hi guys, kid brother couldn't remember his password for his router so decided a nice reboot would allow him to reset the password, only issue is now laptop would pick up router, its almost like it int broadcasting, tried looking at the default ip address 192.168.1.1 but it wont bring up anything, any ideas how i can sort this?

the router is a pluscom wr-ar72317
cheers

If you have reset the router to default the laptop will not connect as the SSID will have changed and the laptop is likely using the SSID you originally created. Try connecting laptop to router via cable this should allow connection to web and allow you to reset the SSID and password.

Reboot does not reset a Router. To reset it look for a pin hole in the back of the router. then resetup connections as above
