    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 can change user name and password in router D-Link?


Reading this question, I'm thinking that you want to change the SSID, this is the name that shows up when searching for wireless connection. First, you must find out what is your gateway, this is the main IP address. It usually is 192.168.0.1 or 192.168.1.1. Once you have that information, you need to log in the router, to log in, open a browser and type the gateway (Ex. http://192.168.0.1) A new window will pop up asking for a log in information. The most common default log in info are:
Username Password

admin admin
root 1234
admin password

Once you had successfully log in, take a look at what you have in front of you. There must be a tab name Wireless, click it. Look for SSID and change it to what you want to name it. Security should be in the same path, if not, save your work and log in again, but since you already change the SSID, you must search for the wireless connection again, and input the password, log in again.
If security is within wireless, then just head over to password and change it. You can also change the encryption type, I recommend WPA 2 personal. Once everything is all set up with the new SSID and the new password, click Save.
Search for the new SSID or router with your computer and input your new password once found by the computer./ Good luck.

I have the same problem but can not even log in for the 1st time. admin and password do NOT work.

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.

Router doesnt work


According to the manual for your router, you want to enter 192.168.0.1. Try this and you should be able to bring up the log in page to your router.

The username is admin and the password is left blank. When you are able to connect you may want to change this to keep others out.
