login to your router from your computer and change the wireless passkey. if you do not know how to do this then use the manual provided for the product and it will tell you how to connect to the router and change the passkey information under wireless.

If you forgot the password and username for the wireless router itself, there is a button either onthe back or bottom for resetting the router to default settings. This will clear everything stored and change all settings to factory after which the information is in your manual. If you don't have a manual, the manuals can be found easily by searching google.

How do I find my Network Key..or Password


If you forgot or do not know teh network / passkey of your wireless router you have to follow the following procedure to know the password (i am assuming that you have windows)

1. Connect your router directly to your computer (disconnect your cable / DSL internet from the router)
2. Use the Switch ports (ports marked 1 to 4 to connect to your computer / Do not use the internet port or WAN port in your router to connect to the computer)
3. Open command prompt (Start - Run - Type CMD and hit enter
4. Type IPCONFIG and hit enter. (not down the numbers next to Default gateway (it should be in the format 192.168.1.1 etc).
5. Type exit and hit enter
6. Open the internet explorer and type the default gateway you noted and hit enter
7. You should get a small popup asking for username & password - type
admin (username)
password (password) if this does not work (type admin for password also)

if this username and password does not work then you need to reset the router. (Please refer to the manual for this process)

8. if the username & password works you should be able to access the router page, then you need to click on wireless settings on the router page and then know or change your wireless passkey.

Please reply to the post if you need further assistance.

We dont know the sercuity code?


When you try to connect to a wireless network, it can be your router or can be any wireless network nearby your laptop. So if its your router's network you are unable to connect, you can call your router company, or can go to the router page and change the passkey for the wireless network. By going to the specific option or by running the setup wizard from there again. You can access the router page by ip of the router, i.e. default gateway of the PC.

If its not your router then you cant access it, until and unless you contact the owner of the network to give you the passkey.

If your network is showing multiple network, ensure which one is yours and if your network is working properly.

Passkey


You have to reset the router and re-configure it with the new passkey.

Vista and bluetooth


Passkeys need to match in both the router/access point and the wireless adapter attempting to communicate with it. Whoever configured the router should be able to supply the WEP/WPA passkey / passphrase / network key If your router does not have a passkey ... you are attempting to attach to the wrong wireless router. (if that is the case you should consider assigning WEP/WPA security to your wireless networl (router/accesspoint and adapters)
