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:


Launch your Internet browser and type http://www.routerlogin.net in or http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1 the address field for your browser. Enter the router's username and password.
The default username is admin, the default password is password.
From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router administration interface, select Set Up > Wireless Settings
Note: On some routers this option will be under BASIC > Wireless.
From the center screen, you find the current wireless security settings 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:


- If you were routed to the NETGEAR website or getting the "Page cannot be displayed" message when trying to login to router, make sure you are connected to the NETGEAR router. Check your wired connection and make sure cable is securely plugged in and LED is on. If wireless adapter is on, make sure you are NOT connected on a different wireless network.


- 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 access information 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!

I lost my password to my netgear, to hook up my second computer?


You don't need a password to hook up a second computer - just plug it in. You only need the password if you want to change the configuration of the router.If that's the case, the default user ID for this model is 'Admin' and the default password is 'password'. If you have a non-default password you will have to reset the router to factory defaults and then login with the default ID/password.
To reset to factory defaults, press and hold the Reset button until the Test LED turns on (about 10 seconds). Release the Default Reset button and wait for the router to reboot

Hey, my name is Wesley Murphy and I'm having trouble with our Netgear g54 wireless router. We just got a lap-top and we're trying to get wireless set up on it. We do have internet, that isn't the problem....


  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 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.

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.


you might have put in the wrong password or user id check to make sure you have put these in correctly first make sure the caps lock is on/off what ever applies to your user and password id that you provided to your ISP
also
make sure your routers settings are correct ie:password user name,firewall settings to allow your internet to connect also test the lead/s whether usb or ethernet you might check your modem first to make sure that you are getting a connection

or

if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

hope this helps

last resort ring your ISP internet sevice provider get them to check your modem for internet access online

hope this helps

Lost my password and cannot connect new netbook


hi
  • If you have forgotten your LinkSys router password, the easiest thing to do is to reset your router to the factory default settings.

    To restore the router configuration to factory defaults, hold the reset button on the unit for 30 seconds.
  • Step 2reset-password-linksys-router-1.2-120x120.jpg jQuery(document).ready(function(){ jQuery('#jsArticleStep2 span.image a:first').attr('href','http://i.ehow.com/images/a02/2p/6m/reset-password-linksys-router-1.2-800X800.jpg'); }); Once your router is hard reset, you will need to login and reconfigure it again.

    To reconfigure your LinkSys, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1/. This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router.
    LinkSys Default Password

    On older LinkSys routers, the default username is blank and the default password is "admin." On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin."

    Once you are past the login screen, you are able to reconfigure the LinkSys router.
    You want to go to the management tab and change the administrator password to something else to keep others from accessing your router.
  • Step 3 After changing the administrator password then you will need to enable WEP or WAP security so your nosy neighbors aren't tapping into your wireless network. I am picking up 4 networks with my pc antenna.

    Wireless connection lost - unable to access properties (error)


    You can solve the problem by reseting the router

    Plese make sure you hard wire the Router to the computer (Using the Ethernet Cable)

    Use the following steps to reset the router using this method:
    1. Open your Web browser and enter the IP address of your router. By default, the address is “192.168.1.1′.
    2. Enter your user ID And password when prompted. Hopefully this has been changed, but if it hasn’t, the default is no ID and “admin” as the password.
    3. At the top of the Web page, click “Administration” and then “Factory Defaults”.
    4. Beside “Restore Factory Defaults”, click “Yes”.
    5. Now click the “Save Settings” button at the bottom of the Web page.
    Your WRT54G wireless router should now be reset to the factory defaults.
    ----
    If you were trying to uncheck the box for Use Windows to configure my wireless network settings you can change it by disabling the "wireless zero configuration"....i guess you are using Windows XP...if it is Windows Vista...you got to disable "WLAN Auto Config"(Not recommended, as vista works best with defualt windows utility i.e. WLAN AutoConfig)

    Go to start...click RUN (Or Simply Press Windows Key and Letter 'R' together on the Keyboard)
    Type in services.msc
    Scroll through the bottom of the page
    Highlight Wireless Zero Configuration and do a right click to select Properties
    Go to Properties and click on Startup Type and change it to disable
    Click on Apply and click OK

    ----
    Just a small advice do check for any kind to Electro-Magnetic interference caused by any devices like - Microwave,Cordless phone,Mobile,Fridge, or electronic device as they may interfere and may not let the Router and Computer to connect
