How do I find my pass work for wifi


If you are using AT&T as your internet service provider the password might be on the side or bottom of the Modem/Router of theirs. Look for something called Network Key or Network Password/Passphrase.

If it's a wireless router you purchased and installed then you will need a network cable to go from the router into the pc. If you have a desktop it might already have the network cable going from the router to the desktop then use the desktop. You'll need to get into the router's configuration. To do that you'll have to open up internet explorer then type the router's ip address into the browsers address area where you would normally type www. Normally the router's ip address will be something like 192.168.1.1 Once you are into the router the configuration interface will come up. It will ask you for the userid and password. Most times people leave these set as the default that came with it. Once you're in, go to the wireless and wireless security tabs and there you'll see your SSID (the network you connect to) and the Password.

If you don't know the router's ip address, userid or password, you can go to www.google.com and type in the manufacturer's name and support. For example if you have a Netgear Router type "Netgear Support" . On their site for your model number they will have a manual that you find find the info you need. In addition to the 192.168.1.1 type of ip address, Netgear also had something like Netgear.routerlogin

You can also just google "Netgear router ip address" put your router model in between Netgear and router to scale down the search.

You can also do the same thing to find the default userid and password. Just google "Netgear Router userid or Password".

Wn2000rpt refurbished installation


I found this answer online - but I didn't save where - I did add to it a bit after the ** Leah DH(:

Netgear WN2000RPT Setup Instructions

Maybe since I purchased a refurbished Netgear WN2000RPT it didn't come up with setup instructions but once I emailed support they quickly responded with the info below and it worked immediately.

Do this setup and your Netgear WN2000RPT range extender will work:


1. With the help of a paper clip, press the reset button on the back of the extender for 20 seconds (please refer to the label on the bottom of the extender for reset button location). Release the reset button after 20 seconds and turn off the extender. Turn the extender on after few seconds.
2. Connect the extender to the computer with an Ethernet cable. Make sure that there is no connection between your router and the computer either wired or wireless. (I did this part by turning off the antenna to my laptop)**I went to the Network and Sharing Center and on the left click on "Change Adapter Settings" after that right click on your Wireless Network Connection and choose "Disable". Don't forget to re-enable when you're done.
3. Open a browser to start the Smart Wizard. **I had to use Internet Explorer and compatibility mode
4. Please select your Preferred Language and click on continue.
5. Let the Extender detect the list of networks available in the locality.
6. Select your network and note down the security assigned for your network and click on continue
7. Type in the security key for your network,please note that if you have WPA security assigned on your network type the network key in passphrase box and if you have WEP security setup on your network type in the network key in the Key1 box and click on continue. **I've read elsewhere NOT to use WEP security with this extender.

(Read this one carefully)
8. Assign a name for the Extender as per your choice, also make sure that option "Use the Same security and passphrase as those for the existing network" is checked and then click on continue. **Under the step #3 Configure Extender I had to right click and refresh because there was no "continue" button!
9. Let the smart wizard establish the connection. On the next screen Click on the button "I have connected to the extender network" and click on continue.
10. Now click on the finish button to close the page.
11. It should ask you to save the page as bookmark, please save the page for future use.
12. Now open a new browser and check if you are online. (turn your antenna back on)**Re-enable your Wireless Network Connection.
13. You can now unplug the Ethernet cable from the extender and scan for the SSID of the extender and connect to it using the same network key as for you existing router.

Netgear WN2000RPT Setup

The most important part of the Netgear WN2000RPT setup is that you should NOT just plug it in and use the setup wizard. The setup does not make it clear what you should do when you get to the page with Key 1, Key 2, Key 3 & Key 4. If you follow the directions above which I got by emailing to ask about Netgear WN2000RPT setup then it will work the first time without any problem at all. Just read the Netgear WN2000RPT setup instructions above carefully first and then go through the step by step setup instructions slowly, one at a time and be sure you do exactly what it says. If you follow the directions above you will find that you can do your Netgear WN2000RPT setup without any problem at all.

Need More Help?

Need more help? Don't call me! I only know that this worked for me and it was super easy to follow the directions. I don't work for Netgear and I'm not really a techie.

I own a Florida ad agency.

Netgear router reset


You can reset your Netgear router/wireless DG834G router to the factory settings from within the router manager. The reset procedure removes all user-configured settings and returns the router to the original factory settings.

For this reason, only reset the router if you encounter problems that can't be solved with other methods.

Step 1: Check that your Netgear router/wireless DG834G router is properly connected with your system or not. If it is OK, then press reset button on Netgear router for at least 10 seconds. The 'test' light should flash during this process.

Step 2: Now open browser and enter Netgear's IP address into the address bar. Generally, '192.168.0.1' is the Netgear router IP address but you can find specific IP address in Netgear router manual.

Step 3: Now enter your default username and password to log in to router.

Step 4: Click 'Erase' button under the 'Revert to Factory Default Settings'. This process will erase all your previous changes that have been made to the router and restore the configuration settings to factory setting. Don't interrupt the process until the process is finished.

Once the router's 'test' light has stopped blinking and the configuration page you are on has refreshed, the router has been reset.

The password would be the network key. You can find this information on the wireless settings of your router.

How to bypass netgear firewall


you should be able to log into your netgear device and adjust the settings. Open your web browser and point it to http://192.168.1.1 that should get you to the device. The default username is admin and the default password is password.

I had changed some information with the netgear on my computer.


Type in your browser:

http://192.168.0.1

then user= admin
pass = blank (no pass) or the word password

after that you will have access to the settings of your router and see what is going on there.

Netgear FR114P with Netgear DS108 not working


DNeser, Port forwarding and static routes isn?t the route to go down to fix this issue. I have an FR114 in a similar configuration and yours should work as well. -When connecting a hub to a router you should be using a certified, standard Ethernet cable, not a crossover. Make sure it?s certified for at least 100 Mbps. -If you are using port 8 on the hub to connect to the router make sure the Normal/Uplink button is set to Normal. -Are the Link and 100 Mbps LED green on both the hub and router ports you use to connect? If not try a known good cable; if that doesn?t work try different ports. Let us know how things work out and please don?t forget to rate this post.
