Asus Wireless Router - No Password To Protect Internet?

Jun 8, 2012

I have an asus wireless router the router lost connection for a few days and when Internet came back there was no password to protect Internet and was just basically open access. The computer which all the Internet setting are on went away for repair. When the man brought it back after backing up the computer I asked him to put the password back on the Internet. This he has done. We entered the new passwords on our iPhones and they connected and worked no problem. Then we tried to do it with our laptops but they won't connect. Phoned the bloke back he said we had to get the laptops to forget all the old settings for the router and it would on take five minutes but he never told us how to do it.

Linksys Wireless Router :: Can't Reset Password On WRT54G

Jul 4, 2007

I have changed the router username/password in the past and either I can't remember it or its not accepting what I am entering, because the router logon will not go through. I have unplugged the router for 5 mins and then let it come back on and still cant get in, pressed the reset button down and let it come back up still nothing, and I have unplugged the cable modem and router for five mins and then plugged them both back up and I still can't get the router to reset to the default admin password. In the past it has worked before but now nothing I try will let me into the router interface to set up anything.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Password Not Working?

Apr 24, 2011

I have  a Lynksys WRT54G wireless router.  It works just fine until I try to put a password on it.  I go through the basic steps, it talkes all my information and tells me everything is good.  I try to sign on the internet and it tells me my password is invalid....and YES Im sure its the right password I entered.  I went to and did all the necessary instructions, and still, it doesn't work. I can change my network name and it works.  As long as I leave it unprotected, everything works fine, but when I add the password, it tells me its invalid.  I even used 123456 so as to make sure it was the right one.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Lost User Name And Password

Jun 19, 2011

I haven't used my Linksys WRT54G v5 wireless router for about 1 1/2 years and needed it now at a new place.I set a user name and password I've long forgotten for access to the web based security protocols for the modem and I've lost the disk for the control protocol program.I tried pressing the reset button to clear the modem and it took the WPA protocol off the modem so I can use it without any security but that's not a good thing.How do I get it freed up so I can get to the security protocols and put security back on my modem?

Linksys Wireless Router :: Wrt54g V2 Reset Button Not Resetting Password?

May 13, 2013

I was given this router (it's my 3rd one) and cannot get the reset button to reset the password. I have run throught a 30/30/30 reset as well as just holding the button in for the standard 30 seconds.
I know the router works, as in i can ping it. It asks for a password when i go to, but *blank* and "admin" do not work. When i click the cancel button it displays a pink(salmon) screen that says "401 Unauthorized Authrization required". (all of this is when i am connected to it with an ethernet cable to #1)
When it's sitting there it has an led lit over power and one ove wlan which flickers from time to time.

Linksys Wireless Router :: WRT54G - Password For Access Router's Web Utility?

Aug 10, 2008

I have tried multiple times to hard reset my Wireless G WRT54G ver.2 router, but have had no success. I held the reset for 15 sec, 30 sec, 2 min, etc and also tried holding it and then unplugging it and then plugging it back in. I've tried everything that I have seen suggested. My problem is that I don't know what the password is to access my router's web utility thing and I need to change the IP address. With every reset attempt, I hope that the default admin password will work, but sadly no.

I've tried the password my DSL company gave me along with various other things like admin etc. After I enter the password I hit enter and it just asks me for the password over and over again.

How to get into the Engenius access point and password protect it?

D-Link DIR-600 :: How To Protect Network Password From Wireless Desktop Adapter

Oct 30, 2011

I am making my wireless network with Wireless router DIR-600 and DWA-525 desktop adapters for my office. I created a most secured type of network WPA2. And I have to create profile for DWA-525 desktop adapter to connect to my network and it requires the network secret key to connect. But This secret key is viewable from the "Network connection manager" when one can click on modify network and click on "Show text in the password field" by everyone using this computer (I mean by all other office staff). I don't want to let any one know my wireless network secret key. Is there any way to protect the key while having the computers automatically connected to wireless network. More information is below

Model: DWA-525
Hardware Version: A1
Firmware Version: 1.10
Operating System: Windows 7
Service Pack: 1

Nov 18, 2011

I have a linksys E3000 and a WD My Book World Edition 2. (WDMBWE2)What i want is to access my WD from any where. I have tried setting up a simple single port forward to the WDMBWE2, which worked great. I was able to view all my files from anywhere.however, i wasn't prompted for any basically anyone could access and modify all my data.I have obviously deactivated this again.
I have already tried setting up user accounts on my WDMBWE2 to try and solve this, but that only creates the problem of my TV and music player not being able to access it anymore(they both cant type in login information).Is there any way to make the E3000 prompt me a for login/password when requesting that port?

D-Link DIR-615 :: Unable To Password Protect Network?

Feb 28, 2011

I will try to explain my problem as clear as possible but my knowledge about networks and routers is very limited.

I have a DIR-615 version:C1 firmware:3.13NA My ISP is ATT DSL Modem is Siemens SpeedStream 4100, it does not have a router built in Internet line is connected from wall to modem, to router, to PC.

after I upgraded the firmware I had no internet coming out of the router, I bypassed the router and connected straight to the PC and I got internet. I unplugged the power on both modem and router waited a whole night (I was too tired) and in the morning internet was back to PC and I had WIFI again BUT. When I put a password on the WIFI network all my stuff finds the signal but cannot connect, if I open the signal meaning if I have no password and the WIFI is open I can connect all of my electronics without any problems.

I already tried using WEP and WPA but still unable to connect anything, I been leaving my signal open when I'm at home for the last week and I don't like it.

Before the update everything worked fine.

I don't know if this matters but I have a PS3, Wii, Roku box, Laptop and a couple cell phones connected to it. And there are like 6 or 7 network signals close to my house.
