Hi there, the reset button on the back will delete all the info on the router however a short press will not. What you will need to do is hold the button down for a good 20 second.... if this does not work then pull the power lead out and push it back in with the reset button pushed in, again for a good few second. Now to view all setting on the router before hand open your web browser up and in the top address bar type 192.168.1.1 or 192.168.0.1 the access code for your router varies on the make but can usually be found in the manual.when asked for a user-name and password just enter those (usually the user-name is ADMIN & the password is PASSWORD or also ADMIN. anyway you shold then be able to view the log and all settings.... hope this help ....Tony A

I have got a 2nd laptop and cant remenber my password to connect it to my wireless connection


If yuor first laptop is able to connect then try installing SIW on it and click the PASSWORDS link to see if it will retrieve the wireless password off the first laptop.
If not, and you cannot get into the router either, you will need to reset the netgear to factory by depressing the reset button in the back for 10 seconds, which resets the login to 'admin' and the password to 'password' to allow access to the router, and setting the wireless security to NONE - allowing you to change it to something you can remember.

If you are able to get into the router, but simply cannot remember the wireless password, you can reset it to something else without resetting the router through the wireless security menu in the router. You will need to then set both laptops to use the new password.

Get security key for dlink dl514 router I reset my computer. I do not remember security key for router. Can you help. Thanks ...


If you are talking about a wireless PSK (pre-shared key), you can simply login to the router and change it to a new one. If you are talking about the router's login password, it is unrecoverable if you don't remember it. You can reset the router to factory defaults by holding the reset button for about 10 seconds while powering up. Then login to it and set a new password. You will also have to reset wireless parameters, including SSID and PSK.

I am trying to connect a new kindle to my existing wi fi (cisco linksys) but cannot remember the password I entered for my linksys.


I think you meant the access key password for your wireless security and not the password for the router itself (2 separate passwords).
I'll give you both solutions starting with the wireless key password.
1. access the router configuration page by typing http://192.168.1.1 in your browsr. 2. This should pop up a log in window asking for user name & password 3. The default settings for a linksys router say to leave the username blank and type admin for the password. 4. once you're in look for the Wireless tab and click it then click on wireless security 5. your password will be listed there in the shared key box.
Now if its your router access password that you need you'll need to reset the router if you can't remember it and then follow the steps above to create a wireless security password. Here's how you reset the router. Remember that all custom settings you may have set will be erased and the router will go back to original factory configuration settings
1. On the back of the router you'll find a small hole or indentation and it may or may not have the word reset printed by it. 2. Find a paper clip or something of the same size and use it to press the reset button for about 2-3 seconds 3. Router will be reset
Good luck

I have a new laptop and when I go to connect to the connection it is asking me for a network key. How do I find this? Thank you!


The network key is most likely the password if you like for your wireless internet connection. If this is not your connection, you cant obviously get the network key. If it is your wireless connection, then you will need to reset your wireless router and set it up again with a new password that you can remember

I can't remember the security password i created


the password for the wireless internet or the password to access the router? If you can't access the router. There is a pinhole to reset it to factory specs. If you can still access the router but don't remember the security key. then just log into the router and make a new key.
Thank you,
Lee

Then you can access it with default ip
http://192.168.15.1
then type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank "password"
Then go to wireless secirity.

But if you are not able to access router configuration page then you have to reset it.

Let me know if you need further assistamce.
