Need Username and password to setup

A friend gave me this router cause he never used it. I seem to need a username and password to set it up. It looks as if the username might be "newdsl". Don't know the password. I've tried resetting it to factory defaults but it still needs a username and password. I found an online manual for the same model # but it doesn't operate the way the manual says. Do I need a specific firmware version or something?

How do I reconfigure a used router?

You sure can. You just need to resent the router to default settings including username/password, and reconfigure it all over.
Further instruction can be provided if you tell us the model of the router, and the type of Internet Service.

Need password for wireless roter

If you need the login password for the router's setup page, the default username: admin, password: password.

If you need the wireless key or password, you need to access the router's setup page by typing or in the address field of your browser(IE or Chrome). On the login use the default username and password(admin, password).
After logging in. Look at the main menu on the left, click on Wireless Settings, from there you can check the WEP or you can setup wireless security from there if you haven't done so.
**If by chance you are unable to access the router's login or setup page, you will have to reset the router to factory settings by holding the reset button on the back of the router using a paper clip or a pen for 30 seconds while the router is plugged in to the power outlet. You will then be able to access the router's setup page using the default username and password.

Hope this helps.

Hello where can i know my user name for DSL-2640T ? I NEED IT !! PLEASE CAN U HELP ME


There is 2 Usernames when it comes to Routers.

1st is the USERNAME and Password you use to get into the Router configurations which is the following.
Username: admin
Password: admin
The above username and password is the Factory setting and only the password can be changed by an user. SO if it was not changed the password will still be admin or you can reset the modem to reset the password back to admin.

2nd is the Username and Passsword you get from your Internet Service Provider which usually is the email address and whatever password you gave them to set your internet up

Computer can't find the router

Configure your router first, by doing that you need a ethernet cable (cat 5 will do). Connect your computer to your router using ethernet cable and open internet explorer, type in the ip address of your router and press enter. After that, you will be ask for username and password, just key in your username and password (if you cant remember, reset your router and key in the default username and password of your router). Once your done, go to internet setup and you can configure everything there. Hope it helps you.

Since your ISP provided you a username and password when connecting to a broadband connection, you have to setup the router's "Internet Connection Type" to PPPoE then you need to enter the username and password that you are using to connect to your broadband.

Once you do that, the router will obtain an IP address from your ISP(MTNL) then it will give connections to your computers

Used router, so the wireless is already setup with a newtork password. is there a way to reset the network password or setup? the friend who gave me the router is no longer in the country, and so I cannot...


Most LinkSys Routers do have a master reset. It is a small recessed button normally at the rear of the unit between one of the antennas and the WAN/Internet port. For a full reset, you need to press this for more than 10 seconds. Of course doing a full hard reset reverts the unit back to factory default.

Hope this be of initial help/idea. Pls post back how things turned up or should you need additional information.

Good luck and kind regards.

Thank you for using FixYa.

Downloads locks up - Belkin N1 Wireless Router

I had the same problem. My Belkin N1 Router was constantly dropping the WiFi connection (every few minutes). I tried several solutions I found on different forums:
Change the channel selection from Auto to a specific channel -- I tried all 13 channels, but no improvement.

Update the firmware to the latest (Beta) version -- still no improvement.

Finally I enabled "Protected Mode" and the connection seems fine now. Hope this helps, and good luck!
