How did you you log in the modem / router? Can you log in the modem/router's website/address on your windows computer right now, and look at its settings?

Thank you

I used the numbers on the modem as I said it previously worked but now it keeps saying encription is wrong

Expert:  Viet - TV Tech replied 5 years ago.

Can I connect remotely to your windows computer, so I can confirm the modem's encryption directly through your computer together with you?

When you are available, please reply back at the box below to continue. Thank you,
