Hello,

Go into your router configuration, and make sure Wireless SSID Broadcast is enabled.

To access your router configuration, enter you default gateway into the address bar of your browser. Commonly it is 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1.

If neither works, you can find it in IPconfig. Open a command prompt and run ipconfig /all .
Good luck!

That is the password for the router. If you can't figure out the password, post the brand of router and we will try to find the default password.

The default credentials for Linksys routers are

User: admin
Password:
[blank]

If bad comes to worst, you can reset the router, but at this point, we don't know for sure what the problem is. Resetting the router requires more effort than we are willing to spend, right now.

The password must have been changed. Contact your network admin, or if that is you, consider resetting the router.

Yeh best thing is to reset your router and re-create the SSID.
