How do I remove the need for a passwork on centurylink wireless after I set up the password already?


There's probably an option where you can tell it to operate in "unsecured mode", which doesn't require a password. If you do that, though, anyone can use your wireless... and if they CAN, they WILL. You may end up with strangers getting all your Internet bandwidth, leaving you with nothing.

Widows will not validate the identity of my wireless router


Are you using a software disk? What is the wireless device? I'm not sure what you mean by "validate the identity"? Does the Laptop see the wirelss in Available Wireless Networks, in the windows Network and Sharing Center? Is the wireless password protected? What OS are you using in the IBM ThinkPad T40.

I have the Linksy router set up fir my lap top. I just purchased a kindle and want to conect to the wirelss using the router. It appears on the wirelss set up on the kindle - when I enter the password and...


Recheckyour password at the router. start your browser on the laptop and type 192.168.1.1 into the address bar. A pop up window should appear for you to "log into" your router. IF you have never done this then leave the user name blank and type "admin" in the password. Once your connected to the router, choose "wireless" from the top menu and go to wireless security. Make sure your security settings are set and what the "pass phrase" is. maybe reset a pass phrase and choose WPA for the settings.

If you don't know the password, then you need to reset the router,
Hold it down the reset button with the help of a pen point and power cycle your router. Then re-do the configuration following the manufacturer's instructions. Then you can set password for your router.satheeshd_0.jpg

When i log on to internet my wirelss router asks for a passphase i did not set upthe router how do i find out or reset passphase


The passphrase is a way of setting up the encryption code in the wireless router. This is used to protect your wireless router from unauthorized access.
The passphrase is configured in the router wireless configuration and this configuration is applied to the wireless card in the laptop/computer to allow the laptop/computer to connect to the wireless router.
Please click on this link and follow my instruction to configure your wireless router and wireless card in the laptop/computer :-

Wireless connection


You must obtain/set up one.

1. hook up a computer to one of the numbered ports on the back(eTHERNET CABLE. Like a phone jack but longer.)
2. wait untill the computer says it is connected.
3. open your internet browser, and go to this address: http://192.168.1.1(the routers internal setup)
4. type in "admin" in both boxes.(if you havent set up a password yet)
5. go to "wireless", "Wireless Security"(bar below first one), either choose DISABLED(you will not be protected from strangers accessing your internet, slowing yours down) or one of the choices and type anything in(recommend 15+ characters, better yet random. WRITE THIS DOWN.)
6. Click save changes
7. Go on your wireless enabled computer, and if you used a key, enter it, otherwise it should connect
