Easiest thing to do is reset the router to factory defaults and then reconfigure it. There should be a recessed button on the back of the router, press it in with a paperclip or something and hold down for about 20 seconds. If it was a wep key, there are utils like wepcrack that can try and scan your wireless net and crack the key for you but really, that would be more work than just resetting and reconfiguring the device.

Go to wireless security tab and get the security key from there
try this while connecting to the network.

I forgot my user name and password, how can change this, i have internet now but it is unsecured


Hi deltaplus000,


Welcome to Fixya. If you want to setup a password or security on your router you need to access the Wireless Settings Page. To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security on the Dropdown next to Security Mode select either WEP or WPA. Then Personalize your Network Key. The Network Key serves as a password on your network to make it secure. Then Save the settings

If this works dont forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya.

My Router works only if I do not put security password on it.


The router works only if the network is unsecured.
When you secure the wireless network , make sure that you will change the wireless network name also. Because if you change the wireless security and if you keep the same network name then your computer will try to connect to the same network name with the old unsecured settings saved on the computer.
Try to change the SSID ( network name ) and security to WPA, check if that works.
If that doesn't work then I believe you will need to upgrade the FIRMWARE of the router.

Un able to secure my wireless connection


You want to secure the wireless network.
Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable?
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable.
Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page.
Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured

Wep password


If you forgot the WEP of your wireless network, but you think you left the admin password the default, then you can access the router's configuration utility by opening a web browser to http://192.168.0.1 (or 192.168.1.1, depending on your network) and entering the default admin password. You can then go to the wireless security area and enter a new WEP and this time, write it down! :-)

Hope this helps!
