Wireless router pass word

Hi,
I'm trying to hook up another laptop computer to my secure wireless system but I forgot my pass word/code. How do I obtain my password?

    I just got a new wireless lap top but when I tried to get to the 100% connection showed on my choices of wireless availability that connection is locked. It should be mine because it shows at 100%. I did not install the router so if there is a password I do not have it. How can I unlock it?



    Thanks

    I pushed the reset button, which elimanated the security. I can now access the system through my new laptop, but the connection is unsecured

Sakoz,

You have to reset your router. There is a small reset button on the back, which you have to hold in for at least 15 to 20 seconds if I remember correctly.

You should be able to then log back into it with the factory preset it came with.

Please let me know if this helps. Good luck!

I dont know the code forgot the code for other computers to get conecct like a ipone for the computer


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you forgot the code or the Network Key (Passphrase) we can access the Wireless Settings Page of the router to obtain the information needed to connect your iphone.

To access the router page you need a working computer that is connected to the router. To access your router you need to use a computer that is connected to it. Open a Browser then type 192.168.0.1 or http://routerlogin.net. The Default username is admin and the password is password. Password is case sensitive.

Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Passphrase. The Network Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure. Network Key is case sensitive.

Don't forget to say thanks. Thanks for using Fixya

I believe my system is being hacked. How do I secure my router if I can't find my software.


Try the following procedure on a computer that's directly connected to one of the router ports with an ethernet cable. This procedure will not work if you're connected wirelessly. Open a web browser, such as Internet Explorer, and type in http:192.168.1.1. A window should pop up asking for a user name and a password. Don't enter a user name and type admin for the password. Hit ok. The router setup screen should come up. Click on the Wireless tab and then the Wireless Security sub-tab. You can set up encryption on your wireless network using this screen. First select the security mode you want to use. I believe WPA gives better security but I've had some trouble using it on older computers. I use WEP. I've been able to get this encryption scheme to work with all of my computers. Next select the type of encryption. I like 126 bit 26 hex digits. Next enter a pass phrase and hit generate. The pass phrase is like a password. It should now generate four 26 character keys made up of various letters and numbers. Write down the first key and make sure you've checked the 1 box for default transmit key. Save your setting and exit. You wireless network is now secure. If you try to connect to it using a wireless device you will be prompted for a security key. Depending on the operating system you're running, you may just be able to enter the pass phrase or you may need to enter the 26 character key you wrote down. You should only have to do this once for each of your wireless computers. After the first time the computer connects to the secured network it should automatically remember the security code after that. I hope this advice helps you out.

I forgot my security code to open my pda


Hi Friend,

Please follow the steps in order to retrieve the security code:

1. Click Start \ Run \ type cmd and hit enter
2. In the black window type ipconfig and hit enter.
3. Note down the default gateway and close this window.
4. Open the web browser and type the default gateway and hit enter.
5. If you have not changed the default password then type admin as password and leave the username blank.
6. In the router setup page click Wireless and then click Wireless Security.
7. Note down the pass phrase or the shared key.

You can use the key to connect the wireless devices with the router.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

I gorgot my wep passpphrase


Hi,

Please follow the steps on a computer connected to the router so as to check the network key:

1. Open the browser(Internet Explorer or Mozilla Firefox).
2. Access the router usually http://192.168.1.1 else try http://www.routerlogin.com
3. Login to the router with the Username as admin and password as password (unless you have changed it).
4. Click on Wireless Settings'(under Setup) from the left menu.
5. Check if 'WEP (Wired Equivalent Privacy)' or 'WPA-PSK (Wi-Fi Protected Access Pre-Shared Key)' is selected under 'Security Options'.
6. If WPA-PSK is selected, copy the code entered in the passphrase.
7. If WEP is selected, copy the code entered in the key that has been checked.

This is the code required for connecting the wireless computer to the routers' wireless network.

In some cases, for security reasons the passphrase might show as asterisks. In this case type a new password and click apply. You will then have to use the same password for all the wireless devices connecting to the network.

I hope this information allows you to resolve this issue.

I can't access my wireless internet, asking for a pass phrase


the D Link router is what is causing the issue - Cut your losses and get a linksys ( netgears are ok so maybe one of those ) but avoid D Link and Belkin equipment as far as wireless or networking goes.

An apple airport extreme ( although a bit more expensive ) are very good.

I forgot my pass code or key I have a new wireless computer and can't get on line. What can I do to solve this problem


Hook up the computer to the router with a LAN cable, and then in an internet window type in 192.168.0.1 that is the adress of your router. It should tell you the password to your wifi if you look on that page

Cant connect to router from laptop


You first should have the wireless security for your network, if you do not have it, you can just plug your computer to the router and access its setup page through http://192.168.1.1 (by default) the click on the "wireless" tab where you will be able to see the security that you need to have your computer connected.
