I think you try to change the password with your wireless conection, right?
Things WILL go wrong if you access the Routher wireless, use a cable when you want to make changes.

    When less than a quarter feel the need to vote for the effort some of us at FixYou offer, I think to myself, ”is it worth it”.

    They get help, and do not care to thank you; “thank you” do not cost a dime, so why????

I know my password and username but it says invalide username and password


Either you've (1) entered the credentials incorrectly, (2) remembered them wrong or (3) someone has gained access to the router and changed them.

You can solve this problem only if you have physical access to the router. You should locate the reset button on the router itself. This may be recessed to prevent accidental contact, and if so - will require depressing it with a pointed object such as a pen. Performing a reset will wipe all customized settings and restore the router to factory defaults. This means you will not have wifi access to the router or internet *if* you have changed it from the original factory setting. If you are attempting this via wifi, you will need to know what those wifi settings are or connect the computer via CAT 5 network cable to one of the LAN jacks or ports on the router. Once you have found the the default wifi settings - or - have plugged the computer into a LAN jack, reboot the computer. Next, press and hold the reset button for 30 seconds while it is plugged in & powered up.

This will start the restoration of the factory default settings and cause a reboot the router. The PC will obtain an IP address automatically if connected by cable - or prompt you for the wifi's SSID and security code after it boots up. Enter the wifi factory defaults to gain access to the router and internet.

Next, gain access to the router's "set up" pages. The set up page is usually access by opening your web browser and typing 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1, or similar private IP address in the address bar. Your manual will have these details. If successful, you will be prompted to provide the router username and password. Again, the factory defaults are in your manual - popular username defaults are "admin" or "root" and popular passwords are: ""admin" or "password"

If successful, you're "in". You should make changes as necessary to prevent others from gaining unauthorized access - again. Do not reuse any of the previous credentials if possible. This means you should (1) change the password (and admin if allowed) fields to something only you would know and do not use words that appear in a dictionary. A mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and symbols should be used. (2) Change the SSID to something other than the default. (3) Choose the option of NOT broadcasting the SSID. (4) Select WPA or WPA2 security. WEP is NO longer considered secure and should not be used. (5) Create another "password" for the WPA security as prompted. You will have to update every device that you wish to give access to the internet; this includes laptops, tablets, game consoles, wifi enabled cell phones, etc. You can make other changes as needed - as these are only the bare *minimum* changes you should make. Be sure your changes are saved before moving to other set up pages or rebooting the router.

Finally, write down the router's admin, password, SSID, security type (WPA or WPA2), security code and the IP address on a small piece of paper. Tape it to the underside of your router. This way, it will remain out of view but readily available to you should you ever forget this information and will save you from having to do all of this again.

Good luck!

While trying to secure the router the process stopped and was incomplete. Now I cannot access the router to gain internet access


If you cant get on whatever network is being broadcast from the router, theres a reset button on the back of the router. Hold it down for a few seconds and it'll be reset back to the factory default. Hook it up to the ethernet and connect to the network (should just be linksys)
From here, open an internet browser and type 192.168.1.1 in the url. Login using admin for the username and password. From here you can set up your router and put a password etc onto it.
Hope this helps.

I need to lock the signal in my computer so people will stop using it in my building


Hi,

You can change or setup a password for your router so that other people cant connect or use your internet connection. For you to setup your own password you need to access the router settings page and for you to access that you need to type 192.168.1.1 to he address bar of your browser and it will ask you for a username and password. The default username is "leave it blank" and the default password is admin. If you want to personalize the password of your wireless connection go to the Wireless Settings Page. Set the Security Type to WEP, WPA or WPA2 and put a personalize Network Key or Passphrase. Network Key serves as a password on the network so that the connection is secured.

Rate me if this helps so that i can help other people like you

My neighbor is connecting to my router,Iwould like to stop him


For wireless security:
You need to login to your modem and add security, so that you can connect and your neighbour cannot. Unless you have changed your login details, look at the back or underneath your modem. It should tell you what your defualt login is and how to get to it. You normally access your modem using a web browser (Internet Explorer, Chrome, Firefox etc.) and typing in the address e.g. 192.158.0.1 in the top/address line.
Then you will be prompted for a username and password (see what the sticker on the modem says, e.g. admin and password.
Once inside that menu, look for WLAN or Wireless settings. You can then setup security e.g. WEP or WPA and some other options. Set the security to WPA and choose a password that you can remember. Once you have chosen Done/Apply/OK or similar, you will probably lose your connection. If you then choose your wireless, you will be prompted to enter a password.

The other alternative is, if you have a desktop connected by ethernet to the modem and don't need wireless, you can go into the same menu and switch wireless off.

Need to secure wireless connection


1. Connect the computer to your Wireless router then using the internet explorer access the router gui 192.168.1.1abd7975.jpg 2. It is extremely important that you change the password for your router. Select a strong password using numbers and letters. This is the password that you will use to login and configure your router after this initial setup. 61e656e.jpg+
79ee205.jpg 3. Select a unique name for your wireless network. The name of your network is known as the SSID. This is what wireless users will use to identify which router and network they connect to. 94c0abe.jpg
