    lots of default codes are....for user name.."admin", and for password..try "password"

    Can you tell us what brand/model router you have? Most manufacturer's have a default username/password. Have you tried username: admin password: admin? Or username: and password: admin

Usually the username is the router model and the password is the serial number. Have you put the make and model of the router on your request, I could determine how your manufacturer does.

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 forgot the username and password of my dir-600 2.03 ver


Use the reset button on the back of the router. Hold the button down until the router resets and then re setup the router. You may need to unplug the router from the LAN and wall. Hold the reset button down and plug the power cord back in. Continue holding the reset button and let go after a few seconds. Plug the internet cord back in and re setup. inlutero.jpg

Hi,

If the user name and password doesn't seem to work for you. Press and hold the red reset button on the back of the router for about 5 seconds. This will set it back to the factory defaults, were the blank user name and admin password will work for you. Once you accomplish that, you'll be able to setup your secure connection.

Good Luck,

and don't forget to leave a rating.

Thanks

Password protection for my linksys wireless router


you need to get into the routers settings and look in the menu for security and select atleast WEP security and either you type a password in to reveal a 8 digit code or type in your own mixture of numbers and letters, which will then have to be entered into each pc when they try to connect. You can also look in the SSID and remove the name or dissable SSID so as your network will not appear on anybody elses wireless searches.
