Windows 7: Windows 7 Updates for New laptop

I did something.. that had to do with 3 different kinds of set up.. I think I chose the Work group.. I was so tired when I finally got to that part.. I should have left it alone... so I'm not sure I've completed what I should have been doing. that's why I ask about it.

But workgroup is for sharing files or printers between PCs. That has nothing to do with securing the router. Who setup your router?

If you try to connect to your router, does it ask you type in a key?

whs.. I did whatever has been done to it.
the work group thing is what I did..
I don't recall being ask for a passowrd at all... after the work group thing was finished I was falling asleep.. so I stopped and went to bed.

I hope I've not messed up something important... surely if so ..there must be a work around.
thanks again.

Let's check. Open an Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1 into the address field and let's see whether your router control comes up. If that does not work try 192.168.1.2. If it asks for name and paswword use admin for name and password for password (not very innovative, I know). If you get in, snoop around for the Wap2 password and see whether that is one you set. If not, put one in that you can remember. The more letters/numbers, the better.

Are you wired to the router ? You have to be wired to the router to make changes.
At least with my equipment anyway.

192.168.1.1 is the default.

Zombie is right - I forgot to mention that. The operation only works with a system that is hard wired to the router.

PS: now you confuse me because you call it a hub. Is that a router or a hub (switch) ??
