DOH! Sorry to hear that! Unless you can remember it, you'll need to reset your router to the factory defaults, which will unlock your password. Your router should have a tiny button on it you'd typically use a ball point pen to depress, which resets it to factory defaults.
Some routers, like linksys, don't have an actual user name so be sure you're leaving that blank. If it is a linksys, the default username is blank, and the password is admin. You'll want to change that quickly and I recommend writing your password in sharpie under your router if you're the forgetful type.

Tips for a great answer:
Looking for the NETGEAR WNR1000 default password?
You probably have little reason to access your router on a regular basis so don't feel too bad
f you've forgotten the WNR1000 default password.
However, when you're troubleshooting a network problem and need to get in to the device,
the WNR1000 default password suddenly becomes very important.
For most versions of the NETGEAR WNR1000, the default password is password. As with most passwords,
the WNR1000 default password is case sensitive
Be sure to change the default router password on your WNR1000 to something more secure as soon as you're in.
Then use a free password manager so you'll never forget your new WNR1000 password
hope this helps

Before doing a hard reset on the router you may want to try the default username and password. While this is not the same for all routers, this may allow you access to your router.
Username: Admin or Administrator
Password: <Blank>, try just pressing enter or try "admin" as the password as well.
If this does not work and you believe the router is using the default username and passwords try viewing the default settings at routerpasswords.com.
Resetting your router
If the default username and password doesn't work it's likely you or someone whose setup your router has enabled a password that has been forgotten. Thankfully most routers will have a small pinhole button on the back or bottom of the router (like that shown in the picture to the right), pressing this button in and holding on this button for 10-15 seconds will hard reset the router. After this has been done setup the router again and enter a username and password that you can write down.
hope this helps
