If the default username and password is not working you wont be avle to access the router setup page, so the next step that you need to do is tor eset the router and reconfigure it back, to reset it press and hold teh reset button of the router for 15 seconds while the power is ON then after that the default username and password should be working...

Can't get a link when trying to turn a Netgear router WGR614v8 into access point with a xfinity SMCD3GNV as the host router.


Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to
http://www.routerlogin.net/ or http://www.routerlogin.com./
Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
If you cannot log into your router:
Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults.
however, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.
If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection.
Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and Clicking Apply.
If there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings.

Hi i've forgotten the password i set for my router about 18 months ago, so i can access wifi on my ipod touch, i've tried to reset and restore to factory settings using the button on the back,...


Hi,
Since you reset the router, the username and password were set back to its default values as well. For Netgear, the username and password is: Username = admin Password = password

What is my user name?


a username is a unique name which separates users so that they can customize their settings or set up an online account profiles. If you are searching for a default username try

These are the most common default usernames

I have a nieghbor who has somehow found out my password. How can I change my password so he can't use it anymore.


you can change your wireless encryption password by going to internet explorer
http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1
the default login/pass
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
if this does not work you will need to reset your router by holding the reset button for 30 seconds or more when you power it on.
  1. Use an Ethernet cable to connect a computer to any one of the four LAN ports of the NETGEAR router.
  2. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  3. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin;password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.

    For Steps 4-9, refer to Figure A below.
  4. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  5. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box.
  6. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
  7. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into thePassphrase box.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  8. Click Apply to save the settings.

Need password to my netgear router n 300


what is the model #?
Most netgear routers default to a username of "admin" and password is either " admin ", "password" or it is just blank. Those are the defaults unless someone changed it.
If you cant get in you can hold down the reset button on the back for 30 seconds (while it is plugged into power) and that will set it back to factory default settings then one of the above should work.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

I need to change the network name and password


Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.

If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router: Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults.

How i get my netgear name and webkey i had it wrote down but lost it?


The only way to recover a password is to reset the router to Factory Default.

To do this:

Use a paper clip or something small and hold the reset button on the back for 10-12 seconds. (WARNING! this will remove all settings and bring it back to the factory default, you will have to re-configure the router.)

Once defaulted, enter admin for the username and password for the password.

I am trying to connect another computer to my wireless network but i do not know my netgear code, where do i find this?


Netgear code? Can you be more specific?

Are you referring to the password required to connect to your wireless network called "Netgear"? I assume you're being asked for a password on the 2nd computer when trying to connect to the wireless network called "Netgear".

  1. In a web browser, enter the router's IP address - either http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 by default.
  2. When prompted for a Username and Password, enter the default username and password (admin; password) unless you have already changed it. NETGEAR recommends changing the default password to increase the security of your network.
  3. Select Wireless Settings from the Setup menu in the left-hand navigation bar.
  4. Under Wireless Network, enter your desired network name in the Name (SSID) box. This is currently set to "Netgear" most likely.
  5. Under Security Options, select WPA-PSK [TKIP] + WPA2-PSK [AES].
  6. Under Security Options (WPA-PSK + WPA2-PSK), enter your desired network password into the Passphrase box.
    • WRITE DOWN or KEEP NOTE of your network name, security option and passphrase - you will require them to connect wireless computers and devices to your network.
  7. Click Apply to save the settings.
Once you've set this password, you can use it to connect to "Netgear" on your second computer.
