Question about Computers & Internet
My wireless router is working but I could't add my user name nor a password .How do I fix that?
A router has usually two different passwords - one to access the router configuration, another one for the wireless security.
the first one is used when you access your router via a web page, mostly http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1. The username here can not be changed and varies from router to router ( admin and root are most common.) The password can and should be changed from the default, because otherwise everyone who has access to your network can change and therefore "own" the router.
The second password (also called network key or passphrase) is for the wireless access to the router. (Look for something called WEP-key or WPA.) You can change that after you are logged into your router via web page (usually under a "Wireless Security" tab.
This is how specific I can be without knowing which router you are using, but I think it gives you a general overview. If you would like more details, come back here and leave a post with more details about your router and I'm happy to help.
