On the back of the router there is a black button. Hold this for 10-30 seconds, it will remove the password. I recommend after completing that step, you log into the router via a browser and give it a password tho, to keep little demons from leeching your internet >:D

Add netgear73 router PPPoE to add network name and wireless key?


Assuming you already have a modem/router on your network and you are simply trying to add a wireless network, you will need to
set up the Netgear router to act as a wireless access point. To do this you need to connect a computer directly to one of the Ethernet (not WAN) ports on the back of the router. Access the router using its IP address (usually 192.168.1.1). Login using the userid and password of the router. First you need turn off the DHCP function of the router. This will make it a slave to the existing router. YOu will also need to change the router IP address to a static value. It is recommended you use a high number to avoid IP conflicts such as 192.168.1.210. You can then go to the wireless setup and set your network name (SSID) and password. Once you have done all that you can save and log out of the router. Disconnect the PC from the router and connect the Netgear router to the existing router using Ethernet cable. Use one of the regular ports on the existing router, and run the cable to one of the ports (not the WAN) of the Netgear router. You may have to reboot both routers to get initial communications established. Once you have them talking, the existing router should receive wireless requests from the Netgear router and assign IP addresses to the devices attaching to the Network.

I have lost the security code and have a new laptop, how do i set it up to work


Hi!

If you don't remeber the wireless security code, maybe you still remeber the user and password to access the web management interface of the router.
Then you have to connect the laptop to the router by using a network cable. Open a browser window, type in the IP adress of your router and check the wireless setup section. There you can find / modify the wifi security code.

If you don't know the router's IP adress, then open on your computer a ms-dos prompt and type the command
ipconfig /all

it will display your current IP adress, subnet mask and GATEWAY. The gateway adress is the router's IP adress that must be typed into the browser.

If you don't remember the user and password for accessing the router's web interface, please refer to the router's user manual in order to reset it to factory default configuration, and then proceed as for the first installation of the router.

Hope it helped,

Bogdan

Your laptop should be able to automatically find the network name and security type. (You would have set up all of this, by the way.)
You should then type in your security key/password (you should have set this up when setting up router for first time, also) and then you should be connected to the internet.
Your laptop might not have wireless capabilities, so you might have to buy a wireless network adapter.

I need to lock it so people cant get in with a password


Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
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.

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.

Just trying to find the password key that was used in the setup of a BelkinG router in our house, to enable another computer in the house to be connected to the existing network.


Open the working pc open internet explorer and type 192.168.1.2 in the webaddress bar. thsi will open your belkin router settings page. On the left choose wireless security. If it asks for a password leave the password box empty and just click submit. The wireless key is in the box beside pre shard key: if you cant see it untick obsure key at the bottom. Take a note of this for future reference. This is the password key your second computer needs.

I have a belkin router set up in my home and I just purchased a 2nd laptop but I am unsure how to add this new laptp to the connector


If you router is already set up and you want to add a new computer, you don't need to run the set up CD for the router again.
If you want to add a new wireless device ( laptop or any other wireless device) to the network, then you should know all the wireless settings of the router. What wireless settings do you need to know ?
You should know the wireless network name ( SSID ), wireless channel and the wireless security password
( network key ). Once you get all the wireless settings of the router , you will need to connect to the wireless network on the computer. when you try to connect to the network , you will see your wireless network in the list. You just need to select your network and connect to it. If it is secured then you will need to enter the network key and you will be able to go online.
To check the wireless settings of the router , you will need to access the router set up page. On the set up page you will find all the wireless settings of the router.

We've just moved house and have aquired to belking routers a belkin wireless pre n and a belkin ADSL G Plus MIMO I want to use the latter as a bridge how can I?


You need to access the setup page of your Belking router and go to the wireless setup, look fro Use as Access Point, now just a reminder this will defeat the NAT IP sharing feature of the router. Configure the IP address of the router to the same subnet as the network your tying to bridge here's the more detailed procedure:

1. Enable the AP mode by selecting "Enable" in the Use Access Point only page. When you select this option you can now change the IP Settings.

2. Set your IP settings to match your network. Click "Apply Changes"

3. Connect a cable from the LAN port of the router to your existing network.
