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 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 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 or 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.

Need network security key

It depends. Not kidding!
Depending upon the available hardware and access to the wireless router, it could be as simple as examining the outside of the router and reading the network key off of a label on the router. failing that, you would likely need to have an ethernet cable that you can use to connect directly to a port on the router. Note that not many routers will allow access to the configuration through the wireless connection. You might be able to get to the smart part of the router by then using your browser. You can usually find the router manual on the internet to get the default IP and admin password to access the configuration. If nobody changed the configuration, then just getting access to the configuration should display the wireless key.
If this router is on your own network and you've forgotten the password, and you want to add some equipment, then consider resetting the router to factory settings, and default SSID and key. Check your manual, but usually putting a toothpick into the tiny hole and holding it for a number of seconds will cause the router to reset.
Once the router resets, you can access the configuration and set your password and SSID to what you want. You'll then need to configure all your other equipment with the network name and key.

Even if you have a PC that does talk on the network with the router now, you probably won't get the PC to show you the key for the network in the clear.

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 :-

Cannot connect my lap tp to the internet via my d link router on my desk top

Please indicate which is your issue.

Is your issue with the router's administrative password to used to configure the router?

Please confirm your router's manufacturer and model number.

IF not go to Wireless Configuration

If the router needs to be reset (because of an unknown password) do you know the proper settings to reconfigure the router? If not or even if unsure please provide your Internet Service Provider's name so we can get accurate instructions before proceeding any further on this password issue.

Wireless Configuration

Is your issue with the passphrase/password for a wireless adapter to access a secured wireless network using either WEP or WAP encryption?

Do you have another wireless computer that works? -- you may be able to find the passphrase in the configuration of that machine's wireless adapter avoiding the need to have the administrators password for the router for the time being.

First have you assured through the documentation that the default address for the configuration is Second some routers require a secure connection to get to the configuration such as Third you can check to see if someone changed the gateway address by using the Command Prompt or the DOS Prompt and typing ipconfig and pressing enter. Look for the default gateway address it will probably be 192.168.?.? if it was changed and the 192.168.? part will match the IP Address assigned to the machine. If you still cannot get access to the configuration AND YOU UNDERSTAND HOW TO COMPLETELY CONFIGURE YOUR ROUTER; check out the users guide for instructions for resetting the router's contents -- this will WIPE OUT THE ENTIRE CONFIGURATION IN YOUR ROUTER and reset the routers configuration to the factory defaults. THIS COULD WIPE OUT USERID AND PASSWORD SETTINGS THAT ALLOW THE ROUTER TO ACCESS THE INTERNET. Only consider reset on the router if you fully understand what you are doing and how to reconfigure the router appropriately.
