There is reset button on the modem or access point whichever you are using, press the button for 30 second and then release it. There won't be any password now.

Or you can access the page with the IP address which comes with the modem and has both the username and password by default "admin" and clicking on user settings you will be lead to a page of username and password; you can change the password according to you.

Where to find the password

if you have not changed the default password and user name !
it is listed on the web page on the above link

Go to wireless tab at top of screen and look up WPA Key or WEP key and make a note of what it is on 2.4 GHz frequencies as I think this will be dual band with 5 GHz as well but Ipad will run on 2.4 GHz only as it will be 802.11n as opposed to 802.11AC

Note if you changed the user name password or user name you will have to reset the router back to factory defaults but be aware everything defaults so ISP cable settings reset (would need ISP to tell you what they are and help set them back up)
(wireless settings change so you need ethernet cable directly into router to set up wireless)
Hopefully your still set up on the router on the default user name and password !

Login password reset

if you know your old password, login to router and go to administrtion or maintanane (normally comming administration option) and you can see there is an option to change password.
if yo dont know your password, you need to reset your router manually by pressing reset button on router (check back or sides) by doing this process you need to reconfigure internet connection and wifi settings, so before you done you should keep internet connection details (username and password by internet provider) and wifi settings.

Hope this helpfull.

Model name wbmr-hp-g300h, i have lost the password so it cannot be log in

Did you loose WiFi access password or router password?
If it's WiFi password then you can connect over Ethernet cable, login to the router (default password is blank) and change WiFi password.
If it's router password you will need to reset it to factory defaults and setup everything from scratch.

Here is the manual with the details.

Hi John,

The SSID is either broadcast or sheilded, depending on whether the owner wanted to broadcast it or not. Many people often choose to shield the SSID as another layer of security for their WiFi. The SSID is needed to recieve a prompt for security keys, so without the SSID, you're stuck to look for another WiFi signal.

If the WiFi router is accessible to you - that is; you own it - you can access the router's setup page via any computer that is either 1) physically connect via network cable, or 2) connected via WiFi. You will need to point your browser at the router's setup page - often is used. You will be prompted for a username and password. You didn't provide the model number of your router, but according to this Arris Router manual I found, if it was not changed from the factory default by the user - it will be "admin" and "password" (without the quotes). From here, you would go to the wireless settings to read or change the SSID and security settings.

If the router refuses the admin / password credentials, that means that it has been changed from the factory defaults. It will not be possible to view the router settings, but you can return the router back to the factory settings by locating the reset button on the device itself. With a paper clip or ball point pen, press and hold the reset button for several seconds, then release. This will remove all customizations to the router settings.

Using the manual as a guide, you can edit any of the settings as desired, but you should at least change the login password to something unique and set the WiFi security to WPA with a security key (word) that does not appear in the dictionary. Use WEP security *only* if there is no other type offered, as WEP security can be hack in under a minute or two by computer. As you can see, not broadcasting the SSID provides an additional layer of security. You can broadcast it is you wish.

Finally, record the the IP address, username, password, SSID, security type and key and attach to the underside of the router. Should you forget the info needed to access it in the future, you'll find everything you need on the label.

I hope this helps & good luck!
