I had this same problem, I hope my solution doesn't double post.

Go to your router settings - do this by typing in the address to your router into the address bar of your internet browser (you may have to do this on a computer that is connected to the internet). For example I have a dynex router the address is 192.168.2.1. Google your router brand and you should be able to find your address. Once you do this, go to the left side of the screen and find a category entitled "Wi-Fi Protection Setup." Click on this and disable this. Once you do this you should be able to surf the net wi-fi style.

Dell initially told me I needed to back up my computer and reinstall windows xp. I said to hell with that and figured it out myself. Oh they also wanted me to call Dell on Call which I'm sure costs money. Any other problems let me know if this doesn't work for you.

All newer Linksys routers have a Device Ownership Password or "PIN" number encoded in the device for security reasons. The PIN number is on the bottom of the router itself; also encryption is probably enabled by default as well. You would be best served to run teh setup software CD that came with the router as it will step you through everything, including changing or removing encrytpion.

There are a couple of questions I could ask regarding your wireless set-up, but first let me answer the easier of your two questions:

A device ownership password is basically an administration password that is usually pre-configured by the product's manufacturer. For this reason, it would be very helpful to know more about the wireless device you are attempting to connect to to use for your internet connection.

Understanding that, however, leads me to believe that the prompt that you are receiving for a device ownership password is not required to connect to the internet, merely to access your wireless device's settings.

Again, the password it is requesting is only used to configure your wireless access point, not connect to the internet through it. If you could post additional information that would be very much appreciated.

Having a problem pairing my iPhone 6 to my Tx-sr333 receiver. Iphone just grinds and can't find Bluetooth.


Hi Don,

Pairing is necessary when using the Bluetooth-enabled

device for the first time. Before starting the procedure, learn

how to enable the Bluetooth setting function and to connect

with other devices on the Bluetooth-enabled device.

1. Press BLUETOOTH on the remote controller.

The unit enters the pairing mode and the BLUETOOTH

indicator starts flashing.

2. While the BLUETOOTH indicator is flashing,

complete connection on the Bluetooth-enabled

device in the nearby area within about 2 minutes.

If the name of this unit is displayed on the Bluetoothenabled

device's display, select this unit. Paring will end

after a short time.

???? If a password is requested, enter "0000".

???? When connecting the unit to any other Bluetoothenabled

device, start pairing by pressing and holding

BLUETOOTH until the BLUETOOTH indicator starts

flashing. This unit can store the data of up to ten
paired devices, Thanks, JT

I cannot findout what my Network Key is to establish a connection with my security-enabled router. I had to switch back to a LAN to access the internet.


Hi there,

If you have another wireless device that connects to your router you can find out what your password is by installing a little application at this link:

http://download.cnet.com/WirelessKeyView/3000-2092_4-10614187.html?tag=mncol

If you don't have another wireless device that connects to it then you are better off just resetting your router to factory settings and then putting in a new password. Usually there is a small button that can be pressed with a paperclip at the back of the routers. If you press and hold it for about 30 seconds it should reset it to factory defaults.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

Hi i have a d-link dwl-g700ap and i cant acces the wifi from my garmin-asus a50 nuvifone , i know its not the phone because i can connect on everyother network . please help


Go to your management software inside the access point. Default IP address is 192.168.0.50. If you changed it, go to that address with a browser. Default login with "Admin" without a password. If you set up a different administrator id and password then login with those credentials.

Go to the "Advanced" tab. The setting on the MAC address settings are important here. Hopefully you know how to get the MAC address of the phone. I don' have the same phone so I can't tell you how to get it. Ensure that you have entered in the phone's MAC address and any other devices that you connect wirelessly to. If you have registered the MAC address under the second radio button or you have the first radio button clicked, you have a WEP or other password issue. Many public access point don't filter any MAC address and don't require passwords. When setting up at home, you do have to at least these up.

Hope this helps.

I have an I4 phone. The only wifi I can connect to is Linksys. I have other networks available but don't know codes to join with. What to do?


Hi there!

It is possible that the Linksys wireless doesn't have any password/WEP key to connect that is why your phone can connect to it. You can't the other networks available if you don't have the password/WEP key. It has password enabled to prevent unauthorize connection to the wireless. I suggest you subscribe to your own wireless connection so you don't need to worry about connecting to any wireless network available.

I am not sure if this will work on your model of switch but I had the same problem with an AT-9410GB Switch and I called Allied Telesyn with the switch MAC address and they gave me the backdoor password.

You must have the MAC address of the switch, they will need it to find the backdoor password because not all Allied Telesyn switches have the same password or this option to begin with.
