Where do I find 8 digit pin number for RTA1025WE router so we can use a Wireless N Nano USB Adapter


There are two ways to do a setup for a wireless adapter:
* use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to one of the LAN ports on the router; login to the router; and set the SSID (the name you are choosing for your wireless network). Then, put that Nano USB adapter into the computer, and it should load the device-drivers, and eventually will ask for the name of the SSID. Then, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable, and use the wireless connection;
* as you have discovered, some routers have (and some do not have) an 8-digit 'PIN' number.

Hi Friends,

When you are connecting the Belkin router in Wireless,if it asks for PIN Number then please follow the below mentioned standard steps,

Step 1:Connect the belkin router to any one of your computer with an enternet cable.

Step 2:Open Internet Explorer and type 192.168.2.1 and click on Enter button in the keyboard.

Step 3:Now you will be able to see the belkin router page

Step 4:On your left side click on Wifi Protected Setup (WPS),now it will ask for password leave it blank and click on Submit.

Stpe 5:Now Change the WPS (Wifi Protected setup) to disable and click on Apply Changes.

Step 6:Now Try to connect the Wireless Networks in your wireless computer,it wont ask for PIN Number.

The above mentioned steps are the standard steps for the this problem.This is done because by default the belkin router's will be enabled with 2 security features so we have to disable any one of this feature.If you disable this then you wont have any Problem in the belkin router.

My new HP desktop is asking for PIN of wireless router. My router is Netgear N600 WNDR3400v2. All I can find is two MAC #'s and the S/N. Where is the PIN?


This router does not use any type of PIN. You may be confused as the HP wireless networking setup may be asking for the "password", or WPA2 key that secures the wireless network. This must be entered before the router will accept the client and assign it a network IP address. The WPA2 key is stored in the router under the Wireless Settings Option. Unfortunately, if you don't know the key, going there won't help you as the key is not visible.

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.

I want to set up my LINKSYS network adapter and my laptop asks for the pin number? where is the pin number?


When youclick Refresh network list, then Choose yourwireless network and then click Connect to your secured WirelessNetwork, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.

My network setup is asking for a pin number that is on my router. Obviously there is no pin number for this particular router and my network is asking for a 4 or 8 digit number. What do I do?


If its asking for a pin number I would check the sticker on the bottom of the router. it may have the router PIN you are looking for. If not trying typing in your internet browser address bar 192.168.1.1 and find the network settings and see if there is a pin set up, if so write it down or clear it to have no PIN
