When i access my router via and set my password to the password i want it saves the pass but for some reason on no computer i am able to connect with that password. Router is a Linksys/Cisco Wireless-B router.

Preferred Solution: Router pass not working

I recommend downloading and running Reimage. It's a computer repair tool that has been proven to identify and fix many Windows problems with a high level of success.

I've used it in the past to identify and fix everything from blue screens (BSOD's), ActiveX errors, corrupt files and processes, dll/exe/sys errors, recover lost memory, Windows update problems, defragging, malware removal etc.

You can download it direct from this link http://downloadreimage.com/download.php. (This link will automatically start a download of Reimage that you can save to your computer.)

A: Router pass not working

Are you talking about two different passwords? One to access the administration and settings pages of the router and a different password that is the encryption key for the wireless connections?

That's a different subnet and you would need something else to handle the routing between that router and the device that you want to get the 192.x.x.x address.

I have a westell 327 router and connected to verizon dsl. I want to secure my wireless broadcasting and (1) cant get to the router because I dont have the user and passcode and (2) need help in securing the broadcast.

A:router user and pass word

why do you not have the user name and password of the router - if its still default, it will be in the manual

otherwise you may need to reset to factory defaults - probably a button on the back, BUT BEFORE you do that make sure you know all the setups - if ADSL then you will need the username and password of your account with the ISP

A:Pass word for Router D-Link

log into the router configuration page -
then go to the wireless configuration section and put a wireless security password in - if all your wireless devices support WPA2 use that - the best way to find out is to enable WPA2 and see if they all connect ok

I'm trying to setup a VPN at my office.

My ISP provided a DSL Gateway configured with my static IP address. I can ping this device from home, so I know that much is working.

My VPN router is plugged into this Gateway. Consequently, my VPN router has an IP address that makes it part of my internal network. Initially, I thought I would set my router to use my static IP address, but that will not work since I cannot take the Gateway out of the picture.

I think I need to use Port Forwarding to get the Gateway to pass the VPN requests to the Router. Is this correct? I need to know if I'm going in the right direction, because I believe I will have to upgrade the firmware on the gateway in order to configure port forwarding in it. I want to know if I'm on the right track.

Here are the full descriptions of the pieces I'm working with:
Actiontec GT701-WG Wireless-Ready DSL Gateway (provided by ISP)
Linksys WRV200 Wireless-G VPN Router (my VPN router)

And this is how my network is chained together:
ISP -> DSL Gateway -> VPN Router -> Switch -> Desktops & Server

First and foremost I am not a computer person but I am having a problem. I bought a XBOX for my grandson and want to connect it to the internet for him. It wont connect without a WPA2 pass phrase. I tried entering to access the router but it wont go though. I contacted Linksys and of course they said my router needed to be reconfigured at a cost. Can anyone help me to find out what the WPA2 pass phrase is so I can get this done for my grandbaby before he drives me crazy. Please keep it simple because I am a simple man. Thanks guys!

Hi, since a few days I cannot access my pc using single pass.Very strange indeed, as I've passed through any kind of OS upgrades (e.g. win 8 to 8.1, to Win 10, to Win 10.1..) without any problem... I've tried to update BIOS, Single Pass sw Update, uninstall, re-install, drivers update, but the result is just the same.... My account access options actually don't recognize any chance to use fingerprint as they probably don't see related HW drivers... Can you help me, please? Kind regards

Hi All, I would suggest you read my old post here first:

Anyhow, where I work we have a single DR PC what has our basic company software/programs on and is imaged, and then deployed out to a large multiple of identical PC's at our disaster recovery facility in the event when needed. Our DR facility is connected
to our AD domain.
The DR PC's we use are HP EliteDesk 800G2 Desktop Mini's and have Windows 7 Pro x64 on them.  Now capturing and restoring the image is not an issue and is is done via PXE booting using Symantic Ghost.

I have two major issues that need to be resolved very soon as we have a DR test coming up in a couple of months where we push the image out to a large number of identical PC's and test everything down in DR.

Issue 1: When ever sysprep is run with the "/generalize" option, windows fails to boot/reboot. Just get
a black screen in a continuous re-booting loop. Not even any error message, absolutely nada is shown! 
Maybe it's got something to do with he ultra modern hardware/chipset/platform of the HP EliteDesk G2; all USB port are USB3 and the boot drive is a NVMe SSD.
To resolve this issue, I have to restore the image to the DR PC via PXE.
And Yes I have the following in my Autounattend.xml file under the

Hi All,
I tested the following attacks in Microsoft Advanced Threat Analytics and found them
not to be working.

Bruteforce Attack Pass-The-Ticket Pass-The-Hash Sensitive account exposed Using Plain-Text Authentication
I have tested other attacks like Reconnaissance
using DNS, Broken Trust, Honey Token account suspicious activities but they are working perfectly fine. I don't know
what's the issue with the above 4.
1. Bruteforce Attack:
I used thc-hydra-windows and triggered a dictionary attack using a list of passwords.

2. Pass-The-Ticket:
I used mimikatz to steal the kerberos ticket from a PC on which Admin is logged on. Impersonating an attacker, I copied the .kirbi file and Injected that file(using mimikatz again) to another PC on which a domain user is logged in.

3. Pass-The-Hash:
(Same as above)
4. Sensitive account exposed in plain text authentication:
I used mimikatz command 'sekurlsa :: logonpasswords' and was able to get passwords of all the users who logged on to that PC. But this was also not detected by MATA.

Please help me with the above issues. If possible, provide the tools using which I can trigger and detect those attacks.

I have recently installed ATA (1.8.6645.28499). It is now in to the second week of its learning phase and it is raising a considerable number of false pass-the-hash alerts when users initiate Citrix sessions from their usual PC using pass-thru authentication,
eg a typical alert would be:
Bloggs,Fred's hash was stolen from one of the computers previously logged into by Bloggs,Fred and used from xx1234
Clearly this is spurious - in each case the user is initiating a Citrix session from their
own PC and the xx1234 represents a Citrix server in the farm in every case.
1) Why am I only receiving a handful of related PTH alerts each day when I have many thousands of Citrix users, all authenticating in the same manner?
2) How can I supress these alerts?
What I effectively want to say is 'IF the suspected PTH is being triggered BY the user on their OWN PC and the target server is in our Citrix farm' then ignore it. I can't see a way of setting an exclusion range like this for PTH events though?

I have a significant problem with my computers not recognizing my d-link router. I screwed something up today and now my router won't work. I have had the router for years working just fine, but today I was trying to connect a new kindle which wouldn't connect to the Wi-Fi and I lost the router after screwing around with configuration.

Basically I've been trying to re-install the router, I changed the SSID but it appears the d-link quick router setup software recognizes the modem as the router and won't re-intall my router thus denying me access. Has anyone ever ran into a situation such as this? Please help...

A:D-Link Software recognizing modem as Router, router not working

Find the reset switch (usually a smal hole and you press a paper clip into it for ~5sec).

That will bring it back to day-1 default settings.

Unless you are attaching to the modem/router using USB, there's no software to be installed
(that's only used for USB) - -
just cable the eithernet cable to a LAN port on the router and then you can configure it

Hello, I was wondering if it was possible to set up a wireless router along with a regular wired router. What I'm trying to do here is make it so that my wired router connects with the modem and the wireless router connects with the regular router. So, it's like a router ontop of a router. The reason I want to do this, is because I want to set up a network where all the computers with the exception of one, are wired. Then just have that one computer go off of the wireless router. If I can't do this (Which I'm sure I most definitely cannot.), then can I get a network hub and have the modem and the two routers connected to that hub? Thanks for reading this,

does the PC work if you connect to the router by a cable ?
if not
try connecting directly to the modem and see if that works OK

If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to copy the program across to the faulty PC

Then run and install the program

Hi, I have a netgear WNDR3400 100nar router, dual band, 2.4ghz and 5ghz. I set up 2 connections. On the 2.4ghz I set up a WEP connection with 64 bit encryption for my wireless repeater (WNR2000). On the 5ghz i set up WPA2 for regular use. Unfortunately my computer does not support 5ghz or atleast i dont think it does. My samsung tv picks up the 5ghz so I connected to that, the macbook pro connects to the 5ghz. The other computer I want on the 2.4 ghz with the repeater. Hardlined via ethernet anything and everything works. For some reason 2.4ghz wont connect wirelessly and does not even give me the option to enter the hex key. just says unable to connect. the 2.4 doesn't work on anything (currently the repeater is offline until I can fix this issue). Infact, ignore the repeater info. I think there is a problem with the distribution of the IP addresses. Could they be overlapping between the 2.4 and the 5? The next item on the network (tv) using 5ghz, occupies sequence 2 under the ip address....whatever the default is it would occupy I have reformatted my computer, uninstalled and reinstalled network drivers, as much as I could do with the computer itself so I'm assuming it is the router. I've disconnected it and reconnected it, reset it, redone the whole network multiple times, renewed the IP address. What is going on? Can anyone help me please.

Hi I'm kind of new to this so please bear with me.

I currently have 3 computers in the house that are connected through a wired connection. The internet is provided by Comcast and we have a 5 port wired router as well. The modem supplies the internet and then the modem is connected to an uplink on the port switch. On the routerthere's 1 ethernet cable to the main computer, 1 to another computer, 1 to the Xbox 360, and another to a wireless adapter type of thing.

Now all the lights are on and the activity light is blinking like it always is but the internet is still only working on the main computer. So it says everything is working but its not. I've called Comcast and they said there's no problems and that the connection should be working fine and its just a problem with my router.

I've tried the power cycle and it would usually work but this time around nothing's been working. Tried resetting the modem and it doesn't fix it.

Need help to get the internet working on all the other computers! Please and thanks

A:Internet is only working on one computer, but router says its working on all?

The following procedure should get you a connection with any broadband modem that is configured to use DHCP for the router connection, such as cable modems, and many DSL modems. If you require PPPoE configuration for the DSL modem, that will have to be configured to match the ISP requirements.

Note that the wireless encryption and channel selection will have to be done after the basic wired connection is established, the first step is to get wired connections working.

Reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button down for 15 seconds with power on.
Turn off everything, the modem, router, computer.
Connect the modem to the router's WAN/Internet port.
Connect the computer to one of the router's LAN/Network ports.
Turn on the modem, wait for a steady connect light.
Turn on the router, wait for two minutes.
Boot the computer.

When the computer is completely booted, let's see this.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD (COMMAND for W98/WME) to open a command prompt:

Hello bhvm,

Verify that in your TP-Link router, the IP Scope is setup as 192.168.1.X same as in your D-Link router. Also, check the ports configured needed for your IP camera in the TP-Link router. You might want to compare the ports opened from D-Link.

A:Help~ router not working

For now, lets take the router out of the picture and make sure your cable works.

Try connecting your computer directly to the cable modem and restart the computer.

Can you connect to the Internet. If so then you know at least the cable modem and the computer's network card, configuration and cable are working.

Then reconnect the cable modem to the WAN port on the router and the computer back to the Ethernet port on the router.

Turn everything off

Power on the cable modem and wait a minute or so.
Power on the router and wait a minute or so.
Power on the computer

Then check the status again on the router.

Hi, Hope this is pretty simple, I just reinstalled windows so everything was wiped and set up again with a cleaner registry anyway.

But this time around ZoneAlarm is picking up a lot of the hits where as last time I ran lots of tests and ZA only picked up the stuff going out which is good, and I was given stealth teset results. But do I have to reset and then reinstall the router as well for it to work properly? Thanks for any help. Carla

First you should check whether it is your router failing or the internet connection itself. Next time your connection dies, try accessing the router setup page and check the internet connection status there.

Hello. I just bought a new wireless router, but it isn't working. My Android-based phone detects the wireless router and connects succesfuly to it, but when I started the Internet browser I received a Connection Error message. I also tried to connect my computer (running Windows 7 Ultimate) to the router using an ethernet cable but I received the same error.

The model of the router is : Linksys E1200

A:New router, not working

from the computer with a cable connection can we see an ipconfig /all

ipconfig /all
If you cannot access the internet with this PC, then you will need to paste the results into something like notepad and then copy onto a machine that can access the internet and post the results in a reply here.
Save the file to a USB flash drive or other removable media. Plug it into the working computer with internet access and copy the file and paste here.

We would like to see the results from an ipconfig /all - post back the results in a reply here.

Hold the Windows key and press R, then type CMD then press Enter to open a command prompt box
(A new dialogue box - black with white font, will appear on screen ):

In the command prompt window that opens, type the following command:

Note that there is a space before the /ALL, but there is NOT a space after the / in the following command.

ipconfig /all > network.txt & network.txt

It will export the results into notepad and then automatically open the notepad and display on your screen.

Now all you need to do is copy and paste those results into a reply here
to do that:
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Select all
all the text will now be highlighted
From the notepad menu - choose Edit - Copy

Now go back to the forum - goto the reply and then right click in the reply box and paste the results.
The results from the notepad should now appear in... Read more

My modem just stopped working(after 7 years) so I bought a new Netgear N300 modem-router. It's all set and working properly but I have one question? I don't need my 2 y.o. (Dlink DWR116) router any more, so I was just wandering, can it be of any use? Don't want to sell it for a few bucks, so any suggestion is more than welcome.

I have had an SMC7004ABR Barricade Router for about 5 months.

It has been working perfectly until recently. All of a sudden, it does not detect or connect my two computers.

I have my internet set up like this...
``````````````````` \---------->COMPUTER #2

My internet (Rogers High Speed [formally @Home]) goes into the Router, and the router is connected to both the computers.

Niether of the computers can receive the internet connection or detect either one of them. But when I unplug the cable internet and plug it directly into COMPUTER #1, it works (thats how I'm typing this)

Is there anything that you know could be wrong?
Also, I'll mention this, but COMPUTER #2 was messed up and had a fried video card recently. We fixed it, brought it home yesterday and hooked it up. For about 1 hour we were able to connect each other. Then we turned off the computer and now we can't connect and now I'm here. So I dont' think it has anything to do with the computer getting fixed because it was working before.



A:SMC Router isn't Working!!

Well Im kinda a newbie not an expert but if I would try to unplug the router or if it has a reset button try pressing that for about 30 seconds for it to reset. If not then I would go and see if there is a firmware upgrade on the routers site. I hope this helps but again Im only a kid that really hasnt finished training LOL just some Ideas to try.

Someone at my house about a month ago disabled my router from accessing anything. How? He thought it would be funny to do something he read about online (typed the loopback into the web browser ( and typed user: admin password: admin, then enabled AOL parental controls.) The problem? We don't have the AOL client. We've been forced to take the router out and plug one computer at a time directly into the wall with one ethernet cable. I'm unable to go back into the router to disable the problem because the router denies all connection except for from the AOL client. Is there any way to fix this without downloading the AOL client (which will be a huge pain)? I've tried the reset button on the front of the router.
Thanks in advance for any help.

A:Router not working

The router should accept any connection. You wouldn't even need to be connected to the web to access the router at all. If you plug in a desktop or laptop directly into the router via some CAT5 cable and type in into your browser it should prompt you for the username/password for the router's firmware. Then if you know that you should be able to adjust it.
