I bought a cisco valet router used and do not know the password , how do I change the password


On the back of the router is a reset button. Press that in for 5-10 seconds. It will reset to factory specs. Once you reset the Valet Hotspot, all of its customized settings (network name, wireless security, etc.) will be erased and the hotspot's IP address will be reverted back to 192.168.1.1, with a default password of admin and no username.

Changing Channels on your Routers


You may try to use different channels on the router to get a better signal. Follow the steps below how to change channels on your router:


1. Connect your computer to the router via an Ethernet cable and open your web browser (normally Internet Explorer, which can be found on your desktop or on the Start Menu in Windows XP).
2. Once your browser opens, input http://192.168.1.1 into the "Address bar".
3. You'll be prompted for a User Name and Password. Leave the User Name blank and type in admin as the password.


Cisco Interface (if the setup page has a Cisco Logo)
Go to Wireless Tab
SSID: (e.g. Vic or your name or last name)
Channel: Any from 1-11
Then hit Save Settings.


Regular Linksys Interface (if the setup page has no Cisco Logo)
Under Setup:
SSID: (e.g. Vic or your name or last name)
Channel: Any from 1-11
Then hit Apply

After doing this you should have a better Wireless signal from your router....

How to Configure your Linksys router with wireless security


Launch your Internet Explorer, Netscape or your Mozilla.

On the Address, Search or URL, type: http://192.168.1.1, then hit Enter/Return. A login screen will appear. Type admin for the password and leave the username blank or empty then hit “OK”.

Note: If it doesn’t take admin as the password you might have changed it when you have ran the RUN ME FIRST CD that came with the router so try other passwords.

If you cannot remember the password, I regret to tell you but, you have to reset the router and, reconfigure it again. Next time, remember the password to avoid unnecessary reset and reconfiguration.

To reset the router to factory default
1] Press and hold the reset button for 30 sec., after that
2] Unplug the power keep holding down the reset button for another 30 sec.
3] Then, plug back the power keep holding down the reset button for 30sec., after that
4] Release the reset button.

Note: Configuring WEP in the router varies depending on the model number and firmware version of your Linksys Router.

Cisco Interface (If your Setup page has a Cisco Logo)

Go to Wireless Tab > Wireless Security > Click the drop down arrow then select WEP:

Regular Linksys Router Interface (If your Setup page has a no Cisco Logo)

Under Setup > Click WEP Key Settings or Edit WEP Key Settings

Using passphrase 64bit
Encryption LEVEL 64bit > type a passphrase > click Generate > copy key1 on a piece of paper (10hex character). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

For manual key entry of 64bit encryption:
Encryption LEVEL: 64bit > Under Key 1 type a 10 digit character from A-F and 0-9.
(e.g.: A0B3F58C9E, 0123456789, ABCDEFABCD). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

Using passphrase 128bit
Encryption LEVEL128bit > type a passphrase > click Generate > copy key1 on a piece of paper (26hex character). Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

For manual key entry of 128bit encryption:

Encryption LEVEL: 128bit > Under Key 1 type a 26 digit character from A-F and 0-9.
(e.g.:0123456789ABCDEF9874561230, 012345678901234567890123456, ABCDEFABCDABCDEFABCDABCDEF).

Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

If you want better security for Vista computers, you may want to select WPA personal (WPA-PSK) under security > set the Algorithm to TKIP and type your personal security code (any code you want, any characters)

Then hit Apply or Save Settings.

Can't get to 192.168.2.1 anymore. why?


You need to find the reset button and press it with a needle head, untill all setting are reset. Power cicle your router and if you are using a modem. Try again. You shouldn't have any orange lights on your router. Now go to your computer, and you will find your wireless rounter name, try to connect to it, and it will ask you for your pin number. You can find the pin in the bottom of the router. After typing the router's pin, it will ask you for the security settings and stuff. Once done, you should be good to go.

Thanks,
