Connect a LAN cable from your computer to the LAN port on the wireless router.
Open a browser and enter the router's configuration URL.
The Linksys configuration URL is
http://192.168.1.1
and the default login = admin
the default password = admin

If you press and hold the button o the back of the router that says reset for 30 seconds, the router will restore factory defaults. Then, your routers password will be reset to "admin"

Greetings!

I am presuming that the address you are using, 192.168.1.1 is the address from the user manual. This may not be the address that is actually assigned to your router however.

The Linksys Router can be configured in one of two ways, either with a static IP Address or by DHCP, a service that automatically assigns an IP from a DHCP Server on your network.

An easy way to test this is to go to a PC on your network that you know is functional and uses the Linksys Router as its network access point and open a command prompt from the start menu (start/accessories/command prompt).

At the command prompt type in tracert www.fixya.com and hit enter. The first address that you see in the traceroute is the IP address of the Linksys Router.

Write this down IP down and then plug it into your web browser. A login prompt window will appear on the screen. Do NOT enter a login name in this prompt - the default for admin is nothing. Simply input the admin password and the web browser will open to the admin page on the router.

As you are configuring a new network security password and protocol be aware of a few things:

1. WEP and WPA are two types of security used on these routers. Of the two, WPA is the more secure, however there may be devices and or clients on your network that do not support WPA. Prior to selecting WPA verify that there are no devices that cannot use that standard.

2. If you are adding a new security profils (password) and retaining the existing login passwords (keys) then your network will continue to function as it has, however if you delete the existing keys (passwords) then you will need to go to each computer/device on the network and update each with the new login information.

Once you have decided upon the security protocol you intend to use (WEP or WPA) you must then do the following:

1. On the router admin page click WIRELESS and then WIRELESS SECURITY.

2. For WEP you will set the Encryption Size and then enter a passphrase. The router will generate a key in hex and you will need to write down this key and provide it to the users on your network. If you change the passphrase later the key will also change and you will need to repeat the above.

3. For WPA, you set the encryption type and then enter a passphrase. Provide this passphrase to the users as that is how they will authenticate using WPA.

SOURCE: setting passwords on dell truemobile wireless router

Hello, The default address for the dell truemobile 1184 is 192.168.2.1 If you have changed it and forgot, unplug the router (elec) for 5 seconds. This will reset it to default. The default SSID is "wireless". If a user ID and/or password is asked for enter "admin". Here you can change settings, enable broadcast, change SSID, enable WEP or WPA. Hope this helps.

Need password for 2wire271 for ebook reader. Thanks


Contact the ISP (Internet Service Provider) who provided the 2WIRE router to you. They will tell you the "default" password, and will tell you how to "configure" your wireless network to be "secure".
At that time, you will set a password.

Need to set a password for my blitzz wireless router


Hi,
If you type www.routerlogin.com into the internet url bar, it'll ask you for the password for your router.. Just leave it blank and you can access the router settings menu and change your password in there. Write it down! Also, if you want you can enable WEP or WPA encryption protection for your wifi connection in there too, and it will prompt you to confirm the password.. Write it down!
exit from the browser and it is done.
Hope this helps
