Are you sure 192.168.0.1 is the cirrect address.

To check go to a command prompt and type ipconfig /all

The address you need is the one opposite default gateway.

If ipconfig /all doesn't work then you have something seriously wrong with Windows that a wi-fi password wont fix.

Is there anything else that is not working that should be?

What was it that prompted you to want to change the wi-fi password?

I would go into the Network and sharing centre and check that the network is configured correctly. At the very least you should have a connection between your computer and the Modem/router

Is the article related to your wish to change the password?

And this Virgin "how to" may help you achieve the changes...

http://tinyurl.com/llxd5ok

Note that generally you are best connecting to the router with an ethernet/cat-5 cable to make changes to settings - not the least for anything related to wifi... If you change anything related to wifi access via a wifi connection to the router, very likely you will disable you connection (via wifi) to the router almost immediately. It doesn't always happen of course but wise to make changes via and ethernet/cat-5 connection...

Open Internet Explorer and type in -- Find my IP Address -- Click -- Search. -----------------
Edit -- After searching it looks like Virgin Media net changed it's name to just Virugn Media. I found their forum and they probably can help. ---------
http://community.virginmedia.com/ --------- If you had given a web site it would have helped.

That ip address (what's my ip address) is what your isp presents/assigns as your account address to www as "your" ip address - and unless you pay for a fixed (static) ip address, that ip address will be volatile. Non fixed (static) ip addresses are short term leases. They can change at any time for various reasons; although that lease can be quite a long lease before it changes/expires (unless one powers down the router for while - when one may be assigned a "new"/different" ip address when powering the router again).

The router's home page is encoded within the router itself; which is why one may find several manufacturers sharing what appears to the same ip address for their respective home page/admin access. Generally those addresses are of the form: 192.168.x.y

Where x can be 0, or 1, or 2 and so on; similarly for y... These being applied in varyious combinations of x and y values.

The guidelines on the Virgin media website didn't help?

Is the ethernet connection actually enabled on your laptop? If you check in Device Manager are there any yellow exclamation marks showing in the network section?

Have you actually power cycled the router - as in powered down (ideally remove the power in completely) - wait a minute or so, then power up again?

If that fails to resolve it, and you cannot even connect to the router via ethernet/cat-5 cable and login to its home page that way, and the the ethernet cable is OK, and the laptop ethernet adapter is functioning normally (no yellow exclamation marks showing) and is enabled... Then it would point to the router being at fault.

It "may" be power supply for the router, it may be actual router itself. Either way, you're paying Virgin for a service (and support) so perhaps contact Virgin and ask for a replacement router.

The second link I posted earlier is from the Virgin site and specific to your actual router.
