    A friend of mine set up my new wireless router a few months ago and doesn't remember the account information he used to set it up for me. I have now moved into an apartment complex and need to password it. How can I do this without knowing the setup information? It is a netger wireless router. Thanks for any help here. I don't want have to go buy a new one to start over!:eek:

    Hi and welcome to TSG.

    Are you able to log into the router or did your friend change the administration log-in password?

    If you can no longer log into the router administration pages, check the router for some kind of recessed Reset switch. The user manual should tell you where it is and how to use it. You should then be able to log into it using the default user name and password. That will then allow you to configure it to work with the apartment's Internet connection and also configure the Wireless encryption method and password.
