Well that's pretty vague, your going to have to provide a lot more into than that. What security settings did you change and on what device, computer or router? Make and model of computer and router? Why did you change them, any,error messages?

I wanted to change my WiFi pass word, I went into the security settings in the router, notice that it was saying that there was no network connections. Tried to type in one, it asked for some info and I type in something, and I was locked out of it. I'm unable to go back and correct the problem.

Connect to your router via cat-5/ethernet cable. Then you can access the entire wifi area (and everything else too).

It would be useful to post the make and model of the router here.

Remember too that when you change the wifi access-key (frequently incorrectly referred to as a password) you have to ensure your computers etc. are also using the "new" access-key/password. Also useful to make a note of it and stick a copy of it on the base of the router? Even main a record of it to yourself; and save the email in a save folder - a form of free cloud storage.

Your only way back in if you don't/can't connect with cat-5/ethernet cable is to reset the router to factory/delivery status; via the rest button. (This is usually via a small pin hole on the rear, into which you insert a stout paper clip and press/hold a few seconds; then release and wait for router to reset.) After-which you have to re-enter any settings you need to get up and running again...

All this is in the user manual of course...

"I type in something"
Sounds like you changed the Wifi key to something but don't know what it was. That would lock you out.

Responses #3 and #4 should sort this out.

Always pop back and let us know the outcome - thanks
