Re: password

Set up wireless encryption (WEP) to ensure that no one can intercept your wireless transmission... and MAC filtering to isolate your wireless network to only allow your laptop to connect wirelessly.

It is possible that there are restrictions on your wireless router, do you remember setting up a password? Anyway, to completely remove any restrictions from wireless connections, just reset your router. To do that you need to do the following:

•Unplug all LAN cables from the router.

•Unplug the router power cord connector from the back of the device.

•Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.

•Continue to hold the reset button in for at least 15 seconds after inserting the power cord, then release it. After about 10-25 seconds the router will boot and it will be set back to the original factory default settings.

By default the password on the router is left blank, and the default IP address is

I hope this will solve your problem.

Change password

Are you asking about your wireless network password or the password to access the router control panels via a web browser?

Your wireless network requires a password if you have your network setup to be secure from outside people using it.
If you have no neighbors within wireless range and don't care about anyone accessing your home network then you can turn off the wireless encryption feature within the router control panels.
Then it won't ask for a password when you connect.

Of course a properly working network card will do that anyway since it remembers the password for you and connects automatically anyway, so I'm not sure why you'd want to remove the password.

I don't recommend removing a wireless password because it's normally stored on your laptop anyway and you only have to enter it once. Then it normally just works from then on. If there is no password then other people can use your Internet connection and slow it down, they could access your router and THEY could put a password on it, or have easier access to get into your computer.

Anyway ...
To access the router and change the settings you need to identify what IP it's on so you can log into it and view the settings. Most routers including this one has a full HTTP menu like a web site that is used to configure it.
While connected to the router (or online) go to the Start Menu, Accessories, and then Command Prompt. Start that and type in IPCONFIG and hit enter. Find the section for your network card or Ethernet, then look for the IP address called "Default Gateway" such as or

Note if you have Ethernet and wireless then there will be 2 sets of numbers. Select the one that you are using at the time for your connection. Then we use that number to access the router.

1. Launch your Web browser. Enter or whatever number you found earlier and put that into the address bar (instead of www.whatever) and press the "Enter" key. If you have the address right the router will respond and ask for the username and password.

2. Type "admin" for the username and leave the password field blank. This is the default for this router unless someone at your house changed it.

3. Click "OK". The router config screen will appear.
Find the wireless settings page and if you want to edit or remove the wireless password you can do it here. If you turn off the wireless security then it will require no password.

I recommend using an Ethernet connection for these adjustments because when you change wireless settings you'll basically hang up your connection each time you make a change and hit save. Ethernet is more likely to stay connected and doesn't care or even use the wireless password.

This is a bit complicated to write down and get every step exactly right but that covers the basics of it. If you get stuck you can refine your question or ask for clarification.

My daughter is here visiting and she tried connecting her laptop to our wireless internet but instead created a new network. It changed the name of our network and is now password secure but noone knows...

there is hope if she did not change the default username and password of the physical router itself. because then you could connect to the router using the default ip address for linksys routers and connecting to it using the default username and password. Then you could probably restore the default network setting from within the router with probably a one button option in there. All depends on the router. Then you can reconfigure all the setting to go back to however you had it before...I won't even get technical with it because you'll probably need to have a tech or someone do it.

But before we get ahead of ourselves make sure that what you need isn't just the WEP key which can normally be found on the router itself. If this is all you need it will save you a ton of headaches.

You'll need to reset your router and then go back through the steps of reprogramming it. The reset button is normally located on the back of the router and pin sized.
