If you forgot the password, then you will need to do a hard reset and set everything up again, including security. There should be a small recessed button on the back of the router. Push and hold for 30 seconds while the router is plugged in.
To set everything back up is easy for someone who knows how, and don't do it (press the reset button) unless your confident you have the patience to set everything back up.

You should be able to download the CD from the website of the router manufacturer. But you will still need to know the password.

I would also download the manual so you will know how to set the router back up.

I forgot my password to my dell latitude i need to restore it back to factory setttins i already have it took apart


Are you restoring back to Factory Setting simply because you forgot the password? Please tell me NO. If so, that is not what you want to do. Resetting to Factory Settings will cause you to lose all your documents, music, pictures & videos unless you have them backed up somewhere outside of the computer. If all you need is the password removed, try turning off your machine, then turn it on and immediately hit the F8 key repeatedly until you see the SAFE MODE option. Select Safe Mode and let it boot. When the log in screen appears you will see the account for which you forgot the password and the Administrator account. Select the Administrator account (hopefully you didn't password protect it and forgot it also). If you log in successfully with the Administrator account click Start/Control Panel/User Accounts. When you are in the User Accounts select the account for which you forgot the password, then select the option to Remove Password. Now reboot your machine.

How to fully restore factory setting on hp pavilion i bough from cash converters and forgot user password


For most HP computers you will see during boot up F10 or F11 for recovery, press which ever key it states and do a destructive recovery this will restore it to defaults. If it does not have the option for recovery you will need to contact HP and order a set of recovery discs.

I forgot my password for my router its an mn- 500 and i set a password then had bad break up and didnt use the router untill now and now i cant rememner what it was but i was told you can reset it back to...


Yes, you can (and you have to ) reset your router to factory default if you forgot your password.

Here is how to do it:
  1. Use a pointed object to press and hold the Reset button on the back of the base station.
  2. When the Power light on the front begins to blink green and orange, release the Reset button. The Power light turns solid orange. When it it turns solid green, the restoration is complete. This process takes about a minute.
Note that your current settings are erased and the base station is restored to the factory default settings!

Now you should be able to connect to the router.
  1. You can access the base station at http://192.168.2.1
  2. The default password is "admin"
Look at this article and check how to upgrade the firmware to the latest version. (I read about lots of problems with old firmware.)

You should have a manual.If you don't, you can get it here.

If you have any more questions, just come back here and leave a comment - I'm happy to help.

Forgot password to acess< and or its still default setting. could you tell me what the wireless 700 routers default password is


Restore Factory Default Settings When you restore factory default settings to the base station, you clear your Internet connection settings and any special base station configurations that you have established. After the restore is complete, you will need to reconfigure your base station settings or restore these settings from a backup file. You should restore the original factory default settings only under the following circumstances: O You are experiencing serious problems with your base station, and resetting the base station does not fix the problem. O You cannot remember your base station password. In this situation, you must restore the factory default settings by using the Restore button on the base station, and then use the default password admin to log on to the Base Station Management Tool. To restore factory default settings 1. Open the Base Station Management Tool, and then click Management. 2. On the Management menu, click Back Up and Restore Settings. 3. Under Restore factory default settings, click Restore Factory Default Settings. While the original factory default settings are being restored to the base station, the Power light on the base station turns orange. When the light is solid green, the settings have been restored. If you want to open the Base Station Management Tool after the settings have been restored, type admin as the password on the Logon page. Do not attempt to log on to the base station until the settings are restored and the Power light on the base station is solid green. After you restore the factory default settings to the base station, you should navigate to each page of the Base Station Management Tool and reestablish the network settings you want, or restore the base station settings by using a backup file. For information about creating a backup file of your settings, see the following section. Be sure to establish your unique base station password as soon as possible after restoring the factory default settings to prevent unauthorized users from logging on. For more information, see “Change the Base Station Password.” please rate this answer, thanks

Wireless Bridge


do this to change from routing mode to bridging mode, which allows your MN-500 to act as a wireless access point. Important: If you follow the procedures I've listed below instead of the procedures documented in the MN-500 User Guide, you will not lose the ability to administer the MN-500. This will give you the ability to change the SSID, channel, and encryption key if needed without performing a factory reset of the base station and starting from scratch. 1. While logged into the BSMT, click the Local Area Network link and access the Settings page. 2. Change the IP address from the default (192.168.2.1) to another IP in the same range and set the DHCP server to disabled using the list. Click Apply. In the example shown above, I've changed the IP to 192.168.2.252. Wait for all lights to turn green on the base station. 3. Open the BSMT again using the new IP. Use your Web browser and navigate to http://192.168.2.252 and enter your password if prompted. You will not be able to open the BSMT from the Microsoft Broadband Networking Utility (BNU). 4. Click Security, and then click Network Mode. 5. Click Bridging mode, and then click Apply. 6. Disconnect your computer from the MN-500 but do not disconnect the power from the MN-500 because it may take several minutes for the hardware to restart in access point (bridging) mode.
