The default admin password for Zyxel is 1234

Instead of getting the WEP key from the router, you can get it from any wireless PC that is connected to it. There may be a [ ] Checkbox that says: "show typing" or "don't hide key".
You can reset to factory default settings; however, it will remove the WEP key. With router powered ON, find the reset "hole" on the router. Push a stylus (straightened-out paperclip) into the reset hole for 30 seconds or until the LED's start their reset dance.

Can't find my wep key or admin password


Hi,

If you have forgotten both you will need to restore your router to factory settings and re-add your internet details ***NOTE*** you will most likely have to contact your ISP for your account details so you can add your net details.

To restore there is a small pin hole on the back of the router with reset below it push and hold for 30secs this will revert your router back to original settings and change your login details to username: admin & password: admin. You will now need to run the setup wizard to setup your router and internet details which will allow you to input a new wep key.

Once done you will need to re-connect each device on your network with new details.

Hope it helps.
Thanks.

Wep key


There is a reset button somewhere on the router. It's little, it's recessed, and you'll need a pencil to press it. After you do, your username will be "admin" and password will be "admin". Be sure you go back in and change it.

Cant get wireless on new netbook


The info you have so far is correct. The WEP is your network's security key. It's just like the key to your front door. If you have it, you can get in. The WEP was set when your network was set up. Usually it's a 5 letter word which when encrypted comes out to 10 letters.
Dial in to your router by typing 192.168.1.1 in your browser(Internet Explorer) window. Enter the user name, "admin" & the password, "password". Go to the router security page and there you will see all the information about your network. At the bootom left of the page is the security WEP information. There are four keys encrypted from the original word. The trick is in knowing which of the 4 keys was used. I guess you'll have to try them one by one. Most usually it's key #1, so its a relief if it is. Write the keys on a piece of paper and logout.
When you boot your netbook, it will look for all available networks in your area. Your router will be broadcasting its SSID (network name). Choose your netswork & click "connect". You will be asked for a WEP and you can now type in the ten letters. The netbook will now go ahead a connect up. If it doesn't, try the next WEP key on your list.

I have lost the password for my LIVEBOX C640 router on orange. I am connecting a new NETBOOK but it keeps asking for the password. My original laptop still operates on the router wireless


If you have forgotten your wireless security password then you need to add new password because it is saved in * and # format so you need to add new code.
You need to configure your router.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It isyour password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Let me know if you need further assistance.

Need to find existing WEP ID, do not want to reset my WEP ID


Flip over your ACTIONTEC and you would see there the default wep key. If you've had it personalized before, you have to open the configuration page of your modem and check for the wep key.

To go to the configuration page, open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. that is the default address for your actiontec. type in your username and password when prompted. the usual default it ADMIN for username and PASSWORD (lowercase) for password. or you could also try ADMIN (uname)-ADMIN(pword).

click on the wireless settings icon and then click on basic security settings. scroll down on the middle of the page and you will see there your wep key.

if you are unable to open the configuration page because you forgot your username and password, you can reset your modem so that it the uname and password will go back to its factory default settings (admin/password). However, if you are using pppoe connection (authentication using username and password to connect to network) you can lose your connection and you would have to configure your router. so be careful not to press the reset button at the back.

Resetting WEP Password on Netgear WGT624


If you hold the reset pin in for more than ten seconds(I always count to 15) it will do a Factory reset...this will set all back to factory specs

Then you can set a new wep as well as an admin password

WEP key


Really depends on your router, if it is linksys (Most common) it's simple.

Connect a computer to a wired connection on the router. Point your browser at http://192.168.1.1/ That should take you to the admin interface of the router. If that doesn't work, check the documentation that came with your router --- it will give you the correct aaa.bbb.ccc.ddd IP address.

If you (or someone else) has not set the password for the admin screen, the default for Linksys (the last I used one) was blank for the username and "admin" for the password, but again, RTFM. BTW, of you set up WEP security but left the admin login default, perhaps someone found your wireless and changed the key for you.

If all else fails, do a hard reset on the router and start over. "Hard reset" is not just a power cycle... there is usually reset button on the bottom or somewhere that requires a stylus (pen, paperclip, etc.) to push it... you usually have to hold it in for 30 seconds or more to cause the hard reset. This will take your router back to factory default settings for everything.

But if the admin pass / name is incorrect try

Account: Admin
Password: Password

Or

Account: Admin
Password: Password

try both with capital start, then all lower case, Hope this helped!
