You can try to hit that "reset" button on the back of the router. You'll probably need a paper clip or something to push that button down. Push it and hold it down. If I remember correctly, with Linksys routers, the lights will flash when you can release that button. It'll wipe all your configs and restore it to the factory default. Which also means, if your provider gives you a static IP, you'll need to enter that info all over again.

I can not log onto my zoom router.....forgot my pass key for network need to add laptop


1. You will have to reset the router to factory default and run the setup wizard using your set up CD and create a new key.
Set up your laptop on the router using either the MAC address or a new password key.

1.Log into router
2. Verify wireless router name( on the computer) >>> ( on/off)
3.Note router name you are connecting to.
4.. Check the laptop do ipconfig /all to see current IP adresses.
5. Set the laptop up in the router by WEP KEY or MAC address.
6.Note router name you are connecting to.
7. Move the laptop about 20ft away and try to log on to the internet.
This is for all routers to set up wirelessly.

I have a new laptop but forgot my password for my linksys WAG200G wireless router so have done a hard reset but now I can't get any laptops to connect.I have a 26 digit code but not sure if need anything...


as i know, if you have done the hard reset linksys will reset to default setting in this case your 26 digit WEP code no longer effect. you should login to admin to set your setting. may be you can read the manual again or see support/WAG200G

I need wep key westell model 327w


Unfortunately, no one could not provide you any WEP key. WEP is a key that you set to your router so that no one could connect to your wireless network. As an owner of the network, you should know what your network key was.

If you forgot your WEP key, you need to reset the router to factory default, configure it and set a new WEP key.

That is the only way. Thank you!

I forgot my password to be able to connect my daughters laptop to netgear as i just had the laptop cleaned up due to a virus


If you can plug the laptop into the router via Ethernet which will bypass the wireless security and then log into the routers web configuration page and find the wep/wpa key.

Hope this helps

Need to find existing WEP ID, do not want to reset my WEP ID


Flip over your ACTIONTEC and you would see there the default wep key. If you've had it personalized before, you have to open the configuration page of your modem and check for the wep key.

To go to the configuration page, open your internet explorer and type in 192.168.1.1 on the address bar. that is the default address for your actiontec. type in your username and password when prompted. the usual default it ADMIN for username and PASSWORD (lowercase) for password. or you could also try ADMIN (uname)-ADMIN(pword).

click on the wireless settings icon and then click on basic security settings. scroll down on the middle of the page and you will see there your wep key.

if you are unable to open the configuration page because you forgot your username and password, you can reset your modem so that it the uname and password will go back to its factory default settings (admin/password). However, if you are using pppoe connection (authentication using username and password to connect to network) you can lose your connection and you would have to configure your router. so be careful not to press the reset button at the back.

what you want exactly?password for what? username and password for internet in subscriber? or just WEP for wireless key password?
if you forgot the password for username and password for subscriber....theres an option,i dont know what kind of subscriber do you have in your country...if you forgot the username and passowrd you can ask in the subscriber.

Connecting issues with wireless mode on WRT54G2


  1. Try to disable WEP in the router and check if the wireless computer will be able to connect to the router and Internet.
  2. Then enable WEP again. If the same problem happens, upgrade the firmware of your router.
  3. Click on the link for the lastest firmware available for your router.

Motorola SGB900 WEP


In order to solve this problem you would have to connect to the router through the ethernet cable and from there you can access the settings where you would be able to see and/or change the WEP key.
