Simply open a browser window , while connected by ethernet cable to the router , and in the address bar type in , press enter , unless you set it to something else , type " admin " in to the admin box , and " password " for the password , press enter again , from there go to the wireless section , you can make a new WPA code from there , male a note of it and deploy it to all the PC's the access the router . Save all the settings and re-connect all the PC's in turn .
