Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

or
Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

I forgot my pin number to this router. the connection is under my brother's name and the internet is on his lab top but not mine. i need help..


If you have forgotten pin there is really no way to get it unlocked but to do a hard rest on the router. This is only the last resort since all the changes that have been done on the router will be deleted like network name for your wireless and password for it if any. Most routers once reset will go back to admin or administrator for user name and no password or just word password it self. To so hard reset locate the reset button in the back of router which is going to be little whole and sometimes it even says reset. Use pen or something that is not sharp so you dont damage the reset and hold it in for at least 30 seconds with router being powered on(has to be on to do reset) and let it sit 3-5 minutes and then you should be able to get in to the settings. Your computer will have to be pluged in to the router with Ethernet cable sicne wireless will not work to access the router page. Most routers use one of these ip addresses that you type in internet explorer or firefox. 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1. Good luck

Unable to reset a Belkin Wireless N F5D8236-4v1 back to default


That is indeed strange. Holding in the reset button should definitely clear the wireless router memory. Are you sure that you're going to the right administration page to configure the router? It should be something like 192.168.1.1.

Also... by any chance are there other wireless networks nearby? I'm wondering if your computer accidentally connected to that while the wireless router was off... and now you're going to the wrong router.

If none of that works, try leaving the router unplugged for about five minutes. The volatile memory shouldn't last much longer than that.

I am trying to set up my wireless router to my three computers but the user name and password are not working that the guy gave me i am just tryin to get hte manual to help me


Hello there
all you have to do is reset the router, you will find a small button or hole underneath or at the back of the unit, hold it in for 30 seconds and the username and password are cleared.
I do suggest however that you get the routers software disk and set your own password as your network will be unsecured and you will have set up a wifi hot spot

kind regards and please don't forget to rate us

We just got wireless internet this past year at our house and when my dad set it up he forgot to write down the password which lets you onto the internet. So now we are able to log on through the computer...


to set the wireless settings you need to use a computer that is connected to your router or the computer that is working on your router wirelessly.

access the setup page of your router using IE on the address bar type the ip of your router, by default it is 192.168.1.1, username=admin and password=password, once your on the setuppage go to wireless settings option on the left pane. you will be able to see the wireless security there.


the reason why you dont know the wireless security for the old computers its because once you typed the security key in the computer will remembers it and save it on the system.

I have a linksys wireless G router. My exhusband put a password on it and I do not know the password. My wireless card on my laptop went out and I had to buy a new one. Now I need to have the password in...


I'm guessing you don't have the key to join the wireless network. If you have an ethernet cord you can hook your laptop directly into one of the numbered ports into the back of your router. After it's hooked up open a web browser such as internet explorer or safari. In the address bar type http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 and a password dialog should pop up and the default router username is admin and password is admin. If thosed don't work try either admin blank or blank admin. After that you should have a page with tabs at the top click on the one that says wireless, then there should be a sub-tab called security that has the wireless key there.

If the admin password doesn't work there is a small red button on the back of the router that you can press with a pen and hold down for 15 seconds to reset the router to factory defaults that means no wireless password and that the wireless netwok will go back to the default name "linksys" . Though if you choose this route you might look into putting a password on your wireless depending on how crowded your neighborhood is. If you need any more help drop me a line on this question.
