Access the Web Interface , by inputting the IP address of the router into a web browser , then navigate through to the wireless page , by clicking the links on the page , then when within that page choose the encryption type (WPA2 is the strongest) and then the key (password)


If you cannot find the IP address look in the manual that came with the router or

Click start

Click Run

Type cmd

hit ok

In the black DOS screen that appears type: ipconfig

hit enter

where it says default gateway the numbers preceding that is the IP address


Goodluck.

Router password change


The easiest way to do this is to find the reset button, press it in and hold it for about 30 seconds to a minute. This puts the whole thing back to factory defaults. From there you should be able to access the router from your PC via an Ethernet cable (you will need to look up the default user and password) or via wireless (there will be no wireless password as routers come without them most of the time and you have to enable the password security). Either way, cable or wireless, you have access to your router.

I just buy a d-link wireless router and have problen with the installation


Installing a Wireless Router Is usually a step by step process for all brands , To get this installation done properly first thing you want ot do is Plug in the power cord and turn this Router on nearby the Modem that your internet Service Provider gave you. Once the Unit is powered I would like you to unplug the ethernet cable that is going from your cable box to your desktop and plug that ethernet wire to the back of your new D-link wireless router into the WAN port. Once you do that you should allready be transmiting wireless but your name will be the default D-Link and you wont be encrypted (Protected from others getting into your internet). To get password encrypted you will have to using your web browser by typing "http://192.168.0.1" into the URL address box and press enter. Then from there you should select the Wireless section and put a SSID name which is what shows up when you find your wireless router on another computer and WEP or WAP is the password encryption if you want to make it easy I would suggest you use a WEP 64 BIT and that will only ask you for a 10 digit number. I usually tell my customers to put in there phone number with the area code . then from there you can navigate the other options you can customize and save the router settings and you should be up and running from there. using your web browser by typing "http://192.168.0.1" into the URL address box

I have a linksys wireless G router. My exhusband put a password on it and I do not know the password. My wireless card on my laptop went out and I had to buy a new one. Now I need to have the password in...


I'm guessing you don't have the key to join the wireless network. If you have an ethernet cord you can hook your laptop directly into one of the numbered ports into the back of your router. After it's hooked up open a web browser such as internet explorer or safari. In the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and a password dialog should pop up and the default router username is admin and password is admin. If thosed don't work try either admin blank or blank admin. After that you should have a page with tabs at the top click on the one that says wireless, then there should be a sub-tab called security that has the wireless key there.

If the admin password doesn't work there is a small red button on the back of the router that you can press with a pen and hold down for 15 seconds to reset the router to factory defaults that means no wireless password and that the wireless netwok will go back to the default name "linksys" . Though if you choose this route you might look into putting a password on your wireless depending on how crowded your neighborhood is. If you need any more help drop me a line on this question.

We have purchased a new notebook{higrade brand vista OS} to replace a packard bell using XP the XP laptop connected no problem the newone finds the belkin router but won't connect to the internet are...


Do you have a wireless security protocol enabled, and if so, what? Install a wired connection to the router (use an ehternet cable to connect your laptop's RJ-45--looks like a wide phone plug--into one of the Belkin router's network jacks). Go to the router's management page using your web browser (probably http://192.168.2.1). If you have not previously set the password in your router, simply leave the password field blank and CLICK "Submit". If you have previously password protected your Belkin router, use the known password. If you have forgotten your password... you'll need to reset your router.
 
Reest Router: there is usually a small hole into whiuch a pin or paper clip can be inserted for this purpose or a small button to press. Most Belkins--IIRC--have the button. 

Once you are on the Belkin router's management page, look for the wireless link and set your security protocol to match what your wireless card is capable of, set the password, save and exit. Use the sasme password in configuring wireless networking in Windows.
