You sure can. You just need to resent the router to default settings including username/password, and reconfigure it all over.
Further instruction can be provided if you tell us the model of the router, and the type of Internet Service.

You will need to reset the router. On the back of the router hold down the reset button for 30 seconds release the button and then wait for the power light to stop blinking. If it doesnt stop blinking within 1 minute unplug and wait 30 seconds plug back in and the router will be reset

If you have the documentation on this router you might be able to default the router to its factory settings and access the router with the default login/password.

Lost password


On most routers there is a reset button (red) on the back. Hold that down with a paper clip as you apply power - that should reset your router to default settings - like it came the very first day you took it out of the box. You will have to reconfigure the router if you had before other wise the user name and password should be admin/admin

When i put in default username and password says its not authorized


Try admin in user anme and admin in password.
If that doesn't work then try admin in only password, leave the user name blank.
If that doesn't work then try some different passwords that you use often.
If nothing is working then you will need to reset the router.
Once you reset the router, you will lose all the settings on the router and you will need to reconfigure it.

I am unable to locate the key code for the WRT160N. when I try to go through the ipaddress admin as user and password will not work.


If you have not changed the password previously, leave the user name blank and use the password "admin".

If you have changed the password, you will have to reset the router and reconfigure it.

To reset the router using the reset button, use these steps:
  1. Look for the red reset button at the back of the router.
  2. Press and hold the reset button for approximately 5 seconds.
Thi will set it back to the factory defaults. It will need to be reconfigured.

If you don't remember your password the best thing to do is to reset the router.
1. Turn off your dsl or cable modem. Keep the router plugged in to the wall.
2. Find the reset button on the back of your router.
3. Use a pen to press the reset button.
4. Hold the reset button down for about 30 seconds.
5. The lights will flash on the router.
6. Turn your dsl or cable modem on again.
7. Reconfigure your router. It will be set to the default user name and password. User name should be blank and password is "admin" without the quotes.

Will not let me into router. only have an option for password and nothing works. tried resetting to default and it still doesnt work


are you trying to access the router set up ?
First make sure that your computer will be connected to the router with the ethernet cable.
Now check the IP address and Default gateway on the computer. Default gateway will be the IP address of the router.
When you try to access the router it will always ask you for the password.
Try the default user name = admin and password = admin
or try user name = blank ( do not type anything), password = admin.
if that is not working then the password of the router must be changed.
try some different password that you use most often.
If that doesn't work then you will need to reset the router and reconfigure the router.
once you reset the router , you will loose all the settings on the router.
Reset the router for 30 seconds. unplug the power. plug it back in. wait for 1 minute and try to open the page again.

What is the default password of belkin router


Hi,

The Belkin Router does not come with a factory set password or username. I phoned Belkins's 800 number today and found it out. They told me to reset the router by using a paper clip and holding down the button for ten seconds or so.

You can try password - Admin ( usually works on old models ). Make sure to keep User name Blank.

Hope i helped.

Thanks for using ' Fixya ' and have a nice day!!
