If you can get to the Router Admin page by putting the "Gateway" IP address in your browser you will find the Guest Access password box right below the main encryption box in the Wifi Security menu.

To get the IP address for the gateway type in "ipconfig" at a command prompt on a windows pc. To get to the command prompt on a windows PC type "cmd" in the run box or in the search for a program box from the start menu. Click on the cmd whenever you find it.

If everything seems to be completely scrambled you can use the "reset" instructions described above. You will need to go completely through your "quick install" instructions if you do use the "reset" above. Make sure you if you are a phone customer rather than a cable customer that you have the userid signon and the password. If you don't have those you can't get back online.

Hi Norman,
For guest access:
You can allow guests to use your Internet connection without joining your personal network.
The network name and password for the guest network is located on the network information card found under the foot of your Router
A person using your guest network will be able to join without a password, but will be shown a login page when they attempt to surf the Web..
They will need to enter the guest password into this page to continue.
Hope this helps!
Please Rate if it did!

Check on the back for a small hole you can stick a straightened paper clip into.
The "Reset" button is used in rare cases when the Router may function improperly. Resetting the Router will restore the Router's normal operation while maintaining the programmed settings. You can also restore the factory default settings by using the "Reset" button. Use the restore option in instances where you may have forgotten your custom password.
a. Resetting the Router Push and release the "Reset" button. The lights on the Router will momentarily flash. The reset is complete in 60 seconds.
b. Restoring the factory defaults Press and hold the "Reset" button for at least 10 seconds, then release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily flash. The restore is complete in 60 seconds.

SOURCE: forgot wireless access code how do you change it ?

You will have to reset your router to factory default settings. There is usually a reset button behind the router.

Restoring the Factory Defaults
Press and hold the Reset button for at least ten seconds
then release it. The lights on the Router will momentarily
flash. The Power/Ready light will begin to blink. When the
Power/Ready light becomes solid again, the restore
is complete.

Then the router will have default user admin and password will be blanked

3. Keep the reset button depressed and, at the same time, plug the power supply back in
4. Keep the reset button depressed for another 10 seconds

Good luck

SOURCE: I cannot access the router settings.The light

Flashing green means its trying to contact the modem. So, there is some problem with modem-router connection or with the modem.

Disconnect the modem from the router and connect the modem alonely to the desktop and check.

If you are unable to go online, restart the modem/reset the modem.

After that, connect the modem to the router, then reset the router (In the back side, U can see a reset button. Hold the button upto 10-15 seconds, lights will go off and it will vary). then, power off the router and after 10 sec, make it on.

Then it will go to default settings. Now, try to go online.

If not, Call Belkin 1800 2BELKIN. Life time Free phone support 24*7.

Setting up guest wifi

Go through the steps just like you did to set up your router initially. The prompt along the on screen set up will ask you what type of setting and access you would like for this. It doesn't have to be "guest". You can name it anything you like and limit access on that as well as password protected so only your guests can use it and not your neighbors.

How do I find the cisco Guest access password this is the first time I have been asked for it.

Hi Nancy. This prompt appears when you are trying to log into a wireless network under the 'Guest' login on the wireless router. If it is your own network, you can set up a username-password pair through your router management. If it is someone else's router, you will need to obtain a username-password from the administrator to obtain access to the network.

How do Setup a password for my router already have one password need to set a password for guest

You need to use your browser to log in to your router. Locate the guest account in the menu and set a new password. If you'd like, many routers allow you to disable guest accounts entirely. If you need specific step-by-step instructions, I need to know what brand and model router you are using, what OS your computer has, and what browser you use for accessing the internet.

Forgotten pre-shared key for D-Link Router

I thought there was a check box in this model that enabled you to see the password/key. If not then you may have to do a factory reset and set-up everything from scratch. Cannot remember if this model has a guest mode, but if the device you are connecting is not critical, TV, BlueRay, Roku etc, then enable the guest mode without a password to connect. These devices will NOT connect to other things on the network, but if they only need internet access it may be OK.

I need the code to connect my laptop to my wireless router to use the internet

You need to configure the "wireless" settings within the router:
* set an SSID
* set an encryption-level --- use 'WAP'
* set a password.

Then, use those settings on the wireless-adapter on your laptop, to connect to the router.

How do I get my password so a guest can use my wi fi

assuming this is your personal home wi-fi : find your wiless router manual... access from your browser by entering the ip address (refer to your manual)... go to your wireless security setting - some times you all you will see are just series of dots - (some do have a check box below that will let you see actual characters) if not just set up a new password. If you set up a new password you would have to update all computers that connects to your wi-fi w. new password.
