You will need to completely reset your router to all of the factory settings. There's a small reset button on the back of the unit.

With a paper clip, push in the reset button and hold it for more than 20 seconds. After this, you will be able to log into your router with the original default username and password (which is probably in the instruction manual).

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.

Cant find wep key


You will need to access the router (via its local web address using a suitable web browser) Once you have provided the login information, surf to the wireless security section and either document the WEP key (if not encrypted) or change it. Understand that changing the WEP key will invalidate any else's access, so be sure to share the change. The WEP key may have to be done in HEX, meaning that it must be done with the numerals 0-9 and ONLY the letters A-F. The ket must also be a specific length, usually 13 or 26 characters depending on the requirements of the router.

I gorgot my wep passpphrase


Hi,

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.1.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as password (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

My wireless connection is unsecured I'm using a Netgear router,what do I do to secure my line?


1. Goto your web browser
2. Type 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 (depending on which Netgear router, just try both).
3. Type "admin" for username and "admin" for password.
4. Click on "Wireless settings" on the left frame of the router setup page.
5. Security options are on the main frame of the page now (under security options). Click on WEP and enter a WEP ID (make it unique).
6. Click on "Apply" and repair your wireless connection. It should prompt you for a WEP key.

Hope this helps,
Bill

I have lost the passphrase and i cant connect to my laptop without it, how can i retrieve it or even reset it/


Hi,

You will need to login to your router and in the Wireless settings look for the WEP or WPA key.

To login to the router you need to go to 192.168.1.1

and then enter the user name as admin
and the password as password.If it doesn't login then try the password as admin

If it still doesn't login then some one changed the default pass to something else so you will need to find out the default pass.Or contact your ISP.If they are unable to help then you will have to reset the router by inserting a paperclip into the tiny hole which is 1mm at the back of your router.Press and hold the paper clip for more 40seconds.

After that all the router settings will be erased and then you will need to setup the internet connection again by logging into the router with default username and password as mentioned above.You will also need details of ip adress given by your ISP.So if you don't have them then contact your ISP and take there help in setting up the internet connection.

If you need a manualfor your router let me know the make and model no.

Thank you.

I WILL NEED TO KNOW YOUR ROUTER'S MODEL/MAKE!

First, go to your router's ip address (depends on each router)Then, login to your router (default username: admin default pass: blank or admin)
There, under tools or network security or similar to that sort, look for your network/WEP key. There, you should be able to find your network key to access the router's network, and even change it if needed.'

I lost my pass phrase and cant hook up my new laptop without it ,my router is working fine on the other computers but I just moved and can't find my notebook with password or phrase in it.....how can I...


Are you saying you cannot access your router page like 192.168.0.1 or are you saying your forget your WEP key for wireless?
If you cannot Access your Router page Then a hard reset in order and there should be a black button somewhere on the back you can press and it should reset to system defaults, the password should be admin
If you dont remember your Wep key, go to your Router Page open it up And turn off the Internet security then Turn it back on while changing the password

New laptop want to connect but forgot key


what you want exactly?password for what? username and password for internet in subscriber? or just WEP for wireless key password?
if you forgot the password for username and password for subscriber....theres an option,i dont know what kind of subscriber do you have in your country...if you forgot the username and passowrd you can ask in the subscriber.
regarding in the WEP password for wireless,it doesnt matter,try this..

username:admin
password:admin
and you can see the configuration,check the wireless settings for WEP...
