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.

Forgotten password for wifi network


Which operating system ??
Your wireless Internet password is the encrypted security pass phrase that was set up when you installed your wireless router.

Your router allows you to access the Internet.
If you have access to more than one wireless network, you may need to remember multiple passwords.

If you happen to forget one password, you have two options: reset your password or locate the current password.

Windows 7 allows you to view the security characters of all your wireless network passwords.
Click the "Wi-Fi" network icon located on the Window's taskbar.


Right-click the name of your network's "SSID" name and select "Properties" from the drop-down menu.


Click the "Security Tab." The network security key is now visible but unreadable.


Click the "Show Characters" check box and this will reveal your wireless password.

or
Reset My WiFi Password

Wireless networking is a common feature in homes and offices.
Wireless routers provide access to a single Internet source, and wireless passwords ensure that only select users can access the network.

If a password is forgotten or lost, the password can be recovered or reset by accessing the router's Web-based settings menu.

Most wireless routers also have a reset button, which is capable of returning the router to its default settings which includes resetting the password.

Connect to your Wi-Fi or attach your computer directly to the router with an Ethernet cable.
Open your Web browser.

Enter the default address of your router.
The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.

Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."
Enter your username and password.

Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.
Locate the wireless security settings. Disable the wireless security.

Reset to Factory Defaults

Locate the reset button on your router.
Typically the reset button is a small indented hole on the back of the device.

Insert a long thin object such as a paperclip and hold down the reset button for 30 seconds to revert the router to its factory default settings.

Open your Web browser.
Enter the default address of your router.

The default address is listed in your user manual or on the product website.
Linksys and 3Com routers typically use "192.168.1.1" while Netgear routers use "192.168.0.1."

Enter your username and password.
Many routers use "admin" for the username and password by default.

Locate the wireless security settings and add security as necessary.

How do i find my wep key or wpa key


Network security key
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. To connect to your wireless router from the computer/laptop,configure the wireless card in your computer/laptop with the router's wirelesssettings ie SSID, plus the WPA or WPA2 encryption key. Then computer/laptopscan communicate with your wireless router.http://www.fixya.com/support/r10267861-network_security_key

I want to change my network password


Hi

Normal 0 false false false MicrosoftInternetExplorer4 /* Style Definitions */ table.MsoNormalTable {mso-style-name:"Table Normal"; mso-tstyle-rowband-size:0; mso-tstyle-colband-size:0; mso-style-noshow:yes; mso-style-parent:""; mso-padding-alt:0in 5.4pt 0in 5.4pt; mso-para-margin:0in; mso-para-margin-bottom:.0001pt; mso-pagination:widow-orphan; font-size:10.0pt; font-family:"Times New Roman"; mso-ansi-language:#0400; mso-fareast-language:#0400; mso-bidi-language:#0400;} Type the router's URL into your web browser. To access and change any settings on your router, you must log into the router's URL. This will allow your computer to communicate with the router and access the router's main page. When accessing the router's URL, use the same computer that was used to install the router. If you do not know the router's URL, look for this information in the router's manual or on the manufacturer's website. After entering the URL into the web browser's address bar, press "Enter" or click the "Go" button on the browser.
Input the router's default username and password. Once you enter the router's URL into your web browser, a dialog box will appear requiring you to input the router's username and password. (Note that this password is not the network password.) Unless you have previously changed the router's username and password, input the default ones. Many browsers have the default username of "admin" and have the password set as "password" or have no password at all. To find out your router's username and password, check the documentation that came with your router or check the manufacturer's website. Click "OK" to proceed to the router's main page.
Access the router's security settings. Depending on your brand of router, there will be tabs or links on the router's main page. One of these will contain the page for changing your security settings. Find and click the link or tab. This page will contain several textboxes, one of which will contain the SSID (name of the network) and two textboxes for changing the network password.
Select an encryption type and change the network password. Most new routers offer WEP (Wired Equivalency Privacy) security or WPA security. To create a password using letters and/or numbers, you must choose the WPA security setting. Change the network password by typing in a new password in the two textboxes. When you are finished, click "OK."
Save your changes and log out. After changing the network password, you must click "Save" or "Apply" to keep the password change. Log out of the router by clicking the "Logout" or "Exit" link on the router's main page. If you leave the main page open for a certain period of time, you may automatically be logged out of the router.

How do I install a wireless router


Connect it to your modem. Locate the IP address for the router. It should either be on the bottom of the router or in your manual

Open your browser and enter that IP address into the address bar. You will also need to locate the default user-name and password, should be with the IP address. Enter that information when prompted.

Locate the wireless settings in your router admin area, enable wireless output, set security settings (remember to write them down) and connect your computer to your wireless network.

I am not getting a signal on my laptop with the netgear box. the model # is wgr614. I am hard wired into my modem now. I couldn't remember my security password so I pushed the reset button on the back. ...


When you press the reset button on your router, you essentially erase all of the settings back to factory defaults. You will have to set up your router as if youre connecting it for the first time. You need the default gateway IP address (this is needed to directly access the router itself), and information based on your internet connection type (cable modem or DSL). If you use a DSL modem, you may need your username and password (this should have been provided for you when you got your service; call your provider's customer service if you dont have it). The setup CD that came with your router can (and most times will) help you with setting up your router. Newer setup CDs do most of the work for you. Follow the CDs instructions and refer to the owners manual for more info.

Just bought a philips wireless router,need to enter a login password,it says to refer to user manual problem is it didnt come with one!


Hi, Often the username and passwords are generic for routers and such until you specify one. I think it is easier to leave it generic unless you think someone may want to getinto your router as it is just another password you have to try and remember.
According to my research Philips ones are just "blank" so you should be able to just press enter. (See this small article about Philips routers and modems.)
http://www.zultrax.com/p2p/help/firewalls/philips.htm

Some ask for both a username and password and others just ask for a password, by default they are blank.

Let me know how you go,
SeaJade
