Resolved Question:

When I enter 192.168.1.1 nothing happens. Says the page is unknown. Yet the wireless network device works properly with my PCs in the house. I need to add another PC and I can't get access to the router to do so.

Perfect.

Your router IP address is http://192.168.3.1

You can access that link in a web browser and continue from there.

If you are searching for the wireless encryption key, you can follow my notes below.



The username will be blank
The password XXXXX admin


To view basic wireless settings:
1- Click the "Wireless" tab at the top area of the web page.
2- Look for "Wireless Network Name (SSID)"




To view encryption settings:

Click the "Wireless" tab at the top area of the web page.

Click the "Wireless Security" button


Let me know if you have any problems and don't forget to click Accept to the right if this solution was helpful.
