The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID, WPA or WPA2 encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the wireless printer, or laptops or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the wireless printer, laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Why is the globe on my D-Link DIR-628 have a steady orange light?

The orange light usually means that you are not connected.
Try this:
Step 1: go to your Windows command and type ipconfig /all, it will give you all the vital information, i.e. default gateway, dns server, ip, etc.
Step 2: Go to your browser, type (default ip address for the router)
Step 3: Go to the Setup Tab, click on Internet Connection Setup Wizard, if you feel adventurous, select the manual internet connection setup and fill in all the information that it ask for. The wizard should be straight forward.
Step 4: Go to the top and Save Settings, it will prompt you if you are sure, click ok and the router will reboot and apply those configurations and the orange led light will turn into a green one.

I am trying to connect a wirelsss printer to my 3G Router - DIR-412 and it is asking for a WPA security passphrase and I can't find the passprhase. I have tried to go on the site, but...

I have an easier way to find your passphrase, but ONLY if you have a computer connected to the router wirelessly. Logging into the router and trying to find out the passphrase can sometimes not work either because a lot of the time, it is blanked out for security reasons, of course.

This program finds saved passwords on your computer for wireless access points. You can read more about it here, if you'd like, but the first link gets you right into the action.

Good luck!
