Question about NetGear DG834 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.
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
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 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
**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 ~~
