Q: How to change the Wifi password of an ADSL modem without a computer

Hello all,

I use an ADSL modem for accessing Internet in my home. I think my wifi password is stolen. I wanna change it but I have a computer only in my office and use the Internet in my home by my iPhone. Is there a way to change that password with my iPhone or should I surely use a computer to do that work, please?

A: How to change the Wifi password of an ADSL modem without a computer

Hello abbasi ,
You can use your iPhone to log in the router and change the wireless settings, however this isn't usually recommended. If something goes wrong when configuring the wireless settings and you are not able to connect to the router you'll need a device that can be connected via Ethernet cable to restore the access.
If this router is supplied by your ISP you can ask them if they have remote access to it to change the password.
Hope that helps.

A:How to change the Wifi password of an ADSL modem without a computer

I dont think you mean modem; but router rather. Is that right? Because usually modems themselves dont have passwords; but routers do. If its the router you want to change the password for; you should be able to use any device that has web access to access the web configuration page for the router and in there it should have a section where you can change the passphrase/password.

A:Connect a Wireless Modem to ADSL modem for Wifi

The "nokia siemens SL2_141" is a modem/wireless router combo; I assume that "A Wireless Modem of MTS" is also a modem/wireless router combo.

If my assumption is correct you can use the Nokia as an ethernet switch and wireless access point ...

JohnWill's procedure (Aug. 30, 2008) for configuring a secondary router as a switch and, optionally, wireless access point follows.

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. [You will not need a cross-over cable if one of the "routers" is a computer.] Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

For reference, here's a link to a Typical example config using a Netgear router

A:How to use a ADSL modem's wifi with a fiber connection.

the answer is YES

you piggy-back the router onto the fibre modem, you can do this if

a) the fibre modem has a LAN port (which it will have)
b) the fibre modem allows its IP range to be changed
c) the spare router allows DHCP to be disabled
d) the spare router allows its LAN IP Address to be changed

if yes to all 4 then you can do this.

you simply shorten the Fibre Modems LAN Range by 1,
e.g. (assuming your Fibre Modem is on change - to -
as the device is on 0.1 and the rest of the range starts from 0.3 to 0.254 , this leaves 0.2 for the 2nd router to use...

(if your fibre modem is on and range is - then follow suit by changing the to and using the for the 2nd router)

now once you done the above in the fibre modem you can turn off any wi-fi in the fibre modem ...assuming it has any.

now unplug the fibre modem and plug in the 2nd router, log in, disable DHCP and set its LAN IP Address (not the range) to the address you free'd up previously... e.g. (or then apply & save - you will now use that IP Address to access this router instead of

now with both unplugged and powered down/off, plug in the Fibre Modem and turn it on, give it time to connect to internet, then plug a LAN cable from one of its LAN ports to any of the 2nd routers LAN ports, plug in and turn on the 2nd router and wait for a while - you should now be able to use its LAN ports and its Wi-Fi connection

EDIT: as far as im aware its possible to have the 2nd routers IP Address both INSIDE or OUTSIDE (this method) the DHCP Range of the first modem/router, ive seen advice where both have worked.

as for your TV, it sounds like you are trying to Network them together so you can browse/watch files on your TV from your laptop..right? - your TV would have instructions on how to do this if it uses a specific utility/app supplied with the TV, but normally you would have Homegroup running in Windows 7 and this is what networks the computers together, you would then enable sharing on the folders you want too access via the TV, so in laptop right-click on folder (root folder would give access to all folders and files within) , choose PROPERTIES, then SHARING then ADVANCED SHARING and check 'SHARE THIS FOLDER' and click OK - now any computer connected to the router/network via LAN or WIFI can access this folder by accessing the NETWORK link in Start Menu and using the Homegroup password when prompted - but your TV is specific and will/should have its own instructions, disable password on laptops homegroup, this will make it easier.

Well, not so long ago I got ADSL. In the process of the modem installation I got two new icons added to my system tray: one, I think, is 'CSA', whatever that might be, and the other just says: 'Unplug or Eject Hardware'.

I double clicked the second one, unchecked the box saying 'Show Icon in System Tray', and it was goan. The 'CSA' icon has an option to be removed from the tray icon too.

The question:
Do I need those apps constantly running in the BG? Can I remove them from the tray, prevent them from starting at startup, and only run them when I connect?

They slow my computer a great deal, getting really molases-like.

I've currently got a 512kb/s adsl connection but will be moving to a faster 1mb/s connection in next 2 months.In meantime I need to get my other PC to share same connection. So must be wireless. As I understand it a 4 port wireless adsl router means that basically you have an adsl modem that not only controls upload/download link to the internet but lets u plug in 4 PC's hardwired into modem? and then as well as that connect wirelessly?

I'm only looking to connect two PC's to hardwired in and the other wireless equipped with a USB wireless stick.

Would this be suitable?

A:Sharing internet using ADSL. Which router/adsl modem to buy?

I suppose this is what your ISP is trying to sell you..

How can I change password on router? I think that there are others using my wifi connectionPlease help!

A:how can i change password on wifi?

We need to know your router make and model number. However, you can access router settings from your browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome or whatever). It is an IP address and will look something like this (although the figures will probably be different). To get in there you have to type a Username and Password. If these have not been set, then look in your router info for the default settings - often something like "Admin" with a blank password.The password above is for router settings access and is not the one you are seeking. Once you get into the router settings look for "passphrase" or "pass key" (the former being the correct terminology). When you find it you input your current passphrase and then replace it with whatever you require. You will then also have to change that on all devices that use it.If your security is high enough, WPA2 for example, then others shouldn't be accessing it unless they are very well versed in this sort of thing. What evidence do you have which makes you feel this is happening? Sometimes sharing the same channel with your nearest neighbour can slow things down (if that is the issue). Channels 1, 6 and 11 are usually selected to minimise overlaps. Routers by default just select channels automatically but that does not mean that they necessarily chose the best one. There is a lot to be said for manually selecting one where others using it show weak signals. Unfortunately Windows does not provide any indication of what channels are being use and by whom. There a little freebie programs that do this - here is one: also shows signal strengths on the same page and can be run from a shortcut rather than continuously in the background.Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanksmessage edited by Derek

A:Unable to change wifi password in windows 7

Can't you just log into the router and reset the settings?

If you don't have the password, you can perform a "hard" reset using the reset button on the back of the router, normally you need to hold this button down for up to 30 seconds.

Okay first I very much doubt that the modem cares whether you are using Vista or not, so that's something to disregard.

Is the hardware a "Speedtouch 330 Modem" from the UK ? Googling indicates this hardware is being provided by an ISP ?

If so, your best source of information is the ISP. Check to see if they have configuration instructions on-line, or call Tech Support for assistance.

When the laptop is charging, especially if the battery is very low, the removal

Also, when I tried to uninstall my modem so that I can re-install it, it refuses to uninstall saying missing .dll and that I have no administration rights though I am the only user. Please help me. Thanks!

A:Uninstalling ADSL Modem


Which Operating System are you using? XP or Vista for example.

Can you give me the exact model of the modem? Preferably from a sticker.

In future, when uninstalling use Revo uninstaller from

When prompted for the Removal Type choose Advanced.

The program is safe, sets a System Restore point first (assuming you haven't disabled it), I use it all the time both for myself and for my customers.

Assuming the program still appears in Add / Remove Programs or Program and Features - Revo WILL be able to remove it regardless of whether the built in uninstaller works or not. Just continue with the Revo bit after the built-in uninstaller fails.

A:ADSL Modem DSL-G604T Help.

You should start by using an Ethernet connection between the modem and computer before trying to use the wireless. Many routers need to be configured before the wireless will work. Also since this is a new setup you should talk to the ISP, especially before updating the firmware.

Do you have your microfilters in place?

To bad I don't know much of anything about ADSL modems. Their web site says it should be automatic setup. But I imagine your service provide has to setup the modem? Or you have to put your username and password into it somehow or some kind of codes?

Did you call your ISP and see if they can see it?

That's as far as I can muster. Don't come across ADSL in my area much.

hello this is uday and New is this site.i am facing problem with 3 public ip in one adsl modem it is possable or if possable tell me how

A:3 public IP in one ADSL modem

That's call a Virtual Ethernet Interface but requires three sources to feed the virtual addresses, eg:

--- 192.168.1.x network ------+
--- 172.16.10.x network ---+ |
--- 10.101.23.x network -+ | |
| | |
common switch ---- [B]systemX[/B] with Virtual Interfaces

Then systemX can have one NIC which has a real ip address on (say) the 192.168.1 net,
and virtual addresses for the 172.16.10 and 10.101.23 net

The source networks could just as easily be public ISP connections thru separate modems
(which would require 3x DSL lines and modems for example).

A friend of mine has a broadband account with AOL. The computer works fine if the modem AOL supplied is used, however they wanted to go wireless so that the second computer they have could access AOL if the other one was offline.
The computers can 'talk' to each other via the wireless but the modem bit of the adsl wireless modem/router does not seem able to connect with AOL for either computer. This appears to be a problem with the set up of the modem which is a fairly standard Newlink. The set up menu has a specific AOL button which configures the modem to AOL's settings but nothing happens afterwards.
They are tearing their hair out and I am starting to do the same! Knowing my luck it will be something so obvious I haven't thought of it.

I am staying at my brother's house right now. They have Embarq DSL and have a EQ-660R ADSL Router (that's what they call it. I wouldn't call it a router). On a typical day, you can expect it to loose internet connectivity multiple times per hour. It will usually find a signal and reconnect within a couple of minutes. I have never had DSL, only cable. Is this something that is typical with DSL, or is it probably something wrong with the modem/router. I have noticed this modem on ebay for only a couple of bucks. Would it be worth picking one up, or is this something he is going to have to deal with as long as he has DSL? Thanks for the help.

If i plug my usb adsl modem in and the exchange HAS been enabled will the modem sinc and the adsl light stay green all the time ( or whatever it does ) or will it only do it once we get to the 7/8/03 when my account with Freedom2surf (isp) starts ?

The DSL line needs to configured by your local telco...

I imagine that it will be done before 7/8/03--- Im assuming thats Aug. 8, 03

Until the line is configured... the ready light should just blink (because its not synching to anything) Once it synchs (and your account has been activated) you should be ready to go.

The connection has got nothing to do with the computer starting up at all. Your computer is always connected to the router and that's all your conmputer has to know. It's the router's problem how to connect to the internet.

You should have a "connect on demand" or "auto connect" setting somewhere in the router setup. This tells the router to keep the connection alive no matter if a computer is turned on or not.

Hi LightBlue25 !

XP hasn't got all drivers for all devices already included. You probably need to reinstall the modem. If you received any disks with the modem the drivers will be on it, else you'll have to go to the manufacturer's website support section to search for the appropriate drivers.

Hi guys!

I am having a BSNL Broadband connection and am facing a unique problem. Many a times I have seen that while working on the net, all of a sudden all data inflow and outflow stops completely although I dont get disconnected. The lights in the ADSL modem supplied by BSNL is all intact but nothing loads. Now if I switch off the modem and start it again and reconnect, things start working normally. Certain times, when this also doesnt work, I have to restart my computer as well as the modem and then things start working normally.

Why does this happen? Is this a problem with my Operating system, the modem or the BSNL Connection? I doubt that the problem is with the OS as I have already reinstalled the whole OS and still the problem persists.

A:problem with adsl USB modem driver

If you got new drivers from D-Link they should be XP compatible. The only thought I've had is some devices want the install done their own way, not via the windows 'Find New Hardware' wizard. In other words you have to install the software first before you connect it to the USB port. I don't know the reason why this makes a difference but I've come across several devices where this is the case.

My suggestion is to completely uninstall the DSL modem software from your laptop and delete the modem, reboot, then do an install of the software before you plug the modem in.

There are also some problems to actually open the link to my ISP, it tries and tries and eventually gets there...

You only need a modem driver if it connects to a USB port on your PC, otherwise, where it connects to a network card via CAT5 or CAT6 cable, no driver required as it's the card which needs a driver and that should already be installed.

If it is a USB modem, I'm afraid I can't find any info on that make/model.

What would be the optimum way to set up my network.

A:Connecting My New Router to my old ADSL Modem

Connecting two (or more) SOHO broadband routers together.

Note: The "primary" router can be an actual router, a software gateway like Microsoft Internet Connection Sharing, or a server connection that has the capability to supply more than one IP address using DHCP server capability. No changes are made to the primary "router" configuration.

Configure the IP address of the secondary router(s) to be in the same subnet as the primary router, but out of the range of the DHCP server in the primary router. For instance DHCP server addresses through, I'd assign the secondary router as it's IP address, for another router, etc.

Note: Do this first, as you will have to reboot the computer to connect to the router again for the remaining changes.

Disable the DHCP server in the secondary router.

Setup the wireless section just the way you would if it was the primary router, channels, encryption, etc.

Connect from the primary router's LAN port to one of the LAN ports on the secondary router. If there is no uplink port and neither of the routers have auto-sensing ports, use a cross-over cable. Leave the WAN port unconnected!

This procedure bypasses the routing function (NAT layer) and configures the router as a switch (or wireless access point for wireless routers).

A:ADSL modem wont connect to ISP...

Check the DI-624 configuration.

Are you sure you have configured the DI-624 correctly? The routers setup wizard will step you through the basics. You should make sure that you have DHCP server set and your XP Home PC is getting a valid IP address from the router. With the DI-624 this address will be in the range to (the default).

You might also try a ping test from the routers setup page "Tools/Misc". If you have a good ISP connection you should be able to ping your ISP successfully?

I believe cable providers usually use dynamic IP addresses. Has your router been correctly set up for this and did you specify valid primary and secondary DNS addresses, as provided by you cable provider?

Hi all hope I posted this in the right forum I ve recently had to re-install windows I then installed an ADSL Modem on it Sagem F st - I did have problems with the computer rebooting itself at random times while the modem was plugged in to fix this I changed my USB setting from ISO to BULK as instructed by my ISP Now I am having problems with my connection While on the internet it just randomly disconnects me and asks if I want to re-dial my connection When I click re-dial it freezes so I have to click cancel re-launch the modem and re-dial again This is very annoying and was wondering if anyone had any ideas as to what might cause it to disconnect By the way I have set Auto-Disconnect to NOT run Modem Difficulties Connection ADSL and I don t have options to disconnect if idle for minutes or if a connection is no longer needed I don t think it s because I set the USB to BULK either because I had it on this setting before windows was re-installed and it was fine Anyway any ideas would be appreciated Thanks nbsp

A:ADSL Modem Connection Difficulties

Windows 98 is iffy with USB, W98SE is slightly better, but USB-drivers for either hardly ever work.
Check that you have the latest W98 USB-drivers installed. Also see if there are any USB-drivers on the motherboard CD and install/upgrade those as well.
If you would install Windows 2000 Pro instead, rather than XP, it would make life a lot easier for you.

I've re-formatted a friends laptop at my house, which is ADSL, but he uses a dial-up connection at home.

Q1. Can I connect his laptop to his ISP, using his dial-up, through my ADSL line, or does it have to be an analogue line?

Q2. His modem is an Agere systems 97 (ACER aspire 1500 laptop) it fails to make any sound when dialling out. I've tried updating the driver, and ensuring the sound is activated via AT commands, but still no joy. Any ideas?

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Hey :

Is there any way @ all I can boost and stabilize the signal ? Plz I have reached a critical point and cannot take it anymore

Here's what my modem looks like :

The ISP gave me a USB ADSL Modem for internet acces. The model is SpeedTouch 330 and it connects to the computer through a USB interface instead of an ethernet interface. I have 2 computers at home and want to network them. The ISP wants me to pay more money for the extra computer, but that's not gonna happen. As a workaround I considered buying my own ADSL Router and ditching the one given to me by the ISP.

Any suggestions?

A:Home network with a USB ADSL Modem

Before plunking down any of my own money i would contact the ISP and tell them your machine cannot use the USB modem and you need one with a network interface.
Save your money for a wireless router and card which you'll need to complete your setup.

I have set up an internet connection for my girlfriends dad using Tiscali (service provider)
The problem I am having is I cannot get the broadband connection to work.

I have set the modem up as explained in the instructions given, but all i get is a flashing light.

The strange thing is that i was on the phone the other day and the light stopped flashing and stayed on, i got a connection, but when i finished the phone call the connection was lost.
So the broadband only works when the phone is in use.
Would this be down to the microfilters? there is one near the computer and one in the main phone socket. (there are also two other sockets without microfilters, and a sky connection)

Also the computer is connected to a secondary phone socket not the main. would this affect the signal?

Any help would be great!

I would believe you may have a bad POTS line. Run down to Walmart and pick up a pre-made telephone line and run straight to the POTS service box from your DSL modem.POTS= Plain Old Telephone Service

Am connecting to ADSL2+ using Edimax ADSL ext. Modem AR-7025UmA using USB connect, or will this work slow and would I be better to use Ethernet cable Modem?

A:ADSL modem choices: USB v Ethernet

simplicity wins every time. your system already has TCP software while the USB device needs a driver - - run a cable to the modem or use the WiFi feature (if there is one).

using modem--->system connections without a router (modem-->router-->system), you should make sure to use your firewall to protect it. You should also understand that
without a router, you can not have multiple systems share your ISP and can not use print/file sharing between systems (regardless of the USB issue noted above)

Hi, I have a Etec ADSL 4 port modem router. Sometimes, web pages will not load and I have to restart my computer for them to load. This doesnt happen all the time, but I was wondering if there was a router setting i could change in order to fix this.

A:Etec ADSL modem router

Why don't you reset the router instead? Just pull the mains adapter-cable from the router and reinsert it after a few seconds. The router will re-initialise and should be working fine again.
Some routers get 'clogged up' after a while. Mine does the same (Billion BipAc 640AE).
There are no settings to overcome that, as I found out.

I'm using....

Toshiba laptop with built in wi-fi, running Win XP Home
Netgear DG834G Wireless Router

The router is configured to allow connection to the internet when hooking it up with the ethernet cable provided.

I'm getting the error message from the system tray stating that the wireless network isn't available. When I scan for wireless networks it doesn't find anything even although the router is right next to the laptop.

Is there anywhere I can go to check what the settings should be on the router and the laptop?

There are no other PC's involved. Just the laptop.

I use an external xdsl modem. I just received an HPv40 fax/copier/printer. I want to be able to use my fax even if I am online. I can't figure out the correct connection configuration. By the way, the HPv40 uses a usb connection.

Thank you for any help at all!

A:Connect Fax & External adsl Modem

You need a filter for the phone line that you're connecting the device to, and then the fax machine can dial out while you're on the internet. It's the same as all the other phones in your house.

My Conexant AccessRunner ADSL randomly shuts down and connects again, with no reason.
Of course the net connection is lost,and i have to connect manualy when it happens.
It looks as if there is some malware.
I run Ewido , ad-aware,windows defender,and Norton AV 2005.
By the way it never happened before i formatted recently.
