I can't connect to my internet. I don't know the correct password.


You will need to login to your wireless router to get, or set, your network password. A typical default router IP address is 192.168.0.1, but there can be any number of possibilities depending on router type, and network configuration, and who set it up... Some routers will put their default IP Address, and password on a sticker, located somewhere on the router. If this is the case, type the default IP Address into a browser on your computer, and hit enter, or return. A web page should appear asking for login information. User name, and password. Again this information varies... Typically the default user name is "Admin" or "admin" you can also try leaving this field blank, and just entering the password found on the router. In some cases the password is actually "admin" while leaving the user name blank.
If your successful at loging-in, you need to look at your wireless settings, under one of the sub-tabs you should find a password field indicating your network password. This is what should allow you to login to your network with your Roku device.

How to change password to small


Open your preferred internet browser and enter "192.168.1.1" in your web browser's address field.

When login dialog box will appear,leave the user name field empty. Input "admin" in the password field. Click "OK" to log into the router. The blank user name and "admin" password are the default configuration settings for your router.

Click "Security". Type the new password you want to assign to the user account. Enter it again in the "Re-enter to Confirm" field. Click "Apply".

Close your internet browser after you have completed the password change to protect your router from unauthorized access.

How to change wifi name in router


The wifi name you are referring to is called SSID, service set identifier. You can change that by logging onto your routers Web based utility. Open your web browser and type in 192.168.0.1 and it will ask you for a user name and password. If you keep the default user name and password the user name should be admin and the password is blank, meaning there is no password set up. After logging on, click on top tab "Setup" and on the side menu "Wireless". You should be able to change the SSID by typing in a new name in the field "Wireless Network Name". Make sure you save the changes! This should then change the name.

How can i open my belkin router upnp


You will have to log in to the setting of the router. This is accomplished by typing the ip adress of the router usually 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 into a web browser. It will then ask for a user name and password: the default user name and password for belkin routers is: User name: Admin Password: (Leave the Field blank). Then you can enable UPnP in there. UPnP stands for universal plug and play :) Hope this helps. Thanks

I reset the WRT400N password, then entered the default password admin and it does not work


here is the link to the user manual ...if you changed the admin password and cannot get in you will have to reset the router and put all new settings back in

the default user name is : wrt400 or wrt400n
and default password is admin
To access the web-based utility, launch the web browser on
your computer, and enter the Router’s default IP address,
192.168.1.1 or http://wrt400n.com in the Address field.
Then, press Enter.
A password request screen will appear. (Non-Windows XP
users will see a similar screen.) Leave the User name field
blank. The first time you open the web-based utility, use
the default password admin. (You can set a new password
on the Administration > Management screen.) Click OK to
continue.
