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.

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 check, you are attempting logging in the homepage on a pc that is connected by ethernet cable aren't you? silly question I know but just wanted to make sure.

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?.

I think the problem is using Quick start instead of basic. Trouble is these links shows different pages when logging in to the router. I would go the 'basic' way myself as you'd then know the type of security and the key and the SSID. You'd then just use the info to connect wirelessly on the vista laptop. No need to connect with the Ethernet cable.

What I'm puzzled about is that there seems to be two types of pages you get on these routers when logging in? Might just be my ignorance of the router, though. Have a look at these links,

Basic

Quick Start.

Try this:

The only info you need from your Router is the Wireless Password and make a note of it.

Connect the laptop with an ethernet cable first, then follow the instructions on the Vista page to Add a wifi network that is in range (in step 10 you unplug the Ethernet cable) Then I would think you would have to click on connect to the wifi or reboot pc so it automatically connects.

Morning lotvic. If you're with Talk Talk can you explain why I got two different landing pages showing for that router in the links? The days of having to connect a laptop via Ethernet to connect wirelessly have long gone now surely? Hate to try and connect a tablet to it.

Check you have switched on the WiFi on the router. There is a button to press on the side of router

rdave13, morning to you as well, and goodnight, this is my last post before switching off. Landing pages - it was two different models, the 520s and the 520b. (b & s, there's a joke in there somewhere :))

I think the problem is Vista and the way Vista needs to add the network. Tablets and modern routers are easy if they have WPS.

Quite right lotvic, missed the b&s,! I'll use being tired as an excuse. So on the 'b' router is it possible to set up the router manually instead of the quick start? I'm getting deja vu here with my time with AOL :(
