Device Ownership Password

Trying to connect another computer to my security enabled wireless network through a D-Link wireless router (DIR-615) and I'm prompted for a 'Device Ownership Password'. It's not a password that I use, so I'm not sure what it's asking for... it apparently consists of 6 numbers, and the prompt indicates that I should be able to find it on the device, but there's nothing that would fit this password criteria.

Is there a default password? If not, how can I figure out from the back end of my current connection with the original laptop (Dell XPS M1330, Windows Vista)?

HELP!!!!

    I have a similar problem..... resetting the default settings on the router doesn't hep. that simply allows you to connect a "first device" (laptop) to the router. To connect an additional laptop you need it's "Device ownership password" which is a six digit number and nowhere to be found. It's a Fujitsu/Siemens Amilo M7400. any help would be appreciated.

The D-link has an 8 digit numeric PIN code on the label near the UPC code. This is what you want.

The default password is found near the upc symbol on the router. That said i find it easier to reset the router before i reconfigure it. You can do this with a pen. on the back you will find a small hole. Put the pen in there and hold for thirty seconds and voila its reset to factory settings.

hope this helps

Hey, this might work, if ur laptop/desktop has an Intel-Based motherboard, it may also have an Intel ProSet Wireless Adapter/Chip.

Unfortunately, there's currently a bug causing it to conflict with the WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) of the router. We just need to disable this (this is different from the Wireless Security/WEP/WPA).

After disabling this, refresh the wireless network, once the wireless device and router pair up, we can now re-enable the WPS of the router (or just leave it disabled).

I am connected to a DIR 615, it says I have wireless connection but it won't connect wireless, if I connect a cable it is fine??


Hi mike63771,

All you need to do is to set it up properly. Make sure that the router is connected to the computer using an ethernet cable so that the computer will be able to communicate with the router. Then open a browser type 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. The default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings Page then check the SSID or Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. Now try to connect to your computer. Click on Start then click on Connect To. Select your Network Name then if it ask you to enter a password enter the Network Key. You can personalize the network key on the router settings page.


Rate me if this helps so i can help other.

Thanks for using Fixya.

I am trying to connect my ipod touch to wireless dlink dir 615, but I need a password. How do I get the password


When you configure the "wireless" adapter inside the D-Link router, you should set:
* an SSID (a name for your wireless network)
* an encryption-level - hint: use 'WPA'
* a password for your wireless network

Once you've done the configuration, use the SSID/password on your iPod Touch.

I have a DIR-615 router and can not locate the device ownership password. It is not on the label beneath the MAC address. Any ideas?


This Device Ownership password is actually reffering to the WPS PIN number of your router which is usually on the sticker on the device. If you can't see it anywhere on the device, scan for wireless networks and connect to your network.
Once it will ask for the device Ownership password again, just click on the phrase that says " I want to enter a network key or passphrase instead" or " I don't want to configure, I just want to connect" ( this is applicable with vista ). If you have an XP computer and your using the wireless utility of your computer, disable that utility and use the Windows Zero Configuration.
