Hi. My Vista desktop computer is connected to the secure wifi connection from my router, however I now want to add my new Vista laptop to that network via my wireless router. I have forgotten the password and connection details and have no idea how to find them. It is a Linksys Wireless G router; I have tried contacting my provider but this has not been of any use. Please can someone tell me how I can find my password and connection details to access my wireless router's secure network, or how I can go about resetting them to start again? I don't know how many digits my password is or if its WPA or WEP or anything like that. I really need to resolve this asap, thanks!

Run a network cable from the desktop to the router, then log into the router. Typically http://192.168.1.1 or whatever it says in the manual. The default usernames and passwords to get in are also in the manual unless you've changed them.

Failing that the only other advice we can offer is to reset the router; this will reset wireless security back to none and it will lose internet connectivity until you set it up again. Normally you hold in a little indented button on the back of the router until all the lights go out.
