Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

or
Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

Unable to browse with Windows


While having a computer is great, there are times when you are going to have issues. First, make sure you are connected to the internet. You can do it a few different ways, hook another computer to your modem or router. If you have a wireless router, you can also connect to it via your smart phone or ipod. If these work, then you connection is good and it's your computer.
One of the first steps in seeing where windows is broken. Fist we need to ping a website. This allows you to see if your computer can actually see outword to the internet. Click on start, run, and type in "cmd". You will get a small black box. After the "C:>" type in "ping google.com" You want to see if you get 4 out of 4 replys. This means your computer is connect to the internet and it is able to see news.com.
If this works, next, type in the IP address your were given for google, in my case it was 74.125.47.147, in the address bar of internet explorer. This will tell you if you are having an issue with your browser or not. You can also try getting a different web browser, such as Firefox or Chrome, then run Windows updates.
If you are unable to ping, then check your LAN(local are network) by right clicking on My Network Places, and selecting properties. If your LAN shows as disconnected, right click on it and chose enable. Try pinging again. Also, check your firewalls and turn them off.
There are many other things you can try, but this should be a good overview of some starting steps on fixing an issue where you can not browse

Unable to connect to cable network after downloading network drivers


You need to be sure that your network settings are properly set. If you're behind a router, make sure that your computer is in the same network with it. Ping any website like google.com and see the result by entering this command in command prompt: ping google.com. Here is a picture showing what you should see if everything is ok.
12_18_2011_10_22_52_pm.jpg
If your result is something like "Destination host unreachable" or "request timed out" try this command: ping 173.194.66.103.If you have ping with the second command - you should fix your DNS input in Network settings. Usually for DNS server you should use the IP address of your router.If you have ping in both scenarios - you should check Internet Options of your Browser. Make sure you have entered proxy settings if you're using one. Make this initial diagnostic and write about the results so that I could help you.

I will be happy to assist you with this problem.
There should be a small reset on the back of the router. As seen in the picture below.jameshumanit.gif
First, you will need to push this button using a paper clip or a small screwdriver etc. Keep the button pressed for about 15 seconds. This will return your router back to it's like new settings. It will take approximately 1 minute for your router to reset.
Once the router has been reset. You can access the setup information via your web browser by plugging the router into one of your network ports and typing this into your address bar http://192.168.2.1
If you have any further questions, please ask, I will be happy to elaborate.

I need my network key so i can use my new laptop


I'm assuming this is a wireless network key that you need? If so, ask the person who manages the wireless router.

If you own the router, you'll have to connect to it with a cable the first time 'round, and set your laptop's IP to something on the same subnet, like 192.168.1.1, or ..2.1. Enter the router's ip in your browser.

Once you've established a link using a cable, finding out the present key, or resetting it, should be as simple as browsing the web page served by the router.

I have a Belkin Wireless G Router. It is hooked up to the desktop. My laptop does not recognize to make wireless. I looked under network connections and the router is not listed.What do I do?


Network Connections are just for naming configurations for stuff. Configure your wireless network adapter and have it look for things to make a connections, and it can make you a 'Network Connection' for that Windows folder if you want. Otherwise just connect using the controlpanel for the device and be happy. Your router would not have WiFi turned on by default; that would be stupid and insecure. Read the fine manual and config the router from a wired connection to your laptop or PC so you can set up nice wireless passphrases and stuff.

D-Link DIR-625 Wireless Router is Blocking Web Address


Hi jshaw51

HERE's D-Links listing for your router.

HERE's where you can find downloads, etc. for the router. (including an owner's manual) You'll need to choose your router's version then you'll be directed to the appropriate page.

(01) Can you access this web site from any of the other computers on your LAN (when this router is connected)?

(02) Have you ever been able to navigate to this web site from the computer you're referring to while this particular router is connected?

(03) Have you recently installed any other networking equipment or a software firewall on one or more of your LAN computers?

(04) Were you able to ping the LAN computers prior to the onset of this problem?

(05) Can the LAN computers ping your computer? If not, were they able to previously?

(06) Has anything occurred or any changes been made that precipitated or coincided w/ the onset of this problem?

(07) Do you have any other information regarding this issue?

(08) If you like, you can **first** backup your router's configuration and **second** reset it to factory defaults and see if the problem persists.

(09) You can readily restore the backup. This will just be a quick way to determine if the problem is w/ the router configuration (assuming you were able to navigate to the site in question when you 1st got your router.)

Please, post back here w/ answers to these questions along w/ any observations or questions you might have.

We'll continue to work w/ you until the problem is resloved.

Please, hold off on assigning ratings to any of the experts' contributions until you're all set and have no more questions for us. (Once you assign ratings, the problem will be automatically closed and we'll no longer be able to assist you.)

Thank you,
BJ @:)
