    Hi jackr0cksall - I’m not sure if you’ve managed to solve your problem yet? If not - as I understand it, you are trying to log in to your router so you can find an encryption key (eg WEP/WPA key) . So can I ask: did someone else set up this router for you? Or have you just bought it second-hand?

    This router model ships with no encryption key, and the default username and password are as you have entered them, so it’s a puzzle at the moment...

Hi Guest….not sure why this issue is occurring, but this is what I would do:

1. Connect to router via Ethernet cable (not wireless)

2. Try 1234 instead of password

3. Ensure caps lock is off (OK, it’s an old one, but it can happen)

4. If the router came from your ISP, check their website – sometimes they install their own firmware and default password (eg, UK Sky users - try password sky)

5. Reboot your router, then see if it accepts the defaults

6. If you bought the router new, it's fresh out of the box, and you’re setting it up – and the defaults don’t work - contact Netgear

7. If anyone else set up the router, or you bought it second-hand, or you think the password has changed and you don't know the new password- it’s time to consider a hard reset.

This is a last resort, as it will clear all settings and cut off your internet connection, until you set up the router again. A hard reset is only recommended for experienced users (ie if you set up your own router in the first place). However, if this doesn’t restore defaults either, contact Netgear.

Good luck whatever you decide to do.

How do i reset my ps3 internet connection, just changed internet companys and ps3 wont work


Hello
Get the name of your router manufacturer and find out how to log in using a pc and the internet.
Or you can go on your pc and go to start run and type cmd.Then hit enter.

A box will pop up.Type ipconfig then hit enter.The ip address should be listed there.Something like 192.168.1.0
Type that number in your browser and log into your router.Username should be admin and password should be either the word password or admin.Again check with the router manufacturer.

Once you log om to the router make sure upnp is checked off and also get your wma or wep key and enter it into your ps3.
Once done restart ps3 and you should be connected.

I want to change the settings of my Hawking router WR-258. I don't have a user name and password so I pushed the reset button. But the user 'admin' with no password is not correct. What is the default??


When the Login pop-up for the Router
appears, please enter “admin” for the
username to access the configuration screen.
(Note: By default, there is no password. If
you cannot get in, please reset the router by
pressing the button next to the antenna on the
back of the router and try logging in again.)

Copy pasted from the manual.

I forgot my password to login


Logon with any valid account.
Go to Start > Run...
Type in "cmd" and then press Enter.
You can also right-click the desktop, create new shortcut, then type: cmd
When the Command Prompt window pops up, type in "net user" to identify the account name of the local administrator.
Once you have identified the admin account, type in
net user "admin account name" * and press Enter. do this exactly right including spaces and replace admin account name with the name of the admin account
When prompted, enter a new password for the admin account and hit Enter. You will not see the characters being typed.
Confirm your password by entering it again and hit Enter.
Type in "exit".
logoff and try the given password
