D-Link DIR-655 :: Lost Network Security Key - Password Not Accepted

Jul 23, 2011

I got a D-Link router not too long ago and I set it up in an odd way, the router password I gave it during the setup would not be accepted but the Network Security Key (the randomly generated alphaneumeric code) was accepted.  I used it to connect all of my wifi devices.

The router password (which doesn't work), the "network name (SSID)", the network security type, and the network security key were all saved on my desktop.  My computer has since suffered a critical crash and had to have it's hard drive erased.  I still remember the password, the network name, and the security type.  But the NSK (the thing I need to connect in place of a password) has been lost.  It was this long random string of letters and numbers that I couldn't remember for the life of me.

I also remembered my Admin password, so I am able to log into, but in here I only know how to change the regular password.  I don't know how to access or change the NSK.  change the security setting so that I can use the actual password instead of the NSK? Because of the crash I lost my iTunes libraries so I'm going to have to reset all my iOS devices, which are primarily what I use wifi on.  If I reset them, they'll forget the wifi network and the assosiated NSK password, so I won't be able to use wifi at all.

D-Link DIR-655 :: Wi-Fi Signal Strong - Password Not Accepted

Jun 28, 2011

I bought this router (DIR-655) some time earlier this year, so it hasn't even been half a year that I've owned the thing.  I set it up in the small duplex I was sharing with my sister and it worked quite well.  Actually... for the first 45 minutes I was freaking out because I was getting practically no signal, then I realized I had forgotten to screw in the antennas... but that little anecdote aside, it worked fine.

I've since moved into a new place.  I got a new modem, still on Videotron, I just upped the speed from 7 MB/sec to 15 MB/sec.  Before setting up the router I inserted the CD that came with it and followed the instructions therein... things seemed fine, except that he automatically used the same network name that I used at my last place... almost like he was stuck on it.  I couldn't figure out how to create a fresh new network.  But  I shrugged it off and continued, entering my own password and everything else.

Now, at the end he gave me 4 pieces of information,

A router password. A network name (SSID), this is the one who's name was stuck to the old one. A network security type, I went for Most secure(WPA) And the network security key, this was a randomly generated alphanumeric code of some sort.

I copied this in two different ways and the installation wizard automatically saved me a copy onto the desktop, so I know for certain I got the passwords right.  I pulled out my iPad later, saw the network, a good strong signal, and tried to connect except it's not accepting my password.  The password I triple-saved and checked without a shadow of a doubt.  On a whim I tried to use the Security Key, and that seemed to connect for some reason, but it is considerably slower than it was at my last place.

The modem isn't to blame (it's running on double the speed now) and the signal strength is good.  It's just that something gone weird with the password, and it feels very slow.  Even if it wasn't slow, I would really like to know why none of my wifi devices are accepting the password I assigned.

And I used that trick to look into the router settings from my computer.  I changed the network password into something new.  And still none of the devices will connect, they keep telling me it's the wrong password.  I am only able to connect through the Security Key and I don't like that!  I tried to contact D-Link's technical support the other day, but it drew on for so long my cellphone actually ran out of minutes. 

Short Version: None of my wifi devices are accepting the password I gave during the setup and I don't know why!

I'm running a 64-bit Windows 7 on 1-year old dual-core desktop computer.

Password Not Accepted On Wireless Network

Dec 15, 2012

Trying to get internet on a very old PC. It's an old PC. But it's for an 8 year old. I just formatted the PC. Ethernet card was recognized. Not showing any issues in the device manager either. But when I choose my WN from the WNL and click connect, my password doesn't seem to work. It looks like it's connecting, but never does?

Linksys Wired Router :: BEFSR41v3 Enable UPnP / Password Not Accepted

Jun 30, 2007

I have a BEFSR41v3 and am trying to enable UPnP on the router. However, after I activate UPnP in my browser and the webpage reloads (after the common status screen that says you have to wait 5 seconds and you will be redirected). I am prompted for a password. But for some reason, it will not accept any password that I enter. In order to even get to the settings to UPnP in the first place, you must enter the correct password to access the settings. So I believe I am using the correct password, so why is it not accepting the correct password? I have had to reset my router to factory default settings (by pressing and holding the reset button for 30 seconds) multiple times because of this. But each time after enabling UPnP it will not accept the default password of admin nor will it accept any password that I assign it afterwards. I have noticed however that the "Filter Internal NAT Redirection" which should be set to enabled by default has been set to disabled even after I have reset the router. I have activated UPnP on the router before without trouble but have had to reset the router to factory default settings afterwards because of other reasons.

Home Network :: Netgear Router WNR 2000 V3 - Cannot Access Internet When Security Password Chosen?

Apr 13, 2013

I just bought a Netgear Router WNR 2000 v3 and installed it. I got inside the router and could set up a Network Name and security key. However, I can not access the internet when I chose a security password using WPA 2, WPA-PSK + WPA 2 PSK, or WPA/WPA 2. It only accesses the internet when I chose None.( no secured ).At this time, my network is unsecured because there isn't way I can access the internet when I create a security key using the 3 options the router offers.

Note : I have tried the 3 security options creating a key number and my computer connect to the wireless network but don't access the internet. It only access the internet when I select None ( no secured )
