Hi
You don't mention the make/model of your router, so I must remain fairly general rather than being specific to your kit.
There is usually a "reset" button on most routers that resets them to the original factory settings, including the access username and password. It is often recessed so that a pencil, biro or some such instrument is required to press it. Doing this will wipe out all personal settings that you have saved to the router. The default value for these can usually be found printed on the router or in the manual, for which you may have to go the makers website.
Having done the reset you can then access the router and put your settings back in to make it work as it did. Having done this there is also an option somewhere that allows you to back up the settings to your PC - sounds a good idea !!
You need to make sure that the encryption settings on your router and PC/laptop are the same and that they are recognised by each other
Cheers

Trying to connect to internet cant find wireless & cant find a ethernet place either


The laptop in question does not have a place to plug in the ethernet cable. The laptop is not fitted with wi-fi or bluetooth adapters either. The best and cheapest way to connect this laptop to the internet is using a PCMCIA Card Adapter (type two or three as both are supported.) such as the product supplied by linksys. If yours is similar to the one in the photo then it should include a cable with the required network connection on the end. The "linksys" card you mentioned is no doubt the correct one, but minus the vital cable!

How I reset my router to the old password? And how can I use it without Ethernet cable


Hi
There is a wide range of help from here:-
http://www.skyuser.co.uk/forum/tags/dsl2640s.html
but generally resetting to the old password requires access to the router settings. It is often easier to go back to the original settings by using the reset button.
To use the router without the Ethernet cable, you need to set up the wireless settings within the router and then connect using your computer's wireless connection.
If your computer does not have wireless capability, be it laptop or desktop, then you will not be able to connect to the router without an ethernet cable.
Hope this is helpful, if so would you please register that with Fixya
Cheers

Either that or the ethernet chip on the motherboard is failing - you will need to disable this one from the BIOS and install a simple PCI LAN card in its place

Seems you forgot everything.
1. You could try the default username : admin with password : admin or username : user with password : user
2. if those not working you can reset your ADSL modem to the factory reset by push the "reset to default button" in the back panel, this will bring your modem to the very first time condition. Use the method 1 to login.

Bigpond have sent me my 4 port Wi-Fi modem thompson TG782T Home Network Gateway, now I am sitting here trying to figure out just where everything goes!!! I received a cd rom however I can't get it to work,...


Telephone wall-plate <---- 4-strand telephone-cord ---> telephone-port in modem

AC power from wall-plate to modem.

LAN port #1 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #1.
LAN port #2 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #2.
LAN port #3 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #3.
LAN port #4 <--- Ethernet cable --> network-port on desktop/laptop computer #4.

Configure the router's wireless adapter:
* set a SSID
* set an encryption-level, e.g., 'WPA'
* set a network password

Use the SSID/password to configure your wireless devices (iPod Touch, iPad, XBOX 360, etc.)

I need to connect a D-Link router to my cable modem so that I can use my laptop anywhere in my home


Cable-modem <-- Ethernet cable --> WAN (or "Internet") port on the router

LAN port on router <-- Ethernet cable --> network-port on your laptop

Then, access the "built-in" web-server on the router,
and run the "Wireless Networking Setup" wizard:
* to set an SSID ("network-name")
* an encryption-level (Hint: choose 'wpa')
* a password for your wireless network

Then, disconnect the Ethernet cable from your computer,
and then "wireless available wireless networks".
Select your newly-created network, and connect to it.

Security key/ passphrase


The easiest workaround for this is to connect your laptop to the D-Link
with an ethernet cable.

Make sure your laptop IP address is configured for the same subnet
(example: 192.168.0.9)
Open your browser and go to http://192.168.0.1

Default username: user
Default password: (blank)

(This is of course assuming that you did not change your
default username/password)

Once you're in, change the passphrase to anything you want.

Random wrong passwords


Any router that your connecting to wireless, without a password, does not have wireless security set up on the router.

Any other wireless router that you are trying to connect to that does not allow you to connect wireless, has wireless security set up and that same security must be set up on the wireless device (like laptop or desktop, whatever is not connected via ethernet cable.).

Reply back what you find and I will be glad to help more.

Xbox live on this laptop


I assume you have a crossover ethernet cable.
put the my network places on your desktop.
right click on desktop/properties/desktop/customize desktop/tic
then on the network places icon on desktop right click/properties
right click on wireless and bridge devices
they are now sharing the same ip
be sure and remove /delete bridge when not sharing as the ip will stick forever likely.
that should do it if you need more info /open my computer and hit help and search for internet connection sharing as the firewall may need to be configured.
