If you have forgotten your password, push the reset button on the back of the router. This will reset it to factory defaults.

The factory default user name is "admin" and the password is "password".

You can change the password by logging in, and from the main menu, under the "maintenance" heading, select "set password". You will need to enter the old password once, and the new password twice.

How do I get the password so my ipod touch 4th generation will be able to use my bulkin router?

If it's requiring a password to log onto the network, it would be whatever you chose when you set the router up. If you forgot, let me know and I can help you reset it.

My son forgot the password he typed in for our router, how can I get it? Do I have to reset the router in the back?

Reset is about the only way.. But you'll need to do full setup again of wireless password and any settings needed for connection to service.

The recessed little button in back. Hold it down with a pen tip or paperclip for about ten seconds.

Usually just a reset of the router is all that is needed to reset everything. If you know how to get to the setup for the router you can avoid doing a reset and under wireless security it should list your pass key.

I had my router working fine then messed it up by my son screwing with the security password I have left it unplug and would like to get it going again.. How is this possible when it seems that nothing is...

Hi Megan,

On the back of the router there is a hole, probably marked 'reset'. Press and hold this button for 30 seconds and this should reset the router to factory settings. After doing this, unplug the power from the router and your modem. Plug in the modem first - wait one minute. Now plug in the router and hook everything up. Now you can set a new password on the router to prevent unauthorized access.

Please let me know if this doesn't work and I can help further.

My son got it from a freind but I forgot the password in order to get into the computer.

Every Router I know of no matter the brand will have a reset button on it.
That picture is for a Linksys router. Once you reset it the password will be defaulted.
To find the default password/username simply go to this site.
Find your brand and hit find password.
Hope this helps you :)
You may also need to find the routers default IP to access it once it's reset. If you need that simply go here.

I forgot my password ??

you can find it by going into the administrator/router configuration web page and under the wireless section you may be able to find it!

the config page is usually found by typing in your internet browser then press enter, then when asked to enter user name and password, leave user name blank and password enter "admin"

if you can't access the configuration page because you also set a different password or user name that you can't remember the only option is to reset the unit to defaults pressing for 30 secs a reset button usually found on the back of your router while your router is powered.

some new linksys routers I have encounter may require a pin instead of a password, the pin is found on the bottom of the router, try that too.

I strongly suggest that if you have technical questions that you review the manual for your unit that can be found here on the download section and come back if you have further questions after reading the manual

Trying to find password to my router to hook up another computer to network

if you set your own password and do not remember it the only solution i know of is to reset the router, and therefore the password, to the "factory default" settings:
-before doing so be sure you have any configuration information you may need to reconfigure the router.
-there should be a small recessed button, probably on the back, to perform the reset. usually it must be pushed and held for several seconds.
-often the default password/login info is printed on a label on the bottom of the router, if it is not there then check the manual or search..
-depending on your software you may need to restart your computer (or force it to reset its network interface) after the router has been reset, in order to access the network again.

I need help i forgot my wireless security key. i now have two laptops i need to hook up

Do you know how to access your linksys router? Do you know the password on the linksys router?

If not you will need to reset the linksys to restore the password to it's default and then reconfigure the router from scratch.

If you need help with that please reply with details about your router model information.
