There should be a Reset buttom in the back, hold it for about 1 minute. If that doesnt resolve the issue try and unplug the router from power and press the reset buttom for one minute again.

    ok Bro i got your fix. Try This



    Unplug all LAN cables from the router.

    •Unplug the router power cord connector from the back of the device.

    •Using a paper clip or something similar that will fit into the reset hole, press continue to hold the reset button, then carefully reinsert the power cord, making sure not to release the reset button in the process.

    •Continue to hold the reset button in for at least 15 seconds after inserting the power cord, then release it. After about 10-25 seconds the router will boot and it will be set back to the original factory default settings.

    By default the password on the router is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1

    Resetting the 4-Port Router to factory default:

    •With the router powered on, press and hold the reset button for exactly seven seconds, this will restore the router to factory default.

    •This also applies to: F5D5230-4 4-Port Cable/DSL Gateway Router, F5D6230-3 Wireless Cable/DSL Gateway Router (11Mbps), F5D6231-4 802.11b Wireless Cable/DSL Gateway Router, and F5D7230-4 Wireless G Router Resolution.

    •Note: By default the password on the router is left blank, and the default IP address is 192.168.2.1

Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

Sounds defective. Disconnect it, flip it over and give it a smell. If you smell burnt wires or plastic (typically a faint smell, but a smell nonetheless) the router's toast.

We do not have a disk anymore for our router and we want the internet to have a password so what should we do? It is making our internet very slow


In order for you to make the a wireless password on your router you need to manually configure the router by accessing its user interface where you can change and enable the security for your wireless network so you're sure that no one can connect to your network except you, If you're not sure on how to do that it will be better if you contact this number so a tech can wlak you through with the process in securing your wireless network 1-877-787-8749 they are open 24/7.......

Forgot the password/code/security to let somebody else onto my linksys home wireless network. Don't remember how to do any of it or retrieve the security code to access the secure wireless network


Hi,

The easiest would be to reset the router using the small recessed button at the back of the unit. Performing a full hard reset (pressing reset more than 10 seconds) would clear the password. Of course, this action would also clear all other configurations and settings reverting the unit back to factory default.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

I came back from vacation and my wireless network is showing up as security encripted. I've never set a security code how do I reset?


Hi,

Two way to remove security encryption:
1. disable in your wireless setup (Either the WEP or WPA);
2. full reset the router. Press the small recessed button for more than 10 seconds. (However this will also remove and and all settings of the router including the WAN)

For simplicity, perhaps option ! would be the safest for your requirement.

If for some reason the above does not work for you, pls post back brand and model of your router.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back as requested, how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.
