Forgot the WPA log-in


To connect your computer to a wireless router, you click the Refresh network list, then Choose your wireless network and then click Connect to your secured Wireless Network, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connect into your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is configured in the Wireless settings in the Router. The Passphrase is an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

I need to set up secure access for 3 computers, HOW?


if your connecting all your computers wirelessly then you can setup encryption for your wireless network.
login to your router from a browser. go to 192.168.1.1
click on wireless
click on wireless security
set security mode to wpa2/wpa mix mode.
set the passphase. this will be the password you required to authenticate to your wireless network.
click save settings.
all wireless devices will need to be reconfigured to the new passphase/password in order to use your secured wireless network.

Cant find PIN


if you dont know the pin you can put the CD in that came with your router.
if you lost it or dont have the CD then you can just setup the router manually by using your browset to http://192.168.1.1
login. the default login/pass is blank/admin
then go to wireless and choose manual.
this will let you set the SSID or name of your wireless network.
then you go to wireless security and choose WPA-personal
type in a passphase for your wireless password.
you will need to configure all your wireless devices to the new SSID wireless network you created and use the passphase you created to join the secured network.

When i log on to internet my wirelss router asks for a passphase i did not set upthe router how do i find out or reset passphase


The passphrase is a way of setting up the encryption code in the wireless router. This is used to protect your wireless router from unauthorized access.
The passphrase is configured in the router wireless configuration and this configuration is applied to the wireless card in the laptop/computer to allow the laptop/computer to connect to the wireless router.
Please click on this link and follow my instruction to configure your wireless router and wireless card in the laptop/computer :-

Forgot passphrase


Are you looking for the wireless network key or password ?
Is there any computer online using the router.
If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router.
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.
router set up page is the page where you can check all the router settings.
You will find the wireless network key or password on the set up page of the router.

I forgot my passphrase and when I try the manage wireless page, "admin" does not work. On the systems page it says admin is not recognized. I do not want to reset my home network. /what do I do?


well theres many ways to fix this. form teh info you have provided i am assuming by passphrase you mean the key that allows you to connect to your wireless network. no passphrase has a default set to admin. the only default hing with routers that is set to admin is there setup page the first ime you loginto it. yoru passphrase was setup by you or someone else and that is unique to you. two ways of resetting it is logging into the router using you web browser while plugged directly into yoru router or hold the reset button on the router and that brings your router to the default factory settings.
