Unable to Access GT704WG Router with Laptop

My father-in-law has an Actiontec GT704WG Router. He does not remember his password(s). He is unable to connect to the internet via wireless from his laptop. How do we go about "resetting" the router with a new password so he can access the internet via wireless from his laptop?

Normally there is a small hole for reset to factory default, just put a pin inside...
Other than that, u can also connect using network cable and access the router configuration, inside, u can edit the wireless security keys

All you need to correct is entering in the WEP key for the wireless network- you will connect, but will be unable to browse wirelessly otherwise. The WEP key is found on the bottom of the actiontec- unless you changed it to something else- at which point you would need to log into the modem to find out your WEP key.(192.168.1.1 on a working computer in internet explorer/safari/firefox, un/pw admin, password or admin, admin; wireless settings)

You will need to check the wireless settings of the router
is there any computer connected to the router ?
If yes then you can open the router set up page on that computer.

No wireless connection after powercycle


Sounds to me as if the Actiontec GT704WG has died. If it is still under warranty, get it serviced. If it is not under warranty, You can try to find en electronic friend to take a look at it. If you do not have such a friend, Maybe someone else here can help you. But you might want to consider a new unit.
