You will need to access yr router's configuration utility with it's IP address - From memory I think this is either 192.168.1.1.or 192.168.1.254. Anyway type one of the IP addresses above into your browser & then Username and Password when the box appears asking for this info Username = admin & Password= password.

Once in the router config, you need to look for Advanced settings or Security or Wireless Security. I am not familiar with this router but then follow the instructions & use WPA security protocol and that should be it Don't forget that you will need to set this up using a wired connection! On completion of steps above - Windows should detect the wireless network

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, Mozilla Firefox, 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.

I have a ZyXel P-330W router that ws given to me a few years ago, today for Christmas we recieved 2 laptops with wireless and need a password to connect them to the router. How can I reset the router to...


Plug directly into the P-330w and open up a browser. In the address bar type in 192.168.1.1 (or 192.168.10.1) and hit enter. The login will be username: admin password: 1234 If those don't work you'll need to reset the router to actually get back into the settings. Once you are logged in click on Wireless on the left side of the screen and then Security. If your encryption is set to WEP, click on the "Set WEP" button to the right. The Key1 box is your wireless password. If the encryption is set to WPA then look down near the bottom of the page where it says WPA Pre-Shared Key. The box next to that is where you can type in the password. Retype a password that is 8 or more characters and click Save at the bottom. Then you should be able to use that password on all your computers when connecting wirelessly.

ZyXEL P-330W wireless router


No it will not work you cannot connect a router to another router wirelessly and it will most likely not be detecting each other, routers are built to transmit internet signals from modems if you have a router and a computer but you do not have your own internet connection that will not work conencting to another router you will need USB Wifi Card transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your friends wireless internet.

but if your friend only has a modem you can lend him your router and get a USB wifi transmitter/reciever to be able to connect to your router that is conencted to your friends modem this will work but will not work if you and you friend will both have a router creating a network.
