Customer Question

I have an older Trendnet router ( TEW-691GR ). I am attempting to get Netflix sent to my smart tv. Before I moved, I had a direct cable connection to the router and the tv picked up the connection with no problem. Now I have a dish internet service and must set up the connection manually. The connection set-up requires a password ***** connect.
Trendnet wants me to pay $39.00 to receive my password ***** said I could get it free on line. Can you help me with this or point me in the right direction?

Also for the username and password, try admin as the user, and then try a blank password.

You will not have to ask another question we can continue on this one. As far as a WPA passphrase, you need to log in to the router. This is where the username and password ***** come in to play. How do I reset the router to factory default settings?Press and hold in the reset button on the back of the router for approximately 15 seconds while the power is on. The default values are as follows. IP Address: Username: admin Password: Leave blank SSID: TRENDnet or TRENDnet691 Encryption: none ...

After you follow these steps, you will log into the router by using your browser and going to - adminpassword [BLANK]There, you can reconfigure your WPA key, along with other router settings.
