTER, and type IPCONFIG/ALL followed by RETURN or ENTER. Look for DEFAULT GATEWAY. Put that address in your browser to access it.

Netgear router DG834GT


To do this you do not need the installation disk.

1. Click Start, Run, CMD, enter. Type 'ipconfig /all' and write down or remember the ip address for your default gateway.

2. open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 (or whatever the ip address is for your default gateway.) hit enter.

3. In the username and password login screen type admin for both. If this doesn't work, try using admin for just the password, if no luck try again for just the username, until you are logged in.

4. Go to wireless settings, security, and find the part where you can set your wireless password. It is also a good idea to use wpa personal instead of wep, because it is a stronger encryption method.
