    I have this unit for Sky and its locked. The security code is on the base this needs to be on the laptop password screen to log on.
    Hope this helps

    Easiest way is to turn off any WEP/WPA security on router. That should solve the problem.

    Router security is mainly to reassure numpties. Any half knowledgeable 14-year old can get past it so it's hardly worth bothering about.
