On a computer wired to your router.

Open an internet explorer browser. Click on the address bar and type in 192.168.1.1
Hit enter. It should ask you for a username and password.
Dont put anything in username and type in admin for the password
if it does not accept that it means that you changed the password
Now go to the wireless tab on top then you can see under it basic wireless this is where you change the name of the network under SSID then click save settings after the change

It sound to me that you have a wireless card in your laptop and you are picking up your neighbors wireless router!!!! which has no SSID set, thus "default" and has no encryption set, thus "unsecured network". Turn off your wireless adapter The only security on a Non-Wireless router is turning on the firewall. It should be enabled by default. The other thing would be to change the password on your router, but since you do not have a wireless router, then it is pointless, unless you do not want someone in your house to access the router settings and make changes. Ever then, if someone in your house that is physically connected to the router with a "cable" could alway walk to the router and stick a pin in the the "reset" hole in the back of the router to reset wipe any changes that was made, so a password is pointless as far as I am concerned for non-wirelss routers. open your browser and type http://192.168.1.1 Admin User name: Leave it blank Password: admin Once you login you can change your password if you like.

How do i rename wireless network connection


You need to access the wireless settings via the homescreen for the router. You need to type in the address of your router into your browser of choice, then log in to it. You can find the specific address for your router by looking it up online and what the default sign in name and password is ( you can then change that as well ). Many times the default is as easy as Admin/Password

Password problems.


Depending on the type of router, you could have various defaults set, if you never changed them.
You can press the reset button somewhere located on the router itself, using a pen/pin/pencil, and then google your brand of router asking what the default password is.
If it is a Linksys, you could google "Linksys default password" or "Linksys default login" for example.

Linksys wrt160n network name not showing up?


Hi Renwar13,

This is because on the router wireless page the name of the network was changed.

Usually Linksys is the default name and the person who manages the wireless network would have changed to some other name so as to prevent un authorized access to the WLAN.Please check the right name of the signal and try.


Regards,
Gary.

Intermittent Connectivity:

NOTE: Before following the steps in this article, check if your wireless computers have stable connection when connected to other wireless networks (hotspots).

This article assumes that all wireless computers are experiencing intermittent wireless connection with the Linksys router.

Frequent wireless disconnection can be caused by different factors such as:

  1. Wireless interference within the network.
  2. Wireless settings of the Linksys router are still set to default.
  3. Firmware is corrupted.

Reducing Wireless Interference

If you are experiencing frequent disconnection from the wireless network, it helps if you check the following factors, all of which can greatly affect your wireless signals:

your cordless telephone system (or even your neighbors'), or other nearby equipment. Try to change your router's channel to 1 or 11 (the default channel is 6) and restart the wireless computers.

Physical obstructions: Your router or wireless computers may be losing connectivity because of physical obstacles such as walls and floors. Try to move the equipment to different locations to find a better link.


  • Placement of the router: Linksys suggests that you place your router as high off the ground as possible. When placing the router in a high location, leave a distance of two feet between the router antenna tips, ceiling, and wall. If your signal passes through multiple floors, place the router on the upper-most floor, and high up in the room.
  • Surroundings: Keep the router away from large metal objects, bodies of water (fish tanks, bathrooms), and any electrical equipment including television sets, microwaves, radios, etc.
Customizing Wireless Settings of the Router
Having default wireless settings on the Linksys router may cause conflict with other Linksys routers within your network range. Linksys suggests changing the SSID (network name) and the Wireless Channel of your router. Also, if it is possible, enable the Wireless Security of your router.
To change the router's SSID or the wireless network's name, To change the router's channel, To enable the wireless security on the router, Log ionto your router, 192.168.1.1

NOTE: If the wireless connection remains unstable after performing the steps above, upgrade the router's firmware on Linksys

Usually the default password is admin with having the username blank. If your changed your username and password for the router and it won't log you in then hold the black reset button in till the router resets it's self to default settings.
