Yes, it will set it all back to factory defaults
to set the security again on the router Support site for D-Link is here http://www.dlink.com/corporate/worldwideoffices/?redirect=/default.aspx In principle: Connect your PC to the router with a cable to one of the LAN connections - Now you need to Log into the setup of the router - to do that open a web browser, use Internet explorer (some routers setup pages do not work correctly with other browsers) In the browser address bar - http://192.168.0.1 Enter (admin) for the user name and also for the password. Now you can goto the wireless section or secruity section and set the type of encyption to WEP, WPA, WPA-PSK etc and then make up your own password
On the PC Double click on the wireless connection in the system tray (bottom right hand side of screen) and then connect manually to your wireless signal - you will be asked for the password you set in the router.
Now you are connected.
You may need to remove any old wireless profiles you have on the PC/Laptops

Can i change my wifi password ..casue i forget it


Hi Jeanine,

Yes, you can change your WiFi security key / pass phrase. Log into your router - many are on one of these addresses: http://192.168.0.1/ , http://192.168.1.1/ or http://192.168.2.1/ . You'll need to supply your username and password when prompted.

Once logged in, click on "Wireless" or "Wireless Security" to make changes to the wireless security type (Open, WEP, WPA, etc.) and the security key - among other settings. Be sure to save the settings before you exit out.

If you can't remember either the address, username or password to log in - you'll have to do a full reset by holding the reset button for up to 30 seconds or so and then redo all the settings from scratch. Check your Router / AP documentation or manufacturer's support pages for this information.

How do I prevent my neighbor from using my wireless router?


If you do not have any wireless network security enabled on the router, your neighbor can see this SSID and connect to the network without authorization. While this is generally frowned upon as being unethical, it is technically not illegal as you have "made the network available" by failing to secure it. The easiest way to secure the network is through the use of a WEP key or a WPA pass-phrase. WEP keys are generally 5, 10, 13 or 26 randomly generated characters long. WPA pass-phrases are just that - a phrase such as "The sun is yellow". Either method will prevent unauthorized users from accessing your network. Only those individuals who possess the key or pass-phrase are granted access.

These options is located under the Wireless > Wireless Security tabs from within the router administration.After login you can change the password.

If you need any kind of technical assistance you can contact support cell at here

I am trying to connect my wireless printer to the router, but when it comes to the WEP code, the one I have does not work. Is there a way to reset the WEP code?


Hi glenncj,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the WEP key or Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Wep Key. The Network Key or Wep Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.
You can also reset the router by pressing the Reset button at the back of it for 15-30 seconds using a Pen and a Paper Clip.

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

Can't find my password to connect my new ipad to my Belkin network. What can I do?


I'm assuming you are referring to the pass phrase or key on the router. Originally setup when you added security to your home wlan. Find the manual online for the Belkin router and reset it to factory defaults. Then set it up again with a pass phrase you can remember.

I have a wireless router and am trying to link up a laptop that we just restored to factory settings. We do not know the security key or the pass phrase. the model number is WRT54GS V7.2 serial #...


If you have forgotten your LinkSys messagebox_info.png router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.
To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and configure it again.
forgot-linksys-router-password.jpg To reconfigure your LinkSysmag-glass_10x10.gif, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a messagebox_info.png web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a messagebox_info.png popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.

What is wpa pass phrase while setting wireless printer


WPA with a Pre-Shared Key (PSK), also known as personal. PSK is entered as a pass phrase between 8 to 63 alphanumeric characters in the ASCII format at both ends of the wireless connection. Although PSK accepts a minimum of eight characters, for proper security, it is a good idea to use ample length and should not use a commonly known phrase. This phrase is used to generate session keys that are unique for each wireless client.

WPA pass phrase is a password for the wireless network to make it secured. You can obtain the WPA pass phrase when you access your router. Check the manual of your router for the address, username and password of your router. Go to wireless settings, you will see ther the SSID or Network Name, Network Key or the Pass Phrase and Authentication (WPA/WPA2/WEP). You can personalize the SSID,Network Key and Authentication. Remeber that for you to connect wirelessly the Authentication and Network Key on the router should match the Network Key and Authentication of the Printer or Computer.

What is my wep key


Wired Equivalent Privacy (WEP) is a deprecated algorithm used to secure IEEE 802.11 wireless networks. Wireless networks broadcast messages using a radio and are thus more susceptible to eavesdropping than wired networks.

Setting WEP up is done from the wireless security tab of your router configuration, this is usually accessed from your computer using the web address http:\\192.168.1.1 by default. It consists of a pass-phrase and a key. the pass-phrase is used to generate an encryption key, this is then necessary to use any packets (Bits of data) transferred over the air.

Beginning in 2001, several serious weaknesses were identified by cryptanalysts with the result that today a WEP connection can be cracked with readily available software within minutes.[2] Within a few months the IEEE created a new 802.11i task force to counteract the problems. By 2003, the Wi-Fi Alliance announced that WEP had been superseded by Wi-Fi Protected Access (WPA), which was a subset of then upcoming 802.11i amendment. Finally in 2004, with the ratification of the full 802.11i standard (i.e., WPA2)

I have internet with time warner so have linksys router wireless'but when a try to connect to other computer don,t work


First, check to make sure that you can get Internet through a wired connection, if you can't then wireless won't work either. Second, if you can, then try connecting to the wireless without using WEP or any security. You can turn this off by going to 192.168.1.1 in your web browser while wired to the router from your PC and go under wireless security. If you can connect from an unsecured access point then set up a WEP key with a pass-phrase and when you are asked for the pass-phrase from the PC use the the hex key 1 that is generated by the router instead of the pass-phrase. You should have no problem connecting. Thye wizard that comes on the configuration CD will not set up your wireless correctly, you really have to configure the system using the IP.
