Did you follow the instructions:
from user manual page 31
To hard-reset the D-Link AirPro DWL-5000AP to Factory Default Settings,
please do the following:
• Locate the Reset button on the back of the DWL-5000AP
• Use a paper clip to press the Reset button.
• Hold for about 5 seconds and then release
• After the DWL-5000AP reboots (this may take a few moments) it will be reset to the factory Default settings
by personal experience: it's not easy to reset:

  1. be sure you press the reset button (a click should be heard)
  2. keep pressing longer than 5 seconds
  3. device must be powered.
  4. lights go off and on blinking
  5. you may try several time to be sure you succeed
  6. if successful you connect with Lan cable and log on as admin (no password)

Forgot my wifi password

Many routers have a sticker on their belly with the default password.
Newer routers often have a reset switch to restore default settings.
(needs to be held down for 10-15 seconds). Most router makers host support websites; look up by model#. Good luck!

I forgot my password. how can I change the password to access the wireless connection

if you mean that you forgot the WEP, you can log in to the administration page of the router by connecting directly with an ethernet cable and change it.
If you are talking about the administration page password, you can press the reset button of the router and then you will be able to log in with the default password. See your manual for more details about doing this.

Need password to internet

You can't.

What you can do is reset the entire router. There should be a button on the back you can press in with a paper clip, hold it down for a few seconds, lights should flash.

Your router will then be reset to factory defaults. Without any more information I can not tell you how to find the default user/pass to log in.

Hawking wireless router to reset password

If you press the reset button you only make a reboot.
To reset all the value to the factory setting you have to:
- Power off the device
- Hold the reset button pressed
- While you press the reset button put the power back on

Now your gateway address is again, login is admin and password is not present (leave it blank).
