Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank or "1234"
Then you can see configuration page of router.
If you are still not able to access it then press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults then you can access it with above .
Click on WAN settings and set those settings as your internet service provider settings.
Enable DHCP if you want to get ip from router.
Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.

I cant find my password to log into my wireless


You will have to go into the routers setup and chose a new password, If it requires you to enter the old password before it allows you to enter a new one , you can find the tiny reset button on the router and press it to restore it to factory default settings, be advised though, this will reset All the settings for your router, not just the wireless password, so you will have to configure it all again.

You can reset the device to the default factory settings by holding down the reset button for 7 seconds. The default password is blank.

I purchased my wireless G 2.4 GHz broadband router a few years ago, and would like to allow my guests to use my protected network; however I don't know my key. How do I find out what my key is so I can...


Hello ,
Its better you can get into your wifi setting by 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1 and check whether the key is visible in characters, coz in most of the wifi setting it used to be in this type * . So if it appears like that you can dissable your security settings for sometime. And when you get into your wifi setting it may ask for your password , the default one is USER ID: admin Password: password or admin

Need security code for new laptop


Hi there,

I think we were disconnected with the chat session. Well, here is what you do, after you have reset the router, try connecting the laptop again to the network. It should not ask for a password this time. Please let me know. If this solved the problem, please do not forget to click the End Session button to properly close the chat and to accept the solution I provided. Thank you for using FixYa.

Am trying to install a wireless router. When I use installation CD it asks me for broadband user name and password. Have tried a few guesses but no joy and cannot find anything written down. Can you help...


Have you tried to leave it blank; Belkin ships without password - you have to set it yourself once logged on?

If somebody else, like a previous owner, has set a password you have only two options, ask the guy or do a "hard reset" of the router:

Can't get to IP address to fix 323 error on Linksys WRT54G2


If admin password is not working, it might have been changed to something else. Try to type any password that you can think of. If none works, you need to reset the router by pressing the reset button at the back of it for 30 seconds, then unplug the power for 30 seconds, plug it back in then try to access the 192.168.1.1 page again, that should do it for admin as the password, no username.
