Hello, I’m Nathan, and I’ll be assisting you today. My livelihood depends on your positive feedback, so your satisfaction is my highest priority. Sorry to hear you’re having trouble. There are a few possible ways to get (or change) your password:1) You can look for a sticker on the back/side of the router, which indicates the factory default (key/passphrase). Note this only works if the password ***** never changed/customized when the router was initially configured2) You can access the router configuration menu via a computer that is already connected to the router, either via wifi or wired ethernet. This lets you view/change the password.3) you can do a factory reset of the router, clearing all settings, and allowing that default password ***** function again. Doing this results in having to update the password ***** all devices.Of these options, I'd suggest #2, but I'll be happy to give more info on any of them. Or, if you aren't comfortable doing so yourself, I can do it for you remotely.

That's okay. But I appreciate it though. I do not have that much money on my card. I am on a budget and my husband only allowe me so much money. But thank you

No that is okay I will just wait on my daughter.
Network Technician: Nathan, System Administrator replied 2 years ago
No problem. Best of luck to you, and feel free to get in touch if you should need any further help.I can send you the step by step info as well for her to follow along, if needed. There is no extra charge for that, it would be covered under our initial chat here:From the address bar of your web browser, go to http://192.168.1.1 (click for link to open in new window) User: blank(empty)Pass: adminThis will log you in to the router admin/configuration page. Look for the Wireless or Wireless Security tab.Here you will see your SSID (network name) and your security/encryption key (password).You can keep that existing password ***** change it to something else if desired. Best regards,Nathan
