Where do I get the code

Almost all routers and access points have an administrator password that's needed to log into the device and modify any configuration settings.

Most devices use a weak default password like "password" or the manufacturer's name, and some don't have a default password at all.

As soon as you set up a new WLAN router or access point, your first step should be to change the default password to something else.

You may not use this password very often, so be sure to write it down in a safe place so you can refer to it if needed.

Without it, the only way to access the router or access point may be to reset it to factory default settings which will wipe away any configuration changes you've made.

This can be done by opening your internet browser (i.e. Internet Explorer, Firefox, Safari, Opera, etc.) and typing in the address bar

Once you hit enter, an authentication panel would pop-up requiring you to enter a username and password.
Note: If entering does not bring up anything, your default gateway may not be that.

For Windows, just go to Run command (Windows Start button, then click Run), and then type "CMD".
A DOS prompt would pop-out and you would just need to type, "IPCONFIG". Look for the words "Default Gateway", the numbers beside it are the ones you need to enter into your browser

Usually, its or so most likely you wouldn't have to do that.
Another Note: The usual username and password is "admin" (without the quotes).
For some routers, the username is admin, and the password is blank.

How to configure router. How to access router configuration

When you buy a router they usually come with "setup" Cd's that set up your router, or guide you through the process. What most people do not know is you do not need this CD and in my experience these disc can cause frustration and confusion. <br /><br />You can access your router and configure it simply by using your internet browser like Internet Explorer or FireFox.<br /><br />On most routers(reference your user manual) you can access the router configuration page by going to the gateway address. The gateway address is the IP address assigned to your router. In a lot of the cases, this address is but depends on your router. <br /> There are a couple of ways to find out this IP address. <br /> -Reference your router manual<br />or<br /> -In <a href="/../support/r9359087-find_wep_key_router_router_security#"><span>Microsoft</span><span> </span><span>Windows</span></a>, go to Start &gt; Run and in the run box type "cmd" or "command". A black window should open(MS-DOS). In this window, type "ipconfig /all". Look near the top of the output that is shows and you should see a "gateway address" field. This number is the ip address of your router. <br /><br />Once you know your gateway address, open up your internet browser as if you were going to go to a website. In the <a href="/../support/r9359087-find_wep_key_router_router_security#"><span>URL</span></a>(address) bar, type the gateway address and hit enter(see image below). A log in box should now show.<span> Again, reference your router manual if you do not know the administrative password</span>. Enter in your password and username. The following website has a list of default username and passwords and you may be able to find your router in the list. Click <a href="">here </a>for the website. <br /><br /><img src="g33k4u_7.png" /><br /><br /><br />Once you log in you now have access to the router settings and you can configure what you please. You can configure wireless settings, router log in credentials and other options. Have a look around and get familiar with it.<br /><br /><span style="font-style: italic;"><span style="font-weight: bold;">I would recommend</span> that if your router has a default password for </span><span style="font-style: italic;">admin/configuration</span><span style="font-style: italic;"> access, that you go ahead and create a new one. The default router passwords are usually very simple and this information can be easily found on the internet by anyone(as seen by the link I provided above!). People who set up home networks tend to leave this as is and it is a security risk. </span><br /><br /><br /><span>TIPS</span><br />-If you can't connect to the router and you know the gateway address, try plugging the <a href="/../support/r9359087-find_wep_key_router_router_security#"><span>computer</span></a> into the router directly using a Ethernet cable(LAN/patch cable). If you are still having trouble, you can perform a power cycle. Turn off your modem, router and computer. After 10 seconds turn on your modem, after 30 seconds turn on your router and after another 30 seconds turn on your computer. Try to access the router now. This also helps resolve other quirky router issues.<br /> -Make sure all the network cables, phone lines(if using DSL) and coaxial cables(cable/Broadband) are plugged in and secured firmly. <br /><br />-If you set up a password and username for your routers administrative access and can't remember it, you can reset the username and password back to factory default by performing a factory reset. On most routers this can be achieved by pressing and holding the small reset button on the back of the router for 15 seconds. <span style="font-style: italic;">Please reference router user manual for more information.</span><br /><br />I hope this article was informative.

Gateway login

What sort of problem at log in >>?????
Forgot password ?
A "setup password" is a password that you must enter to log into a user account on your Gateway laptop.

This can be beneficial if you have a number of people using the same computer and don't want just anyone having access to your personal files.

But if you are the sole user of your Gateway laptop, then it can be more of a hindrance.
As all Gateway laptop computers run a version of the Windows operating system, you can remove the setup password by accessing the Windows Control Panel.

Click on the "Start" menu.

Select the option that reads "Control Panel." If you're running Windows Vista or Windows 7, this will have its own listing in the "Start" menu.

If you're running Windows 95, Windows 98, Windows ME or Windows XP, this will be found under the "Settings" sub menu.

Double click on the icon that reads "User Accounts."
Click on the name of the account that has a setup password that you want to remove.

Click on the "Remove my Password" option.
Enter your current password into the appropriately labeled box.

Click the "Remove Password" option.
Click "OK" to save your changes and exit the "User Accounts" utility.

The setup password will have been removed from your account, and you will be no longer prompted to enter it when you boot up your computer.
Unlock a Gateway Computer

Getting locked out of your Gateway computer can be frustrating, especially when you have school or work deadlines.

You can get locked out of your Gateway computer in cases where a password protected screensaver became corrupt, or if the you have set the default screensaver to use a screensaver that does not exist.

Gateway computers come with Microsoft Windows XP and 2000, including the professional versions of both. Knowing how to unlock your a Gateway computer can save you time and irritation.

Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys on your keyboard simultaneously to unlock your Gateway computer.

Type the last logged-on user's login information and click "OK" if you see a locked computer message along with "Only domain/username or an administrator can unlock this computer." Press the "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete" keys once again when you see the Unlock Computer window disappear. Log on as usual. Method 2

Shut down the locked Gateway computer by using the Microsoft Windows Resource Kit Shutdown tool.

This tool shuts down and restarts a Windows 2000- or NT 4.0-based Gateway computer.
Note the dialog box that comes up called System Shutdown.
Wait for the shutdown timer to run out and see the Welcome to Windows box displayed on the screen.
Press "Ctrl," "Alt" and "Delete," which unlocks the computer.
Log onto your Gateway computer normally.
Method 3: Backup, Modify and Restore the Registry

Click "Start" and "Run," then type in the command below in the field box exactly as printed:
Click "Create a Restore Point," then click "Next" on the Welcome to System Restore page that appears.
Type any name for the restore point, then click "Create" on the Create a Restore Point page. Click "Close" after creating the restore point.

Perform this procedure before you make changes to the registry, just in case you make an error; otherwise, incorrect registry changes could create serious problems with your computer.
Click "Yes" if you receive a prompt to turn on System Restore at this point.
Clear the "Turn Off System Restore" check box by clicking on it, then click "OK," and repeat.
Click "Start," then type "regedt32.exe" (without the quotes) in search field box to modify the registry and unlock the computer. Press the "Enter" key on your keyboard.
Locate the scrnsave.exe value under the registry key below:
HKEY_USERS\.Default\Control Panel\Desktop
Click "String" on the Edit menu, type "logon.scr" (without the quotes), then click "OK."
Look for the ScreenSaverIsSecure value, then click "String" on the Edit menu, type "0," then click "OK."
Quit the Registry Editor
Click "Start" and "Run," then type the command below exactly as printed to restore the registry, then click "OK":
Click "Restore My Computer to an Earlier Time" on the Welcome to System Restore page, then click "Next."

Note your computer may already be selected to restore to an earlier time--in this case, just click "Next."
Click the system checkpoint on the Select a Restore Point page. Click "Guided Help (Registry Backup)," then click "Next" on the "On This List Select the Restore Point" area.

Click "OK" if you see a System Restore message listing all the configuration changes it will make. Click "Next" when you come to the Confirm Restore Point Selection page.

System Restore will now restore the Windows XP configuration you had at an earlier time, and then it will restart your Gateway computer.

Log onto your computer as usual, and then click "OK" when you see the System Restore Confirmation page.

My internet Connects perfectly to the computer to the modem.. but when I put my router inbetween the two, it stops working and i've tried everything including restore factory settings, and it still...

Well in order to access internet via your router, it needs to be configured as you said its being restored to factory defaults. Also always mention your ISP (Internet service provider), Router model no and Computer type with running Operating system for exact steps to fix such problems
Alright, first of all we need to establish physical connection with the Modem -> Router->Computer, then we will setup router
  1. Connect Ethernet cable from Modem to the WAN port of the router.
  2. Connect another Ethernet cable from Router LAN port to computer LAN port.
  3. Power cycle all the devices (Turn on Modem first, then Router and at last computer).
  4. Usually in case of Cable ISP, router would automatically get connection from Modem and Internet should start working.
  5. Else you can open Router admin page to configure
  6. You need to find the IP address of your router (usually Default IP of Netgear routers is I can't tell what is the IP for your router as you didn't mentioned Model no.
  7. Open Command prompt (Start-Run-CMD) and type IPCONFIG.
  8. Default gateway address is the IP address of your router. (You can also find router's default IP on the its panel below.)
  9. Now next step is to access router interface.
  10. Open Browser and type (It is just an example, you need to use the IP address of your router, we are assuming its Press Enter
  11. Type "admin" in usename and "password" in password box to login (both are in lower case without quotes)
  12. In the left side you can find Setup Wizard, Click on Yes and then Next
  13. Wait for the process to complete and then hit "Apply".


Ask me any questions if you need any help. Hope this helps.

If the default password has been changed then -
To reset the D-Link back to the default settings -
Press and hold the RESET button at the back of the router with the power ONuntil the LEDs flash at the time the release the RESET button.
Connect a LAN cable from the D-Link to your laptop/computer's LAN port, openthe browser on your laptop/computer and enter the D-Link's configuration URL..
The default login = admin
The default PW = blank (just press Enter) You can now change the default password.
You can now configure the wireless settings. Now configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop withthe router's wireless settings.

Reset my Cisco AIR-AP1242AG-N-K9 but still can't access the control panel using a console calbe and laptop. Using Cisco Cisco as user name and password. Note when typing the password nothing appears in...

Hmmm..., I assume you are using Windows..... Try just going to the Network, see if you router shows up if so.... Click on it... It should ask for a pin type in the pin that usually can be found on the bottom of your router... If not reset to factory defaults and in your broswer type in your IP address, do not use autoconfiguration.... On all Linksys routers the default username is admin (with the password left empty) from there you can set your password and configure your router for use.... Hope this helps ;)
