There usually is a small recessed reset button on the back if you press and hold this for 5 secs while unplugged the router will revert to factory settings. (including clearing passwords)

you can then use the default connection details, which are usually published in the quick setup guide
this info may be replicated on the manufacturer's website

Find pass key for our lap top for the family network.


Log into your router's web interface, if possible through a computer connected to the router by cable, by starting an internet browser and navigatng to its maintenance IP address, usually set by many manufacturers to 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. An authentication request will come up. As you haven't speciffied your router model, there are routers whose both user name and password fields are set to 'admin'. Other routers use 'admin' as user name only, requiring the password field to be left empty. Once you get into the router's web interface, go to the wireless settings, and change the wireless passphrase to a new one of your choice. Make sure to change the other devices, which use to connect to the router, to the same new passphrase.
If you need further details, please, provide your router model and manufacturer.
Hope you are able to sort your problems out.
Regards, Carlos

Hi i have a problem conecting my lap top ho nx5000 to wirless mode can you help me


If your running WinXP you should see an icon on the bottom right near the clock with a wireless icon. Double click on it, should now open up a windows showing a list of available wireless networks to connect to.

If you have your own Wireless router in your place find the name of that ID whatever you had set it to. If you bought a Linksys router it would say by default Linksys. If it ask for a passkey enter the passkey you had setup on the router.

Now if you can see any wireless networks or you do but can't connect see if your laptop has a on/off switch for your wireless card. If so switch it on and bam wireless freedom you have.

Need help getting wireless netgear to work with lap top. Lap top was reconfigured and don't have old password.


If you don't have the wireless password for your wireless connection. The thing to do is log into the Router's webpage via the Router's IP address. From there you can go to the wireless section and in most routers this section shows the wireless password.

If you have trouble getting on to the Router's webpage. Just comment back on this and I can probably step you through it.
