Basically, you're asking how to break into a locked phone that may or may not belong to you. The passwords are specifically to prevent this from happening.

My Lenovo chrome note book will not accept my password to open

Is the Caps Lock on? Passwords are usually case sensitive, meaning if you type a password that is supposed to be "thisismypassword" but type it as "THISISMYPASSWORD" it will not work.

I also found the following link to reset your chromebook back to factory, but be WARNED. This will DELETE EVERYTHING and put it back to brand new...

How do I find out what my password and username is

If you did not change the default, you can find them from the vendor's support web site.
If you have changed the default password and forget what is was, then only thing is to reset the router to the factory default -- this means you may lose everything you have set. So, make a backup before resetting to factory default.
In some router, the backup is stored as text file, and you may be able to see your user name and password in the backup file.

Forgot username & password for netrouter wgr614v7

How do I log into my router?
To log into a NETGEAR router:
  1. In your Web browser, navigate to the router login page. By default, one or all of the following URLs should work:
    • or
    • or
    Note: You can sometimes find the login URL on a sticker on the bottom or back of the router.

  2. Enter the username (admin) and the password.
    • The default password is password, or for older routers, 1234.
    • If you have already changed the default password, use the password you assigned the router. Passwords are case sensitive.
    • If you have already changed the password and do not remember it, you have to reset the router to factory defaults in order to use the default password. Resetting a router to factory defaults erases all changes you have made to the router's configuration files.

Hope this will be useful for your question.

Good luck. Remember to rate my answer please.

I changed the default password, and I forgot it. How can reset the password, without lost the configuration?

There is no way to recover the password unless you reset it to factory defaults. This would mean losing your current configuration. I would try to guess everything you can possibly think of. If you still can't figure it out you need to reset to factory settings. To reset factory settings there is a button on the back of the router that says reset. Hold this down for 30 seconds and everything should be reset.

I forgot my passwoed

If you lost your password/forgot what you set it to, you will have to factory/hard reset your router back to factory default settings and set everything back up again. Just make sure you keep your password somewhere safe so you don't lose it again.

To hard reset (Factory Reset) your router (The best method), use the following steps:

The following procedure will clear out the NVRAM and set your router back to default values:
  1. With the router powered on, press and hold the reset button on back of unit for 30 seconds
  2. Without releasing the reset button, unplug the unit and hold reset for another 30 seconds
  3. Plug the unit back in STILL holding the reset button a final 30 seconds.
This procedure should be done BEFORE and AFTER every firmware upgrade/downgrade.
Do not use configuration restore if you change firmware builds (different svn build numbers).

The default login for your router's control panel/settings manager is as follows:

Username: Not required /Admin/Administrator (Try all three. One should definitely work)
Password: admin (Case Sensitive)

Also the default access IP of WRT54G is or (Depending on version) so after you hard reset the router and get it booted back up, you should be able to access the router via:

I hope this helps. I know it's probably not the answer you wanted, but unfortunatly you won't be able to retrieve or change your password without having the password or hard resetting your router back to factory defaults and set it back up (Sometimes good to do anyway every once in a while).

Also, just as an extra tip/hint, I'm going to lead you in the direction to turn that $60 router into a $600 router (Theoretically speaking) just by using a custom firmware called DD-WRT which unlocks TONS of options and is faster and much more stable than the factory firmware.

You can find DD-WRT here:

My Dad and I are trying to figure out the username and password for our router's site, other websites say it should be <blank> admin but that does not work.

  1. hope this helps
  2. Log in to your NETGEAR router by browsing to or Enter the username (admin) and password. By default, the password is password or 1234 unless it has already been changed.
  3. From the left-hand navigation menu of the Router Manager, select Set Up > Wireless Settings.

3. From the center screen, select your encryption type from under the Security Options heading.

    • If the wireless network passphrase is visible, review it and use it to log devices onto your network.
    • If it is not visible, you can change your wireless passphrase; however, changing the passphrase will cause you to lose your wireless connection. Connect your computer to the router with an Ethernet cable before entering a new passphrase into the text box and clicking Apply.
If you cannot log into your router:

Unfortunately, there is no way to recover a lost or forgotten password from a router or access point; you will need to reset the device to factory defaults. However, once the device is reset to factory defaults, you can use the default username ("admin") and password (either "password" or "1234" depending on your router) to reconfigure your router settings.

NOTE: Restoring factory defaults on a device will erase any customizations you have made. You will lose any configurations saved to the device!
