Thank you for posting your question.

To set the password for this router the first thing you have to do is access the router's user interface (UI) by opening Internet Explorer. In the address bar you will type 192.168.1.1 and hit Enter. You will be prompted for a username and password. For the username, type admin and leave the password blank (by default there is no password set on your router) and hit Enter. You should now be in the Gateway Wireless Router Setup page. On the left hand side of the screen you will see a tab for Password. Click on that tab and you will be presented with an option of setting a password, which you will have to type in twice. After you have done so, you will now login in using admin for the username and your custom password.

If a password has already been set on this router and no one knows what that password is, you may reset the router to factory condition with just the admin and blank password by physically going to the router and holding in the Reset button until the router does a hard reset (all the lights will turn on at once) and then follow the steps I have stated above.

Requiring password


If your wireless access suddenly requires a password, one of two things has happened...
either you are inadvertently trying to connect to a neighbor's wireless router, or someone has modified your router.
If you are certain it is your router you are attempting to connect to, and it is requiring a password you did not setup, your best bet is to perform a hard reset. There should be a reset button on the back of your router. You should press and hold this button for a few seconds. This will clear all setup information and return the router to factory setup.
In order to setup your router from this point, you will need to connect directly to the router, perform whatever setup options you prefer, and then you should be able to connect wirelessly.
It is highly recommended that you setup a password for wireless access. It is also recommended you change the admin password to prevent someone else from making unwanted modifications.

Need password for wireless roter


If you need the login password for the router's setup page, the default username: admin, password: password.

11_20_2011_11_23_47_am.png
If you need the wireless key or password, you need to access the router's setup page by typinghttp://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1 in the address field of your browser(IE or Chrome). On the login use the default username and password(admin, password).
After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the WEP or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.
11_20_2011_11_27_44_am.jpg
**If by chance you are unable to access the router's login or setup page, you will have to reset the router to factory settings by holding the reset button on the back of the router using a paper clip or a pen for 30 seconds while the router is plugged in to the power outlet. You will then be able to access the router's setup page using the default username and password.

Hope this helps.

How can I configure my router so all of my laptops can connect to the internet? Also, do I need to make any changes to my laptops configuration?


All Linksys routers have a built-in web-based setup page that allows the user to customize settings and set up advanced properties.
NOTE: Before accessing the router's web-based setup page, make sure the router is powered on and the computer is wired to one of the Ethernet ports on the router (1, 2, 3 or 4 ).

3676-001.png 3676-002.png Accessing the Router's Web-Based Setup Page
NOTE:To access the router's web-based setup page using Mac, click here.
Step 1:
Open a web browser such as Internet Explorer.
Step 2:
Go to the Address bar and enter your router's IP address ("192.168.1.1" is the default IP of most Linksys routers) then press [Enter].

NOTE : For WRP400, the default IP address would be "192.168.15.1" and if you place the router behind a primary router with the IP address of "192.168.15.1", then the router will automatically assume a new default IP address, "192.168.16.1".

3676-003.png

NOTE: If the IP address of the router has been changed, type the router's IP address in the Address bar instead.

The router's IP address can be changed by:


1. Running the router's setup CD.

2. Changing it on the router's web-based setup page.
If you forgot the router's IP address you can:



1. Check the router's IP address. For instructions, click here.

2. Press the Reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds.


NOTE
: This procedure will reset your router to factory defaults. Any settings on the router will be erased. The router's IP address will be "192.168.1.1" and the password will be "admin".


Step 3:
A new window will prompt for a User name and Password. Leave the User name field blank then enter your router's password ("admin" is the default password), then click OK.
