Hi.......Login to your router using http://192.168.1.1 Enter username and password.

Go to Wireless > Wireless security. Your network key should be there, labelled WPA Shared Key or Shared Key (if using WPA encryption).

What you want exactly?password for what? username and password for internet in subscriber? or just WEP for wireless key password?
if you forgot the password for username and password for subscriber....theres an option,i dont know what kind of subscriber do you have in your country...if you forgot the username and passowrd you can ask in the subscriber.
regarding in the WEP password for wireless,it doesnt matter,try this..
type 192.168.1.1 in the internet toolbar
username:admin
password:admin
and you can see the configuration,check the wireless settings for WEP...

SOURCE: The password key

usually by using its IP address.

you will need to use a computer that is already connected to the router (internet)

open up internet explorer (or other browser) and in the address bar try the following:
http://192.168.1.1
http://192.168.0.1
http://192.168.2.1
http://172.16.1.1
http://172.16.0.1
http://172.16.2.1
also, i see someone recommends trying
http://192.168.1.254

it will ask your for a username and password which, unless changed during setup will be the router's default such as
admin/admin
admin/1234
etc

both the router's default IP address and default username and password will be in the instruction manual

SOURCE: password

Since you forgto the password the best way to make this router work fine is to reset it and reconfigure it back, To reset it just press and hold the reset button for 15 seconds while the power is ON, then if you still have the setup CD just run and that should take care of everyting, but if you don't have the setup CD you can manually configure it by accessing the router setup page if you're not familiar on how to do that better call LInksys tech support and let one of their tech walk you through with that process they are open 24/7 this is the number 800-3267114..........

Hope that helps............

SOURCE: Forgot Wireless router password?

If you own the router and have adminstrative access to it, then you can easily change the code, but you'll need to connect to the router either via cable or some other laptop/pc which has the code to connect and change it in the wireless connection tab settings.

If you cannot do that, then the easiest way to do that is to reset router to default, which erases the password and you'll be able to connect to it and set a new one. Reffer to the users manual on how to reset your router to factory settings.

SOURCE: Forgot my security password (network key)I need to

Logon to your router from your computer using your browser and going to http://192.168.1.2/. If it wants a username, the default username is blank and the default password is either blank or "password".


The Belkin management tool will come up. From there, go into your security and look to see if your passphrase is visible. If it is, you're good to go. If not, you can change it on that page save it and close out.
Don't forget to change the passphrase on any wireless devices you are using connected to the Belkin wireless router.

Seems you forgot everything.
1. You could try the default username : admin with password : admin or username : user with password : user
2. if those not working you can reset your ADSL modem to the factory reset by push the "reset to default button" in the back panel, this will bring your modem to the very first time condition. Use the method 1 to login.

I can not log onto my zoom router.....forgot my pass key for network need to add laptop


1. You will have to reset the router to factory default and run the setup wizard using your set up CD and create a new key.
Set up your laptop on the router using either the MAC address or a new password key.

1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP adresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

Ok i want to set up wireless internet on my wii but i forgot my password how do i get my password


You will have to reset your wireless router, to do this look on the bottom of the router for an IP address (example 192.168.0.1) now type that number EXACTLY as it appears into an internet browser address field, where the URL appears (firefox, internet explorer, chrome, safari). Then login to the router with your preset password. Now go to the wireless internet/network setup, each manufacture is different so it may vary a bit, but its basically the same, now go through the wireless internet setup and get a new network key (password you are referring too)

When done, give the router sometime to refresh about a minute or two, then enter the network key into the wii. You now should have internet on the wii

If you have questions or still can't connect there maybe more serious problems, contact me at my profile and I will be sure to get back to you.

Good Luck!

Forgot password to connect to the internet . Cannot connect my laptop to the internet without the password


For that you need to access your router settings
Connect your router to computer with ethernet cable.
Then you can access it with default link
http://192.168.1.1
or
http://192.168.0.1
for belkin routers
http://192.168.15.1
or
http://192.168.2.0
Type user as "admin" and password as "admin" or blank or "password"
Then you can see configuration of router.
Then check wireless security then check WEP or WAP code add new code there if it is in * or# format then save settings and restart router.
So then you can connect internet with that new password.
Let me know if you need further assistance.
Thanks for using FixYa.
