I need a password to get wifi


When setting up your Wifi router, you have to setup your WEP2 protocol. There you give in the password for your router. Perhaps you should ask the person who did setup the router what password (s)he gave in.

If you are trying to connect to a router, that is not yours, even when you know the password, but you don\'t have permission of the owner, it would be illegal

What's redheadchick101's password


If the person, who did setup this account does not know his / her password, how should anyone else know it?

Please when you loose you door key, you can\'t open the door. And unless someone else has a key, the door can\'t be opened, without force.

We can\'t guess any password and any attempt to open an account not belonging to the person self, is illegal and can be punished.

Please don\'t ask us to do something illegal. That apart from it will be impossible to crack this.

Don't know my password


Are you looking for wireless network password or Linksys router password?
If you are trying to connect to the wireless network then it might be asking you for the wireless network key or the passphrase.
You can open the setup page of the router and check the wireless settings.
Read Wireless network key WEP WPA

My daughter cant access my router cause it ask for a password


I take it you are trying to get on a wireless network with her computer.
Sounds like your network is password protected (it should be).
You need to find that password and give it to her. If you don't know how to access the router from your computer, go to the website of the manufacturer of the router and look for the instructions. The particular thing you are looking for is wireless security setup.

Upon powering on the system won't go past the boot


> problem with barebone system
> asks for a password in the Setup

Turn the computer off.
Disconnect the AC power.
Look on the motherboard for three pins in a row, with a jumper between #1 and #2.
Move that jumper to connect #2 and #3. Count to ten.
Move that jumper back to #1 and #2.
The motherboard has been reset to its "factory" settings, i.e., NO password.
Connect the AC power.
Turn the computer on.
Press <DEL> to enter Setup.
It should NOT ask for a password.

Forgot password


To ilysurita, cj_mom, top_shutta…
First can I clarify what is meant by a ‘lost password’ …. The original poster here is asking about the password needed to login to the router configuration pages.

If you know the password to login to the router configuration pages, you can still get access to the network key (also known as passphrase, WPA or WEP key, PSK, pre-shared key) – which is the key Windows asks for to connect a new computer to the network. It will be found under a heading like ‘Wireless Security’ or ‘Wireless Settings’ within the router configuration pages. For this model, you can find the router configuration pages by typing www.routerlogin.net (or .com) into a web browser, or http://192.168.0.1

If you don’t know the username/password to login to your router, try using the defaults – for this model, they are admin and password.

However, if the router login username/password has been forgotten, the only way to regain access to the router configuration settings is to reset the router, as described in my posting above. I don’t know of any shortcuts to this one. :(

If you have to resort to this, you might want to wait for whoever set up the router to help with this. This is because resetting the router will remove all your settings – password, network key, ISP connection info – so you will lose your internet connection altogether until it is set up again.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to spend some time and patience, you can have a go yourself.

If you have your original setup CD this may contain a software wizard to walk you through it. If not, you might be able to download a setup wizard from the router manufacturer’s website, along with a quick installation guide (and a manual).

The Netgear site also has very clear troubleshooting and support pages which will help with setup, even if you don’t have any setup software:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/wgr614v9.asp

Make sure you use a wired connection. Also, print off all the information you need before you begin, as you will not be able to access the internet while you are setting up the router.
Good luck whatever you decide to do
