I bought a Kindle Fire and can't connect to my wireless b/c I forgot the password. I can't call my internet provider b/c a friend hooked up my router years ago. I tried typing 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.1.0 into my browser, but it just keeps taking me to Google. Help! I

If you have another computer that has the wifi password saved on it then download and install Cain and Abel from http://www.oxid.it/cain.html (your antivirus my flag it as a dangerous program as it can be used to backdoor into other computers but you will only use it to expose the saved wifi password)

Another way is to connect into the router by typing the router address in a web browser then logging in. If 192.168.1.1 didn't work (it can't end with 0 and will almost always end with 1) try 192.168.0.1 or even 192.168.2.1 All else fail you will need to find out your Gateway IP address. In a Windows computer type CMD in the Run command field and then type IPCONFIG. If you manage to get on your router settings page you will first need to log in. If you don't know the password try admin/admin or admin/password or admin/<blank> If none of those work then google the make/model of your router with "default password"… One you log in you will most likely wont be able to see the password so you will just have to create a new one,

If the default username/password don't work than someone had changed them, If so the only thing you can do is reset the router: find the pinhole button either on the back or bottom of the router. Using a paper clip (or a pen if it will fit) press the button and leave it pressed for 30 seconds… Afterwards the router will be reset back to factory default and the default username/password will work.

Good luck!

Here you go --> http://w3techie.com/2011/finding-your-wifi-password/

That'll tell you how to find your router's IP so you can check that password.

By the way, make sure you're not navigating to "192.168.0.1" (or whatever yours is), but to "http://192.168.0.1".

You need that http in front.
