Change password on Dell TrueMobile 2300 router

Hello

The default password is admin/admin.
I see no place in the admin console to change this password (or any information on Dell's support site!)

Is there not a risk of someone being able to get to the router, if they don't know the password to get onto the secure wireless?

Thanks.

Hello

I think you have to install a control utility first:
http://support.dell.com/support/edocs/network/p57205/en/config/control.htm

This is part of the setup process, but you might be able to go back and install the utility from your disk/download.

After this is installed, you should be able to use it to change the password:

I am trying to reset the password for my Dell 2300 router and can't access this number on the internet... 192.168.2.1


If you cannot access the router with the default password,or even the one you created, then most routers will have a small button (hole)that will restore the router back to the default settings.Every manufacturer's router is different, so auser Manual will often be required in locating the specific settings you needto change.

How do I lock my Dell TruMobile 2300 wireless router to keep the neighbors from getting access to my wireless internet connection


press win key + r
under run type cmd
on the command prompt type ipconfig
not down your defaut gateway.
type it in your web browser, and then enter the correct user name and password for the router.(i u dont know the user name leave it blank or try admin for both user name and password or its combination o call dell for it)
Create a unique password on your router : Once you have logged into your router, the first thing you should do to secure your network is to change the default password* of the router to something more secure.
This will prevent others from accessing the router and you can easily maintain the security settings that you want. You can change the password from the Administration settings on your router’s settings page. The default values are generally admin / password.
Change your Network’s SSID name:
The SSID (or Wireless Network Name) of your Wireless Router is usually pre-defined as "default" or is set as the brand name of the router (e.g., linksys). Although this will not make your network inherently* more secure, changing the SSID name of your network is a good idea as it will make it more obvious for others to know which network they are connecting to.
This setting is usually under the basic wireless settings in your router’s settings page. Once this is set, you will always be sure that you are connecting to the correct Wireless network even if there are multiple wireless networks in your area. Don’t use your name, home address or other personal information in the SSID name.
This is sufficient to secure your router from other to use it.

I have a TrueMobile 2300 router and my security code is not working. How can I change it?


The only way to reset the password if you can't remember the old one is to reset the device. To load the Dell TrueMobile 2300 Wireless Broadband Router's default settings, hold down the reset button on the router for at least five seconds. While the unit resets, the Power light blinks.
Then navigate to the router through your browser and Type the following as your username:
admin
Type the following as your password:
admin
Click the OK button.
The Dell TrueMobile Setup Page appears.

Click the Advanced Settings tab.
Click the OK button.
Click the Administration Settings button on the left side of the page.
Put a check in the box to the left of the Change Your Password setting under the section of the page titled Password Settings.
Type the password that you want to use in the New Password field.
Retype your password in the Retype Password field.
Click the Submit button.
Another window appears stating You have successfully submitted the settings to this device!
Click the Save and Restart button.
Your new password will be saved into the router settings.

This will however wipe all your settings!

Setting passwords on dell truemobile wireless router


Hello, The default address for the dell truemobile 1184 is 192.168.2.1 If you have changed it and forgot, unplug the router (elec) for 5 seconds. This will reset it to default. The default SSID is "wireless". If a user ID and/or password is asked for enter "admin". Here you can change settings, enable broadcast, change SSID, enable WEP or WPA. Hope this helps.
