It's common for us to forget passwords the problem is when you need them:) It is simple to correct this problem but you need to connect directly to the router via a hardwire (ethernet cable). If you haven't changed the default IP setting on the router your going to do the following. Through your Internet Browser your going to type in the IP address of the Dlink router in the address bar. This default IP is 192.168.0.1 You will be prompted for username and password. By default that is Admin and password blank (nothing). Once logged in you will choose from the Dlink menu Setup then Wireless Settings. At this point keep it simple use the wireless wizard to re-create a new passprase for your WPA. By the way update your laptop as well. Some old wireless drivers don't work properly with WPA passprase and make it apprear your passphrase is incorrect when its fine. Good Luck.
Step 1 Open a web browser and type the IP address of the DIR series router into the address bar (default is http://192.168.0.1). Press Enter
Step 2 The default username is admin (all lower case) and the default password is blank (nothing). Click on OK.
Step 3 Click on the Setup tab at the top and then click on Wireless Settings on the lefthand side.Step 4 From the Wireless Security Mode dropdown menu, select WPA-Personal encryption.
Step 5 From the WPA Mode dropdown, Under WPA, select the form of WPA you would like to use.
Use WPA or WPA2 mode to achieve a balance of strong security and best compatibility. This mode uses WPA for legacy clients while maintaining higher security with stations that are WPA2 capable. Also the strongest cipher that the client supports will be used.
For best security, use WPA2 Only mode. This mode uses AES(CCMP) cipher and legacy stations are not allowed access with WPA security.
For maximum compatibility, use WPA Only. This mode uses TKIP cipher. Some gaming and legacy devices work only in this mode. To achieve better wireless performance use WPA2 Only security mode (or in other words AES cipher).
Step 6 In the Pre-Shared Key box, enter the desired Pre-shared key.
This is the "password" that allows communication between you're encrypted client (e.g. the PSP or your wireless computer) and the encrypted wireless signal coming from the router. This password must contain at least 8 characters, the characters can be anything you can create from your keyboard.
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.15.1 or http://192.168.2.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. If you are still not able to access router with above ip then you need to RESET it for that press RESET button for 10 seconds it is in back side of router then all settings defaults..Then you can access it with above method. . Then click on wireless->wireless security->WEP security there is code password note down it or enter new password then save setting s and restart router. then you can connect wireless with new password. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
log into the router by opening a web browser and entering the router ip, likely something like 192.168.1.1. Then navigate to the wireless section, change encryption from none to wpa, then add a password.
Most routers have a method to easily change the wireless password. You need to login into the router change the wireless encryption method. For example if you are using WPA then change it to WEP. Once thats done save the changes and the router will reboot. Now just switch back to the older encryption method and set a new key. Note that you should use the local ip to login into the router. If you don't know the local IP open command prompt. Start->Run-> Type in cmd and hit enter. Then type in ip config and hit enter. You should see an ip like 192.168.x.x. That is your local ip. Type it into the browser and hit enter. You will be prompted for router/modem admin username and password. Provide them and you can click on wireless-> security to change the password settings. You can simply reset the router and re-configure it with a new key.
Reset both password (1) pasword for access router via GUI (2)Wi fi security password WEP or WPA or WAP For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link. http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it. Then it ask for user name and password. Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank. Then you can see configuration page of router. Then click on administration and change password . Then Click on wireless settings enable wireless then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router. Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code. Let me know if you need further assistance. Thanks for using FixYa.
Lol whi-fi? You need to read up on WEP (Wired Equivalence Protection) WPA (Wi-Fi Protected Access) and WPA2 to learn about it. Then you need to login to your router usually using 192.168.0.1 or whatever I.P. (Internet Protocol) Address your router has. Use your default password (provided with your manual) and set a different password after inside. Read your manual to understand where to set your WEP or WPA Passwords. Keep in mind WEP despite the name is not Equivalent to Wired Connections. WEP can be cracked withing 1-2 minutes. WPA and WPA2 can be cracked as well if it is using a PSK Handshake. Do a little homework and read your owners manual. Understand the risk.
Log into your router by opening your web browser software, for example Internet Explorer. Type in the address field the ip address of your router. The ip address depends on the manufacturer, but it should look something like this - 192.168.1.1 . A window should appear asking you for your user name and password. If the router is set to default settings, the user name should be ADMIN and the password should be ADMIN. Hit enter. This should bring you to your routers configuration window.
SSID screen.Go to your wireless tab / basic wireless settings. Enter a SSID (wireless network name). The SSID may be on a sticker on the router or you could make one up. Choose a wireless channel. Disable your SSID wireless broadcast. Save or apply changes.
WEP / WPA screen.Go to your wireless tab / wireless security. Choose enable. Choose either WEP or WPA encryption, the latter is a more secure choice. Choose 64 or 128 bit encryption, again the latter is a more secure choice. Enter a passphrase and write it down so you can enter it when it is called for when installing the wireless software on your wireless computer. A hexadecimal WEP/WPA key should be generated. Save or apply changes.cheers
