Question about Computers & Internet
no real way around this...
Best to reset the wireless router back to factory defaults, reconfigure to lock it down and apply the security key/passphrase to your wireless laptops. you WILL also need to know what your old settings were for example, your ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, your new wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. (Try these before resetting the router.) You may be able to get the wireless security key and/or passphrase. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
For Belikin routers:
•Unplug all LAN cables from the router.
•Unplug the router power cord connector from the back of the device. By default the password on the router is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1
•Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.
•Continue to hold the reset button in for at least 15 seconds after inserting the power cord, then release it. After about 10-25 seconds the router will boot and it will be set back to the original factory default settings.
The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. (Try these before resetting the router.) You may be able to get the wireless security key and/or passphrase.
If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
