At the back of your router check the IP address, example - Check your Manual

at the browser (Internet Exporer, Mozilla firefox) enter your IP and press Enter / Address Bar.

Log in. the default Username and Password is : admin

Now you can change settings and password to your router.

I need to change the password for my router

1 Answer

Login password reset

if you know your old password, login to router and go to administrtion or maintanane (normally comming administration option) and you can see there is an option to change password.
if yo dont know your password, you need to reset your router manually by pressing reset button on router (check back or sides) by doing this process you need to reconfigure internet connection and wifi settings, so before you done you should keep internet connection details (username and password by internet provider) and wifi settings.

Hope this helpfull.

using a paper clip press the RESET button in the small hole on the rear of the device.

Can't find my wep key or admin password


If you have forgotten both you will need to restore your router to factory settings and re-add your internet details ***NOTE*** you will most likely have to contact your ISP for your account details so you can add your net details.

To restore there is a small pin hole on the back of the router with reset below it push and hold for 30secs this will revert your router back to original settings and change your login details to username: admin & password: admin. You will now need to run the setup wizard to setup your router and internet details which will allow you to input a new wep key.

Once done you will need to re-connect each device on your network with new details.

Hope it helps.

I have D-link wireless router M# DI-524. I installed a netgear wireless reciever in a P/C downstairs, the computer recognizes the connection to the router and says its a strong signal, but is requiring a...

ok, i had the same problem

the details should be:
username: poweruser
password: password
(yes, the password actually is password, once you connect you can change the password later by typing in the address of the router into a browser, using the details to log on to the router and have a look at the settings)

if the details dont work, google "default login for <router company name and model: for example: Netgear CG123456 (this one doesnt exist, i made up the model number) >"

Router working; couldn't add user name, password

A router has usually two different passwords - one to access the router configuration, another one for the wireless security.
the first one is used when you access your router via a web page, mostly or The username here can not be changed and varies from router to router ( admin and root are most common.) The password can and should be changed from the default, because otherwise everyone who has access to your network can change and therefore "own" the router.

The second password (also called network key or passphrase) is for the wireless access to the router. (Look for something called WEP-key or WPA.) You can change that after you are logged into your router via web page (usually under a "Wireless Security" tab.

This is how specific I can be without knowing which router you are using, but I think it gives you a general overview. If you would like more details, come back here and leave a post with more details about your router and I'm happy to help.

Secutiry for BelkinF5D7230-4 router using Vista

Hi, here's a quick guide for you:

1. Connect to the router via Ethernet cable

2. Login to the router via a web browser, by typing in the address bar

3. Click to login, leaving password blank (unless you have set a password)

4. Go to Wireless > Security. Select Security Mode WPA-PSK.
Enter your network key (password) under ‘Pre-shared key’ – make a note of it – click ‘Apply Changes’. That’s it, your wireless is encrypted.

For better security/more details:

1. Pick up a manual from Belkin UK
2. When you’re in your user interface, change the SSID and router password for a better level of security (see this tip for more details).

Hope this helps, but please come back to Fixya if anything doesn't work, or if you need more info. Good luck
