The router should have a reset button on it somewhere. Usually its a pinhole which requires a toothpick or paperclip or something equivalent. If the device does not have this, either post the brand/model here or contact the manufacturer. Some manufacturers have a universal code you can use to bypass the security and reset your password.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

I purchased a new laptop,,and when Itried to connect to the internet wirelessly it recognized my router, but asked for security code. I don,t know what my code is.


if you don't know your security code, then you will need to reset the router (Use the reset button on the back) then you should be able to connect wireless unsecured. from that point you can type the default gateway IP address (192.168.1.1) in the address line of internet explorer, this will open the web interface of the router (Leave username blank, admin for password) then you can re-enable wireless security and pick a new code (I recommend an old 10 digit phone number you can easily remember but hard for others to guess)

How can i retreive the security code to add on to my new laptop?


The question is kind of odd.
RETRIEVE meaning you once had it?
Add like security to your lap top?
I think your asking for how to access a router with security?
Reset your router by pressing the reset button.
This will remove the security.
Connect to the router, access its menu, and add security again.

I am trying to add a laptop to my router. previously we had a geeksquad to it for our first laptop. which alph numeric number is my security code


The alpha numeric code are HEX numbers and this is the encrtption key.
The wireless router is configured with the encryption key and you configure your wireless card in your computer with the router's encryption settings, then other computers with a wireless card cannot access your router wirelessly unless they know the encryption setting. Please click on this link and follow my instructions to secure your wireless router :-

Wireless router pass word


sakoz,

You have to reset your router. There is a small reset button on the back, which you have to hold in for at least 15 to 20 seconds if I remember correctly.

You should be able to then log back into it with the factory preset it came with.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!
