Question about Computers & Internet

I just bought a G4 router. I have yet to enable a password for it as I wanted to make sure everything works. My laptop from work is asking for the device ownership password. I cannot find this password referenced in any of my paperwork.

Hi It is very simple! Just create a new Profile:
1. in System Tray click on WiFi icon,
2. select 'Configure WiFi'
3. open 'Profiles...'
4. choose 'Add...'
5. in 'Profile Name:' type anything (it can be the same name as SSID)
6. in 'WiFi Networks Name (SSID):' type a proper name of your WiFi SSID
7. choose 'Operating Mode:' you have 2 options, but I rather choose Network (Internet)
8. click 'Next'
9. leave selected 'Personal Security'
10. under 'Security Settings' choose WEP or wpa-psk encryption type that is enabled on ADSL router. On my router I have WPA-PSK, and I have chosen WPA-Personal (TKIP)as its the strongest encryption. careful in choosing the correct encryption type.
11. type Encryption key in field 'Password'
12. click OK
13. select this new profile and click 'Connect'
hope this helps

    I am still looking to see what the device ownership password is for your router. However from what I have found it sounds like the pins used on bluetooth devices.



    So I would like you to put in eight "0" to see if this works.



    Let me know how things go

I bought a used apple powerbook G4,my wifi does not work without a password but I don't know that password, how do I find password


Lack of information , What is the model number of the wi-fi router. Once you know this google search for default ip address (with the router model number) then google search default password (with router model) then open a browser with p.c or laptop directly connected to the router via an ethernet patch cable. Type in ip address in browser. then log into router. And go to security and look what the encryption key is and make a note of it, if you have a working device already on the wi fi you may be able to log into the router. typical default router addresses are 192.168.0.1 ot 10.0.0.1 your may be different.

During configuration, you must enable the router radio and SSID (Name) broadcast, so that the router would be visible to laptops and other wi-fi enable devices.

Select Wireless Settings under Advanced in the main menu of the WNDR3300 router.
Make sure the Enable Wireless Router Radio and Enable SSID Broadcast check boxes are selected.

Hope it helps!

MacBook not connecting to DIR-655 Router


My solution was that I changed the wireless mode from "B,G and N" to just "B and G," and then it worked fine.

Can't connect home comp to laptop


how many wireless computers do you have?
is it a dekstop or laptop?
if desktop have you installed a wireless adapter? if laptop, is it using a built-in wireless adapter, have you enabled the wireless adapter or have you installed a wireless adapter?
-------

please make sure first that the wireless adapters are installed properly or enabled on your computers, if everythings OK.

-------

access the setup page of your router and change the wireless settings of it.

how to access the ui
- open the internet explorer
- on the address bar type in 192.168.1.1 hit enter
- enter admin under password, leave it empty for the username and click ok
- click the wireless tab
- set the wireless mode to mix, change the wireless network name or ssid with any preferred name you want to use, make sure to enabled the ssid broadcast and then click save settings.
- after that, under wireless tab, there are sub tabs, click wireless security
- set wireless security to WPA-PERSONAL, and under passphrase, enter your desired password for wireless connection, take note of it and please be reminded that its case sensitive.
- click save settings.
----------------------------
for your wireless computers, if adapters enabled and working fine, on the system tray you should have an icon for the wireless connection, doubles click on it and it will pop for the wireless connection window wherein you can see the name that you set on your router, all you have to do is select the name click on connect and it should ask you enter a password, enter the passphrase you set on the router and click connect. then check if you can go online, if yes do the same thing with other computers.

Have a great day ahead.
