    Hi, i have just bought a laptop, and tried to connect to the router wirelessly. However, i don't know the password. Mrs martian has a laptop and connects wirelessly, but neither of us can remember the password to the wireless network.

    Can i get connected? Who do i need to talk to?

    On any of the PC's that can connect to the net , open internet explorer and type the following in the address bar:

    http://192.168.0.1 - press enter

    Enter admin as the username and password as the password ( unless of course you changed them)

    Click on Wireless settings and the wireless key will be displayed.

    Enter this code/key on your new laptop.

    Done .
