I have a netgear router. My iPad & laptop connect fine, when it was installed the contractor set it up. I do not know the name of my network or my password. I am trying to access my own Wi Fi on other devices and also for visitors. I am not computer literate at all. If anyone has any advice it would be much appreciated.
1)Open the web browser that you use: Firefox,Google Chrome,IE,or Opera and type in the IP address for your router,and press the Enter key. http://www.routeripaddress.com/< Router ip addresses can be found here
2)A window will open and then type in your routers default username and password,and press the Enter key again http://www.routerpasswords.com/< Router usernames and passwords found here ***** Username and Password may also be located on the side or bottom of your router *****
3)Navigate to the Wireless Security\Network Security Settings Tab and open to locate or change your WEP or WPA Security Passphrase. Use WPA because it provides better security.
4)Write this Security Passphrase down and put it in a safe place to access when needed.
