Information on Router Password Kracker Required?.

  spuds 10:52 01 Feb 2013

I have installed a download called Router Password Kracker from Security Xploded that was obtained from the Majorgeeks website.

Seemed a simple to use application, but I have found this not so.

Do you know this program, if so, how do you set it up?.

The reason why I want to use this program, is due to a problem of trying to connect wireless free to a laptop, that doesn't want to accept the connection or password. I would add that I have mentioned this problem before in another posting a few months ago, which is still hasn't been resolved successfully.

If you do not know Router Password Kracker, then would you have another possible or similar download suggestion?.

Using XP Home as main but Vista on the laptop.

Not sure I understand wireless free but if you know the router's wpa key and trying to connect the Vista laptop wirelessly, check your router's wireless settings and that MAC filtering is off. Sorry if way off course :)

Found this on you tube. I'd turn the volume off :) also information how to use here.

I also do not know what you mean by wireless free. Have you tried a factory reset of the router? This will return the log-in page of the router to default settings - most usually admin and password. You will of course have to restore all of your settings.

Thanks for the response and the two links. I had already tried the help and support at Security Xploded, but found it a little confusing, when trying to set up via dictionary. I have bookmarked the two links for further referral. The other link was very interesting, because that seemed to suggest what I was experiencing, and that was the directory requirement, which can be confusing in setting up and getting results easily?.

Regarding the wireless thing, I did try many suggestion that were in the posting I mention, but nothing seemed to work, as the password acceptance seemed to be one of the problems. Linking via cable, and I had broadband connection, hence my return to the subject and problem, by trying a few experiments.

The wireless connection to the laptop, was previously posted, and many suggestions were given, but none seemed to work. Making a direct cable link worked.

The router is connected to three computer's via direct cable, and all work perfectly, its just the wireless thing with the laptop that seems to have a problem, especially when it will not accept a password or security input (if that makes sense?).

Has someone changed the default name and password log in to the router?

  spuds 12:57 01 Feb 2013

There were some changes made, when I got a local IT consultant (does work for the local schools etc) in to do some work, and at the same time connect the laptop to the internet, which he did via TalkTalk support. All seemed to work well on his departure,and a month or so after, but then there was a problem with the laptop and probably Vista (I forget what), and since then no joy in getting the laptop to connect.

The router is HUAWEI EchoLife HG520b.(standard supply via TalkTalk)

But I am considering using a Asus DSL-N11, which is suppose to be a better router with extra coverage and security?.

Just used the link, and the models I mention are not listed, but admin/admin is listed for most models, and that's the same for the two models I mention.

Would add, that when the IT man and TalkTalk were involved, a second password was used, but this doesn't seem to be acceptable, when I have tried it?.

I can still get into the Huawei router using admin/admin for router checks.

If you can get into the router for admin checks then you can access the configuration pages the same way and put in a new wireless password, change channels, etc. Suggest that you change the password.
