If your internet service provider had previously set up your wireless network, they will typically leave a sticker on the bottom of your router with the key to connect to it. However if you're setting it up for the first time open your web browser and go to 192.168.1.1 There is no user name and the password is 'admin' (no single quotes) by default.

Where do I find 8 digit pin number for RTA1025WE router so we can use a Wireless N Nano USB Adapter


There are two ways to do a setup for a wireless adapter:
* use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to one of the LAN ports on the router; login to the router; and set the SSID (the name you are choosing for your wireless network). Then, put that Nano USB adapter into the computer, and it should load the device-drivers, and eventually will ask for the name of the SSID. Then, you can disconnect the Ethernet cable, and use the wireless connection;
* as you have discovered, some routers have (and some do not have) an 8-digit 'PIN' number.

What is wps pin


Wi-Fi Protected Setup (WPS) is a standard for easy and secure wireless network set up and connections. Some of NETGEAR's products use the name Push 'n' Connect for WPS. To use WPS, your product must support WPS and be compatible with WPA security. WPS can automatically set up a random network name (SSID) and strong WPA wireless security for wireless routers, access points, computers, adapters, Wi-Fi phones, and other electronic devices.
WPS lets you use a push button or enter a personal identification number (PIN) instead of manually entering a network name (SSID) and password:
  • Push button. The WPS button is either a button on the product or a an option on the wizard or utility screen.

I want to set up my LINKSYS network adapter and my laptop asks for the pin number? where is the pin number?


When youclick Refresh network list, then Choose yourwireless network and then click Connect to your secured WirelessNetwork, it will asks for a Network Key before allowing you to connectinto your wireless network. This Network Key is either the WEP, orWPA or WPA2 Encryption key that is used to configure the Wireless Router. The Passphraseis an alternate way to setup the Encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrasethat was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router.

My network setup is asking for a pin number that is on my router. Obviously there is no pin number for this particular router and my network is asking for a 4 or 8 digit number. What do I do?


If its asking for a pin number I would check the sticker on the bottom of the router. it may have the router PIN you are looking for. If not trying typing in your internet browser address bar 192.168.1.1 and find the network settings and see if there is a pin set up, if so write it down or clear it to have no PIN

Need to setup WiFi Protected Pin number


This router is like most routers and you must be logged in to the router as an Administrator, and once you have logged in (using http://192.168.1.1 ) with the login and password, go into the Wireless section and establish your network's name (SSID) and choose your security --- I prefer WPA-PSK[TKIP] for its relative simplicity. This, I believe, is your "protected Pin Number", and is needed to log in to the router with wireless access. Must be initially set up with wired access ...
