Default how do I remove my security?

My stiletto will only give me the "Channel unavailable" message when in internet mode. From the forum I understand I need to turn off my security or I may need a new unit. How do I check to see if my security is off?

What type or brand name router or access point do you have?

Most of these things have a reset button the back or bottom of them.

You need to login to the routers admin interface and change the 'Wireless Security' to 'Disabled'.

You can access the 327W through your browser by default 192.168.1.1
If you access the modem first time and it is still in default mode, the user=admin and password=password. You can configure the wireless settings in the configuration menu/wireless. From the menu - 'Configuration' -> 'Wireless' select Security - Set 'Wireless Security' to 'Disabled'.

Here is a 'how-to' from the web...

you might not have to turn off you protection, I have used mine by entering the password. also, make sure your router is sending 802.11 B. A "G" router will work, but it has to be set to send "B".

When you are at work you are using their network, when you are home you are using the work network, they have nothing to do with one another.
You should go in to your home router and turn off every protection you see, then set it to only broadcast on 802.11B. If you do this and it still doesn't work, then you have problems. If it does work, then start trying to turn some security back on, and you can set your router to send out on B and G simultaniously. To find out what is causing your problem, you should turn each thing on by itself, then try it out.
