Hi there! My name is*****'m sorry that you're having this trouble. It would be my pleasure to assist you. Can you please tell me who your Internet Service Provider is, and the brand and model of your Wifi router?

Spectrum. Asus wireless N750. RT-N65R

Thank you for that information. Please give me just a moment to research.

Ask Your Own Networking Question

Do you have a computer that is connected to this router via ethernet cable? If so, open your browser and type in

192.168.1.1. Press enter. You should be able to login with admin as the username and admin as the password. If that doesn't work and you don't know the password ***** it has been changed to, it will probably be best to reset the wifi router to default settings so we can login and change the wifi password ***** anything else that you may want to change. Please advise.

I am going to reset and start over. Thanks

You're welcome. Just press and hold the reset button for about 10 seconds and it will restart. You can then login with ip 192.168.1.1 and admin and admin for the user name and password. Please let me know if you need any further assistance.
