When you setup the router, you should have setup a password ***** be able to connect to the wireless router. That is the password ***** is asking for. There may have been a default password ***** on it. Please let me know the model number of the router so I can tell you how to get the default password.

Unfortunately, this modem/router doesn't have a default password ***** which means that it was most likely setup by your Internet Provider. Although you can reset the modem yourself, it may not have the correct settings for your Internet Provider.

You may want to check on the modem itself, as sometimes the password ***** configure is written on the modem/router, and you can then try using that password ***** the printer.

If not, you will need to contact your Internet provider to have the modem reset with a new password.

Please let me know if you need any more help with this. If I answered your question, please provide a positive rating.
