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

I need password for my Wii to connect to the internet. I cannot find it.


What do you get when you log into the router? The password under Wireless tab is either visible or you need to remember it when you created it because it's invisible.

I am trying to connect a new kindle to my existing wi fi (cisco linksys) but cannot remember the password I entered for my linksys.


I think you meant the access key password for your wireless security and not the password for the router itself (2 separate passwords).
I'll give you both solutions starting with the wireless key password.
1. access the router configuration page by typing http://192.168.1.1 in your browsr. 2. This should pop up a log in window asking for user name & password 3. The default settings for a linksys router say to leave the username blank and type admin for the password. 4. once you're in look for the Wireless tab and click it then click on wireless security 5. your password will be listed there in the shared key box.
Now if its your router access password that you need you'll need to reset the router if you can't remember it and then follow the steps above to create a wireless security password. Here's how you reset the router. Remember that all custom settings you may have set will be erased and the router will go back to original factory configuration settings
1. On the back of the router you'll find a small hole or indentation and it may or may not have the word reset printed by it. 2. Find a paper clip or something of the same size and use it to press the reset button for about 2-3 seconds 3. Router will be reset
Good luck

About a year ago a friend set up our wireless router the problem is they didnt know they were doing it and now we dont know the Password to log in on other wireless machines laptops etc i simply need to...


Log in to your router's configuration page using your internet browser by typing "http://192.168.1.1" in the address bar.
Type in “admin” for both username and password which is the default user name and password.
Click on “Setup” at the top
Scroll down to “Network Setup”


If you have forgotten the router's user name and password, and the default user name and password aren't working, try resetting the router back to factory defaults:

With the router powered on, hold the reset button (located on the back of the router) for 25 seconds. Then disconnect the power from the router and wait 10 seconds before plugging it back in.

After the reset, you should be able to login to the router with the default user name and password.

You can secure your wireless network wit WEP or WAP code.
For that Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable then you can access it with following default link.
http://192.168.0.1
or
http://192.168.1.1
For belkin router http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.1

If you are not able to access it with above ip then check your computers ip address gateway ip is your router ip try with it.
Then it ask for user name and password.
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or "password" or blank.
Then you can see configuration page of router.
Click on wireless settings then enable WEP Security then add WEP code .It is your password to connect wi fi.Then save settings and restart router.
Then you can connect your wi fi network with that code.
Thanks for using FixYa.

I have forgotten my password and need to connect a new computer to my router-the router is a belking plus mimo and I have a linksys wireless g speed booster -what do I do to fix this? Many thanks


Reset the both routers in order to go to the factory default setting.
BELKIN (192.168.2.1) normally has no user name or password. So just hit enter.
Linksys (192.168.1.1)
User Name: admin
Pass Word: admin

You can always change the user name and password

Good Luck!

Cannot remember what my password is for my wireless router. I want to use a laptop from it. Any ideas?


There are two possible solutions, depending on which password you can't remember. If you remember the password to log into the router, you can go to the wireless security page and see the wireless password (you may have to uncheck the "obscure password" box to see it). If the password you can't remember is the one needed to log into the router, I believe your only recourse is to hold the reset button for at least 10 seconds to restore the factory defaults. NOTE: you will then have to re-configure the router as if you had just taken it out of the box.

Connecting laptop to a friend's netgear


You can have your friend log into the router with their laptop and check the setting in the router. Of course, your friend will need to remember what his password is for the router as well. If he doesnt remember that, then the only solution is to reset the router to the default.

You will need to log into the Router to recieve either the WEP/WPA/WPA-PSK keys from the routers HTTP:// interface Mind tho MACS dont work very well with WEP they do alot better with WPA format

Password


In order for you to find your routers address, click START, RUN, type CMD followed by RETURN or ENTER, and type IPCONFIG/ALL followed by RETURN or ENTER. Look for DEFAULT GATEWAY. Put that address in your browser to access it.
