Can't configure my laptop to this new router. It asks for a password, which I did not need to use on my MAC when I installed it. Where do I find the "password".

    I tried this solution. I STILL don't know which "code" to use- I've tried them all.

  • drjanb Nov 15, 2008

    "Inside the Router" to get the password. On the back of my router I have 4 code numbers. Which one do I use?
    When I was installing this router (new as of last week) I was never asked for a password.

    Thank You for your assistance. I still did not solve the problem. Can I call anyone regarding this issue?

    I feel frustrated because I just bought the router and modem (my new puppy ate through the wires of my old one), I have been unable to connect my laptop to the internet and I have just spent another $10 trying to do so - next step is going back to Best Buy for assistance.

    I do appreciate what you have attempted to do on-line.

  • drjanb Nov 16, 2008

    I tried your suggestion and it still didn't work.  I have the Geek Squad coming over on Monday.  The reason I contacted your web site was due to my searching "DYNEX.com" and your site came up.  I thought you were the official site for this router.  


    Thank you for your assistance.

Hi,

Initially, pls postback with the brand/model of the router. Alternately if Windows based, just set the new laptop to automatically "Obtain IP address" inside the TCP/IP Properties of the Local Area Networking or Internet Connection. Another to try is determine the networking numbers used by the MAC which includes IP address, Subnet mask, Default Gateway, DNS servers and enter the same to the new laptop with the exception of the IP address, just do a +1. Example if the MAC uses 192.168.1.11, set the new laptop to use 192.168.1.12, all others stay the same. A hitch though maybe encountered if the router uses WEP, WPA security or MAC address filtering.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information. Good luck and kind regards. Thank you for using FixYa.

    Based on your recent post, new router, new modem, then perhaps you could try:


    • install the modem first and connect it to your computer using LAN / Ethernet cable;

    • run the CD installer that came with it;

    • verify that that single computer can then access the internet;

    • remove the modem CD installer and put in the router CD installer;

    • follow on screen instructions;

    • connect only the router when instructed to do so.
    Cheers.

    If the passwor di the wireless key, to access to the router via wireless then you need to connect to the router with a cable.
    Then open router IP using Internet Explorer.
    Log into the router and go to the wireless menu, there you find the key.
    Refer to the router manual to get router IP, router access ID and password, and procedure to access the router control panel using Internet Explorer.

You may need to access the router's setup page using the working computer to verify the wireless settings, which includes the wireless security enabled in the router. By the way, what is the model of the router you have?

Posted on Nov 15, 2008

  • Jannette Amandy Nov 15, 2008

    You need to access your router's setup page by launching IE and typing 192.168.2.1 on the address field. If it asks for a password, type the password that you can remember you setup when you first run the setup cd of your Dynex router. Otherwise, just leave the password field blank.



    Once you're in the router's page, click Wireless from Menu then click Security. There you will find the wireless/network key configured in the router.



    Hope this helps!

How do I install a wireless router on my pc


Attach the cable which comes in to your house to the new router (this should be in the routers' instructions) and make certain that there is power to it.
On your PC: most newer models will 'find' the new device and will ask if you want it installed or if you have a disc for it.
In Windows you should be able to go into Device Manager or Network if it doesn't pop up and ask you for installation.
On a MAC/IPhone/IPad it will pick up the signal automatically and then you set your preferences under 'General' ICON.
If this is your first wireless you will have to pick a network and name it as your default.

I dont know the wifi password -windows 7 of my broadband


When you power up the wireless router and the LEDs are ON then the router appears to be OK and this also applies to the DSL or cable wireless modem. To check if the modem is configured to your ISP settings and the modem connects to the Internet, connect the modem with a LAN cable to your laptop and check if you can get into the Internet. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router's wireless settings configured and also needs the wireless cards in all the laptops and or computers to be configured with the router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router. To set-up and secure the wireless router from unauthorized access, follow these steps: - 1, Connect the wireless router to your computer with a LAN cable.
2. Start your browser and enter the router's configuration URL IP address.
3. Enter the router setup, login and password
4. Change the admin password
5. Go to the wireless settings and change the default SSID and turn off SSID broadcast.
6. Setup encryption key the strongest is WPA2 (if not then WPA). The encryption key can be easily set up using a passphrase (it can be an alpha numeric phrase or words). 7. For further security measures - turn on MAC address filtering and enter the MAC address of the wireless cards on the computer/s you want to connect to this wireless router.
8. Record the settings you have made and keep it in a safe place and Save the settings.
9. Configure the wireless cards on the computer/s with the SSID and encryption settings of the router.
10. Remove the LAN cable between the router and the computer then the computers should be able to connect to the router wirelessly.

Trying to password protect my wireless internet with Netgear router and it is now telling me I have limited access when I try to connect to the internet with my laptop


Hi,
If you have password protected your router,and after the same its giving you a limited access, you need to delete the existing wireless connection and create a new one. When you are configuring the new connection it would ask you the password that you have given , the box where you need to put it in is called the Network key box. You can call netgear support and they can walk you through it aswelll.


Thanks

Can not connect laptop to wireless router computer is asking for Security key or password I will not accept password where would security key be found


The security key is defined in the router configuration. If it is your router, you can enter in the router configuration and, depending on the security mode you select, you can choose your own password.

Of course, if you already defined your password, make sure you're not using other caracters then alphabetical or numerical.

We have purchased a new notebook{higrade brand vista OS} to replace a packard bell using XP the XP laptop connected no problem the newone finds the belkin router but won't connect to the internet are...


Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.
