How To Know If Netgear Router Is Password-protected
Oct 24, 2012
My monthly internet allocation has recently been getting used up far more quickly than I expect it should. I am wondering if someone unauthorised is using my wireless facility. I do not remember ever applying a password to this facility. How would I find out it if has password protection?
Model wrt54gsWindows xpI got the wireless network setup and password protected and my computer and phone can sign o the wireless network, but when I try to go to a website it doesn't work. If I connect te computer directly to the modem then it works.
My E4200 settings show both the 5.8GHZ and 2.4GHZ channels to be active, with SSID's displayed. However, when I look for available networks via my laptop(s)/tablets, etc, only the 2.8GHZ channel is visible. I've tried changing various settings and even updated the firmware but nothing has changed.
In addition my "guest" portal displays as not being password protected, even though it is setup for password protection in the E4200 menu.I've rebooted the router several times, but nothing has changed. The 5.8GHZ channel is not visible.The router is also performing frequent random disconnects, but that appears to be a separate issue, based on other posts.
I noticed my connection to my school's WiFi was abnormally poor, so I went into the preferences in an attempt to fix my atrocious connection. In doing so, I accidentally checked some box, and I am prompted with an "enter user credentials" message, or some crap like that. The network itself isn't password-protected, so this is a problem within MY computer. Allow me to reiterate my issue in case there was any ambiguity. I accidentally checked some box that put a password on a normally non-password-protected network.
Running three systems, Win 7, XP Media and a Vista system. My problem is with the Vista system. I need to share an external USB drive with the other two systems. Access from either of the other two systems is not allowed, get "Logon Failure: the user has not been granted logon type at this computer" Attempts to turn off "Password Protected Sharing" in the Net and Sharing Center do not work. Click OFF and then Apply results in returning to the ON status. I don't even get a request for a password on the other systems when attempting to map the drive that is on the Vista system. The Vista system is running with no windows password required.
I am not able to connect to password protected network while others get connected to the network and are using it.even if it gets connected it shows no internet access. I tried troubleshooting and it said no valid ip configuration.
Since I upgraded to the latest firmware I can only use the USB storage sharing when "Access shared storage with password" is left UNCHECKED. If I check the box I can no longer see the storage shares in Windows 7. I have also tried "\tploginlink.net" in the Run box, and it connects but shows me no mounted volumes. Also, Is it possible to set up more than two user accounts in addition to "admin" and "guest"?
I shared some folders in my C drive and turned off password protected sharing in the network and sharing centre from control panel. However, when I use my Seagate FreeAgent Theatre + to access the files shared online, it keeps asking me to log in with a username and password. How to I disable this?
I have reset and rebooted my netgear wireless router. it told me set up was successful yet even though it tells me I am connected I still am unable to access the internet. It also shows an exclamation over my connection bars. How can i fix this? This all started when I was trying to access my router from a new laptop. I could not remember my security key. I reset and erased what I had stored. Have made a new but still no internet access.
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 )
When adding a device that has a web protected setup button, can I use the web protected setup button on my Linksys E2000 router to set up the device even though I setup up my router using the Manual setup on the Web Interface configuration?
I just installed my Linksys E1000 and it seemed really easy. I allows the Guest Option, named the Network and put in a network Password. When I try to connect the phone, I don't get the screen on the phone that asks for the PW. I can connect as a guest, but it does connect with out even asking the guest password.
When the Wrt600N came out, it was said that the "Reserved" button would be enabled by a future firmware upgrade to support WiFi Protected Setup. Surely in the three or so years this has come to pass.Does anyone have a link to information on using WPS with the WRT600n?
I have bought a new WRT54G2 router since the old one broke down. When I log into the 192.168...and click wireless, it takes me to this window that says Searching for your Client Device....If you haven't clicked wi-fi protected setup button please do so now. It's stuck at 98% and I click on the bottom middle button with the 2 arrows constantly and nothing is happening.
when we got a wireless router we didn't have a laptop. the tech, secured the wi-fi and wrote down the password, my husband misplaced it, now i have a tablet and i am un able to connect to the internet(wi-fi) so how can i find out the password or reset it without the old password?
