This is because of the fact that your routers page was not logged out last time and now it shows duplicate administrator.
to remove this error please turn the power of your router off from at least 1 min and then turn it back on
Now open the webpage
and it will work


Thnx and i hope this helps

How do I put a password on my wi fi signal

Figure out what the IP address of your router is and type it into your browser's URL field. If you don't know what the IP address is, connect your computer to the router and do the following. Hopefully you have a windows machine you can connect.

1. Start -> Control Panel
2. Go to "Network Connections" (or i the new XP Category View it's "Network and Internet Connections" and then "Network Connections"
3. Find your active connection - most likely "Local Area Connection" or "Wireless Network Connection"
4. Right click on the connection and choose "Status"
5. Go to the "Support" Tab.
6. Look at the Default Gateway entry, this is in most cases the IP address to your router. (Pretty good chance it'll be something like 192.168.x.x)

Once you know your router's IP address, type it into your internet browser's address field. Most likely your router will prompt you for a username & password - refer to your router's manual for the correct combination. Try using "password" or "administrator" for the password if you don't know (yes, often those really are the default passwords) - the username will often be blank or "admin" or "administrator". As I said, check the docs that came with the router or check the manufacturer's website.

Then navigate to the security settings, choose a security type(WPA 2 is the most secure, WEP is easily bruteforced by someone who knows what they are doing), and choose a passcode. Write this down, do not forget it. If you forget it.

When you added the WPS encryption ket to your wireless router, this secures your wireless network from unauthorized access to you wireless network.
To allow your wireless computers and wireless printer to communicate with your wireless network the wireless cards in the computers and printer needs to be configured with the WPA encryption settings that you configured in the wireless router.

Dear Sir / Madam, I have just recently installed a DIR-615N wireless router in my home and am delighted with the performance. My only concern is that I have no security to outsiders accessing this device...

You need to limit your number of connection by browsing your router in explorer. In order to do that simply enter or whatever is the IP of your router and enter admin name and password out there and go to settings limit connections and there you can limit the connections to the number of connections you make with the router. In case you need other options kindly let me know.

Some sites have suddenly been blocked

If your internet connection is still working fine, then it is not a connection issue. Try visiting other sites to prove this. Otherwise, it is a website security issue banning your IP due to violating their security protocol. You can email their site admin then. Regards!

Problems with my Belkin N1 router since we have 1 PC on Vista

to solve this problem you need to set up static IPs on your LAN clients. Whether your SIP provides you with a static IP or not makes no diffrence you can still assign one to each machine on your network and that should solve the problem.

Do you have the administrator password for the router?

If yes,
  • Browse to on any machine connected to the wireless network. Or using a direct cable connection to the router.
  • Under the Wireless tab click on Wireless Security.
  • There you will find your shared key in plain text
If you do not have the administrator password for the router. Check any machine that already is connected to the wireless network. Check the connection settings and find the shared key. Usually there is a checkbox to show the key in plain text.

If that is not possible, you will need to reset your router and reconfigure everything from the beginning.
