I was given a D-Link wireless router from my office for my personal use. There is an old password currently on it and I am unable to reset it with the little black buttom on the back. No one recalls the password at the office. My laptop is recognizing the "security enabled" network. . . am I SOL.

Thanks for any thoughts.

Greg

Actually, if you hold the reset button for 15 seconds, it will indeed reset to factory defaults. If that doesn't work, it's broken anyway.

Numbers stamped underneath the router will not have the passphrase for the encrypted wireless connection - this secure connection is user set. A MAC address is simply an identifier (like an "address address") for the device itself, that's it.

Send a message via MSN to Soulblazer91

ok hey. check the model number and manufacturer. do a search for the manual on the manufacturer's site and it should have the default password. alot of times it's just something like

Username: user
Password: <leave blank>

or

admin
password

etc.
