Networking Extraordinaire :

Greetings,

Welcome to Just Answer.

My name is Jason and I will be the expert working with you today to help resolve your problem.


Basically, you can add a new computer to your wireless network by clicking the wireless icon, choosing your wireless signal, on the list, and entering any wireless password you may have.

Networking Extraordinaire :

If you need to retrieve that wireless password, you can do so by following the instructions below:

On a computer that is connected to the router, perform the steps below:
- Click the following link ---> http://192.168.1.1
Username: admin
Password: admin
- Click the Wireless link (your network name is displayed here)
- Click the Wireless security link (your wireless password is displayed here)

Networking Extraordinaire :

You may click the Accept button on the bottom right of your screen & click Ok now and leave any feedback for me that you feel is appropriate.

Thank you,
- Jason

Hello

Networking Extraordinaire :

Do those instructions make sense?

Networking Extraordinaire :

How is that coming along?

Networking Extraordinaire :

Once you click the Accept button and the resulting Ok button, your deposit that you have already been charged, will be released. I only I get credit from the website or get paid for my time if you click the Accept button and then click Ok.

Customer :

Networking Extraordinaire :

Oh ok.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Are you following those instructions on a computer that plug into the router with the cable?

Networking Extraordinaire :

If you wish, I can remote into your computer and obtain this information for you.

Customer :

Networking Extraordinaire :

It will take me about 10 minutes to get the remote session up and running.
