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 laptops and or computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router.

Why can't my dell inspiron 530s desktop install


With a wireless connection, your PC can connect wirelessly to a network printer. In addition, you can set up your PC in a location where no phone line or cable connection exists. Outfitting your desktop to a wireless Internet connection is very easy. Just follow these simple steps and you'll be surfing the net wirelessly in a matter of minutes.
Find out if wireless Internet reception exists where your computer is located. If you're located very close to a W-iFi hotspot, like a coffee shop, you may be able to use this network to get wireless Internet for desktop PCs. Also, some apartment complexes and college dorms have free wireless Internet. Your neighbors may have wireless Internet too, which you can ask them if you can use. Buy a wireless network adapter for your desktop. You can obtain an adapter from most electronic stores. Be sure to get a wireless adapter with the proper strength, which depends on how far you are from the wireless hotspot. The easiest adapters to install are those that just plug into an available USB port. Set up your wireless Internet for your desktop PC according to the instructions that came with the wireless adapter. The usual procedure is to plug the wireless adapter into an available USB port. Windows will install the appropriate driver. After your PC recognizes the wireless adapter, select the "Connections" icon in the taskbar (represented by vertical bars). A list of available connections will appear. Select the desired connection. If you are prompted for a password, enter the appropriate password. Click "Connect." You are subsequently connected to a wireless network. Launch your browser and enjoy surfing the Internet wirelessly. If you are the owner of the wireless network, secure your wireless network with a password. To do so, navigate to the "Start" menu and select the "Control Panel." Then select "Network and Internet" and "Network and Sharing Center." Click "Change adapter settings" in the left pane. Double-click the icon of the appropriate wireless connection. The Wireless Network Connection status window appears. Click the "Wireless Properties" button. Select the "Security" tab and select an encryption type from the drop-down selection. Enter a password in the Network security key field. Make sure that the password matches the router settings. Press "OK" when done. Get a wireless internet router for your Internet connection if there is no wireless Internet already in your area. You can buy these online, or at electronic stores. You'll need to set up your router using the accompanying instructions and your own Internet service provider. This is best in a home with multiple computers. Hope this helps

I forgot my password, so i can't set up my new laptop.


The default username for this is "admin" and the password is "password"

You could try those first.

If not then you'll need to reset the router by holding the little button on the back in for approx 30 seconds while the unit is powered on.

This will likely wipe your internet details and disconnect your internet, so if you need to do this make sure you know what your settings are first.

You would connect a laptop from Canada the same way as one from the US. You want to make sure the wireless card is turned on and check for wireless networks. Once you have found your network select it make sure you type the password correctly.

You have to enter the router password on every wireless device you want to connect to the internet. You usually only have to do it once per device, but it won't connect without the password. The password it's looking for may be on the label on the router or in the wireless setup page of the router.

3.Turn on the router
4.At the back of the Router there is a Red/Black button (Reset Button)
5.Push and Hold that button for 30 seconds.
6.Release the button and turn off the router for 30 seonds and turn it on again.
7.Type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar of the Internet Explorer and hit Enter
8.Enter the username and password (default password is admin and leave the username blank)
9.on the Setup page, make sure the Internet Connection Type is set to "Automatic Configuration-DHCP" and click Save settings.
10.Now click Wireless tab and fill the sections as mentioned:

If you have DSL internet connection, then all you need is to change the Step-9 and all the settings will remain same.

Internet Connection type should be selected to PPPoE and enter the Username and Password provided by your Internet Service provider. Then click Save Settings.

I hope this will resolve the issue.

I lost my password and lost the WGT624 installation CD, how can i get the router to work on a new laptop


If you have lost the password to access the router page then you have to reset the router

Ensure that you have all the details regarding your internet connection before resetting the router

If you reset the router you can run the smart setup wizard and get connected by entering correct information in all the pages of the wizard

If you are looking for the wireless password:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Access your router page ( Open Internet Explorer --> Type 192.168.1.1 and enter it--> Login name(default)-admin, Password(default)-password) --> GO to wireless settings,under Wireless settings you will find the wireless password.

Hello, You can reset the router to default. On the back of router push in the reset button/hole for 10-15 seconds. The defaults will be: IP address 192.168.1.1 User name admin. You shouldn't need a password. From there you can change username, password, SSID and enable WEP or WPA security. Hope this helps.
