Hi...
Type the address of the router into a web browser. The address may be on a label on the base of the router: it'll look something like http://192.168.0.1 depending on router model.

If there's no label and you're running Windows, go to Start >(Run) and type cmd. Then type ipconfig into the window that you see: and press return. You should the router address there under 'default gateway'.

You'll need a username and password to access the config screen. If you haven't changed it and it's still the default, that too may be on a label on the base of the router. Otherwise you might need to check the manufacturer's website for a manual, or check back here.

Hope this helps..... Good luck.

The guest access password would be assigned when you (or somebody) installed and configured your router.

In that case, you would need to look at your router configuration to find the password. This is usually done by directing your web browser to your router by typing in a web address something like http://192.168.1.1. After you connect and login, you will see screens that show your router configuration and you are looking for something like "wireless access" or "guest access". You will need to know the administrative user id and password of your router to see these screens.

Perhaps you already have other computers or devices (printer, Wii, Roku) connected wirelessly in your home. In that case, use the same wifi password that you used to connect those devices.

If, in fact, *nobody* configured your router (you just brought it home and plugged it in), then the default configuration will be active and you could find the default password in the documentation, either printed or online.

In any case, you could get better answers if you said what brand and model of router you are using.

Maybe your router came from your ISP (telephone or cable company) and they configured it. In this case, you could call their tech support line and ask for the password.

How to set the wireless password


The wireless password is set in your router configuration.

You need to access your router's configuration screens to set the password. This is usually done by directing your web browser to your router by typing in a web address something like http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1. After you connect and login, you will see screens that show your router configuration and you are looking for something like "wireless access" or "wifi access".

You will need to know the administrative user id and password of your router to login and access these screens. Assuming you haven't changed it from the default, these user ids and passwords can be found in the routers documentation, either printed or online or by using a web search engine. If your router came from your ISP (telephone or cable company) sometimes the admin user and password are printed on a label somewhere on the router.

For more specific instructions, please post the make and model of router you are trying to set up.

I am having trouble connecting my Samsung BD-C6500 DVD Bluray to my older Linksys G model WRT54GS ROUTER. HOW DO I FIND MY ACCESS CODE AND/OR PASSWORD TO THIS ROUTER.


Unfortunately, you can't find your Wireless Access Code of your router without knowing the password to access your router configuration. It is because, you can only see the Wireless Access Code by going to the router configuration page and in order to go to the router configuration page, you should know the router password.

You should reset your router to default. In order to do this, you can press the Reset button at the back of your router for 30 seconds. Then you can try to use the user name "admin" and password is "blank" or password or admin as well.

WIFI not working with Linksys wireless-g broadband router/Comcast


Unplugging the wireless router and connecting it again should not have altered the wireless connection/configuration. You have connected the cables correctly because the Internet works when you connect a LAN cable to the router.
The Linksys wireless configuration or the wireless card configuration in the computer was changed it to lose the wireless connection. The wireless card configuration needs to be changed to match the wireless router's settings or change the Linksys with new configuration settings and configure the wireless card accordingly.
To secure your router with a login password and wireless security, please follow my instructions - click on this link :-

I have a ZONET wireless router but don't know how to get my computer to read it


Your computer needs to have a network card to plug into the router 1st, using a CAT 5E network cable, so that you can access the configuration screen or if you have the software for the router you can use the USB port and install it like a peripheral device.

Try using http://10.0.0.1 to access the configuration screen using your internet browser

Once your wireless network is up you need to have a wireless network card in your PC so that you can access the wireless network.

Someone is getting into my computer using my wireless system. How can I block my wireless so no one can use my internet? How can I secure it?


they way you do it depends on the wireless access point (router) you have in your home. look for the router manual as you will need this information to get into the specific configuration.

in esence you need to the following:

1. go to your router configuration page. (check your router manual for details on how to this)
2. set an administrator password for your router so only you get access to the configuration page.
3. change the default name for your access point or even better hide it. (set it so it's not broadcasted by the router)
4. setup wireless security (depending on your router your options are wep, wap and wpa2.. set it to wpa2 if possible) this is how your connections its encripted so it's evesdropping becomes difficult or not worthy if someone were to try hard. (now days almost everything is possible with the right tools).
5. make a note of you ssid (name for your access point) and your passphrase.
6. configure your wireless systems to access the access point (router) using the new ssid and the passphrase you configured.

post your name and model of your router and I'll help you getting the manual you need.

WEP key


what is your router? do you know the gateway of your router?

1. Know what is your gateway by using a pc that is online hardwire to your router
> On that pc- check your gateway by doing ipconfig- your DG is your gateway
2. Then access the configuration page of your router- ex. 192.168.1.1
> Use your browser and type your gateway there.
> It will ask for username and password. You should know that.
3. When your inside your router's configuration page-look for wireless tab, then look for wireless security- you should be able to see there your wep key.
4. Finally type in that wep key on your toshiba laptop. It might ask you to confirm, so type it twice. =)
