To restore it to the factory settings press a paperclip into the hole marked "reset" for 5-10 seconds. Do that wile the router is on. Then if you need to set a special password you can connect to it and change the password.

To change the password connect to your router by going to your browser on your computer after connecting to your router. The default address for belkin is usually "192.168.2.1" for login its either "admin" or just left blank. there shouldn't be any password. After you login you can go through the settings and change your wifi name and password. Most routers also have many other security options like only allowing certain computers on that you add their mac addresses. Hope this helped. If you need more help just leave a comment.

SOURCE: lost password into router need reset

Use the reset button near where the AC adapter plugs in. Hold it in for at least ten seconds. This should set it back to factory, allowing you to set another password.

SOURCE: Belkin f5d8236-4 router to an access point and cant change back

On the side of the router there is a small reset key, that will restart it.. if you are talking about reseting the software then you have to get into the routers homepage. Let me know if that is what you are talking about and I'll walk you thru it..but the hard reset should do it..

Hi, Why not contact your room mate and get the password from him? In the meantime, if you are looking for access to the Internet for free, most Council Libraries offer internet access at no charge to card holders.

Resetting the System Password
If you forget your password and still cannot remember it after seeing your hint, click the I still can't remember the password link.
The Reset System Password page opens.
To obtain access to your system:
1. In the System Key field enter the 10-digit system key located on the bottom of your gateway.
2. In the Enter New Password field, enter a new system password. In the Confirm New Password field, reenter the system password.

Setting a System Password
Setting a system password protects your gateway settings from being modified or changed by someone who has not been given permission to do so. After setting a system password, you will be required to enter it whenever you attempt to access a gateway configuration page - for example, if you try to change the gateway's broadband connection settings or upgrade the gateway software. If a password has not been set,
a reminder notice is displayed when you attempt to access pages where settings can be changed.
To set your system password:
• Open a Web browser and access the gateway user interface by entering
http://gateway.2wire.net.
• Click the System tab.
• Click the System Password link in the System area of the Network at a Glance panel to open the Edit
System Password page.
1. In the Settings panel, click the Enable checkbox.
2. In the Enter New Password field, enter your password.
3. In the Confirm New Password field, re-enter your password.
4. Optional: In the Enter Your Hint field, enter a hint.
A hint is a word, phrase, or question that reminds you what the password is. There is an I forgot the password link on the password entry page. When you click this link, it shows you your hint and allows you to enter your password.
5. Click SAVE.
