Networking Extraordinaire :

The default username is admin
The default password XXXXX password

Networking Extraordinaire :

If that does not allow you in, the only option you have is to reset your router, which is done by pressing and holding the reset button on the router for 20 seconds. Then you can login with the default username & password.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Once you reset it, you may have to reconfigure your router to get online. If you are running cable, you will not have to configure anything further.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Please, update me on your status if you have any problems or questions.

Hello

Networking Extraordinaire :

Is your internet connection DSL or CABLE?

JACUSTOMER-evdadjie- :

It's a DSL. I tried the admin and password XXXXX got me in. But I tried to connect my wife's kindle to it and it says the connection does not work. I'm I doing something wrong

Networking Extraordinaire :

After logging into the router, click the Wireless Settings > Security link.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Verify that you are connecting to the correctly named signal and you are using the passcode that is displayed on that page.

JACUSTOMER-evdadjie- :

okay I will try that.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Ok, please update me once you have completed that.

JACUSTOMER-evdadjie- :

the kindle still doesn't seem to connect. Do you have any other suggestions?.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Does it ask for a password XXXXX you try and connect?

JACUSTOMER-evdadjie- :

yes. and I type in the word password XXXXX it says it doesn't connect

Networking Extraordinaire :

Ok

Networking Extraordinaire :

On the router, disable the encryption and click the Apply settings button.

Then try and connect again.

JACUSTOMER-evdadjie- :

I tried that and it still doesn't work. Maybe there's a problem with the kindle

On the Kindle, when you view the available wireless signals, do you see yours?

JACUSTOMER-evdadjie- :

Networking Extraordinaire :

Do you have any security functions enabled on the router? Perhaps, MAC Filtering?

JACUSTOMER-evdadjie- :

no i don't see that option.

Networking Extraordinaire :

Under Wireless Settings, click on ‘Setup Access List’

Networking Extraordinaire :

Is the checkbox "Turn Access Control On" checked or unchecked?

JACUSTOMER-evdadjie- :
