Re: how to change router default name and password

You can't change the default name...that is always left blank, but you can change the password.

Access the user interface & click on Administration.  It should automatically be in the Management section at this point.

Enter your desired password in the Router Password field.
Re-enter to confirm the password in the next field.

Click on Save Settings.

For more information on working with your router, you can access the User Guide provided by LinkSys:

Don't the user name or password for my motorola SB900 can you help ?

That's depends...First, do you have the password to log into the modem? it seems that the default is admin/motorola. If that hasn't been changed, you could log in and remove the WEP key.

In addition, most modems and routers will reset to factory defaults if you press and hold in the reset button for around 30 seconds with the device turned on. Forgetting the password is a common problem. Don't be worry...Or if these all can not work, you can call or ask directly to the customer service of Most modems and routers will reset to factory defaults if you press and hold in the reset button for around 30 seconds with the device turned on. Forgetting the password is a common problem. Don't worry... or if the above ones all didn't work, you can call or ask the Motorola customer service directly, maybe they know the solutions because they produce it!

Password problems.

Depending on the type of router, you could have various defaults set, if you never changed them.
You can press the reset button somewhere located on the router itself, using a pen/pin/pencil, and then google your brand of router asking what the default password is.
If it is a Linksys, you could google "Linksys default password" or "Linksys default login" for example.

Defaulf password for belkin router F7D2401

If you have never changed the default password, you can find it printed on the label on the bottom of the router.
If you have changed the password before, you will need to reset the router back to factory defaults. There is probably a small button on the back of the router labelled "reset" that you will need to hold down for 10 seconds and release. To push this button, you will likely need the tip of a pen or the end of a paperclip bent into a straight line.
If you still need more assistance, please post the specific model so we can find a user manual for it online. If this solved your problem, please don't forget to rate this

I forget my password

Check for the "reset" button on the back of your router. Push and hold that button for 10 seconds.

I lost my network pin code

Most routers have their default login and password listed on the bottom of the router. If you changed them (something you REALLY should do), then all you need to do is press the reset button located on the back (usually) of the router then type in the default user name and password.

The most common default user name and password is:
User name: admin
Password: admin

Hope this helps!

How do I lock my Dell TruMobile 2300 wireless router to keep the neighbors from getting access to my wireless internet connection

press win key + r
under run type cmd
on the command prompt type ipconfig
not down your defaut gateway.
type it in your web browser, and then enter the correct user name and password for the router.(i u dont know the user name leave it blank or try admin for both user name and password or its combination o call dell for it)
Create a unique password on your router : Once you have logged into your router, the first thing you should do to secure your network is to change the default password* of the router to something more secure.
This will prevent others from accessing the router and you can easily maintain the security settings that you want. You can change the password from the Administration settings on your router’s settings page. The default values are generally admin / password.
Change your Network’s SSID name:
The SSID (or Wireless Network Name) of your Wireless Router is usually pre-defined as "default" or is set as the brand name of the router (e.g., linksys). Although this will not make your network inherently* more secure, changing the SSID name of your network is a good idea as it will make it more obvious for others to know which network they are connecting to.
This setting is usually under the basic wireless settings in your router’s settings page. Once this is set, you will always be sure that you are connecting to the correct Wireless network even if there are multiple wireless networks in your area. Don’t use your name, home address or other personal information in the SSID name.
This is sufficient to secure your router from other to use it.
