Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

or
Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

Cant access the wireless internet


Network Key (WEP, WPA, WPA2 Encryption key)To connectyour computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh networklist, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connectto your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Keybefore allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This NetworkKey is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used toconfigure the Wireless Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way tosetup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_addressFor information on securing your wireless network,configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in thelaptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :-http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Interent-Wireless


You can get wireless internet as long as you connect to a wireless router/Access point. If you have Internet, you would need to get a wireless router in order to use your internet wirelessly.

You might have an anti-virus or firewall program installed on this laptop that is blocking your access. Norton Internet Security and TrendMicro PC-cillin are notorious for creating connectivity problems if they are not properly configured.

Do I have to lock my D-link router connected via Ethernet cable? If so, how do I find the router on my PC?


Ya you should lock it with password .. bcoz.. if you will not lock it other might access it and it may harm you in some way.. they might access your internet resources , or data .. or anything they can do with your network settings with that router...

Connect to your router with your browser. then you will find a wireless security tab over there... click on that tab and you will find that the security features are disabled.

You should have several options when it comes to the type of security that you can choose. I prefer WPA, it allows you to simply enter a password to access your wireless network. This password can of course be saved in your wireless settings so there is no need to enter it but one time.

Simply enter your password in the password box and hit save. Your wireless network is now secure. Distribute the password to anyone that is allowed access to your wireless network.

set your laptop firewall if you are using windows xp, in this case there would be an increase security, and no one can access your file unless it is shared in the network, if you have a shared folder or documents right click the folder and properties and set the security there to allow no one to access the file except for the person you nominated to access you folder. Windows XP firewall can set your security in the way it is protecting your files.

I am using a Linksys Wireless -G Router 2.4 GHz. While I can access AOL it is with an unsecured connection. How can I change this to a secure connection?


Hello Aberlin746,

The most secure way to connect to the Internet would be to connect to your router via a wired connection rather than wirelessly. Wireless security is pretty easy to defeat.

That's not always an option or convenient though so, beefing up your wireless security and using a firewall (software) would be in order.

Linksys, as it happens, has tutorials on networking security. You can find them HERE.

You'll need to know how to configure your router as well (in order to implement the suggestions Linksys offers).

So, please, go HERE and choose your router's model number. You'll then be taken to a page where you will have access to downloads, FAQs and manual(s) for your router.

W/ respect to a software firewall, I've used Comodo Personal Firewall for years.
(A) It's **free**
(B) It is **very** effective
(C) It isn't a resource hog (it doesn't bog down your system) like so many firewall and antivirus products available from major manufacturers today.
(D) When you disable it, it REALLY is disabled. So, if you're having configuration problems, you don't have to uninstall the product to get your Internet access working again. (Unlike w/ firewall products from Zone Labs, Symantec's Norton line, and McAfee).
(E) When it's uninstalled, it REALLY is uninstalled. It doesn't leave a mess in its wake like the major manufacturer's products I've already mentioned.

If you have more questions or comments on this topic, please, do let us know.

you will have to access the router by the ip address.
(192.168.??.??)once you log in, user name blank and password admin. you will have to set up wireless security. there are several ways and each that is selected has a brief tutorial.

Sometimes, people who are gamers or use Ipods, leave the router unsecure but limit the wireless access by mac address or by ip address so only those wireless devices gain access.
