Lost Access to router

I usually access my router by typing into my browser then entering my user name and password. Yesterday I chaned a setting that basically said "connect on demand". Now my computer can't find my router and I cannot access it through the browser window to change the setting back. A "reset" didn't seem to work either. Can you help?

I think we need to reset the router that you have.

1. While the router is on, kindly hold the reset button of your router for about 45 seconds. Make sure that the power lights blinks (meaning that the device has been resetted properly).
2. Try again to access on your browser.
3.If your cant access it, try to use another computer.

Please let me know.

How to enable or disable remote access on a VersaLink 7500 wireless router

Remote access is a way for you to log in to your router's settings from any computer that has Internet access, even if it's not on your local network. You can configure your VersaLink 7500 Wireless Gateway for remote access by following the steps below.

To enable remote access:

- Open up a web browser on any computer that's on the same network as your router.
- Type your router's IP address (by default, it is into the browser's address bar and hit Enter.
- Click the Advanced link at the top of the screen.
- Click Yes when asked if you're sure you want to proceed.
- Click Remote Administration.
- If you are asked to log in, enter the user name and password for your router.
- Click the box next to Enable Remote Access.
- Write down the URL shown on the next line; that is the IP address and port number you'll use to access your router remotely.
- Click Apply to save the change.

To disable remote access:

- Follow the steps above to get to the Remote Administration page.
- Remove the check mark next to Enable Remote Access.
- Click Apply.

If you haven't already changed the router's user name and password from the preset ones, you should do that now to prevent other people from being able to access your router over the Internet. You can set up a new name and/or password by clicking Users on the Advanced page. If you don't regularly use remote access, you should leave it disabled as an added security measure.

How do i unlock my d link

The first thing you should do upon completing a wireless connection with a D-Link router is to set up wireless security by accessing the router settings. This protects you against computer hackers trying to gain access to your bandwidth to commit fraud against you or others. It also restricts access away from those who live around you that would rather use your bandwidth instead of paying for their own. Unauthorized users can drastically slow your network speed.

1.Enter the IP address for the D-Link router into a web browser. The default address is This address is typically located underneath the router. Load the page to access the login details.

2.Enter the login details. Refer to your records if necessary. The user name is usually "admin." Enter in your password. A blank password is the default. Load the page to access the router settings. Note: It's important to set a password, if you haven't already done so.

3.Click on the "Set Up" hyperlink and then click on the "Wireless Settings" hyperlink.

4.Scroll down until you see "Wireless Security Mode" and select your desired level of security from the drop-down. The type of security you select depends on the electronic equipment you want to connect to your network and the level of security you want to enable. See Resources for details on the different types of security available. If you are still unsure, WEP offers a decent level of security and works with almost all Wi-Fi enabled components like mobile phones, gaming equipment and laptops.

5.Enter in your desired password into the "Password" field and then enter in the password a second time in the "Re-Enter Password" field. Select "Save Setting" to enable wireless security on your D-Link Router.

Cannot get on the puter its asking for network user name password and domain

As long as you're trying to access your own internet/router you can easily find both pieces of information.
Luckily each brand of router has it's own solution to recovering a lost network key/password.
First, specify the brand router you own. I will provide information on two common brand routers below:
In your web browser (even if you cannot connect) type in exactly: This is your router's LAN address and will give you access to a host of control screens
Then click the "Security" tab which will reveal your network key/codes.
Your network user name/password should be shown in this tab!
Connect an Ethernet cable to the network port of any network computer and plug the other end into an available port on the back of the router.
Open your internet Browser
Check your router manual/instruction manual/router itself for the AP Address of router. It is usually
Input this Address into your internet browser (you do not need connection for this to work).
Go to the security tab after loading this page. Your username/password should be listed there!
Best of luck.

How to set a password?

  • Access the router's default configuration address through your Web browser by entering this address: (see Resources). Do not enter a user name. Enter "admin" for the password. That process works for all new Linksys routers. If you have changed the user name or password in the past, use the user name and password that you created.

  • 2

    When the configuration screen opens, click on the "Wireless" tab and select "Wireless Security" to view the router's current security password. The "Security Mode" field will say "Disabled" if you do not have a password to secure your network.

  • 3

    Select the appropriate encryption type from the "Security Mode" drop-down menu. Linksys routers offer WEP and WPA encryption. WPA encryption allows you to use a single password to access the network. WEP encryption creates 10- or 26-character keys that act as your password. Some of your wireless devices may only utilize a certain type of encryption. Determine which protocol is best for your network.

  • 4

    Enter a password that will be required to access the network. For WPA encryption, you can write your own password. For WEP encryption, click the "Generate" button to create passwords that can be used to access the network. Write down your passwords and keep them in a secure location.

  • 5

    Click "Save Settings" to confirm your changes. Your network will now be secured and will require a password for access.

  • 6

    Click the "Administration" tab to create a password to access the router configuration page itself. Be sure to change the password from the default "admin." Reenter the password for confirmation in the next field. Click "Save Settings" to confirm your new password.

    I want to change password for wifi network

    Open up an Internet browser window on your computer system. To gain access to the default settings, type in the default IP address of the wireless router in your Internet browser's address bar and press enter. You must refer to the wireless router's documentation or navigate to the manufacturer's website for the correct IP address.

    Type the default user name and password in the security dialog box that appears, then press Enter on your keyboard. Because different router manufacturers use different default user names and passwords, refer back to your router's documentation or support webpage for the correct information.

    Navigate through the router administration pages to find the wireless router's administrator password settings. Change the default user name and password to a unique set so that possible unauthorized access to your router settings will not take place. Make sure to hit "Save Settings" to complete the change.

    Set up your wireless security settings by navigating to the proper administration settings page. By default, wireless routers do not come with a password for connectivity access. Choose the appropriate wireless security level you need and type in a unique user name and password. Save these new settings and log out of the router's administration setup.

    Write down the user names and passwords for both network access and the administration setup page. Keep these user names and passwords in a safe place.

    Have a great day.

    401 Authorization Error when accessing a Web-based Utility

    Getting the 401 Authorization Required error page means that you tried to access a Setup page and entered an invalid password three (3) times. To reset the password, the device must be reset to factory default settings. Resetting the device: 1. Hold in the Reset button (usually located on the front or back panel) for 30 seconds. 2. Unplug the power cord to the device and wait for 1 minute. 3. Plug the power cord back into the device. 4. This will restore the device's default settings, which includes a default password of admin. 5. You can now try to access the Setup page again. Accessing the Setup Page: Open a Web Browser (either Internet Explorer or Netscape). Type the IP Address of the device into the Address Bar and press [Enter]. 1. The User Name and Password Prompt will appear. 2. Leave the User Name Field blank. 3. Type in the Router?s Password, admin, (the default Password). 4. Click OK or press the [Enter] key. If the device was reset to factory settings, the password of admin should be valid and the Setup page should load. If not, repeat steps to reset the device
