Find or Change Your Internet Security Passphrase


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.

5)Save settings and close your browser.

If you can't remember the wireless key then push the reset button in the rear of the router for 10 seconds and it will reset the router to factory condition and you can then use the generic factory user name and password to enter the router internal settings and create a new security key.

raydelta, ignore inzone's suggestion i y ou're a UK poster because you may have ISP specific login details in there which would be wiped out if you reset it to factory settings.

Stick to SR-71 Blackbird's advice or read the Sticky Post at the top of this sub-Forum list. http://www.tomshardware.co.uk/forum/38111-18-find-chang...
