Re: Password retrieval

There?s not much you can do. Try to put the router?s default password which is ?admin? (lower case) and then copy the settings so you can reconstruct them after the reset of the router. Hope it works good luck.

Cannot remember my password. Is there a way to retrieve it.

There is no way to retrieve it but you can do a hardware reset of the router which will take it back to factory defaults and allow you to set it up again.
Unplug it and look for a reset button these are generally recessed in so will need a pen to push them in.

Want to change password for LinkSys Wireless Router. Also want to make outgoing information secure.

If you have forgotten the username/password for the router you can reset it by pushing and holding reset button for 15 seconds.

Then following the steps here:

The later pages describe how to configure security and change your password.

If you are new to wireless I suggest selecting WEP or WPA-PSK.

I lost my encryption key password

As far as I know there is no way to retrieve a lost encryption key password. All I am aware that you can do is to re-set the router to factory defaults and pretty much start from scratch. I am sure not what you wanted to hear.

Forgot Access Point Password

All you have to do to reset the password on the router is to reset the router. You just have to find the reset button and hold it for about 15 seconds. If you have any problems with reseting just look at this pdf.

Hawking wireless router to reset password

If you press the reset button you only make a reboot.
To reset all the value to the factory setting you have to:
- Power off the device
- Hold the reset button pressed
- While you press the reset button put the power back on

Now your gateway address is again, login is admin and password is not present (leave it blank).
