Should be a pin hole or small button on the back typically labeled reset. Hold this or 10-15 seconds and it will reset back to default settings.

SOURCE: setting passwords on dell truemobile wireless router

Hello, The default address for the dell truemobile 1184 is 192.168.2.1 If you have changed it and forgot, unplug the router (elec) for 5 seconds. This will reset it to default. The default SSID is "wireless". If a user ID and/or password is asked for enter "admin". Here you can change settings, enable broadcast, change SSID, enable WEP or WPA. Hope this helps.

SOURCE: Forgoten my password

Physically connecting it to the router will allow internet access, but if you're trying to connect wirelessly and don't know the security key you can try logging onto the web interface from the connected computer and reset the key.

Hope this helps.

SOURCE: ZyXEL P-660HW-D3 password change

There should be a tiny recessed 'button' (usually more of a hole) in the back of your router. This may be marked 'reset'.

To use this to reset your router, the manual for the Zyxel P660HW router advises that your power LED should be on, but not blinking.

Push the end of an opened out paperclip into the 'reset' button (hole) for 10 seconds, or until the power LED blinks. This restores your defaults. The manual I have advises that your password will be reset to 1234. If you have a manual, please check this.

Good luck ;-)

How to i get forgoten password to unlock router


Hello there,

There is no way to get the forgotten password but to reset it. But by doing this, everything will go into factory defaults.

To do this, you have to check the reset button at the back of the router, Press and hold that button for 10 to 20 seconds. Wait for it power on fully and then access the router page using the default admin and password.

Good luck.

Forgoten password in my lynksys router


If you're talking about the password for the router to access it setup page, the deafult password for it is admin just leave the user name blank, if it doesn't work the next thing that you need to do is to reset the router by pressing the reset button for 10 seconds and the router will be back to it default settings with default password admin..
But if you talking about the wireless security key or WEP/WPA key you can get that by accessing the router setup page and typing 192.168.1.1 on the addresss of the working computer then admin for the password, then if you already have that page just go to the wireless tab then there's a sub tab there that says wireless security that where you can get the wireelss key..
If all else fail better contact Linksys tech support this is the number 800-3267114 at nay time they are open..

Hope that helps......
