how can i login into my router to change security password XXXXX i can connect wirelessly?

hello,

you can normally access your router by going to this address http://192.168.1.1 in an internet browser from a computer that is directly wired to the router. then you will need to enter the password, this will depend on the model router you have but it is usually username: admin and password: admin or password: password

 

if neither work let me know the model router you have and then I can give you the specific login.

 

once in the router there will be a "wireless" tab and you can set the password XXXXX the security section.

maybe but that was 2+ years ago. i have tried that wep, and it doesnot work.


 

If you cannot remember your old login than you will need to reset the router back to default and create the wireless network again.

On the back or bottom of your router you should find a small pin sized reset button.

how to reset a router
  • While your router is plugged in, press and hold your router's reset button for 30 seconds. You may have to use a paperclip or pin to press your router's reset button.

  • You should notice your router's lights flicker and flash. That is an indication that your hard reset is taking effect.

  • After you've held your router's reset button down for 30 full seconds, allow the router to reboot. (Just leave your router alone for a few minutes and allow it to gather itself.)

Now you can log into your router using --

 

username: admin

password: 1234

 

You will need to create your wireless network again

both pcs are going to be offline, correct.. cell phone is XXXXXXXXXX /p>

Yes, that is correct.

If you are hardwired into the router then it will reconnect after the reboot.
