Information on Router Password Kracker Required?.

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.

I expect that you have tried a myriad of things to try to sort it out. Don't know if you have seen this article that may just throw up something you haven't tried. I remember when I had a Vista laptop - I too had some problems setting up the wireless connection. What fixed it for me was disabling ipv6.

Thanks again everyone for the further inputs. I have tried many suggestions, and when I mentioned earlier, the IT person I used contacted TalkTalk and between them got the system working. For some reason later, I lost this connection and cannot remember why, and have tried to reconnect since as time allowed (the laptop was purchased about 3 years ago, and is rarely used) ad hoc?.

I will sit down with this (in front of another computer)and study the advice or suggestions being given, and try a few things. Hopefully this exercise will bring some answers very shortly?.

spuds , ever thought of going it alone? Get a cheap router, something like this. Don't use the 'easy set up CD' but configure manually. The 'BASIC' link I posted gives you all the info you need to connect to TT except the name and password which TT have given you or updated to connect to TT within the router.

Worth having a backup router anyway, I have two, as when they go belly up they can also take out your telephone connection. I found that out with an elderly Netgear that lasted me years. Once I unplugged the dead Netgear (lights working but no-one home) the phone worked. But that's by the by.

Update

I still cannot understand what is wrong, having tried a number of suggestions given and from elsewhere. The laptop still confirms that it as an broadband connection, and all the indications seem to be there, but I still cannot get on the internet with possible 'server not responding' messages.

Doing diagnostic checks, the results are 'Windows did not find problems with computer network connection'.

Looks like I will have to get the person I have used in the past back?.

I have a number of router/modems of various ages and specification. The Asus DSL-N11 I mentioned on 01/02/2013 would most and probably be the one I think that I will try, but I will leave that final decision to the engineer I will call in. (Let him play around with it?)

...........

Thanks again everyone for the help and suggestions. Will tick as resolve, and return when I have any relevant results.

spuds , check with the sparky if he connects manually. Ask him to show you what he does. You're the customer after all.
