Default Disable Device Ownership Password

Just got a RangeMax Wireless-N Gigabit Router.

How do I disable the device ownership password? I want the normal setup I've always had with WEP or WPA-PSK (TKIP) so I just have to punch in a password when I connect to my wireless network.

I've even tried taking all security off and leaving my wireless network open, and then clicked the "disable router pin" box, but no matter what, I still get asked for a Device Ownership Password. I know what it is, I just don't want to have to know that AND WEP key just to get people on my network.

Thanks!

Which router model?

Have you tried selecting ‘Disable Router’s PIN’ in the Advanced Wireless Settings page?

Maybe it’s an Intel chipset that supports WPS, the Intel client utility is a pain to configure even if the router pin is disabled. I switched to using the Windows WZC.
