John,

If you cannot remember the password, then you will have to reset the router. There is a small reset button either on the back or bottom of the router. Using something small (pen, pencil, paperclip, etc), press the
There should be a small You'll need something like a pen or pencil to push it in. Push it, hold it pushed in for about 5 seconds, release. After that, the router should reboot and you can access the router menu by typing 192.168.1.1 in your browser.

The default user name and password depends upon your device type. If you are not sure, look at the data label on the unit. Google [your router name] default user name and password. You should find a result that will provide you with what you need to access the administrator menus.

Unfortunately, when you reset your router you will lose all your programmed information which you will have to reprogram.

How i recover my forgot log in password


Please note that log-in password and wifi password is not the same, to be precise. However, if you are using the default Windows interface to connect to wifi networks, as opposed to a third party software (i.e. one that came with your wifi card), the password can be recovered. The procedure can varies a little bit depending on which OS you are using. Assuming you are running Windows 7:
- right click the network connection icon in the system tray and choose the second (and last) option;
- when the Network and sharing center window opens, in the left hand pane, choose "Manage wireless networks";
- a new window pops up, where you will find a list of saved wireless networks. Right click the one for which you want to recover the password, choose Properties;
- click the "Security" tab, tick the option to show the password, and you can read the password in clear text.

Forgot my wifi password


Many routers have a sticker on their belly with the default password.
Newer routers often have a reset switch to restore default settings.
(needs to be held down for 10-15 seconds). Most router makers host support websites; look up by model#. Good luck!

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 http://192.168.1.1/. 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.
