The first and third links will not open and the second one takes me to a Qwest page that does not show my password. I still don't know the password.
The first and third links will not open for me. The second one opens to a Qwest setup page that says I am connected to their network, but doesn't show my home network. Still no password.
On the second one, click the local network / home network link, then the wireless link. The password will be displayed there.
This is still the "myqwest" link. Is there no way to find the password for the other network in the queue?
Yes, there is....
Which operating system are you running?
- Click the Start button > Run- Type cmd- Hit Enter- In the black window, type: ipconfig- Press EnterWhat is displayed for the Default Gateway?
I've typed this answer a couple of times but I don't see it....if you get it more than once, I apologize. The numbers for the Default Gateway are 192.168.1.1 which is the same as the first link above. When I try to open that it asks for a user name and password and will not accept "admin and password". That network opens automatically on my laptop, because it was set up that way, but I cannot open it with another computer because I still don't have the password.
Earlier you stated that the 192.168.1.1 address did not work.That means that you changed the router password from password, do you recall what it may be? If not, we must reset the router.You can reset the router by pressing the reset button on the back of the router with a paperclip for 30 seconds. Then wait 60 seconds and follow the instructions below:

Keep me updated.

That link does not work because it requires a password which I don't have. I have no idea when the password might have been changed, not during this attempt to retrieve the password. And the router does not have a reset button. I have tried unplugging it but the same thing still happens. Do you have any other suggestions?
The reset button is on the back of the router. It is a hole (not a button)
You must use a paperclip to press the button inside it.
Nope....The back edge has a little antenna, a power plug, four internet plugs and a yellow ethernet plug. No little hole. The bottom surface is absolutely flat except for four little "feet-like" knobs. No holes.
One centimeter away from the antenna is a small hole.
I have double checked.
I am currently here and am rebooting my computer now.
OK....I pushed a paperclip into that little hole and held it until a light came on inside. I tried to access the 192.168.1.1 site again and it still will not accept the default password. That's why I tried rebooting to see if that helped, but it does not.
Ok, please try it again. Hold the paperclip in the hole for 30 seconds with the power on the router.
I did that and now of course it completely erased the network I was trying to find the password for.
It had to be reset because you didn't have the password to the router.
On a computer that is connected to the router, perform the steps below:- Click the following link ---> http://192.168.1.1Username: adminPassword: password- Click the Wireless settings link
At that page, you can now change the name of the network name and then click the Save button
Then, click the Wireless Security link and enable WPA Personal encryption, then enter an 8 digit password in the passphrase field and click Save.
Please, keep me updated.
It says I need to go into setup wizard before I can use the router.
You can run the wizard if you wish.
Please, complete that.
It's not. It asks for information that I do not have. There are five lines for IP addresses. I assume that one of them is the address I used to log into the router but I have no idea on the others.
What is asking for that?
Cancel the wizard and go back to the main 192.168.1.1 page, please.
I did that.
Now it is setup.
You are online through the router.
You can click the Wireless link and then setup your network name & password.l

Unfortunately, not. I put in the network name and click "apply" and it won't leave that page. There is no place to put a password on that page. And I am apparently not connected through the router, because when I am on the computer that is connected to the router, I can't open any web pages, including this one.
Now it is apparent that you are not on the router, because you told me. I only know if you tell me.
Are you plugged into the router and the modem now?
I cannot communicate with you through the computer on the router, but that computer is on.
I have to come back here to access this page, but that is not on the router.
- Plug the Qwest modem into the WAN plug on the router- Restart the computer- Click the following link ---> http://192.168.1.1Leave the username blankThe default password is: admin- Click the clone Mac Address link- Choose the Enable option- Click the Clone Mac Address button- Click the Save Settings button
Please, do that and let me know when it is complete.
You will be knocked off the Internet, but once you finish the instructions, you will be back online.
Once you are back, please let me know and we will setup your wireless network and finish.
