Try admin for the user name and no password, or no user name and admin for the password. also, try a hard reset by holding reset button on back for 30 seconds w/ router disconnected. This will wipe any settings you had saved. But it will set everything back to default. You could also download the manual for that model of router to find out the default username/password. Good Luck.

SOURCE: i forgot the password of

Can you not get on the wifi itself or you can't login to the router? If you can't get onto the wireless, then you need to get into the router config page. Plug in an ethernet cable from the router to your laptop and that will allow you to connect to the network so you can login. Open a browser and type in the address bar "" (this is the default address for the router unless you changed it). Then you need to login.....
Most D-Link routers have a default username of "admin" and a default password of either "admin" or simply blank (no password). Try those and see if you can get in.
If you can't login with those credentials you can reset it. There should be a reset button on the back of it. You would most likely need a paperclip or pencil tip (something small) to stick in there to press it. Hold down the reset button for about 30 seconds and that will reset all the setting back to factory defaults as though you had just bought it. Then the above passwords should work. (note- this would wipe out ALL settings so you would need to setup your wifi and everything else again).
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

SOURCE: I forgot my password for my wireless router, and can not sign my wifes new phone up on our wifi

When your phone asks for the password, out in the Encryption key. If you didn't print this out when you installed the router, insert the CD and install the Easylink Advisor, which wil then show up down in your taskbar in the bottom right corner of your screen. Open it, click on the Support tab, and it will show all your settings. For the password requested on your smartphone, enter the encryption key from your settings in EasyLink Advisor. That did it for me. Good luck!

Forgot pass word

Press the little recessed Reset button in the rear. You press it with the tip of a pen. Have you checked for a label under the unit?

Once resetting, you will have to set it up again.

Wifi password

If you are using a router ( and of course have physical access to your router) reinitialize (reset it to factory default) and reconfigure your network. If password was provided by some Internet provider, contact your provider.

Forgot password for wifi

You can always use the reset in the back, but that will clear all custom settings. Hold it in till it cycles. Defaults to web admin can be looked up at Port Forward dot com.

I want to connect to my home wifi but do not know the password to connect

the wifi password is usually on the bottom of the router, often the serial number. If not and your router was supplied by your internet provider then you will need to contact them for the password.

Forgot password to WiFi How do I find out what it

To find the password/passphrase on the Linksys router, connect a PC to one of it's Ethernet ports, load a web browser, and go to the URL This will take you to a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login to your router. On older models the username is left blank and the password is “admin”. On newer models, both the username and password is “admin”.

Once you get in to the router management tool, look for the security portion. There you will find the password or passphrase you are using for your WEP or WPA security encryption.
