Trying to connect another computer to my security enabled wireless network through a D-Link wireless router (DIR-615) and I'm prompted for a 'Device Ownership Password'. It's not a password that I use, so I'm not sure what it's asking for... it apparently consists of 6 numbers, and the prompt indicates that I should be able to find it on the device, but there's nothing that would fit this password criteria.
Is there a default password? If not, how can I figure out from the back end of my current connection with the original laptop (Dell XPS M1330, Windows Vista)?

Re: Device Ownership Password
The default password is found near the upc symbol on the router. That said i find it easier to reset the router before i reconfigure it. You can do this with a pen. on the back you will find a small hole. Put the pen in there and hold for thirty seconds and voila its reset to factory settings.
It seems like you have installed wireless pro card in your computer. so in this situation, you need to uninstall wireless card from control panel. once you will do that then you need to go ahead and restart your computer and try to connect your computer. it will start working fine. For more information you can visit link Tech Support. this will hep you alot.

I thought there was a check box in this model that enabled you to see the password/key. If not then you may have to do a factory reset and set-up everything from scratch. Cannot remember if this model has a guest mode, but if the device you are connecting is not critical, TV, BlueRay, Roku etc, then enable the guest mode without a password to connect. These devices will NOT connect to other things on the network, but if they only need internet access it may be OK.
All you need to do is to set it up properly. Make sure that the router is connected to the computer using an ethernet cable so that the computer will be able to communicate with the router. Then open a browser type 192.168.0.1 on the address bar. The default username is admin and the password is blank. Go to the Wireless Settings Page then check the SSID or Network Name and the Network Key or Passphrase. Now try to connect to your computer. Click on Start then click on Connect To. Select your Network Name then if it ask you to enter a password enter the Network Key. You can personalize the network key on the router settings page.
When you configure the "wireless" adapter inside the D-Link router, you should set:
* an SSID (a name for your wireless network)
* an encryption-level - hint: use 'WPA'
* a password for your wireless network
Once you've done the configuration, use the SSID/password on your iPod Touch.
This Device Ownership password is actually reffering to the WPS PIN number of your router which is usually on the sticker on the device. If you can't see it anywhere on the device, scan for wireless networks and connect to your network.
Once it will ask for the device Ownership password again, just click on the phrase that says " I want to enter a network key or passphrase instead" or " I don't want to configure, I just want to connect" ( this is applicable with vista ). If you have an XP computer and your using the wireless utility of your computer, disable that utility and use the Windows Zero Configuration.
You want to secure the wireless network. Is there any computer connected to the router with the Ethernet cable? If not then you will need to connect the computer to the router with the cable. Check the IP address on the computer. Open the router set up page. Once you open the set up page, you will find the option to make it secured
if youve changed the password on the router since the other computers logged onto the network, then you need to delete the network history from those computers. Otherwise those laptops will be trying to connect to the network with the old details.
Login in using your browser and go to the wireless settings and set-up a wireless password/key. Remember the key because each device will now need it to connect. You can also turn OFF Broadcast SSID and your network name will not be shown on anyone's device. You must remember the network name when using this method.

Is your wireless network secured ? If you are trying to connect to the secured wireless network, make sure that the network that you are typing is correct. If you are not sure about the network key then check the network key on the router. You said that MAC is able to connect to the neighbor's wireless network.
