We have one laptop and one desktop computer set up to the router. We are adding an additional laptop. I do not want to reset the router because the two are working fine. I do not know the password, however, to add an additional router I need the password. Please direct me how to do this. Thank you.

You forgot to tell that you have to plug ethernet port (1), if you want configure something on the AP! so if you try to connect to AP and you pluged to another ethernet port than (1), you`ll not able to connect the AP on 192.168.1.1/ ;)
