Open a web browser like internet explorer or firefox. Enter the ip address of your router in the address bar of your browser. By default the ip address should be set to 192.168.1.1. You should see a box prompting you for your username and password.

Enter your username and password now. By default the username is admin, and the password is 1234. Click the Ok button to log in to your router

Click on wireless setup and you should have options there to change the security settings and setup a WEP key(password).

once you do this.
click on start
click on run
type ncpa.cpl
right-click wireless local area connection
click on view available wireless networks
and connect to your network again using the new password that you have just setup

    If it is not accepting the password try the following as the password:
    1. admin
    2. password
    3. 4321
    4. try your phone number

    if it still does not work then the router would have to be reset.

I dont know ho to change the password on the PK5000Z Wireless Router


I just set up my new ZyXEL PK500Z, so happen to know this answer. In the ZyXEL Qwest Modem Configuration (launch 192.168.0.1), select Wireless Setup, then Wireless Security. Scroll down to Enter Security Key/Passphrase. Unless you changed this, Use Default is selected. If you want to use a password of your own creation, select Use Custom, then enter the password you want. Finish with Apply. Everything connected to your network will be prompted to re-enter the password. Is this what you were after?

My Zyxel P-600 series modem is connected to my desk top. Can i get a wireless connection to my laptop?


Yes you should! Download a manual for your router and read how you start the wireless LAN. I think you login to your router by writing 192.168.1.1 in the URL window in a web browser. Password is 1234 as default. Be sure to encrypt the AP with WPA so that your neighbours dont use your internet conection.

Secutiry issue


You will need to access your router and configure your wireless settings. If you are uncertain about the password/username to access the router 0 then you might find it on label at the backside of the router.

Failing this - the favourite combinations are :

Username admin

Password admin

or sustitute "password" (without the quotes) as the password. If that does not work then you could "google" the question.

I need to secure my 600 series zyxel wireless router


Hi,
Type 192.168.0.1 into your internet address bar. (If this doesn't work try 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.2.1 or whatever your router's ip is)
It will ask you for a username and password. The defaults are:
username: admin password: admin
or
username: admin password: 1234

Now find the Wireless Security section, or suchlike, from the menu and choose either WEP or WPA (stronger encryption) and Enable.

Remember to write down your passphrase somewhere safe!

Securing my wireless network DIR615


the password you entered should prevent people from using yor network unless they have the password. Your network will still show on other peoples settings when they check for networks to connect to, but now you have added a password for your router it should say secured next to it when they try to use your network it will ask them for the password - pin - etc... and if they do not have it then they should not be able to access your router. Why not try to see if one of your neighbours can still access it now you have protected it with a password.
