Zyxel wireless router password

My friend set up my router at home and I bought a laptop for when I am at work. My problem is when I get home from work and want to use my laptop I don't know my password for router to log in through laptop so I have to keep using my dongle. Could someone please advise on how to change password on wireless router step by step if possible as my friend does not remember password.

Many thanks

Hi . do you guys cant access to your wireless router ? if yes than try this

reset your modem by pressing reset button on your modem for more than 5 seconds so all the information entered will be gone including your password

than insert your modem CD and connect to your modem

set up your internet again
put your password and user name that your ISP gave you
set : get IP from ISP
get DNS from ISP
APPLY
than go to wireless setting

use wpa- personal
and set up a new password eg. (usa2008)

than it will say your computers and network setting doesnt match
go to connect find your modem
right click on it
click on properties
than go security
choose WPA- personal
TKIP
and your password (usa2008) you set to your modem
connect to your internet


im not sure if this is what you mean / thats how i anderstood your problem

NOTE : RESET YOUR MODEM IF YOU HAVE ALL YOUR INTERNET SERVICE INFORMATION

BECAUSE IT WILL DELETE ALL INFORMATION IN YOUR MODEM including user name / password / IP / DNS / and your modems password

I have a ZyXel P-330W router that ws given to me a few years ago, today for Christmas we recieved 2 laptops with wireless and need a password to connect them to the router. How can I reset the router to...


Plug directly into the P-330w and open up a browser. In the address bar type in 192.168.1.1 (or 192.168.10.1) and hit enter. The login will be username: admin password: 1234 If those don't work you'll need to reset the router to actually get back into the settings. Once you are logged in click on Wireless on the left side of the screen and then Security. If your encryption is set to WEP, click on the "Set WEP" button to the right. The Key1 box is your wireless password. If the encryption is set to WPA then look down near the bottom of the page where it says WPA Pre-Shared Key. The box next to that is where you can type in the password. Retype a password that is 8 or more characters and click Save at the bottom. Then you should be able to use that password on all your computers when connecting wirelessly.

These are some reasons why your new Hp laptop can't connect through your Netgear Router is because your Router has a security that used a password to connect to your router or the ip address of your desktop and Dell laptop is already setup to the router to work with internet.

How do I hook up the router ?I bought a compaq laptop from a friend, it came with a router (netgear)


If you connect the computer directly to the modem, does it work?
If that works then the modem is working.
Now connect the computer to the router and the modem to the router.
You will need to open the set up page of the router to check the settings of the router.
You can set up the router without the CD also.
It is very easy.

if you mean the WEP key to be able to connect to the router then there is no way of getting this Legally but if you are connected to the router already and you just want to access the control panel then enter the routers ip into your browser address bar. the default ip for this router is 192.168.1.1 the default username is 'admin' and the default password is '1234' if it has not been changed by your housemate.

Hi
I presume that your internet was working fine before you bought your new laptop. Unless you've done something to change it it should still be working as before.
You shouldn't need a CD - if you think about it you don't need a CD when you log in in Starbucks so why should you need one at home?
The only thing you need to know is the router's wireless name; Talktalk 12345etc, and its password - which is the password your son is using.
I can't explain why you can't connect when your son is connected - as the router should be able to host 253 laptops (very very slowly mind) - unless the router has been set with an access list that only allows his laptop to connect.

Toshiba NB 205 connects to router but not internet


The wireless configuration is set differently on routers, eg the SSID, and encryption. You need to configure the wireless LAN card in the laptop to connect/communicate with the different routers.
Some wireless LAN card allow you to setup different profiles/settings for different wireless routers. Eg one setting for the office and one for home, which allows easy connection to the Internet by selecting the appropriate profile/setting.
