Specs: Windows 7
How can I get a new security code? I never put it in when I brought my router because I lost the instruction paper.

You should be able to connect to your router by typing 192.169.1.1 into your browser.

from there you will be able to login to your router and change your security code, i am assuming you are talking about your wifi code? right?

if you are talking about your login details, then you will need to refer to the user manual, i think, you should be able to reset the router by either turning it off for a cetain time or using the reset button at the back of the router.

if you google the make and model you probably be able to find the user manual online..

You would go online to the router manufacturers web site and download your manual. It will walk you thru setting up the wifi aspect of your router.

Note: not all routers are accessed via 192.168.1.1.

Answers are only as good as the information you provide.

If you have lost the security code (encryption key) for your WLAN, you should connect to the router by wire. Then you should be able to get into the Web-Configuration of the router by typing it's ip address into the address bar of your browser.

If you don't know the ip address of your router, click Start / Run and type in cmd.
In the upcoming black window called command prompt, type in ipconfig /all.
The output will show you alot of things, but the only interesting for you is the default gateway address, which is the ip address of your router.
Type this ip address in the browsers address bar and get into the configuration interface of your router.

Manuals can mostly be downloaded at the manufacturers webpage.
