Question about Computers & Internet
Hi please help.
i had my new network set up buy a local company some months and everthing worked fine. my system comprises of the above product and
a desktop machine (xp) laptop (vista) a print server and printer
now the problem is: the desktop shutdown early last week and hasnt started again since until tonight after i reinstalled xp now after losing everything including the network settings. i seem to have misplaced the network key/code is there any way i can retrieve this from the laptop on vista that is still configured to the network? as i am not very technically minded please be gentle with me if giving any instructions .
regards keith tate firstname.lastname@example.org
Is this a wireless network?
are you trying to retrieve SECURITY codes, or just basic network settings?
your best bet is probably to log into the router, from the vista laptop, rather than looking at the settings the vista laptop is currently using...
on the vista laptop, open a webbrowser, and type in the ip address for your router.
that is PROBABLY 192.168.0.1
the username is PROBABLY admin
the password is PROBABLY "password"
from there, if you click on wireless settings, it should show you all the details you need.
did the people who set this network up for you leave any information about username, password, ip addresses, anything like that?
