I need the password for

There is a reset button on the back of the router, usually has the words RESET next to it and you have to use a sharpened pencil or a paperclip to push it. Press and hold that button for one minute. Do not let go. After you release it the lights blink and then become steady.

Now you have reset your password to it's original factory default.

Your wireless router default settings are:
username: admin
password: password

From this point on, you can re-set up your wireless router. To do so you connect your computer to a LAN port on the router.

Open internet explorer or firefox (whichever you use) and type into the address bar:
Login with the username and password.

From here on you can change your SSID, username, password, set wireless security, and so on.

Good luck, let me know how it goes.

I have a versalink model

you should have a RESET button on the back panel of the router. Power on you router, press the RESET button around 20sec. and then release.
Your router should go back to a factory default state and you can set up again the settings in it without the security key and you can generate a new sec.key if you need.

I cannot connect to internet, because I do'nt have

The passphrase is the access key used to gain internet access to the router. If you dont have this key or passphrase the router doesnt belong to you.

If the router does belong to you, and was previously set up by someone else, you can do a hard reset by plugging it in, locating the small hole on the bottom or side with possiblitly the words reset next to it. Insert a pin for about 10-20 seconds and the device should revert to the default settings.

You can then plug into your internet router and access the setting through windows to set up a new WPA security profile.

Cannot connect my xbox to my wireless internet

XBOX does not do wireless unless you have the adapter. If its directly to the router, then you need to make sure there is no double NAT which is on your modem and router.

If you are using WPA2 with a completely random generated PSK (ie, not dictionary-based, with lower and upper case, numbers AND special characters), you are not going to get much better in a home environment... if you need to, generate your key using a random password generator (you can find them just by googling 'random password generator', there are a lot online so you don't need to download anything).

DO NOT use WEP, as this is VERY easily crackable (2 mins on average using simple tools).

If you feel that you have the ability, you can download a linux CD with wireless tools for testing your wireless network, just search for 'backtrack linux'. Their website has some useful tutorials for the testing process.

Hope that this is of some help, don't forget to rate me :D

How do I install my WEP number

go to If you have already configured the router for internet access, then just click on "configuration" otherwise, go through the steps to configure it according to your ISP's instructions, then click on configuration. then wireless. Then go down to privacy settings.

Pick which authentication type to use ( I recomened open)
Then pick the highest encyption meathod that all of your wireless devices are capable of. 64-bit, 128-bit or 256-bit.

Most devices use 64 and 128 bit, but if all of your devices use 256, then use it. Then create a wireless key to use.
If key select is selected, the WEP Key is treated as a string of text characters, and the number of characters must be either 5 (for 64-bit encryption) or 13 (for 128-bit encryption) or 29 (for 256-bit encryption).

If not selected, the WEP key is treated as a string of hexadecimal characters, and the number of characters must be either 10 (for 64-bit encryption), 26 (for 128-bit encryption), or 58 (for 256-bit encryption). The only allowable hexadecimal characters are 0-9 and A-F. (My hint is to use hexadecimal, it is eaiser)

If you would like to create a new WEP key go to this site (http://www.powerdog.com/wepkey.cgi) and type in a passphrase and click generate. it will generate 4 64-bit keys and 1 128-bit key.

choose the best bit 64 or 128 bit, then copy and paste it into the correct key box(es)

My router will work as a 4 port connect but no

You do NOT need software to configure the Westell- it is configured through a web-browser interface. Here's how to access the westell: Go to start > run> type cmd. Press enter. That will bring up a command prompt. Type IPCONFIG /ALL and press enter. What you are looking for is the default gateway. Normally it should be
Next open a web browser (internet explorer, firefox, chrome, safari, etc) and in the address bar (NOT THE SEARCH BAR!) type (or whatever you saw for Default Gateway when you ran IPCONFIG)
You should get a box asking for user name and password- by default those are "admin" and "password" respectively.
That should log you into the Versalink, where you can modify how it connects (for instance, setting the DSL username and password, or DHCP, or static IP routing information), the wireless features, etc. I’m happy to help further over the phone at https://www.6ya.com/expert/susan_42b401e0b1603d8a

Verizon can only support from the telephone-pole across the telephone-wire to your DSL-modem; any "customer-provided-equipment" is not their problem.

LINKSYS (now CISCO) is the "market-leader" in the wireless-router business. Look at their "Wireless N" routers, and look for "extended range". It should be well under $100.

Trouble with access point

try trouble shooting the device and see if that works. Please try the following troubleshooting: Are you using WEP or WPA security on your router? Log into the router using the default IP (consult your router's manual for assistance) Locate the "wireless security" section of your router settings and find the WEP or WPA key. If you are using 64-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 10-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. If you are using 128-bit encryption, the WEP Key must be a 26-character key consisting of numbers or letters A through F. The WEP Key must be a Hexadecimal (0-9, A-F, no other special characters or letters). If your router has multiple slots for a WEP Key, make sure the active key is the one in the #1 slot. If you are using WPA, the Wii console is compatible with the following types: WPA - PSK (TKIP) WPA - PSK (AES) WPA2 - PSK (AES)
If your WEP or WPA key is correct, then the problem might be related to MAC address filtering: From the router settings, locate the "MAC address filter" settings (also known as "access control", "access list", or "network filter" depending on your router model). If the Mac address filter is set to "enabled", then you must add the Wii's MAC address to the "allowed" list. You can locate the Wii's MAC address from the "console information" page (located under "Internet" in the Wii Settings). If the Mac address filter was disabled, then continue troubleshooting.

Check Nintendo's router info for special notes, if available, for your router. Click here to go to our Wireless Router lookup page. Use the drop-down box to select, if available, your router manufacturer. Click on your router's model number, if available. Read any "special notes" at the top of the router's page. Many issues can be solved by changing settings described in the "special notes."

Try a "Manual Setup" with the Wii console (how to), using your network's IP configuration settings. To access these settings: On your PC, click "Start" and then "Run." Type "CMD" into the field that appears to open a new window. Type "IPCONFIG/ALL" and press "Enter" to display a list of internet settings. Locate the settings asked for by the Wii console during the Manual Setup process and enter them.

Power cycle your router and modem by unplugging them both from the wall. Wait a few minutes, and plug the modem back in. Wait a couple of minutes for the modem to initialize, then turn on the router. Try to connect the Wii console online and test for proper response. if you require further assistance please let me know and i will be glad to assist you. -Midwest-tek
