Question about Linksys WRT160N Wireless Router
Device ownership password:
Control Panel->add or remove programs-> Intel(R) PROSet/Wireless Software -> Modify -> Unmarked WI-FI PROTECTED SETUP
Posted on Dec 17, 2008
I have a Dell and have used it all over the world and until I purchased a new Linksys WRT310N wireless router, I had no problems. With this new router I am asked to input a "device ownership" password. There are two ways, at least, to fix this. One, is to tell the Intel wireless NIC to stop asking for this information, the other is to give it what it wants.
On the PC open the control panel (these are XP instructions), open add/remove programs, find "Intel PROSet/Wireless Software" and click on Change/Remove. When the installer opens, select "Modify." When the modify window opens, you're looking for "WiFi protected setup" and you want to chose the "do not install" option. This will remove the pesky feature after hit "modify" and then reboot.
Use the feature as intended. Log into the router. Goto wireless->basic wireless settings and make sure WiFi Protected Setup radio button is seleted. Instructions are displayed. You want to look at item 3. The password you're looking for is there. Entering this password on your PC when asked to do so during network connection should solve the problem. This is theoretical because I chose option 1.

If you haven;t setup up anything yet
The normal should be
password admin or linksys
If this doesn't help let me know I'm trying to download the manual now
