Where is the 8 digit pin on my Intellinet router?

When I try to connect the Wireless network of my Intellinet router, Windows 7 displays the message below. However, there is no label with a pin code on the router.
Type the 8-digit PIN from the router label

Solution: Perform the following steps.

 

  1. Connect to the router with a network cable to one of the LAN ports
  2. Open the admin menu at http://192.168.2.1
  3. Login with admin / 1234.
  4. Click on GENERAL SETUP -> WIRELESS -> SECURITY SETTINGS
  5. Set "Encryption" to WPA Pre-Shard key
  6. Set the WPA UNICAST to WPA2 (AES) or WPA2 (Mixed)
  7. Set the pre-shard key format to passphrase.
  8. In the field Pre-Shared Key type in the password for the wireless network. It should be at least 8 characters in length. Write down this password. You will need to enter the password when you connect with your WLAN clients to the network.
  9. Click APPLY and APPLY again to restart the router.
  10. Wait for about two minutes, then re-scan your WLAN networks on your Windows 7 system and connect just like before. Now you need to type in the password you set up under step 8.
