Manage the WiFi Network Settings
AC1600 WiFi VDSL/ADSL Modem Router Model D6400
modem router provides. Some WiFi devices automatically connect to the first open
network without WiFi security that they discover.
•If your computer or WiFi device is trying to connect to your network with its old
settings (before you changed the settings), update the WiFi network selection in your
computer or WiFi device to match the current settings for your network.
•Does your WiFi device display as an attached device? (See View Devices Currently
on the Network on page 235.) If it does, it is connected to the network.
•Are you using the correct network name (SSID) and password?
Use WPS to Add a Device to the WiFi Network
WPS (Wi-Fi Protected Setup) lets you connect a computer or WiFi device to the modem
router’s network without entering the WiFi network passphrase or key. Instead, you use a
WPS button or enter a PIN to connect.
If you use the push button method, the WiFi device that you are trying to connect must
provide either a physical button or a software button. If you use the PIN method, you must
know the PIN of the WiFi device that you are trying to connect.
WPS supports WPA and WPA2 WiFi security. If your modem router network is open (no WiFi
security is set, which is not the default setting for the modem router), connecting with WPS
automatically sets WPA + WPA2 WiFi security on the modem router network and generates a
random passphrase. You can view this passphrase (see Manage the Basic WiFi Settings and
WiFi Security of the Main Network on page 93).
Note: WPS and WPA/WPA2 enterprise security or WEP security cannot
function together. When you enable WPA/WPA2 enterprise security or
WEP security, WPS is disabled.
Use WPS with the Push Button Method
For you to use the push button method to connect a WiFi device to the modem router’s WiFi
network, the WiFi device that you are trying to connect must provide either a physical button
or a software button. You can use the physical button and software button to let a WiFi device
join only the main WiFi network, not the guest WiFi network.
To let a WiFi device join the modem router’s main WiFi network using WPS with the
push button method:
1. Launch a web browser from a computer or WiFi device that is connected to the network.
2. Type http://www.routerlogin.net.
A login window opens.
3. Enter the user name and password for the modem router.
