Go to http://192.168.1.1

default username and password are both admin

the wifi password can be changed by going to wireless > wireless security

Safe to say, you can go ahead and reset the router and reconfigure just to lessen the hassle.

You can refer to my signature on how to configure your router depending on your ISP.

 

Do post back if you need further help.

You mentioned setup so you must have used the setup CD? If so and you haven't reset the password yet, run Cisco Connect on your computer and go to router settings. You'll find what you need from there

Hi Children9!,

 

This is how you reset your wifi setting on the router. First, you have to access the set up page then you click the wireless tab for you to customize the settings. Here are the links below.
