Re: How do I password secure a Blitzz wireless router?
You need to log into the wireless router either by a computer that successfully connects wirelessly or by physically connecting with an ethernet cable. Once connected, log into the router by open a web browser (Internet Explorer, MozillaFirefox, Google Chrome, Apple Safari), and typing the router's address (usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1) into the Address (or URL) line. The default usernameand password is usually "admin" & "admin" or "admin" & "password". Once successfully logged in, look for a tab or link that says "Wireless" or "Security". You'll be able to change whether security is enabled or disabled, and the password associated with it. Your security options are WEP or WPA (or WPA-PSK). WPA-PSK is the most secure, but WEP is also an acceptable choice. Select the security option of your choice and either enter text into the passphrase generator or choose your own password and type it into one of the security key text fields. If you use a password that is not a plain english combination of letters and numbers, be sure to write it down so that you can enter it as needed on other wireless devices that need to access your router (ie-pda phones, game consoles, laptops, desktops, etc). Be sure to save changes so that the security settings and password is saved. Let me know how you make out.

If that doesn't work, the reset button will clear the stored login information and reset your router to factory default. Make sure you hold that button for about 15-20 seconds before you release it. After you did this, you can access your router again via the default IP address of 192.168.1.1
The default username and password for your Blitzz router are both "admin".
Don't forget that all your personal settings will be erased as well (wireless security, port forwarding etc.

This is what I did after entering all that information again: I went to each screen and took a snapshot of that window (Press ALT+PrintScreen). This screenshot I copied into a Word document and repeated these steps with all important windows. Now I have a little "manual" in case I have to reset my router again and can't remember my "fancy" settings.
If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.
Normally, routers come with a software wizard that will help you set up your wireless and security settings. If this is not the case, you will need to do it manually. First, you will need the IP of the router. Sometimes it's listed on the bottom of the device, sometimes it's in the manual, sometimes both. If you still cannot find it, try searching for 'defaul ip for XXXXXXX' where x is your router's modle number. Then, go into IE (or Firefox, Chrome, Safari etc.) and type the IP into the address bar. It may ask you for a user name and password. Most times the user name is admin and the password is either admin or there is no password.
Search through the page for wireless security settings. When you find it, use something like WPA for your encryption method, or WEP if you don't have WPA. Then just give the router a pass key that you will remember.
Save the changes, and you're done.
Using your wired pc, open Internet Explorer and type http://192.168.1.1 and enter. You should see a box prompting you for your username and password. Enter your username and password now.
By default both the username and password are admin. Click the Ok button to log in to your router.Click on WIRELESS LAN tab. You should see there the Wireless Network Mode. Change it to your desired mode and also the wireless channel you can change it there. Save the changes you made. That's should do it. Hope that helps!
Hi, If you type www.routerlogin.com into the internet url bar, it'll ask you for the password for your router.. Just leave it blank and you can access the router settings menu and change your password in there. Write it down! Also, if you want you can enable WEP or WPA encryption protection for your wifi connection in there too, and it will prompt you to confirm the password.. Write it down! exit from the browser and it is done. Hope this helps
The minimum security will be WEP, so the wireless receivers on your pc should match the type of encryption.
To give you WEP you select security in the routers menu and choose yourself a mixture of 6 pairs of letters and numbers in any column from 1 to 6 if it gives you 6 options.
Once the letters and numbers are chosen, note down the chosen leters and numbers, and enable wep and restart router.
Now go to your pc's and and go to the software you use for the recievers and select WEP.
You will probably have to tell the programme whether you are on a 'Shared network key' or an 'Open network', depending on your network type (try both until one works if not sure).
It will then ask for the numbers and letters you chose and wrote down, enter these and click apply and restart system.
The pc's should now connect to the router.
Some wireless laptops are unable to recognise WPA type security or similair so WEP is better than nothing.
