I have a HUAWIE EchoLife HG520s via Talktalk. There was a small card with the router with various login information. I have lost the card in the last few months and need to add another laptop and Nokia mobile phone to the network. I have accessed the properties and cannot find the necessary password to allow access to the network. Could someone give me the correct info to find the password. Thanks in anticipation.
In general, a Router's configuration pages can be accessed by typing its [the router's] IP address into your web browser. If you don't know its IP address then, with a computer that is connected to the Router, open a Command Prompt window, type in...
...and press Enter. Look for the "Default Gateway" address, which will be the Router's IP address. click here You will probably be prompted for the Router's Username & Password in order to continue. Once in the configuration pages, go to the wireless security settings. If the encryption key is plain text, you can make a note of it; if it is "masked" with dots or asterisks, you would need to enter a new WEP/WPA key and then use that in *ALL* computers that connect wirelessly to the router.
I have got into the router properties and I can see one password. This is under my WAN login information. Login is my telephone number with std code @ talktalk.net. the password is something i know but is starred out but i have checked how many digits it has and recognise what it would be. this however is not my ssid password. under wireless LAN settings there is my SSID of the router but no password is to be seen. Hope I am explaining properly.
