If you happen the forgot the router's password the only way around is to do a hard reset(hold the reset button at the back of the router for 5 to 10 seconds - this will wipe out all your previous settings) on the device but if you just need to change the default password to something different here's how;

Open an Internet browser(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) and enter the Wireless MAXg Router's IP address. The following is the default IP address of the Wireless MAXg Router: http://192.168.2.1

You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.

Go to the Security tab and now you can enter or change the username and password of your US Robotics router, you can also enable wireless security(encryption) like WEP or WPA on the Security tab so that you can properly secure you router against unwanted freeloaders/computers getting wireless access through your router.

Hope this steps would help you settings up your router if you have further questions regarding setup just post a reply.

Regards,

Change a Network Password

A network password is a combination of alphanumeric characters that users must enter in order to access a local area network.

Wireless routers use this password to protect the network from unauthorized users who could potentially steal bandwidth from the network, access sensitive data and view the information being sent to and from the network's router.

To change your network password, you must log on to the router's URL and access its security settings.

Type the router's URL into your web browser.
To access and change any settings on your router, you must log in to the router's URL.

This will allow your computer to communicate with the router and access the router's main page. When accessing the router's URL, use the same computer that was used to install the router.

If you do not know the router's URL, look for this information in the router's manual or on the manufacturer's website.

After entering the URL into the web browser's address bar, press "Enter" or click the "Go" button on the browser.

Input the router's default username and password.

Once you enter the router's URL into your web browser, a dialog box will appear requiring you to input the router's username and password. (Note that this password is not the network password.)
Unless you have previously changed the router's username and password, input the defaults.

Many routers have the default username of "admin" and have the password set as "password" or have no password at all.

To find out your router's default username and password, check the documentation that came with your router or check the manufacturer's website. Click "OK" to proceed to the router's main page.

Access the router's security settings.
Depending on your brand of router, there will be tabs or links on the router's main page.

One of these will contain the page for changing your security settings.
Find and click the link or tab.

This page will contain several textboxes, one of which will contain the SSID (name of the network) and two textboxes for changing the network password.

Select an encryption type and change the network password.
Most new routers offer WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) security or WPA security.

Select the type of security and change the network password by typing in a new password in the two text boxes.

When you are finished, click "OK."

Save your changes and log out.

After changing the network password, you must click "Save" or "Apply" to keep the password change.

Log out of the router by clicking the "Logout" or "Exit" link on the router's main page.

If you leave the main page open for a certain period of time, you may be logged out automatically.

Changing the password


You want to change the password??

If yes the follow the given instructions::

Log in to the router's administrative console through a Web browser using the current password and username.

In the router's administrative console, navigate to the appropriate administration / security section where the password setting can be changed. In this example, the Administration tab at the top of the screen contains the Linksys router's password setting.

Choose a suitable password based on the standard guidelines for strong password security. Enter the new password in the Password box, and re-enter the same password a second time in the space provided. Entering the password a second time ensures you did not accidentally type in the wrong password the first time.

The password change is not applied on the router until you save or confirm the change. In this example, click the Save Settings button at the bottom of the page to have the new password take effect. You will see a confirmation window appear briefly to confirm the password change was made successfully. The new password takes effect immediately; rebooting the router is not required.

How to change password for asus wireless router?


In order to get your router back to the original settings, you must push in the reset button (usually on the back of the router) for somewhere between 10 and 30 seconds depending on the router. You may need a pin or something small to push in the button, because it can be recessed. Once you have reset the router, the username and password will be changed to the defaults, admin and password, respectively. One thing you must remember is that resetting the router will change all of the router settings back to the factory settings. This means you will lose all of the changes you made since you got the router. Make sure to write down any things you've changed, so you can change them back after the reset. Also, I recommend updating to the latest firmware after the reset.
If you need more help post back! Thumbs and testimonial are welcome!
