password for virginmedia 019311 wifi

Hi ,

I just got an Amazon Kindle and have been trying to get on line through my router.

Kindle detects good strength on  Virgin media 019311 band. However, to get connected  I need a password for that band,

 

Anyone know the password or how to get it please ?????

 

Thanks Adrian

You don't say what kind of router you are using, however if you log into your router from your pc. Type the router's web address, (usually 192.168.1.1) into a web browser on your pc it should take you to your routers login page. If these have not been changed you should be able to use the default username, password combination to log into your router and retrieve the wireless password.

more than likely you have virginmedia hub, if you look on the back/side of the router will have sticker saying passphrase this is your wifi password, to have it checked you can goto

http://192.168.0.1 username admin password changeme 

if click on wireless settings this will show the passphrase to use.

Re: password for virginmedia 019311 wifi

Hi. sorry to jump onto the back of someone elses thread but I cannot find anything that relates to a pass phrase on my router. It's a DSL 2640R. I've tried to connect my laptop wirelessly and have tried the phrase 'preinstall' and when it finds my router it just goes into a loop and does not connect. It can see the router and the strength is great but will not connect.

 

Any ideas please?

 

Many thanks.

This may help as you it's a different default WPA key if you are a National customer with a D-Link router:

 

How to change the wireless network name and password on National with a D-Link router

 

Please note that the default wireless password for your router is the word virgin followed by your main account password. For example, if your main account password is dave321, your wireless security key would be virgindave321.
