There's no pin #, mac addy, IP, serial #. Who's the mfg of the router? Also if all else fails, there's usually a hard reset button on the router/AP that will reset to default.

It really is.

Should be on the bottom, depends what kind of router you have. None I've owned had a "pin" number, only a serial number and and ID number.

Usually on the bottom or the back. It could be on a sticker, or engraved. Also the box should have it.

You have to login to it.

Go to Start > Run > type CMD

In the black box type ipconfig

Find your gateway....like 192.168.1.1

Open a web browser type that number in after the http://

you should get a login prompt....
type admin and then the password

Go to wireless network > security > security key

It's the pin number to your debit card.

If it's a 2wire from AT&T it is on a sticker somewhere with some other info. Just 6 or 8 digits if I recall correctly. I don't have one here but do at the store. The sticker is on the top right corner on the bottom of mine.

Google how to do a hard reset to it. There may be a hole over an internal switch you need to press and hold. A Cisco home-version wireless router requires the reset be held for about twenty seconds while powering on the router and it will reload the factory default values into all the configuration registers.

Is it a 2Wire? See my post above. There is most definitely a numeric PIN for the WEP on a 2Wire router/AP. Although if it has been changed you may need to reset to factory defaults to get it set back to that.

Are you picking up someone elses signal?
