Otherwise admin can be used for username and password as a defaulty

you mean the key for wifi? then the solution is to reset the router and set up a new security key! Resetting the router is simple. Just press and hold the reset button for 30 to 60 seconds. The reset button located on the back of the router. Use a pointed object like ball point of a pen!

Where can I find the WEP key on my router? Router security key, router password


Where can I find the WEP key on my router?

If you have a wireless router at home you will need to have a WEP key setup on your router. WEP stands for "Wired Equivalent Privacy" and WEP is a security protocol used to secure wireless networks. When you setup a router for wireless, you normally specify a key(password) so anyone that wishes to join your network has to enter the key. You normally set the WEP key during the router setup phase. You may have set it up and forgot it, or want to reset it. In this article I will go over the steps to find out the WEP key or change it. Your router may use a different security protocol than WEP so don't worry, you still need a KEY in order to access the network.

-On most routers(reference your user manual) you can access the router configuration page by going to the gateway address. The gateway address is the IP address assigned to your router. In a lot of the cases, this address is 192.168.1.1 but depends on your router.
There are a couple of ways to find out this IP address.
-Reference your router manual
-In Microsoft Windows, go to Start > Run and in the run box type "cmd" or "command". A black DOS windows should open. In this window, type "ipconfig /all". Look near the top and you should see a "gateway address" item. This number is the ip address of your router.

Once you know your gateway address, open up your internet browser as if you were going to go to a website. In the URL(address) bar, type the gateway address and hit enter(see image below). A log in box should now show. Again, reference your router manual if you do not know the administrative password. Enter in your password and username.

Once you log in you now have access to the router settings and you can configure what you please. What we are looking for in this article is the wireless security settings. In the wireless security settings page you should be able to see the password for your wireless network and change it. If you see no password go ahead and set one up.
**You can also look around and modify other settings. You can change the wireless security, give your wireless network a name(SSID field) and even with some routers have built in testing features to test the connection at home.
I would recommend that if your router has a default password for admin/configuration access, that you go ahead and create a new one. The default router passwords are usually very simple and this information can be easily found on the internet by anyone. People who set up home networks tend to leave this as is and it is a security risk.


TIPS
-If you can't connect to the router and you know the gateway address, try plugging the computer into the router directly using a Ethernet cable(LAN/patch cable). If you are still having trouble, you can perform a power cycle. Turn off your modem, router and computer. After 10 seconds turn on your modem, after 30 seconds turn on your router and after another 30 seconds turn on your computer. Try to access the router now. This also helps resolve other quirky router issues.
-Make sure all the network cables, phone lines(if using DSL) and coaxial cables(cable/Broadband) are plugged in and secured firmly.

-If you set up a password and username for your routers administrative access and can't remember it, you can reset the username and password back to factory default by performing a factory reset. On most routers this can be achieved by pressing and holding the small reset button on the back of the router for 15 seconds. Please reference router user manual for more information.

I hope this article was informative. Thanks for reading.

Regards,
G33k

How do I change the ssid and reset security


Hi,

Welcome to Fixya. If you need the to change the SSID and Network Key you need to access the Wireless Settings Page.

To access the router page just open a browser then type 192.168.1.1, the Default username is blank and the password is admin. Go to the Wireless Tab select Wireless Security you will see the SSID you can personalize it and under the Security Mode you will see there Network Key or Security Key. The Network Key or Security Key serves as a password or security code on your network to make it secure.

You can also reset the router by pressing the Reset button at the back of it for 15-30 seconds using a Pen and a Paper Clip.

If you have questions please let me know. Thanks for using Fixya.

I have a versalink model 327w that i bought from a friend that is asking me for a security key. when i ask him for the key he says that the router never had a security key so... i was wondering how can i...


Hi!
you should have a RESET button on the back panel of the router. Power on you router, press the RESET button around 20sec. and then release.
Your router should go back to a factory default state and you can set up again the settings in it without the security key and you can generate a new sec.key if you need.

The security key was setup by the person who first installed the router. If you do not have the key, you need to Reset the router. There is a reset button on the back of the router that needs to be held in for more than 15 seconds to reset it to factory specs which removes the security.

Settings will not save. I am trying to save a security key so my network will be secured but the settings will not save.


are you getting any errors?
if not try pressing the pinhole reset on your router usin a small pin or paperclip to reset the router press that reset button for about 5-7 seconds then let go, wait for a couple of second for the modem to reset then go back in and try putting in your security key make sure you do this connected to the router via ethernet cable ^_^ before going wireless.

security keys work depend on the operating system on XP WEP will do, in vista WEP and WPA, in Win7 WPA2 personal.

How do I find security key for Westell 7500 that I forget or reset?


If you reset you have to use the default settings---on most routers the default setting is unsecured.

Reset the router and re-set a new security key.

On the back of your router there is a reset button, hold it down for 3o seconds or so, this will reset the router back to factory settings, the default user name and password would be admin, note that sometimes with the belkin you only need the user name and not the password. Usually you need admin/admin though.

The default IP address to access the router when its reset is 192.168.2.1

Hope that helps
