Hi techyv experts,

I have a router that is currently giving me wireless connectivity throughout my house. This router has been working for several months now but I never knew that I would need to have a password in order to connect my laptop wirelessly. How would I find out what my password is?

Regards

So your network is never secured. Neighbours who were able to access and connect to your network were so lucky. They were able to use your wireless connection for free and so convenient. It is time to secure your network.

What you need to do is access the settings of your router and configure the WEP ( Wired Equivalent Privacy ) or the network security. If you do not have the access, you can check online, depending on the brand of your router. Another option is for you to contact your routers' technical support team for assistance. If your router is still under warranty then they can assist you setting up a password for your network, for it to be safe.

Are you already connected to your router? If so, right click on your net connections, click on properties. Find your network password and click on the checkbox that says 'show router password'.

To check the network security password, you need to have Internet access. You'll need to log-in to the router internal settings. Different type of router uses different type of IP Address and log-in credentials. My advise is to contact your ISP or router manufacturers and ask for these information.

What you need to do is to open the Internet Explorer then type 192.168.1.1 in the address bar. It'll display the router log-in page and type the log-in credentials provided by router manufacturer. Most router manufacturer uses admin for username and admin for password but some uses password for password.

Whatever it works for you, try these information and or do a research on the Internet to know what is the correct log-in for the type of router you are using.

Go to Wireless tab and click wireless security. Look for WEP or WPA and it'll be on the either Key 1 or pass phrase field.

This is the network security set-up for your wireless router.
