Dear Keith118,

I assume you know how to access the the router from your computer,

1. try resetting the router so that it will revert back to its factory settings.
2. this way the default user name will be admin with with a blank password.
3. the manual has an instruction how to reset the unit.

How to Connect a Laptop to a Wireless Router


  • 1 Purchase a wireless router that fits your needs and price range.
  • Follow the router's manual to set up the router and its Internet connection, which will probably require connecting a wired client to the router. Once the wireless router is set up, the wired connection is no longer necessary. However, it's best to leave the wired client connected if it's a separate computer from that on which you're going to set up WiFi. If something goes wrong, you can access the administration interface again.
  • Gather information from the setup process. In order to set up the wireless client, you will need to know the service set identifier (SSID), the Wireless Encryption Protocol (WEP) key and the channel and mode.
  • Boot up the laptop and plug in the WiFi card. This will not be necessary if your laptop has an integrated WiFi card.
  • Install any drivers needed to use the WiFi card. Insert the disc that came with the WiFi card and follow the on-screen installation process. Most discs will trigger a new hardware wizard that makes installation extremely simple.
  • Double-click on the "WiFi Connection" icon. It can be found in the system tray at the bottom of the laptop screen.
  • Click on "Properties."
  • Select the "Wireless Networks" tab.
  • Use the "Add" button at the bottom of the dialog if your WiFi network isn't in the "Avable Networks" section.
  • Click on "Configure" when you see your network's SSID in the "Available Networks."
  • Enter your network's SSID and WEP key.
  • Click on "Start," then choose "Connect To" and "Wireless Network Connection." Your computer should now be able to access the WiFi network. If the WiFi network is connected to the Internet, it should also be able to connect to the Internet.

    1. Choose a laptop or WiFi device that is currently connected to your network. If none of your devices are connected, use an Ethernet cable and connect a computer or laptop directly to your wireless gateway.
    2. Open a web browser and go to the Admin Tool (http://10.0.0.1) - this is the wireless gateway's administration site. The default settings are:
      • Username: admin
      • Password: password (case-sensitive)
        how6361image002.png
      • Note: If you changed your Admin Tool password previously, you will need to use your new login information. If you don't remember your Admin Tool password, you will need to factory reset your wireless gateway. Instructions on how to do this can be found by reviewing the wireless gateway user guides at Wireless Gateway Guides.
    3. On the left navigation menu, select Gateway, then Connection and then Wi-Fi.
      how6361image003.png
    4. Under Private Wi-Fi Network, you'll see the Name (SSID) of your WiFi network. (You may want to write down this information.)
      • Wireless Gateway 1 customers, click EDIT at the right.
      • Wireless Gateway 2 customers, click EDIT for both 2.4 GHz and 5 GHz bands to view the settings for each. ?
        how6361image004.png
    5. Check the box next to Show Network Password. The Network Password (Network Key) will be displayed above. (You may want to write down this information.)
      how6361image005.png
      • On this page, you can also edit your wireless network information, including changing your Network Name (SSID) or Password (Network Key). If you make any changes, remember to click SAVE SETTINGS.
    6. Now that you have your Network Name (SSID) and Password (Network Key), you can connect your WiFi devices to your network.
    7. If you have changed any information, use the new information to reconnect all your WiFi devices to your network.

    Trying to connect a new Dell E6500


    You need to use a computer hardwired to the router to check the wireless settings.

    1. Please open any web browser like Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox.
    2. 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.
    3. A window will prompt for a username and password. The default username is "admin" and the default password is "password".

    Note: Username and password are case sensitive. If it does not take password as the password, you might have changed it when you ran the NETGEAR Setup CD so please try other passwords.

    4. Click the Wireless Settings under Advanced tab.
    5. Check the box under Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable Wireless SSID Broadcast.
    6. Click the Wireless Settings under Setup.
    7. Change Channel (recommended are 1, 6 and 11).
    8. Change the SSID to uniquely identify your network. You might have a similar SSID with your neighbor.

    Note: Do not change the SSID if there are already other wireless computers that can connect to the network.

    Other factors that you may consider when you are not able to view any available wireless network:

    a. Switch for the wireless adapter is turned off
    b. Distance between the wireless router and computer
    c. Possible wireless interferences
