If you contact the service provider they will reset the password for you and guide you how to do it. Then once the password is reset you can change it again to one of your own. Contact them outling your problem and they will tell you how to get to the settings to change it. I hope this helps

My kids pressed the logo button on front panel of linksys wireless. I can connect back to internet but lost my security. How to get back?


Hi shelltiki,

Setting up a password for your rotuer make it the wireless connection secure from others. For you to make the wireless connection secure you need to access the router page just open a browser then type http://192.168.1.1. the username is blank and the password is admin. go to the wireless settings page, Select Either WEP, WPA or WPA2 as the security type to make it secure then personalize your Network Key or Passphrase to make it secure. Connect your computer then if prompt to enter a password enter your Network Key.


Rate me if this will help you so that i can help other people.

Thanks for using Fixya.

How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password Symptoms:
  • You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
  • You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
  • You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network

Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.

If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.

To view or reset a wireless network password:

  1. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.
  3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.
    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router:

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

Router password is the password to access the router settings.
SSID is the network name. When you try to connect to the wireless network on your laptop, you will see this network name.
If your network is secured network then it will ask you for the network key or the password. You need to enter the ' security key '.

Connect an Ethernet cable from the network port on your computer to one of the LAN ports on your router.

Start Internet Explorer.
Access the web-server inside the router: http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1
and set a new password for your wireless network.

I lost my password and lost the WGT624 installation CD, how can i get the router to work on a new laptop


If you have lost the password to access the router page then you have to reset the router

Ensure that you have all the details regarding your internet connection before resetting the router

If you reset the router you can run the smart setup wizard and get connected by entering correct information in all the pages of the wizard

If you are looking for the wireless password:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Access your router page ( Open Internet Explorer --> Type 192.168.1.1 and enter it--> Login name(default)-admin, Password(default)-password) --> GO to wireless settings,under Wireless settings you will find the wireless password.

I just got a new hard drive for my laptop and I can not connect to the internet (wireless) now. I do not know, nor recall having, any password. Please help.


Hi...is this tip any help to you? You only need part (1) 'Retrieving a lost Network Key' - this is the key/password Windows asks for when you try to connect wirelessly. (Skip part 2..).

You can pick up a manual from the Buffalo site if you need one. I think the router IP address may be http://192.168.11.1 and default password is blank (ie no password), but you would need to check your manual to be sure.

Please come back to Fixya if this does not help.
