    plug your computer directly into the router with an ethernet cable. Access the router setup page, and look for wireless settings. Details of router would be useful for people to help. :rolleyes:

    On the back of the Draytek, the opposite end from the on-off switch is an indented reset switch. Push it and hold it still it starts flashing quickly and then let go.

    On mine at least (2600) it is 192.168.1.1 and then "admin" and left blank to access the settings from your browser. After a reset that is.

    Using Airport Admin

    Hi,

    If you are an administrator to this router, or have access to use the AirPort Admin Utility you can find the WEP key and pass phrase. If you would like the WEP passphrase only and do not have admin access to your router then you can find that in the Keychain utility.

    To find the WEP key and pass phrase using the AirPort Admin Utility start by opening it up. I use a nice little application called Quicksilver so its as simple as typing it. Now, just click on the Password button in the top left of the window and up pops your key and passphrase.

    Regards,

    t

    I'd venture to say you're misunderstanding your wireless network. PCs typically do not broadcast a wireless signal, are you referring to the signal that is broadcasted from your wireless router? If so, try resetting the router if you cannot remember your password.
