Forgotten password on DG834GB router

Other than doing a complete factory reset is there any smart way using the WEP encryption keys that would allow me to gain access to the password for my router which I have misplaced/forgotten ?

For info if having problems you need to do a factory reset, just pushing a pin or whatever it is you use to poke the hole at the back of your router is just not good enough, here is the official line quote from netgear.

Full Reset;

Hold down the reset button on the back using a paper clip, for 30 seconds with the power on.

After 30 seconds, keep the reset pressed in but remove the power lead for 10 seconds.

Then plug the power back in and keep the reset down for another 30 seconds.

So in total the reset is down for 1 minute and 10 seconds

Log into the routers web based configuration page by, launching Internet Explorer and in the address bar type

192.168.0.1

username = admin
password = password

I was having problems with the 1.5 firmwire where the router was rebooting it's self 2-5 times a day, logs date and time changing back to default of 12:00 2002 or something near.
So far I have just gone back to 1.4.3 firmware which seems to work fine for a few weeks before requiring a power off and on.

After factory reset, my computer dont recognise my router


Some later model wireless routers have the Password(ie.Encryption key) and the SSID already configured in the wireless router andthis information is printed on a label on the bottom of the router.
These settings can be used to configure the wireless card and wireless adaptersin your computer/laptop.
If these settings do not suit you, then it can be changed to suit yourrequirements.
The encryption key secures your data and wireless connection from unauthorizedaccess.To configure the wireless settings in the router, connect a LAN cablefrom your computer to the wireless router, then open a Browser on your computerand enter the router's configuration IP address, then enter the admin login andpassword and then go to the wireless settings and configure the SSID andEncryption key.
The router's encryption key can be a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA or WPA2key.If you use the Passphrase method select either WEP or WPA or WPA2 togenerate the encryption key. You can enter the WEP or WPA or WPA2 key with 8 to63 ASCII characters or 64 Hex digits.
Most people use Passphrase which is easier to remember eg. I was born inJanuary 1988.
The strongest and latest security is WPA2, the weakest and oldest is WEP. Toconnect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop, configure thewireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wireless settings ieSSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptops cancommunicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

Hello.
- Do you need the wireless password or the router login password?
If you need
wireless password(security key like WEP or WPA) or you would like to setup wireless security for your Netgear router, access the router setup page by typing http://www.routerlogin.net or 192.168.1.1(sometimes it's 192.168.0.1) in the address field of your browser and then press Enter.
Enter
admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).

- This image is the login window to access the router's setup page.

- After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the Wireless Key(For WEP you need Key 1,2,3 or 4 whichever is selected... For WPA you need passphrase) or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.

- This image is the router's setup page and this is where you can configure the router and check some settings like Wireless security or password.

**If by chance you are unable to access the router's login or setup page by using the default username &password(admin, password) and you totally have forgotten it, you need to reset the router to factory or default settings then you have to setup the router again.

**To reset the router to default settings:1. Unplug all the cables attached to it except the power cord.
- Make sure the router is plugged into the power outlet, then hold down the reset button at the back of the router for 30 seconds using a paper clip or a pen. You should see the lights flicker momentarily on the front panel of the router.
2. Once the lights are stable, connect 1 computer or laptop directly to the back of the router(Ethernet/LAN ports usually they are labelled by numbers and have the same color, just pick one). If you pick number 1, check the corresponding light indicator at the front panel of the router, make sure light 1 is also lit up if not choose another port at the back of the router.3. Setup and configure the router again.



~~ Hope this helps ~~

My router's model no is: WRT54G V1.1 Question: I am trying to get into the router's to enable the inscription (between the computer and the router) but have forgotten the user name and password. Is there...


There is a reset button on the back of the router. You need to press and hold it for about 10 seconds. That should reset the router to the factory defaults. To make your router more difficult to hack, consider using WPA2 for authentication and AES for encryption. If your clients don't support this (not all do), then WPA is preferable to WEP. When chosing a PSK (private shared key) or password, use a mix of upper and lower case letters and numbers; avoid using words; if all devices support it (and sadly, some don't), use special characters. A reasonable password would be something like this: g00DP&$$pHraaz.

My pc has locked me out of the internet and i unfortunately didnt save the WEP key, the router is a NetgearWGT624 v3


The WEP encryption key is stored in the wireless setting in the Netgear wireless router.
Connect a LAN cable from the computer to the Netgear router and open IE browser and enter the Netgear configuration IP address (http://192.168.0.1) default login = admin default PW = password (type in the login password if you had changed it).
In the wireless encryption setting note down the encryption key. Use this key to configure the wireless card in the computer.

If you forgotten the PW then you can reset the router back to the factory configuration by using a sharp point and pressing the reset button at the back of the router until the LEDs flash, then release the Reset button.
Then login as previously stated. You can then create a new encryption key. I suggest you use WPA2 or WPA encryption key because it is much stronger than WEP.
I also suggest :-
Change the default password
Change the default SSID
For additional wireless security - enable MAC address filtering (this allows only listed MAC addresses of wireless cards to connect to this router - add the MAC address of your wireless card to the MAC address table in the wireless router).
Don't forget to configure the wireless card in the computer with the router's SSID and encryption key.

Hold down the reset button on the back of the device. This will reset it.
You'll need to plug in a network cable into the pc and the router. Once that is online go to the belkin admin page by opening a web browser and going to this address: http://192.168.1.1
it will ask for a username and password
admin is the username admin is the password
