    Thanks for the rersponse. There is no (visible) button or port on back of router.

    I will check the manual if we can find it. (In the midst of a move!!)

    Any other ideas??

  • bambrickterr Dec 01, 2008

    Yes; the model number is F5D7230-4.

    I had another look for a recessed port but no joy. I can't find one, back, front or sides.

    Appreciate your help with this.

There is normally a recessed 'reset' button on the back of the router. If you press this for a set length of time (usually 10 seconds, but check your manual) it will reset your router to 'factory defaults' - including the password.

You can then enter the router configuration screen using the factory default password (I think, for Belkin, this is just blank - your manual will tell you).

Come back if this is not clear, or if you need further help.

    I'll help if I can! Can you tell me the model number of the router (sometimes there is a label attached to it?). If it's there, the reset 'button' is tiny, and may be unmarked...

    Good luck with the move!....:)

    OK, many thanks! I've got more than one manual up for this model, but the diagram I have shows the reset button as a tiny hole in the back of the router. It's between the ethernet ports and the power port.

    It's so small you can only press it with the end of an unravelled paperclip. I hope it's there? If not, it may be on the base - unfortunately the diagram and annotation don't quite match. All I can say is it's so tiny you could mistake it for something else.

    The manual advises that you press this for at least 10 seconds while the power light is on. The light will blink: when it becomes solid again, you have achieved the reset.

    Any luck? (fingers crossed)

Hello and Welcome to FixYa!
Sad but true, You can't recover your forgotten password. You can only reset the router to its factory default setting by pressing the reset on the back. Instructions for resetting the router & the factory user name / password are located in the manual.
I hope you understand. Concerned, Nooh.
