Re: wifi password

Login to the router's configuration page, by going to 192.168.0.1 in your browser. Go to the wireless security page to see and change the password.

 

If you tell us the model of router you have, we can provide more detailed information if you need it.

You got my attention.  If you would be so kind and to name the router that uses 0.254 I will add it to my list. Smiley Happy  If you have the default uid and password I would appreciate that as well.

Re: wifi password

I have notes that show some very old Sitecom routers using 0.254 with admin/admin.  I was also thinking of the 2 Wire equipment which really is 1.254, which is DSL equipment.

 

How about the Motorola WR850G routers usin 10.1 and using admin/motorola

 

If I find more details in my notes, I'll ammend this answer.

Re: wifi password

And just to be weird, I have my router set up to use 192.168.3.1, but I'm not sure why. I think it may have come from when I was replacing my previous router, so I set the new one up with a different address range.
