Set your ip setting to "Obtain an IP address automatically", then plug your ethernet cable to your system, once connected, open a command prompt then type 'ipconfig' (w/o ""). your IP add, subnet mask & default gateway will display. take note, the default gateway is the ip address of your router.

How do i change my wifi password?

You must know the user id and password of the router. Then, using your internet browser, type the IP address into the browser address line. This should bring up the login page of the router. Use the router userid and password to gain access into the router. Once on the router, look for the wireless setup menu. Go into it and locate the wireless password. The option to change the password should be available there. Save the changed password and exit the router setup.

I reset my router and now the internet will not work.

You will need to connect to your router via a cable, then open your internet browser and type in the ip address of the router. You can find this by openeing a command prompt (programs->accesories) and type in ipconfig /all making sure there is a space between the g and the /, then press enter, you are looking for the internet gateway address, it may also be the same as the dns server address. (it will most likely look like 192.168.*.* obviously the stars need to be replaced by numbers relevent to your router, routers are all different so I cant supply those)

when you type this address into your internet browser window it should take you to your routers login page, username and password should have been supplied with the router. Once you have gained entry into the routers setup pages, you will need to put your login details for your internet account. (you should have recieved these from your internet provider when you initially setup the account. This should then allow you to connect to the internet

I have a router i forget everything to it i cant get into it at all cant access the internet or nothing

To access a router on which you forgotten everything, do the following...
1. apply power to the router and connect an ethernet cable from PC to one of the router's LAN ports
2. press the router's reset button (usually located beside its power supply jack) for at least 5 seconds
3. (pressing reset for 5 seconds resets the router to its factory defaults)
4. with factory defaults, you can now use the Setup Wizard on the router's Setup CD-ROM
5. if no Setup CD or to configure advanced settings see router manual about web-based utility
6. open Internet Explorer and enter the router's default IP address (see router manual for address)
7. IE presents a login window for entry of router userid and password (see manual for defaults)
8. once into the router's Basic Setup screen, follow the steps in the router's manual to do the setup.
9. if your ISP requires a registered MAC address, enter it on the clone MAC address screen
10. for better wireless security, change router SSID from its default and enable WEP or WPA

Trying to hook up to different computer and cannot find password can it be changed

If you have never assigned a new password then the following are likely:
User: admin
Pass: password

User: admin
Pass: admin (or blank)

Try these three combination's for default passwords, if you know you changed the password and can't remember it, you can reset your router by holding down the power or reset button until some of the lights flash (could take between 5-30 seconds) to reset the router to factory default in which one of the above configurations will work. However, you will have to re-input any settings from before such as a new password, SSID, and whether to broadcast your SSID, ect. Hope this helps and thank you.

I need the security key for my ZyXel E72 in order to setup my new laptop for home use

  1. Look through the manual for your particular model of router. Contained within should be the IP (Internet protocol) address for your router. Input this address into your Internet browser to access your router's security settings. The address will typically be something like

  2. Enter the default user name and password for the router, which should also be in the instruction manual. If you have lost the manual, you can often obtain an electronic copy online at the manufacturer's website. Most default router passwords are something along the lines of "username: admin," "password: admin." Thus, try inputting "admin" as both the username and the password if you are having trouble locating your manual.

  3. Navigate to the "wireless security" option from the Options menu that will appear in your Internet browser. There you will find the network security code listed under the WEP settings. Write the code down and keep it in a safe place. You can change the code every month if you feel it necessary to prevent people from attaining access to your network through sheer luck and persistence. Default settings are:

  4. IP adddress:

  5. Username : admin

  6. password: 1234

I want to change password for wifi network

Open up an Internet browser window on your computer system. To gain access to the default settings, type in the default IP address of the wireless router in your Internet browser's address bar and press enter. You must refer to the wireless router's documentation or navigate to the manufacturer's website for the correct IP address.

Type the default user name and password in the security dialog box that appears, then press Enter on your keyboard. Because different router manufacturers use different default user names and passwords, refer back to your router's documentation or support webpage for the correct information.

Navigate through the router administration pages to find the wireless router's administrator password settings. Change the default user name and password to a unique set so that possible unauthorized access to your router settings will not take place. Make sure to hit "Save Settings" to complete the change.

Set up your wireless security settings by navigating to the proper administration settings page. By default, wireless routers do not come with a password for connectivity access. Choose the appropriate wireless security level you need and type in a unique user name and password. Save these new settings and log out of the router's administration setup.

Write down the user names and passwords for both network access and the administration setup page. Keep these user names and passwords in a safe place.

Have a great day.

If you happen the forgot the router's password the only way around is to do a hard reset(hold the reset button at the back of the router for 5 to 10 seconds - this will wipe out all your previous settings) on the device but if you just need to change the default password to something different here's how;

Open an Internet browser(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) and enter the Wireless MAXg Router's IP address. The following is the default IP address of the Wireless MAXg Router:

You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.

Go to the Security tab and now you can enter or change the username and password of your US Robotics router, you can also enable wireless security(encryption) like WEP or WPA on the Security tab so that you can properly secure you router against unwanted freeloaders/computers getting wireless access through your router.

Hope this steps would help you settings up your router if you have further questions regarding setup just post a reply.
