  1. If you don't know your password for wifi you will have to connect by ethernet and login to the router settings page to get the password. If you are unable to connect by ethernet or do not know the login for your routers settings page you can do a factory reset on the router by pressing the reset button for 30 - 45 seconds. It's generally a small paperclip size hole on the back. If you are still having difficulty with it we may be able to help more if we know the brand and model number of your router.
  2. You can go to the web site of the brand of router that you have and retrieve the default user name and password so that after you reset your router to factory condition you will be able to enter the router and make a new security key and this time write it down and keep it someplace where you can access it when needed.



  3. 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

    3)Navigate to the Wireless Security\Network Security Settings Tab and open it 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.
