The password you are referring might be WEP or WPA which assigned by your router. So you need to reset your router not the Wireless adapter. After you reset the router's Network Key (WPA/WEP)
You can reset your Range extender too; Press the Reset button on the back of the Range Expander for about ten seconds. This will reset the unit to its
default settings

Good Luck

I lost my net gear n150 cd and i want to change my password..


How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password Symptoms:
  • You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
  • You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
  • You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network

Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.

If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.

To view or reset a wireless network password:

  1. 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.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.
  3. 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. 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.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

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 there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

To reset the printer's wireless network adapter:

You will need the USB cable temporarily to successfully configure the printer. Thank you for choosing Lexmark.

I forgot my password for belkin f5d7231-4


Do you mean the password for the wireless network or the password for the router. If you don't know the wireless network key or the password then you will need to access the router set up and you will find the wireless password there. If you don't know the password to access the router then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router. Click Here for step by step solutions
