SOURCE: Lost password for access to D-Link WBR 2310 wireless router

Hold reset button in the back of the router. If that doesn't fully reset it, unplug it, hold the reset button for about 10seconds and plug it back it with the reset button held in for a further 5-10 seconds, release. Then should be back to factory settings.

How do i cHange ssid password on my computer

Looks like no one is going to jump on this one... The one reason I'd make the change is to block someone who has access to my network.

I don't advise the inexperienced administrator tackle this task either. However, you asked. The way you worded the question leads me to suspect you need some background too. I'll give you my best answer. Hang on!

A "Router" (wired or wireless) is the device that resides (electronically) between your Internet connected devices/computers/printers and the Internet. It was most likely installed by your Internet Service Provider. Computers (printers and other devices) connected to a router wirelessly (WiFi) need to know the name (SSID) and password (WEP WPA-PSK key) of the local wireless network (router). The name and key (password) is set at/on your router when it is first installed and can be changed by logging into the router as an administrator. Be advised once you change it on the router your computer(s) will be disconnected from the router and will be required to supply the new key to reconnect.

You didn't specify who your Internet Service Provider is or the manufacturer and model of your router so I can't be of specific help on exactly how to log into your router to make the change. You didn't specify your system's OS (Apple, PC Windows X, Lenux, etc). If you do not have the owner manual for your router get it before going any further. Get:
·Manufacturer and model info.
·Download the manual from web.
·Find, on your computer where you access the WiFi. On a PC:
A- "Right" click and "Open Network and Sharing Center" the "network Internet access" icon in the System Tray (Extreme lower right of Start Bar [where clock is at]) Usually the icon looks like a monitor. Once the "Network Sharing Center" is up:
B- Left click "See Full Map"
C- Once the map is displayed poise the mouse over the router's icon and it should give you it's address. It is usually 192.168.x.x (x= variable numbers). Make a note of the address. Accessing the router with a browser (such as I.E., Firefox, or Chrome) will require you know the router's administrator account and password. Enter the address where the " address stuff is usually at.
D- Once you're in the router you can change the key. Make sure you enter it accurately. Once you've saved the changes you will be kicked out of the router.
E- Reconnect your computer with the new key by left click on the icon mentioned in "A" above.

NOTE: It is easy to lock yourself out of your own system. If you're not comfortable doing this call in a professional.

Good Luck

I cannot reset my password

Im presuming its your internet connection password ?

Your Internet service provider (ISP) requires a username and password to access service features, including Internet and email.

Your ISP should provide this information when you set up your Internet service.

Typically, once you complete the setup and save the information, your router or modem transmits it behind the scenes when you try to access the Internet.

As a result, the username and password can be easily forgotten because they are not used daily.

If you reset your router or simply forget the password, gaining access to network resources and the Internet becomes a challenge.

Call your ISP's technical support department.

Many ISPs set a default username and password for their routers.

If you didn't change the username and password, your ISP can provide the original information.

Before you hang up, make sure the information is correct by entering it and trying to connect to the Internet.

If the information is incorrect and you still cannot get a connection, keep the information for later reference.

Call your router's manufacturer.

The manufacturer of your router sets a username and password prior to shipping the device to your ISP.

Look at the router for the contact information of the manufacturer.

Call their customer service or technical support department and ask for the default information.

Reset your router.

If you changed your router's username and password and cannot remember what you entered, you may have to reset the router.

Insert the resource CD into your computer's CD drive.

When the software installation program starts, search the screen for "Resources" or "Documentation" or "User Manual."

Click the documentation link and search the table of contents for resetting the router.

When you reset the router, the username and password return to the default set by your ISP or manufacturer.

Enter the information provided by your ISP or manufacturer.

Hope this helps.

I want to connect to my home wifi but do not know the password to connect

the wifi password is usually on the bottom of the router, often the serial number. If not and your router was supplied by your internet provider then you will need to contact them for the password.

you might have put in the wrong password or user id check to make sure you have put these in correctly first make sure the caps lock is on/off what ever applies to your user and password id that you provided to your ISP
make sure your routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.


if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

hope this helps

last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online

hope this helps

How do you set password?

By default you access a linksys router through its web browser at this link:

The router's default user name is admin
The default password is admin

If the default settings have been changed, then the access link and/or password might be different.

If you need to get into the settings to change the password as requested, you will have to know the password used or reset the router back to factory defaults to regain access.

If you decide to reset the router, this is done by using a pen or paperclip and pressing in the rest button located on the back edge (near the power plug) and holding it in for up to 60 seconds. Be fore-warned, that resetting your router WILL WIPE ALL SETTINGS and you will likely lose internet access until the settings are restored as required by your Internet Service Provider.

I am getting ready to switch from dial-up to satellite internet service, I have a Compaq Presario SR1730T and need to know what type of wireless router is best or will any wireless router be compatible????

Usually the internet service provider (even satellite) provides a modem/router to access the internet. This being said to purchase a wireless router must mean that you are going to "broadcast" your satellite internet throughout the house so that others in the house can access the internet.

In that case, no it doesn't really matter what kind of wireless router to buy. Just make sure you connect your satellite modem/router (what they send you) into the wireless router correctly. Also, make sure you put a password on that wireless router so that your neighbors or unknown persons do not gain access to your internet/computer.

D-Link DI-704

Depending on your service provider, you may have to access the router's settings in order for your router to "talk" to your cable modem. Your service provider may require login information or you may have to determine which type of service you are getting. You may have a static ip address from your provider or some other setting you may need to change within the router. Contact your service provider and have them advise you as to what service they are providing i.e. PPoa etc. You can access your router's settings by typing in in the address bar of an internet explorer window. This should open a window prompting for a username and password. Both should be admin. If not then the password could be "password".

Good Luck
