'I've forgotten the router password,' is a common problem. But first, which password do you need?
If you want to login to your router, to view or change settings - you need therouter loginpassword.
If you want to connect (say) a new laptop to your wireless internet connection – you need the network key. This is the encryption key used to secure your wireless signal. Windows asks for this key when you try to connect.
Here’s a rough guide to what to do in each case. For detailed instructions, check your manual. If you can't find a manual, follow the tipHow To Find A Router Manual. (NB: You don't have to read the whole manual - just check a few details, as described in the tip).
1) Retrieving a lost network key-so you can connect (say) a new laptop to your wireless network:
i) Login to your router. Do this by enteringhttp://192.168.0.1or whatever is correct for your model, into a web browser. Enter your router username and/or password at the prompt.
If you don’t have these, see Step 2, ‘Retrieving a lost router password’.
ii) In the screen that you see, go to the section headedWireless, Security, or similar. Every router is different, so you may have to hunt around. Key words to look for are Security, Wireless Settings, Encryption, WPA, (or WEP).
Your network key will be here. It might be labelled PSK, pre-shared key, WPA or WEP key, WPA-PSK etc – but that’s the one you need. Now you should be able to connect to your wireless network. Tip:Write the network key on a label, and stick it to your router.
2) Retrieving a lost router username/password-so you can login to your router, to view or change settings:
i) First, see if there is a label on the base of your router, showing the correct username and password.
ii) Otherwise, try the defaults and see if they work. Common defaultusernamesareadmin, or blank (ie type nothing, just leave blank).
Some common defaultpasswordsarepassword,admin,1234,sky(for UK Sky users), or blank (no password). Check your manual for this, or try a Google search. It’s important that you find the correct default password for your router.
iii) Defaults don’t work? You will have to resort to a hard reset.
Beware.If you perform a hard reset, your router will be back at factory defaults. Your router login password will then be the default, BUT you will normally lose all your router settings. If you have a combined modem/router you will also lose your internet connection, until you have set up your router again.
If you are very concerned about this, ask the person who set up your router to help you.
Otherwise, you can do it yourself . Every router and ISP is different, but if you have your ISP login details and your manual (seeHow To Find a Router Manual) - you should be OK.
Your ISP’s website may also have info which will help you - why not take a look. Similarly, your router manufacturer’s website may offer easy install software, and setup tips, if you need them. Print off any online information you need before performing the reset.
iv) To reset - ensure you have a wired (ethernet) connection to your router, and that it is switched on. Find the router reset button, which may be an unmarked pinhole, often on the back of the router. Press and hold down the reset button as long as it takes to reset the router. This is typically 10 seconds or so (check the manual).
v) You can now use your default password to login to the router, and set up your details afresh.
I hope this tip helps you. Losing a password is a pain, and we've all done it. But - armed with your router manual - you will soon be up and running again.

If its a Internet link which u are speaking about, Please connect the LAN to the System with LAN wire and check the speed. the Problem will be due to low connectivity issue. Wireless router will not increase the bandwidth, it can able to provide the same or below the bandwidth which it received from the ISP.
Are you trying to connect wirelessly or vie Ethernet? If wireless, make certain you have the correct security key entered. If wired, try another port. Worst case scenario, hard reset the router by holding in the recessed button on the back of the router for one minute. This will cause all settings to be reverted back to factory default, however would allow you to reconfigure your router.
Ok, so why do you need an access point upstairs and a router downstairs connected wirelessly? If you can't connect with a laptop or a pc, why whould you think you could connect the access point? The purpose of this configuration would have to be with the access point to the router via ethernet. What's the point? If the problem is range, check out http://www.dd-wrt.com/dd-wrtv2/index.php to enhance the capabilities of the WRT54G... and maybe building a parabolic antenna for it as well.
