You can do a hard rest on the router by holding the reset button in for at least 10 seconds and then release, this will reset it back to factory defaults, which is fine if you don't have any special configurations set up on it.

If you forgot what it was set to, easiest way is to do factory reset. (push and hold reset button for 30 Sec)
And then setup like a new router all is set back to defaults.
Default password is blank
default ip is (I believe)

How to retrieve my password

If you mean by retrieve, find out what it is, that will required you remembering it as there is no retrieval method available. If there were, it would make the password rather useless, don't you think?
You will need to reset the router to factory defaults using the reset button to clear out the forgotten password. Connect your PC directly to the router using an Ethernet cable. Open a browser. Login using the default IP, user id and password for the router. Assign new password, then save and re-login with new password. Then reconfigure router to get things back to normal as all settings were reset during factory reset process.

Forgot passwork how do i find it

If you still have your username and password to your router page, there is a chance that you will still be able to retrieve your passphrase or password for your home network. To access your router web page and change the settings, get the IP address of your router, usually if you mouseover on the icon on the bottom right corner of your computer, the IP address of your home network shows up. Type in the IP address on the address field of your web browser and it would direct you to your router page. Passphrases are usually under security of your router web page.
Note: You should be connected in your home network to access your router's web page. If you ca't connect to the internet because you can't connect to the home network without your password, try using an ethernet cable just so you can connect to the internet and access your router's web page. Once you have retrieved your passphrase you can disconnect the cable and go wireless. However, if you don't remember your username(usually admin, unless you changed it and password), I suggest yo call your internet service provider for assistance. They will reset your router, so when you login again you will have the option to change the passwords to whatever you like.

We are trying to connect our Nintendo DSI to our router but we cannot remember our password for our wireless router. Is there a way to retrieve our password or reset it for our wireless router

hi vuffer20

unfortunately there is no way to retrieve the password if you don't have a record of it. you can just reset your router to its default factory state. depending on your router model, most routers have a reset button found on the back of the router its sort of like inside a pin hole try looking for the reset button.

please let me know
hope this helps

Hi how can i retrieve username and password


The default username and password are admin and admin. However, if you have changed, and you don't remember the username and password it can't be retrieved.
You need to reset the router. The procedure to reset:
There will be a small hole that takes about a paper clip wide probe. And press for 10 seconds while powered up. This will do a reset your router to factory.
Then username and password will be default admin and admin. Then you can access through on the browser.

Hope this helps.

I forgot either my username of password

Hi There,
The key to resetting this router is to use a pen or paperclip to hold the "Reset" button (it's on the back side where all the connections plug in.) Next to the power cord. What you do is hold this button in, then unplug the router at the same time; and plug it back in. Let the lights go normal; then, do it again 2 more times. This will reset the router back to it's "default" password which will be "admin" there will not be a user name. From this point, you can reset your configuration.

I am sorry, this router requires a full configuration reset to fix the lost password. You cannot retrieve it without going through this process.

Thank You.

I cant get my computers linked up with the 2wire wireless router. the computer recognize the router but the passwords are not accepted

The passwords your computer requires is the router's encryption key ie. the WEP, or WPA or WPA2 key.
This encryption key can be retrieved or changed in the wireless settings of your router.

Router Password forgotten

Pam, there is no way to retrieve just the password. You have to reset/reconfigure the router. Have you done router setups before? If not, I suggest you get someone to help you. If you want to try anyway, then have the printed manual next to you as you step through the sequence. Make sure you connect a PC to the router using an ethernet cable & confirm that the PC connects to the router. Admin is the user id. The factory default password is often "password" or "admin", but check on the manufacturer's site to be sure. Let me know if you have questions about any part of this.

I do not know to to make a password to my router?

Your password can be pretty much anything you want. Using intermingled capital and lower case letters with numbers, stay away from real words and logins, addresses and the like. There are modes on a router that require very specific length passwords too, so make sure you have requirements met.

My n4prouter set up

Connect a computer to the router via Ethernet cable, then you should be able to log into the router to set it up by opening a web browser and putting "" or "" (without the quotes) into the address line. The default username and password is usually "admin" and "admin" or username "admin" with no password. From there you should be able to configure the router and retrieve or change the WEP key.

Let us know how you make out.
