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.


cheers

Trying to connect new i pod touch to internet and i have forgot the password for the Belkin wireless router. how can i get round this?


WIRELESS SECURITY ISSUES

Step 1 : Connect Router - Computer ( Wired)

Step 2 : Open Router Setup by typing http://192.168.2.1 on the address bar of internet explorer

Step 3 : On the Left under wireless Click Security

Step 4 : If it asking for a password leave that blank and click submit

Step 5 : On this Page you can find the WPA Key ( If it is a bunch of dots then Uncheck "OBSCURE PSK " )

If the Security Mode is WEP then the Key one will be your password

The WPA encryption key (password) configured in the Netgear router's wireless settings. Go to your router's wireless settings to get this key and use this key to configure the laptop's wireless card.

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.

You need to go into the wireless router settings, if you cannot see the encryption setting the you need to create a new encryption key and the configure the laptop's wireless card with the new encryption key so it can connect to the wireless router and Internet.

You may have forgot your network key (encryption key) but do you have your password for your router? if so you can use a wired connection to login and create a new encryption key. If you cant login to your router you will have to set it back to default and reprogram it

Forgot password


To ilysurita, cj_mom, top_shutta…
First can I clarify what is meant by a ‘lost password’ …. The original poster here is asking about the password needed to login to the router configuration pages.

If you know the password to login to the router configuration pages, you can still get access to the network key (also known as passphrase, WPA or WEP key, PSK, pre-shared key) – which is the key Windows asks for to connect a new computer to the network. It will be found under a heading like ‘Wireless Security’ or ‘Wireless Settings’ within the router configuration pages. For this model, you can find the router configuration pages by typing www.routerlogin.net (or .com) into a web browser, or http://192.168.0.1

If you don’t know the username/password to login to your router, try using the defaults – for this model, they are admin and password.

However, if the router login username/password has been forgotten, the only way to regain access to the router configuration settings is to reset the router, as described in my posting above. I don’t know of any shortcuts to this one. :(

If you have to resort to this, you might want to wait for whoever set up the router to help with this. This is because resetting the router will remove all your settings – password, network key, ISP connection info – so you will lose your internet connection altogether until it is set up again.

On the other hand, if you’re willing to spend some time and patience, you can have a go yourself.

If you have your original setup CD this may contain a software wizard to walk you through it. If not, you might be able to download a setup wizard from the router manufacturer’s website, along with a quick installation guide (and a manual).

The Netgear site also has very clear troubleshooting and support pages which will help with setup, even if you don’t have any setup software:
http://kbserver.netgear.com/products/wgr614v9.asp

Make sure you use a wired connection. Also, print off all the information you need before you begin, as you will not be able to access the internet while you are setting up the router.
Good luck whatever you decide to do
