    Thousands of different routers. We can't guess what brand and model router you have.

    What does it mean for a router to be locked? I am familiar with protecting a router via encrypting the wireless signal, assigning a non-default login password and disabling remote access.

    To reset the wireless encyption password do these steps:

    Log in to the wireless router at its default LAN address of http://www.routerlogin.net with its default user name of admin and default password of password, or using whatever password and LAN address you have chosen for the wireless router. 2. Select Wireless Settings from the main menu. Note: If you use a wireless computer to configure wireless security settings, you will be disconnected when you click Apply. If this happens, reconfigure your wireless computer to match the new settings, or access the wireless router from a wired computer to make further changes. 3. On the Wireless Setting screen, select the radio button for the WPA or WPA2 option of your choice. 4. The settings displayed on the screen depend on which security option you select. 5. For WPA-PSK or WPA2-PSK, enter the passphrase. 6. To save your settings, click Apply
