You need to login to the user interface of your router usually it's 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.2.1 or 10.0.0.1 you need to hard wire a computer to your new router first open a browser and type one of the ip address on the top, type it on the address bar of your browser enter the admin pw, you did not specify the brand of the router but most router admin username and password is admin / password or just admin without pw or just admin for the pw, once you are logged in look for the network settings there and you can edit or set pw for your network depending on the nerwork type, hope this helps

How to set up password on router


To connect to your wireless router, the router's wireless settings needs to be configured with the SSID, encryption etc. and also the wireless cards in all the laptops/computers needs to be configured with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops/desktop computers can communicate with your wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the Linksys to the LAN port on your computer.
Open a browser and enter the Linksys configuration URL
http://192.168.1.1
The default login = admin
The default PW = admin
You can protect your router by changing the default admin PW (write it down and put it in a safe place)
Go to the wireless configuration and set up the SSID and WPA or WPA2 encryption.
Now apply these settings to the wireless card in your laptop/computer.

Need to unlock to use different network


If you're referring to "resetting" your wireless router, you only need to press a hidden button at the back of the router. Find a small hole at the back and press it using a thin object like toothpick or a wire. Press it for at least 15 seconds. After doing that, connect one PC to the router using LAN wire and log-in to the router's default address. Since you did not mention what modem you have, here are the options;
192.168.0.1 192.168.1.1 Use default Username and Passwords to set up new Wireless Protocol. Here are possible options;
UN: admin PW: admin
UN: admin PW:
UN: admin PW: password
UN: admin PW: 1234
From here, if you can log-in to Router's IP, look for the Wireless configuration options. It will allow you to set Network Keys and other security options.

Forgot PW 2WIRE101


forgot which password
A)the pw to access the router's settings
B)the key to connect to the router from wireless device
C)the pw to connect to the internet (anywhere past the router)
IF A) then when you are asked to enter your password if you forgot your password. click it, now it will display a hint, and also an option to click if you still can't remember... Just keep doing this until it asks you to reset the pw by 1st entering the network key located on the bottom of the router

If B)
on the bottom of the router there should be three rows of numbers

xxxxxxxxxxxxxx
> xxxxxxxxxxxxx <
xxxxxxxxxxxxxx

the middle row should be a ten digit number this is your access key.

if C)
the pw is the same as the pw for your at&t or sbc email address (which is the login) if you don't know what it is you wil need to call thier tech support to have the password reset. if this is the case BE VERY CLEAR THAT YOU CAN CONNECT TO THE ROUTER or they will ask you to do a bunch of **** to trouble shoot that connection before thier script leads them to this point.

Want to set a pw so that others can get on my wireless router


make your pw available to your friends by passing the login usb memory stick from friend to friend... this adds them to your wireless profile.. while allowing you to have a protected WAP (Wireless Access Point)

Need D-link security code to connect new Dell printer via wireless connection


You need to pull up the interface of your router to obtain the security code. Do the following steps:

1. open the command prompt on the pc
2. in the command prompt, type ipconfig
3. take note of the default gateway
4. open internet explore (or other browser) and type the default gateway in the address bar
5. the router page will be asking for a uid and pw, you should be familiar of such, if not try using admin for uid and admin for pw. These are mostly the default uid and pw for most routers.
6. once the interface of the router is pulled up, check on the wireless set-up and check on the wireless security password. That is the pw the printer is asking about.

I lost my pass word and cannot add a computer this is for my wireless router


The only solution here is to manually reset your router (usually a pushbutton on router)then go into router and reinstall settings. Make sure you write down all your known setting before doing this, and you know the default router address, ID, and PW, before doing this. This information is usually available on the router manufacturers website.
TIP- after its set up, write the SSID, user ID, PW, router IP, and security key on the router.
