I ADDED A ROUTER ASKING FOR WPA ?????? WHERE CAN I LOCATE THIS #
If your router does not have the default password on the back/bottom (usually located on a serial sticker), then the next easiest thing to do is, assuming that you have a patch/straight-through rj45(ethernet) cable, like one that you may have used to connect your modem to your computer, and plug one end into your NIC card, and the other into an ethernet port on your router. After you do this, use your computer's internet browser to get on the router's configuration page. To do this, go to your address bar and type in your router's IP Address, which, if using a linksys, is 192.168.1.1 by default (another way to find it is to go to command prompt on your computer, and type in the command "ipconfig" and looking at the default gateway). After entering the router's IP address, a window should pop up asking for a username and password, which, once again by default, are "admin", "admin", or "admin", "password". This should bring you to the configuration page for the router. From here, look for wireless security, and under that header, you should find your WPA settings and passkey. Change it to your liking, and when finished MAKE SURE TO CLICK SAVE SETTINGS AT THE BOTTOM OF THE PAGE OR THEY WILL NOT SAVE!!!
