How do I find my 192.168 1.1 password?
I'm trying to setup a wireless network for my home, and I can't seem to get the wireless adapter to connect to the router.
I can ping the router and I can see the SSID name, but when I try to connect I get "connection failure" in the command line.
I know I need to enter the SSID and the password for the router. But I don't know where I can find that info.
The wireless adapter is an Edimax EW-7132U with the following information in the command line: root@HAS1:/etc# iwconfig wlan0 essid xxx key xxx. Wlan0 IEEE 802.11bgn ESSID: xxx Nickname:"xxx" Mode:Managed Frequency:2.462 GHz Access Point: xx:xx:xx:xx Bit Rate=24 Mb/s Tx-Power=17 dBm Sensitivity=1/3. Retry short limit:7 RTS thr:off Fragment thr:off. Power Management:off. Link Quality=80/100 Signal level=-43 dBm Noise level=-93 dBm. Rx invalid nwid:0 Rx invalid crypt:0 Rx invalid frag:0. Tx excessive retries:0 Invalid misc:0 Missed beacon:0. I have tried googling the various possible combinations of the SSID and password, but nothing has come up. I'm not sure if I need to enter both of them, or if one is enough.
I'm running Ubuntu 12.04.5, and the router is a D-Link DNS-323W.
In this situation I would simply run the following command and it will tell you the SSID of the router and the password. Sudo iwlist wlan0 scan
Can you find Wi-Fi passwords?
I just got a new laptop running Windows 8 and for the first time since I bought my Windows laptop, I can't find Wi-Fi.
If I move the laptop about 5 feet away, the connection comes back, but I have to go back to my router to get an IP address and access to the Internet. What's going on?
The Windows 7 version of the problem was that I could connect to no other wireless network (including my own) because my home router was blocking those addresses in what's called DHCPv6 scope negotiation. A solution was to switch to WPA/WPA2 encryption, which Windows 8 seemed to be happy with. That's not the problem here.
If there are multiple connected devices on your network, they will be able to see each other and share the connection with each other as long as all of them have the right software installed, but not each one will get its own IP address. As for why it's happening, you might check that your router's DHCP server has been configured correctly and is responding to your Windows 8 clients. It shouldn't be taking all of your subnet numbers. If it is, then set the client's static IP address manually.
Finally, you can probably tell by now that there's something about Windows 8 I don't like. More reading. Today's free software includes free apps and video from ZDNet. CNET: Windows 8.1 Preview released, new features, and a new Start menu.
