It depends on the model. Some routers have to be reset for 20 seconds or longer. If you can provide the model and make, I might be of help. Also, take note of you current settings, for they will be erased.

  1. Choose a laptop or WiFi device that is currently connected to your network. If none of your devices are connected, use an Ethernet cable and connect a computer or laptop directly to your wireless gateway.
  2. Open a web browser and go to the Admin Tool ( - this is the wireless gateway's administration site. The default settings are:
    • Username: admin
    • Password: password (case-sensitive)
    • Note: If you changed your Admin Tool password previously, you will need to use your new login information. If you don't remember your Admin Tool password, you will need to factory reset your wireless gateway. Instructions on how to do this can be found by reviewing the wireless gateway user guides at Wireless Gateway Guides.
  3. On the left navigation menu, select Gateway, then Connection and then Wi-Fi.
  4. Under Private Wi-Fi Network, you'll see the Name (SSID) of your WiFi network. (You may want to write down this information.)

  6. Now that you have your Network Name (SSID) and Password (Network Key), you can connect your WiFi devices to your network.

Forgot login password

Overview If you have forgotten your Linksys password, you have a couple of options. You can try to use the default settings to log into the router settings and change your password, or you can simply reset the router and set it up again. Either way, you will need to create a new password to use in the future. Read on to learn what to do about a lost Linksys router password.
Try the Default You can try to log in to the Linksys setup page and create a new router password using the default user name and password. This will only work if you did not change the default password when you originally set up your router.
Open a web browser window, such as Internet Explorer or Firefox. Type into the address bar. Do not include any prefixes, such as http:// or www. Press Enter or click Go. A dialog box will open prompting you for a user name and password. Try leaving both fields blank and clicking OK. If this does not give you access, type admin into the User Name box and Password into the Password box. Click OK again. If you succeed, you can configure your router settings again and create a new password. Read the first article in this series, Configuring a Linksys Router Settings, to learn how to do so.
Reset the Router
If you are unable to log in to the Linksys router setup page using the default user name and password, you do have another option to solve your lost Linksys router password problem, which is to reset your router. 3d1cb9ca10deccfc3b6a854cda8b29a7cd240d6d_small.jpg

Look for a small Reset button on the back, front or the bottom of your Linksys router. The location of the button depends on the router model, so look carefully. As a precaution the buttons are small and inconspicuous, so that users do not accidentally reset their routers.
Once you have located the Reset button, press and hold it for at least ten seconds. You may need to use something with a small point, such as the end of a paperclip or a pencil tip to depress the button. Release the button and wait for the router to start back up. This will restore the router to its initial factory settings as it was when you first set it up. You will need to configure it again and choose a new password. Refer to the first article in this series for instructions on how to do so.

Trying to setup another device off the router and can't remember the password to let the device finish it's setup?

If you can't remember the password, just reset the router by pressing and holding it's small "reset button" for 30 seconds.
THIS WILL CAUSE IT TO LOSE ALL SETTINGS, but your password will be reset to the default one, "admin". You should change this password after reseting.
Try not to forget it again :-)

My pc connects automatically with my netgear router. How do i get my friend's pc do connect to my router? My pc never asks for a password but my friend's does and I don't recall having set a password....

Your wireless network must be secured. You must have entered the password when yu tried to connect to the wireless networ at the first time. The password is saved on your computer. that's why it is not asking you for the password. Now you will need to check the wireless settings of the router.
There must be a computer online using the router. On that computer open the set up page of the router. On this page you will fisn all the wireless settings of the router.

I cant set up wireless router modle number WRT16ON

Is your computer reading the disk. I mean when you insert it, open "My Computer" is the cd showing? If it is can you right click it, choose "open". Create a folder on your "C" drive and copy and paste the data to the folder. Install it from this folder.
If it isn't reading it, can you go to a friends and perhaps transfer the data to a memory stick?

Need to know how to get password on apple computer

Id syggest that if you are interested in making this a learning experience and you have the original software ... open the case. Look for the BIOS battery ... slip a business card in the connection - leave it there for 5 minutes. This will remove all BIOS settings.

Turn the machine on with a system disk in the floppy or CD drive. Reinstall the operating system.

If this is over your head ... please google "reinstall my apple operating system". You will get lots of instruction on how to do this.

As far as getting her password ... you probably have a better chance at winning the lottery.

Have fun

Le me know how you make out
