I'm not sure anyone has any kind of password cracker yet for those routers, but if you don't mind losing all the settings on the router, routers can be usually be reset by pressing a button somewhere on it. You probably have to hold it down for a certain amount of time. (sometimes you have to power it on or off with the button pressed) I'd search for your router's model number on the internet to see if anyone has any other solutions.

Forgot user name & password to Linksys wireless EA3500. How can I retrieve it?


did you change the username and password on the router

if not
1) it maybe written on a label on the router
2) often it is
admin
admin

if you changed it , then you could try using the factory reset button on the device to return to factory settings

If the router was supplied by your broadband supplier they may have setup a username and password themselves and in which case you would need to contact them

How to blocked the wireless


You can change the wireless settings of the router and make it secured. So that no one will be able to connect to your wireless network without a password.
Do not share your wireless network password with anybody.
If you want you can also disable the wireless broadcasting at all.

For this you will need to access the settings page of the router and change the settings manually.

Connect the computer to the router with the Ethernet cable and open the setup page of the router using 192.168.1.1

Go to wireless tab and make it secured.

Forgot my password on my linksys wireless G broadband and i cant sign in from my laptop


yippers, that happens, use your cell phone number next time. So you need to log into the router and create new wireless security password, and change channel to 11 or so and free up interference with wireless land line phones.

I HAVE A LINKSYS wireless-B broadband router 2.4 Ghz 802.11 Model BEFW11S4, and i am on guest account and i do not have a disk for instilation so is there a way to instal it without a disk?


You dont need an admin account or installation disk to install the Linksys router that you have.
Just get an Ethernet Cable plugged in to 1 of the 4 ports at the back of your router and plug it to your computer.
Then Access your router via your computer by opening Internet Explorer and type 192.168.1.1 to the address bar.

if it would ask you for Username and Password, default should be the one below.

Username:
Password: Admin

As you can see you just need leave the password blank and put admin to the passowrd.

if this password doesnt work just press the reset button at the back of the router for ten seconds and restart the router.

After that try accesing the router again. It should now let you access your routers setup page.

Forgot network password


Hello...if you need to retrieve your network key, eg to connect a new laptop to the internet, this can be found within your router settings.

Here's a rough guide:

1. Type your router IP address, eg http://192.168.1.1 or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser address bar

2. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt. The defaults for Linksys are username: (left blank) and password: admin : but if you have set a router password/username, please enter these.

3. In the router user interface, go to the section headed Wireless Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around a little. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).

Your network key will be somewhere here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK, network key, WPA shared key, passphrase etc – but that’s the one you need.

For more details, you could pick up a manual from the Linksys site or view the help pages; otherwise, please come back to Fixya with your model number, and let us know how we can help. Good luck

New laptop want to connect but forgot key


what you want exactly?password for what? username and password for internet in subscriber? or just WEP for wireless key password?
if you forgot the password for username and password for subscriber....theres an option,i dont know what kind of subscriber do you have in your country...if you forgot the username and passowrd you can ask in the subscriber.
regarding in the WEP password for wireless,it doesnt matter,try this..
type 192.168.1.1 in the internet toolbar
username:admin
password:admin
and you can see the configuration,check the wireless settings for WEP...

Passphrase


Since you forgot the security ket for the wireless network you need to access the router setup page using the a computer that is working fine with the router,
On the internet exploreer address bar of the working computer type in 192.168.1.1 , then that should be asking you for a username and password, just leave the username blank and password is admin. If tha admin password didn't work try typing your commonly use password.
If you're already on the setup page of the router, Just go to wireless tab then there's a wireless security sub tab there where you can find the security key that you need...

Hope that helps...........
