Lost my Wireless name (SSID) lost my Security Passphrase


1. Open your internet browser.
2. Type in 192.168.0.1 and press enter.
3. When prompted, type in admin for username and password for password. That should get you into all of the settings, where you can view your wireless network's SSID and security passphrase.
4. CHANGE your username and password. This is how hackers access your network!

Lost wireless PW, how can i access router to retrieve


To check the wireless settings, use a computer that can get online or is hardwired connected to the router.

Follow the steps below:

1. In the address bar of your Internet browser, type 192.168.1.1

2. It will prompt you for the username and password. By default, leave the username blank and the password is admin.

3. Go to the Wireless tab.

4. Click the Wireless Security tab.

a. If the mode is WEP, take note of the Passphrase and Key (you need to copy only the default transmit key). If WEP encryption is 64 bits, you have to copy the 10 digits security key.

NOTE: If you are using a Linksys wireless adapter on the additional computer, you may use the passphrase for the security key.

b. If the mode is WPA, copy the Personal key or the Enterprise Key.

5. On the additional computer's wireless settings, select your SSID and enter the keys that you copied.

Cant find wep key


Your printer is saying that you should secure your wireless internet. Try resetting the router by holding the reset button located on the back for at least 30 seconds.

Passphrase problem


To locate the passphrase or key you will have to log in to the web based settings page of the router. To do this you will have to be "wired" to the router and type into the address bar of an internet explorer window-192.168.1.1
This should prompt you to enter a username and password to log into the settings page of the router. The username and password should be admin. Once settings are opened the passphrase will be located under wireless security or just under the wireless tab. Let me know if this helps.

Good Luck

Having trouble adding computer to wireless network


this is just easy.. what you should type is the encryption key only... if your security is wep, only the encryption key or key 1 is needed. if your security is wpa, only the passphrase is needed.. it is very CASE SENSITIVE.. but if you see that the name has changed to LINKYS_SES, then you have a problem there because your wireless settings has changed due to the button on your router which is the secure easy set-up on the upper left corner which is the cisco button.
