Password not working

I have typed in the default gateway address to get to the config page and any password I try doesn't work. I've tried the username of admin and password admin and also password as password, nothing works. Is there a way to bypass the password to get to the config page?

There is no way to bypass this... all you can do is reset the router.

On the back you will find a hole with a reset button inside. You have to press it with a writing pen.

Press the button with the pen while unpluging and reattaching the power cable to the router. Continue holding down the reset button for 10-15 seconds after the power is re-applied.

Then you should be able to access the router by and using the user = admin and password = admin.

I don't remember my network key,so I cannot use it

Try to connect you computer with an Ethernet cord. If the Internet is working check the default gateway of the computer by typing "ipconfig" on the command prompt. Type the default gateway on the address bar. There you will see the login page for your wireless router. Check the default username and password from the router's manual and enter it. If it accept the user name and password, look for the wireless settings, password should be seen there. If not create a new one. If default user name and password doesn't work reset the router. There should be a reset button or pinhole on the back of the router. Press and hold it for 10seconds. Try again typing the default gateway on the address bar then re enter the default user name and password. If it work your router now do not have a network key (unsecured). You can create a new network key on the router's configuration page.

I am trying to secure my router with password but

would you mind providing make and model of router? You can connect to the router with ethernet cable and look at your Gateway IP address. Take that ip address and type into your browser as http://XX.XX.XX.XX Where the XX's are your gateway ip address. this will get you to your routers config page. From there you can try the default password for the router then go on the actually configuration. But its hard to direct further without know specific make and model.
