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.

How do i set a password


Router's password could mean 2 things. First password for you to open router's configuration page or password for you to connect wireless to your router.

Configuration's password:
-Logon to your router configuration page
-Please to the TOOLS and ADMIN Tab. You there you can change the admin user name and password. If you do not have the user name and password, please check for the default user name and password on the router's manual. If default user name and password won't work reset the router. Press and hold down the reset button or pinhole on the back of the router for 10 seconds. Then re-enter user name and password again. It should work this time.

Wireless Security Password:

-Logon to your router configuration page
-Under SETUP and Wireless Settings tab you will get an option to change the wireless password

I have no internet connection with the router but can surf without the router and only my modem


You need to configure your router WAN settings as your internet service provider.
If your ISP gives you static ip then configure it as static.
If ISP gives user name and password to connect inteernet then configure router as pppoe.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
.
Click on wireless settings enable wireless then WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.If you are able to see password in * or # then you need o add new password but if you are able to read it then note down it then you can connect with it.
If you are not able to access router with above ip and user password then press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router.
Then you can access it with above method.

Let me know if you need further assistance.

it depends on the router you use go to start all programs under accessories look for Run, cick run then in the run window typ CMD then press enter, then in the Dos prompt type IPconfig then press enter it will show the ipaddress and default gateway ofr your router copy the default gateway type it in Interent explorer tha should open a page where your router settings are it will ask for apassword and user name which you must know to access the router settings and be able to get the network key from the router to be able to input in your computers wireless settings to gain acces to the router and wireless internet, Call your internet service provider if you can remeber having a user name and password,

for Edimax routers user name is admin password should be 1234, linksys user name admin password eitheradmin as well or leav it blank, and yeah for further info under the router there should be a sticker with the router default user name and password on it if not on the sticker call your ISP or whoever provided the router to you for the router user name and password ^_^ hope this info will be helpfull to you ^_^

I have a U.S. Robotics USRobotics USR5461 Wireless router


heres the online installation manual http://www.usr.com/support/5461/5461-ug/index.html
see configuration tab - You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.
------------- so if you cannot remember the username and password - you will need to reset to fsactory condition and reset all the settings in the router for it to work with your ISP again
the reset button is on the back - RESET Button: To restore the factory default settings, use a paperclip to press in and hold the RESET button for five to ten seconds. If the RESET button is pressed for less than five seconds, the Wireless MAXg Router will reboot.

Lost my user name and need to add new computer


Are you trying to connect to the wireless network ?
Or your new computer will be connected to router with the cable.
If it is hard wired to the router and the router is working for the other computers then you don't need to change anything on the router.
If you are trying to connect to the wireless network then you should know the wireless settings of the router.
