You may try to reset the router by pushing the little button for 30 seconds at the back of the router..

leave the default name blank, then default password is the word password. if this failed, try putting admin on the name, then 1234 or password on the password box..

hope this should do the trick..

Router light turned into orange after changing password.


Hi Shaifali,
No worries!
- Can you log back into the router? with the new password or with the old one?
-Has your router been totally re-setted to factory defaults?
- I think you have changed the PPoE connection password which is the internet link password to ISP instead of the router password?

Let me know these questions and I will help you resolve this issue

Can not log-in..forgot password and user name


Search the Internet with the make and model of your router along with the words: default password
If someone changed the default password they are the only one that knows the password.
Go to the manufacturer's website and follow the instructions to reset the router to its default setttings which will restore the original password but you will have to reconfigure it for your network again.
Good luck!

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 192.168.1.1 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.

How do I change my internet password when I have a netgear router?Someone got my password to my internet and MY provider, which is Time Warner said I've got to go through netgear.


Hey Cypoulin,
To change the password for your netgear router back to the default so you can set it as your own again. Please follow the steps I list next :)
First I want you to try entering the default password for the router as sometimes we just forget about it being set. To do so please go to the following.
http://192.168.0.1/ - If you have the default settings. If the router addressing scheme is different you may have to alter those numbers to fit the current scheme. To check your addressing scheme please double click your networking icon from the task bar (Windows XP and down) Right-click the icon and go to "Open Network and Sharing Center" (Windows Vista / Windows 7) Click on the details of the connection. Within the list of information there should be an entry labeled: "Gateway" with a series of numbers following. (e.g. 192.168.0.1) This is the number you will use in your web browser (IE, Firefox, Chrome). Type it into the URL space like above and this will bring you to your router's login prompt.
When at the routers login prompt try the username: admin pass: 1234
(If this method does not work please use the following below.)

Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel - Netgear Routers

Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)

  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paper clip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password.

    If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.

  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.

I hope this works for you! Let me know if I can be of anymore help to you.

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.

Hello sir/madam i have problem with D-link router i never change password but now i can not log in the old password why?


Hi do you mean log in to change routers settings or connect to the network which is broadcast by router. If you mean first log in to router settings etc. If your old password don't work you should find a reset button somewhere on router if you press it it will take router to default settings and you can use default user name and password to log in. If you mean connecting to the network you should go to the settings of your router connect to the router by network cable and put 198.162.1.1 in your internet browser put your username and password (which you can find in manual or on internet (just google "D-Link DI-624M Router default username password) and check what password is and change if you like. You should find it in wireless----> security settings. Good luck and please don't forget to let me know if that was any helpful.

Wireless Internet Issues


USERNAME:admin
PASSWORD:password or password1

That is the default user/pass, if it has been changed from default, you will have to reset the router and then use the defaults I gave.

Wireless Internet stopped working. Can't reconnect.


If restarting the router and restarting computer did not work (unplug both power cables), then you need to log into the router and check network settings.

To log into router type the router IP on internet explore bar, then enter user id and password.
You find details on how to do this, IP and passwords listed on the owner manual.

If wireless security settings on router are fine, then you can reset router to factory default using the pinhole switch. You will need to enter all your broadband settings to have the router working afterward.

Password


If you happen the forgot the router's password the only way around is to do a hard reset(hold the reset button at the back of the router for 5 to 10 seconds - this will wipe out all your previous settings) on the device but if you just need to change the default password to something different here's how;

Open an Internet browser(Firefox, Internet Explorer, Opera, Safari) and enter the Wireless MAXg Router's IP address. The following is the default IP address of the Wireless MAXg Router: http://192.168.2.1

You will not be prompted to login the first time you connect to the Web User Interface during the initial setup. During the Setup Wizard procedure, you will be prompted to create a user name and password to log on to the router. If you create a user name and password, you will need to use these whenever you want to log on to the Wireless MAXg Router. The user name and password are case-sensitive.

Go to the Security tab and now you can enter or change the username and password of your US Robotics router, you can also enable wireless security(encryption) like WEP or WPA on the Security tab so that you can properly secure you router against unwanted freeloaders/computers getting wireless access through your router.

Hope this steps would help you settings up your router if you have further questions regarding setup just post a reply.

Regards,
