Hello, the same place you changed the SSID has a number of different options including username and password. You can also set you Security(WEP or WPA). Also turn on or off the firewall, if it supports one. If you didn't change the address it should be 192.168.1.1 Default password and username is usually "admin" for both or just password. Hope this helps.

Belkin passwords


Please be more specific. Are you referring to the password to manage the router, or the pass-phrase/security key to authenticate with your wireless network/SSID?

SSID


Hi John,

The SSID is either broadcast or sheilded, depending on whether the owner wanted to broadcast it or not. Many people often choose to shield the SSID as another layer of security for their WiFi. The SSID is needed to recieve a prompt for security keys, so without the SSID, you're stuck to look for another WiFi signal.

If the WiFi router is accessible to you - that is; you own it - you can access the router's setup page via any computer that is either 1) physically connect via network cable, or 2) connected via WiFi. You will need to point your browser at the router's setup page - often 192.168.0.1 is used. You will be prompted for a username and password. You didn't provide the model number of your router, but according to this Arris Router manual I found, if it was not changed from the factory default by the user - it will be "admin" and "password" (without the quotes). From here, you would go to the wireless settings to read or change the SSID and security settings.

If the router refuses the admin / password credentials, that means that it has been changed from the factory defaults. It will not be possible to view the router settings, but you can return the router back to the factory settings by locating the reset button on the device itself. With a paper clip or ball point pen, press and hold the reset button for several seconds, then release. This will remove all customizations to the router settings.

Using the manual as a guide, you can edit any of the settings as desired, but you should at least change the login password to something unique and set the WiFi security to WPA with a security key (word) that does not appear in the dictionary. Use WEP security *only* if there is no other type offered, as WEP security can be hack in under a minute or two by computer. As you can see, not broadcasting the SSID provides an additional layer of security. You can broadcast it is you wish.

Finally, record the the IP address, username, password, SSID, security type and key and attach to the underside of the router. Should you forget the info needed to access it in the future, you'll find everything you need on the label.

I hope this helps & good luck!

Changed password now can"t access router


Your laptop still insists on using the old password that's why it can't connect. Go to Control Panel > Network and Internet > Network and Sharing Center > Manage Wireless Networks. Select your router's SSID. Right click on it and change Properties > Security > Show characters. The old password that you forgot should appear. You may then change it to the latest one.

You may also click on the wifi signal icon on the lower right corner of your Taskbar, right click on the router's SSID, select Properties > Security > Show characters to reveal the old password you forgot and change it to the latest one.

Click on the SSID for your wirelessnetwork that you connect to and the Properties window will open. You canchange the Authentication Type to match the type set in your wireless routerand you can also change your password or Network Key to make sure you have itin correctly.

For Windows Vista below:

Click Start/Control Panel/Network and Sharing Center then look to the left ofthe open window and click Manage Wireless Networks. Find the SSID of thenetwork that you connect to and double click it. When the window opensclick the Security tab to change the Security Type (which is theAuthentication), The Encryption Type and the Network Security Key (which is thepassword).

Reset password


The default password for the router's Web Configuration Manager is password. NETGEAR recommends that you change this password to a more secure password.
To change the administrator password: 1. On the main menu, under Maintenance, select Set Password to display the Set Password screen. 2. To change the password, first enter the old password, then enter the new password twice. 3. Click Apply.
Best of luck!

My router is password enable before but no its not,how can i make it passsword enable again?i know my password


Here are some basic steps in setting up your Linksys router

Hope it helps!

Please follow the below instructions to protect your device:

  1. Connect your computer to the router using a network cable, or you can connect to the router through a wireless connection. Note that your wireless card in your computer must be enabled.
  2. Open your Web browser. Enter: http://192.168.1.1 in the address field. This is an internal IP address to access your router. Press the Enter Key.
  3. When the password request appears leave the user name field blank. By default, the password is admin.
  4. After logging in, you are not required to change the default administrative password. However, it's fully recommended that you change the default password by clicking on the Administration tab and Management. Enter a new password in the Password field and again in the Re-enter field to confirm.
  5. I recommend setting the Remote Management item as Disable. It will be another layer of security for your router. With this configuration you can only access your router for programming using a standard Ethernet network cabling.
  6. To save the new password, click Save Settings at the bottom of the page.
  7. To avoid intruders accessing your wireless connection we'll start to work with the Wireless tab.
  8. In the Basic Wireless Settings enter a name for your wireless network connection in the Wireless Network Name (SSID). Set the Wireless Broadcast to Disable.

    When wireless clients survey the local area for wireless networks to associate with, they will detect the SSID broadcast by the Router if the Broadcast is enabled. Do not broadcast the Router SSID. It must be Disabled.

    Note that your SSID should be set following similar rules for setting a password, e.g. at least 8 characters, a combination of letters, numbers and non consecutive characters.

    Disabling the SSID broadcast is not a strong security setting, but it can help prevent intruders from sharing your WLAN. Remember to save your settings.

I need to secure my router. I had payed to have it set up when I was getting my computer fixed only to find out that my son could log on with out a password. How can I fix this.


To set up wireless router security, there are four main steps, which are the same for most routers. These are:

1) Login to your router, using a wired connection
2) Change the router login password
3) Change the network name (SSID)
4) Enable WPA encryption.
************DETAILS************
1) Login to your router, using a wired (Ethernet) connection.
Make sure you have a cabled connection to your router. Then open a web browser, and type the router’s IP address into the address bar. For example, this is http://192.168.0.1
If you log in successfully, you should then see the router configuration screen.
2) Change the router login password.
To change the router password, find a menu option such as Setup, Tools, Administration, Basic Settings, Management, or Utilities.
Set and confirm a new login password. Click ‘Save/Apply’ when finished.
3) Change the SSID (network name):
The SSID or Network Name is the name you see when you are looking for an ‘available wireless network’.
To access this setting, find a menu option such as Wireless, Wireless Security, Security, or perhaps Advanced Settings.
Change the SSID from the default, to anything you like. It is case sensitive, and you can use up to 32 letters – but do not use something that could identify you, or your location. Click ‘Save’ or ‘Apply’ when finished.
4) Enable WPA encryption
Find the Wireless Security or Wireless Encryption Options section - often in the same section as the SSID (eg for Netgear – it’s still in Wireless Settings).
You may have a number of encryption options. Select WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK (good choices to start with).
You then need to enter a network key. The box to enter this may be labelled Network Key: it may also be labelled WPA-PSK, WPA Shared Key, PSK, Security key, Passphrase, Pre-shared key, Authentication key .
Note down your network key carefully. You will need this to connect wirelessly. Click ‘Apply/Save’ when finished.
That's it - you have done enough to secure your network, and can close the screen.
