    Sorry no idea



    do you have a pc working on your network at the moment?

    if so, navigate to 192.168.1.1

    it will hopefully prompt you for a user name and password

    click on wireless

    then security, and see what comes up

    Oh My Help sorry dont know how to navigate to this

    open up internet explorer and type in the following:

    192.168.1.1

    then follow the steps above - although, if you arent at all confident in doing this, i would highly recommend you get someone with some experience in doing this to help you (you might end up making it worse than it already is)

    just type it in your web browser without www.

    The server 192.168.1.1 at WRT54GS requires a username and password.

    Warning: This server is requesting that your username and password be sent in an insecure manner (basic authentication without a secure connection). This is what came up does this mean i have a password ?

    Think you may be right amansk don't know what i'm doing ,think will leave alone. Thanks to all for your help.

    I think you are best leaving it, if you get the setting s wrong you can lock out all the computers from the router.

    yes, there are standard passwords but your son might have changed it. best to leave it then, sorry!

    i have one of these. if you push the reset button for about 30 seconds it will reset the router and unlock the routers security setting. you will then be able to loginwithout requiring a username or password by pressing enter at the login stage. make sure however you set up a new security wep. do you not have the box/manual ?, the setup is truly very easy using the extremely easy to follow user guide.

    That will also wipe the ADSL details which the person may not have to hand, for the sake of one laptop working wirelessly I don't think it's worth it.

    this router automatically links up with the modem so works immediately when reset but the security is not set up which isn't safe
