Resetting the router will allow you to set it up to your preferences.

Simply locate the Reset button found on the back of the device and hold it in for a period of 5-10 seconds until you see all the lights on the device light up.


This resets all the settings to default, upon which your wireless will be open, and you can set it up from there. I highly suggest that you configure your security settings after this reset.

Open routers are open cells for their owners, and innocent people don't belong in jail.


Let us know.
Good luck.

Ok....
it seems that you are tring to connect to someone elses secured network which means you will not be able to connect to this wireless network as it has security enabled in it and the passphrase is know to the person who has setup this network....what i can suggest is that you can try connecting to unsecured networks if it is available...if there is no networks unsecured networks available then you will not be able to connect to the internet wirelessly..

I need to change the network name and password


Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.

If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router: Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings. if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings
Hope this helps don

Cant connect laptop to router


The passphrase can be seen on the router's Admin page or its usually called router's Setup Page. You can open the router's setup page using your Internet Explorer. First you must your default gateway address. Connect your computer wired to the router or you can use a computer that is hardwired to the router to check the Default Gateway by going to Command Prompt then type IPCONFIG. If you see the Default Gateway, that's the address that you need to type on your Internet Explorer like http://192.168.1.1. If you have the router's setup page opened, you can see the passphrase on Wireless tab or Wireles Security Mode

Security key/ passphrase


The easiest workaround for this is to connect your laptop to the D-Link
with an ethernet cable.

Make sure your laptop IP address is configured for the same subnet
(example: 192.168.0.9)
Open your browser and go to http://192.168.0.1

Default username: user
Default password: (blank)

(This is of course assuming that you did not change your
default username/password)

Once you're in, change the passphrase to anything you want.
