How to find the key or password:

Please, follow these steps on the computer(like your desktop computer) which is connected to the router using an ethernet cable. However, if you have only laptop, please connect an extra cable from router to laptop

To find the key on the D-Link router, you will next need to open a web browser and type
http://www.192.168.0.1

You should see the administration screen of the D-link router. type in
admin and leave the password ***** blank.

A setup wizard should appear, prompting you to first change the router’s password. Pick something you can remember or you can simply ignore this and change it later.

Under Wireless, please check your security key and use this key to connect to wireless.

Please click the ACCEPT button as this is how I earn my living and get paid for my time, work and efforts. You will not be anything extra. It is promise. Bonus and positive feedback will be highly appreciated.

This did not work. I went to my desktop and entered http://www.192.168.0.1 and the web browser came back saying "Internet Explorer cannot display the webpage". What else can I try?

Network Technician: sandy, Networking Engineer replied 6 years ago
Please go to the desktop comptuer.
Launch your browser say internet explorer.
Delete everything from the address bar(the box that starts with http generally)
and type 192.168.0.1 and hit enter.

Thanks.
