Hi,
The only solution for u to login in to the router is to reset the router.

1.If you forgot your password, you must reset your router. Unfortunately this process will change all your settings back to the factory defaults.

2.To reset the router, locate the reset button (hole) on the rear panel of the unit. With the router powered on, use a paperclip to hold the button down for 10 seconds. Release the button and the router will go through its reboot process.

3.Wait about 30 seconds to access the router.

4The default IP address is 192.168.1.1. When logging in, type in the default User Name “admin,” and the
default Password “admin” then click on the OK button to access the web-based manager.

Regards,
Ayyasam

How to log in


Hello, I'm not sure which type of wireless router that is but most router to log in have the same user and password for default.
User: admin
PW: admin
But first, you must be connected to the router via Wi-Fi or by LAN cable.
Follow these steps:
1. Make sure that you are connected to the router.
2. Find out what is your gateway, this is the IP address from the router. You can google by your router model or check the instructions, also most router have the IP address in the bottom of the router.
3. Open a web browser and type the router's IP address, click enter.
4. If everything is correct, a new window should be display prompting to input the user name and password, remember to try admin.
If admin doesn't work, then try:
User: root
PW: 1234
Hope this solve your problem. Good day.

I have buffalo WHR-G54S and i cant portforward


Are you by any chance using www.portforward.com ? Because I just checked it and all of the information you gave would appear to match it. If your not the owner of this router, or say your parents or your husband/wife etc. is normally in charge of the router, ask them the username and password.

If this is not the case, I would recommend resetting the router back to factory default by pressing the small round button on your router that says "reset". Afterwards the username and password should be brought back to the default values of username: "root" password : " " .

If this did not solve your problem, please leave a comment and I will assist you further.

I can't remember exactly what my password is.


try this:

open up a web browser then type in one of the following addresses...just the numbers ie no "www." an ".com"

192.168.1.1 (this is probably it)
192.168.2.1
192.168.0.1

once you get to the routers page, just go into admin mode. You will be prompted for a user name(=admin) and a password(="password"). that should allow you to see what you have your password set as. Hope this helps.

If this helps please rate this as a fixya or helpful.
