Resetting the router will allow you to set it up to your preferences.

Simply locate the Reset button found on the back of the device and hold it in for a period of 5-10 seconds until you see all the lights on the device light up.


This resets all the settings to default, upon which your wireless will be open, and you can set it up from there. I highly suggest that you configure your security settings after this reset.

Open routers are open cells for their owners, and innocent people don't belong in jail.


Let us know.
Good luck.

Ok....
it seems that you are tring to connect to someone elses secured network which means you will not be able to connect to this wireless network as it has security enabled in it and the passphrase is know to the person who has setup this network....what i can suggest is that you can try connecting to unsecured networks if it is available...if there is no networks unsecured networks available then you will not be able to connect to the internet wirelessly..

Need to change wifi passphrase to all numbers or all letters smart tv doesn't recognize letters and numbers


you can auth your tv to use wi-fi without password via mac from wify setup when detected.

disable passphrase from router and connect tv, auth tv and pus back passphrase and it should work, if not, change security type of router to another, WPA/WPA2 where it would let you enter any password you like.

I lost my net gear n150 cd and i want to change my password..


How to View or Change Your Wireless Network Password Symptoms:
  • You have lost or forgotten the password to your wireless network
  • You have lost or forgotten the password for the router, access point or other network device
  • You left the default password or used a weak password and someone has hijacked your network

Depending on the router, you can either view or reset the wireless network password (also referred to as the passphrase or security key) if you can log into the router. Some routers mask the wireless network password, so while you cannot recover it, you can enter and save a new password.

If you cannot log into your router because you have forgotten the router password or your network has been hijacked, please refer to "Lost or forgotten password for router or other device" below.

To view or reset a wireless network password:

  1. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com. Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  2. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.
  3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.
    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router:

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.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!

Forgot my password to my belkin n1 wireless router


You can always reset the router to factory default settings. Keep in mind you WILL LOSE any changes you have made (whether it be wireless configurations, port forwarding settings, etc). But, if that doesn't matter to you, resetting it will allow you to start from scratch. You must know what your Internet settings should be: whether dynamic IP, static IP, or PPPoE so you can get back online.

However, if your question is "What is the wireless networking (WPA) passphrase?" you can change that if you log into your router and adjust the wireless settings. You would need to do this from a machine that is already has connectivity or hard wire the laptop to the router. To do this type 192.168.2.1 into the address bar in Internet Explorer of a connected machine. If you have never adjusted this, the password should be blank and you can just proceed.

Navigate over to wireless settings and the security setting and change the passphrase to whatever you want. If there were any wireless computers working on the network previously then you will need to update the passphrase on them to reconnect.

To actually reset the router, there should be a small pinhole button labeled "reset" which you will need to depress for at least 30 seconds, probably more.

The manuals and troubleshooting guides over at http://www.belkin.com/support/ will probably be very helpful.

I need security key/passphrase


Log into the management council on the router. From there, you can find or replace your passphrase.

open your web browser; and type in this address, be sure to use the dots: 192.168.0.1

You will be guided to a login screen. the username is ADMIN (not case sensitive).

The password is blank...that is, do not type anything in the password box. Hit enter.

Good luck

Security Keys or Passphrase


  1. Now we will secure you wireless connection to prevent others from connecting. Under the Home tab, click the Wireless option from the left.
  2. Beside the SSID option, enter the name for your wireless network connection.
  3. Beside Security, select WPA. If you can’t connect using WPA, then select WEP. Using WPA will provide a much more secure connection that using WEP. For more information about WEP and WPA please read Wireless Security: WEP and WPA.
  4. Click AES beside the Cypher Type.
  5. Make sure PSK is selected beside PSK/EAP.
  6. Now you must get very creative. Specify a long Passphrase with a mix of upper and lower case letters, numbers and punctuation. Once again, please read Creating Secure Passwords for tips on how to do this. In this case the longer the better. Make sure you write down this key somewhere, either on a piece of paper or in a text document on your computer. You will need this information when you connect to your wireless network.
  7. Enter your passphrase next to Passphrase and again beside Confirmed Passphrase.
  8. Click Apply to save your security settings.
  9. Now you are all done securing your wireless router and network. All you need to do is connect to your network, and enter your Passphrase exactly as you specified it. I won’t go into detail on how to connect to your wireless network, as I will save that for another post.
