Someone set a policy on your machine to enforce certain rules about
passwords. Best to ask this person to modify these rules for you.
Alternatively you can run gpedit.msc, then follow this path to change
them yourself: Local Computer Policy / Computer Configuration
/ Windows Settings / Security Settings / Account Policy / Password
Note also this:
- You cannot delete the inbuilt Administrator account.
- Having administrator accounts with a blank password is a big security risk.
I'm assuming you mean the wireless network password, not the configuration page password. I'm also assuming the router is still configured with the defaults:
- open your browser to 192.168.2.1 - press "Log in" - leave the password blank and press "submit" button - on the left panel, under "Wireless" section, select "security" - select WPA-PSK for encryption since its more secure than WEP and others, and set the key you wan to use as wireless password - apply your changes
it may be a good idea to set and administrator password (The log in password) to protect your configuration from being changed by someone else. You can change it under the "Utilities" section.
Enter the User ID. The default factory setting is "admin"
Enter the Password. The default factory setting is "motorola"
Click Control Panel > Device Security
In the Login User ID field, enter your User ID. Create an ID that contains multiple casesensitive characters as well as numbers. It cannot be longer than 64 bytes.
In the Login Password field, enter your Login Password. Create a password that contains multiple case-sensitive characters as well as numbers and symbols like “_ + )”. It cannot be longer than 64 bytes.
Re-enter your Password.
Once the settings have been accepted, click Restart and log back into the Configuration Utility using your new User ID and Password.
Select Wireless > Basic.
Change the SSID to a user-friendly name and click Apply.
Navigate to Wireless > Security.
Select WPA-PSK from the ESS Authentication options.
Select TKIP from Encryption Status options.
Click Apply and then click Restart. Your wireless security configuration is now complete.
WEP is easily hacked by hackers. WPA-PSK with TKIP encryption is the newest, most secure wireless security measures and you can follow these directions to set it up this way.
Hope this helps you out! If so please give me positive rating (4 thumbs up)
