If you reset the router to factory specs it should fix this problem. To reset you can either find the reset button on the back of the router or unplug the router for 30 seconds. Hope this helps & please remember to rate my answer. Thanks.

I dont remember my password i cant acces anything


To connect to your wireless router, it needs the router'swireless settings configured ie SSID WPA or encryption key and also thewireless cards in all the laptops and computers needs to be configured withthese router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktop computers cancommunicate with your wireless router. To accessthe Belkin configuration, connect a LAN cable from the Belkin to the LAN porton your computer. Open a browser and enter the Belkin configuration URL. http://192.168.2.1 The defaultPW = blank (just press Enter) You can nowgo into the wireless settings to obtain the WPA2 encryption key or change it toa new one.

I am trying to helpy parents. They have a netgear wireless router. We know the ID but my mother made an 8-character long password that no one can remember. The router was originally set up on a computer...


Hi,
Welcome to Fixya Support
I am Michelle, and i will be assisting you regarding the issue
Try using a pen or paper clip to press the reset button on the back of the device. Keep the button pressed until the lights in the front of the Netgear router start flashing. The router will reboot after resetting the configurations.
Open a internet explorer browser window and enter 192.168.1.1
the Netgear router configuration console will open and will prompt you to enter username and password
Enter the default username and password. Now that settings have been reset, you can use the Netgear global default username and password listed below:
username: admin
password: 1234 or password
Unplug the router's power cable if these passwords do not work. If you are still unable to login, the router may not have been reset. While the router is unplugged, hold the reset button for 20 seconds before plugging in the power cord. Repeat Steps 2 and 3 to gain access to the router, using the new admin username and password

Have an ipod and dont remember the linksys password


goto a computer that is online.

Open up internet explorer or your favorite browser

type in 192.168.1.1

press enter

if you did not change the user name and password, username should be left empty with nothing in the username portion and the password is "admin"

if you did change the password and forgot the router password then you must hit the reset button on the back of your router to default the router and will need to reset up your wireless security settings.

but, once you get into the linksys administration page goto the wireless security section and you will see your wireless password there.

I need to erase the other people that are on my router w/me and secure my router


Connect an ethernet cable from your PC to the router, open a browser window, enter 192.168.1.1 in the browser address window, press enter, and you should now be in the router setup menu.

If it prompts you for a password you'll need to enter the password. If you don't remember the password press the router reset button and start over. Yes, there is usually an actual reset button, sometimes they are inside a small hole and you "press" the button by pushing a straightened paper clip into the hole.

Shouldn't ask you for a password after the reset but you'll want to be sure and set one then so no one else can make changes.

Change the router passwords (configuration menu and wireless security access) so no one but you has access. That's all you need to do.

401 unauthorised cannot view router setup


this is usually caused by trying to acces the router by entering the password wrong 3 times. just close your browser & try again.
1. you must be directly connected to the router with a cable.
2. if you dont remember the password you must press the reset button on the router & redo all your settings.
3. sometimes the firewall settings on the computer can cause you not to connect. temporarely turn off you firewall & try again.

Wireless Router Reset


Linksys reset
The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router’s password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address http://192.168.1.1. You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password “admin”, in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to “admin” on some of the newer Linksys router models).
If I could be of further assistance, let me know. If this helps or solves the issue, please rate it.
Thanks, Joe

Need to change netgear router rp614 from dsl to cable


Hello

First connect one of the ethernet ports (LAN) to your computer.

In windows to this:

XP: Start -> Run -> write CMD and press ok-> Black window pops up-> write IPCONFIG and press Enter. -> Look for Local ethernet connection and write down the ip adress outside default gateway (f.ex 192.168.0.10 or 10.0.0.1).
Vista: click windowsmenu icon-> write CMD in search field and press enter -> Black window pops up-> write IPCONFIG and press Enter. -> Look for Local ethernet connection and write down the ip adress outside default gateway (f.ex 192.168.0.10 or 10.0.0.1).

Open a webbrowser and clear det adress field, enter the adress (with the dots and no www.) you wrote down from default gateway and press enter.
If you get promted for a username and password the default is: username: admin password: password (you can find it on the side of the netgaer box under deafult accsess.
If you cant get in try to do a "hard reset" (push the reset button for 30 sec with a pen).

You are now in the web user interface for you netgear.

On your lefthand side, you should have a blue menu, click on the first option on the top and run the setup wizard, dont change anything (dont choose that your connection needs a password to connect) just use the default settings. Remember to press save on the botom.

You should now be ready to use your netgear router.

If this guide didnt fix your problem, i need more details to help you.
Check with your new service provider if they require a username and password to connect (PPPoE).
