Default Computer Question

Ok, so the wife bought a nintendo Wii. Right now I am trying to figure out how to get a connection to my modem. I scan for an access point on the Wii and it finds my modem but it is secure and it is calling for a password or key. I have never used my wireless connection before so I have no idea what this 'key' is. Can I find it on my computer or is it one of the serial numbers on the modem? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Chris

192.168.0.0 is not a IP address

your best bet is to try 192.168.1.1 or .2 or 192.168.2.1

try admin for the password with no username and if that doesnt work, try admin or administrator for a user with no password.

since those modem/WAPs seem to have some odd compatibility and capability issues, it wouldn't hurt to get a regular standalone WAP or a good brand name router to use instead.

try going to 10.0.0.138 and see what happens

if that doesn't work, go to Start>Run>type in CMD>press enter>type in ipconfig /all>press enter

look to see what it says under Default Gateway. Type in the IP address it gives you after that line and see where that takes you.
