By default

username: admin
password: is password

if not...try hard resetting the router, use pin to poke the reset button at the back of the router then follow this steps;

Here are some troubleshooting steps that I suggest you try:

1. Check physical connections.

a. Connect the modem to the Internet port of the router. The Internet “i” LED on the front of the router should light up.
b. Connect the computer to one of the four LAN ports (i.e port 1, 2, 3 or 4) on the back of the router. The corresponding port light where you connected the computer should be lit up.

2. Access the router's web-based utility.

a. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Netscape Navigator.
b. Connect to the router by typing http://routerlogin.com/basicsetting.htm or http://192.168.1.1 in the address field and click Enter or Return key.
c. A window will prompt for a user name and password. By default, the user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

Note: If you were unable to access the router's web-based utility, you may reset the router to restore the settings to factory default.

To reset the router:

a. Please push the reset button at the back of the router and release after 30 seconds.
b. Unplug the power adapter for 10 seconds and then plug it back in.

3. Configure the router.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a cable connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings under Setup tab.
b. Select No for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Scroll down on the center page and look for the Router MAC Address section. Set it to Use computer MAC address and click on the Apply button.

If your Internet Service Provider is using a DSL connection, please follow the steps below:

a. Click on Basic Settings.
b. Select Yes for Does Your Internet Connection Require A Login?.
c. Select Other on the Internet Service Provider drop down box.
d. Enter your ISP's username (username@ISPdomain) and password. Then, click on Apply.

4. Configure the wireless settings.

a. Click on the Wireless Settings under Setup.
b. Change the SSID to any unique name.
c. Scroll down, look for the Security Options settings and select WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy).
d. Set the Authentication type to "Automatic" and the Encryption Strength to "64bit".
e. Leave the Passphrase field blank, select Key 1 and enter a 10-digit number.

Note: The 10-digit number you typed in the key 1 will be the password or network key for the wireless connection.

f. Click Apply button to save the changes.
g. Go to Router Status under Maintenance tab and check if there is an IP address under Internet port. If it's 0.0.0.0, do a power cycle.

5. Power cycle.

a. Power off the modem, router and computers.
b. Turn on the power of the modem first and wait for it to initialize, the lights to stop blinking.
c. Power back the router and the computers. Check if it will be able to get online.

How to secure my home network wifi how to put a password?! it appears that it's Unlocked..


Wireless network passwording is done at the router, in the wireless setup area. Log into your router using the admin userid and password. Go to wireless settings and there you will see the option to set a password for the wireless network. One you set the password and save it, all devices that connect to your network wirelessly will need to be reconnected to the network, using the password you selected to gain access to the network.

I currently have the product below, but is connected to a unsecured network. How do I get it to where the network I am connected to is secured. thanks for your help.


Start your web browser and in the address bar type 192.168.1.1 a window will appear and ask for a username and password. leave the username blank and type ADMIN in the password. This should gain you access to the router settings. Just look at the top tool bar for "WIRELESS". Then click on wireless security. Once there you can change the name of your network ffrom LYNKSYS to a name of your choosing. Also you can set a passcode. For basic security use the WPA personal and TKIP password. You need to choose a "passphrase" and you will have to enter it to connect to the nertwork. make sure to SAVE CHANGES. You can also change the password to gain access to the router (the 192.168.192 part). IF YOU DO make sure you can remember it.

Once all the settings are in place, any device trying to connect to your network will be required to enter the pass phrase EXACTLEY as you entered it in the router settings. You should only have to do it the first time.

Connect an Ethernet cable from the network port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on your router.

Start Internet Explorer.
Access the web-server inside the router: http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1
and set a new password for your wireless network.
