Information on Router Password Kracker Required?.

Likes # 0

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.

Ok This one is much easier to follow.

Reset Password

And if you got that far you should be able to see the password etc without having to change it.

When resetting names or passwords it is always better to write them down and keep it somewhere safe.

Is there not a sticker on the back of the router giving you the password etc.

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.

Can I just clarify - can you get into the admin pages of your router or is the password for this also causing a problem. If you can access the router pages have you checked that the wireless facility is actually enabled? Some routers also state the wireless password.

Note that I think the screenshot shown at no:1 is misleading it should be your homepage for your browser. The box for for you to type in admin admin is shown at no:2

Just to clarify, I can get into the router using the passwords I know, its the laptop that I cannot connect via a wireless method. All the other computer connected by hardwire are working okay with the broadband connection.

Having had another look at the links provided by lotvic, and the setting up with Vista page, I think that is the possible problem, that I am not doing something quite right.

I haven't got the time at the moment, but I will need to come back to that and try experimenting, unless anyone might see a possible solution, that I am missing?.

Ignore username etc in the router it is the password that you need.

Are you using the same password that is on the router for the laptop.

If so it is odd that it does not work.Is it picking up other networks.Just wondering if there were someone close that uses Talk talk as well and you were trying to sign in to the wrong one.

That of course was a last resort as I could not think of anything else.
