Forgotten password


The password is the wireless router's encryption key.
When you are requested for a Network Key, you can just enter the Passphrase or WPA or WPA2 key that was used to configure the Encryption key in the wireless router. http://www.fixya.com/support/r5270415-network_password_network_address For information on securing your wireless network, configuring the wireless router and configuring the wireless card in the laptop/computer, please click on this link and follow my instructions :- http://www.fixya.com/support/r3559128-wireless_router_security

Theencryption key secures your data from unauthorized access. The router's password is a Passphrase or the WEP or WPA orWPA2 encryption key. The Passphrase generates the WEP or WPA or WPA2 encryptionkey and this is in the router's wireless settings. To connect to your wireless router, configure the router'swireless settings ie SSID, plus the WPAor WPA2 encryption key and then configure wireless cards in the laptops and orcomputers with these router's wireless settings. Then the laptops and desktopcomputers can communicate with your wireless router.

Lost my netgear connection. i have two new laptops i was trying to hook up. called tech. support w/HP they told me to plug the router into my lap top and i cant use netgear now. can u help


  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.

Forgotten the passphrase


ummm ...how can we know what passphrase you set on your router? .... lol

Find the reset button ...it will no doubt be behind a little hole in the case somewhere that you have to stick a pin in to press it.

This will set the router back to factory defaults with no security set. Then you can enter a new passphrase.

Password/security key


I am going to require more specific information. Is he trying to log in to the web based settings of the router or is he attempting to log in to the wireless network that you have set up at your residence. If he is trying to login to the router, type 192.168.1.1in an open internet explorer window address bar, than the password is typically admin for both username and password. For him to login to your network, if you have set up some sort of security features for your network, he will need the passphrase that was set up when you set up the network. If you have a wired PC you can type 192.168.1.1 and find the passphrase under the heading of "Security" or possibly "Wireless Security" write down the passphrase so that he can enter the passphrase into his laptop when prompted by his connection tool.

Good Luck

You need to go into your router settings via a web browser, possibly http://192.168.0.1 or http://192.168.1.1 your manual will confirm which address is correct.
If you have forgotten your passphrase you will need to set another one and then change all the computers which connect to it so they all have the same passphrase.
