LOST ROUTER LOGIN PASSWORD
If you have forgotten your personal router login password there is no way to recover it. You will have to reset the router. This means all the settings on the router will be reset to factory defaults. It also means that all your connected devices will need to be connected again with the new security information (WEP, WAP, etc,) . You will need the default admin login name and the default admin password. This can be found in the user guide that came with the router. This can usually be found online at the router manufacturers site.
There is usually a button or a switch hidden in a pinhole opening on the back of the router. Pressing and holding the switch for 10 seconds or so will cause the reset and usually the LEDs will flash and blink for several seconds as the router firmware resets and clears out the old information.
If you are trying to get into someone else's router illegally there is no way to find out their login password.
For future reference, write the password down, or a hint at what the password is, on a piece of tape and secure it on the bottom of the router. I use my cell phone memo function to store all my passwords.

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:
    • http://www.routerlogin.net or http://www.routerlogin.com
    • http://192.168.1.1 or http://192.168.0.1
    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.
This information is extracted from www.netgear.com, for learning purpose only.

Hope this will be useful for your question.

Good luck. Remember to rate my answer please.

How do I reset LinkSys Router Default Password?


When you forget your Linksys router password, you will need to reset it back to the factory defaults. You can restore the router configuration to back to the factory by following the steps outlined below:

1. Hold in the reset button of the router for 30 seconds. 2. Unplug your power cord for 30 seconds 3. Plug back your power cord4. Wait for a few seconds then release the reset button.
NOTE:¨ When holding in the reset button, make sure that you do not release it until you are sure that it has been compressed for at least 30 seconds or more.

¨ This procedure resets the router back to all its factory default settings thus apart from affecting your username and password, it will also affect your configuration and IP addressing.

Once this is complete, you can now login and reconfigure your password. To do this:

1. Connect a PC to one of the Linksys router Ethernet ports

2. Open your web browser and go to the URL http://192.168.1.1. This will take you to a web page with a popup box which asks you to enter a username and password to login required to login to your router

3. On older LinkSys routers, the username is set to blank and the password is set to "admin" (without the quotes). On newer Linksys routers, both the default username and the default password are set to "admin".

4. Click on login. You have logged in to the Administrator account and are now able to access and change a number of configuration options for your router.

5. Click on management tab then change your administrator password to any password that you like. Remember to choose a strong password that others cannot guess but that will be easy enough for you to remember.

6. You can also choose to reconfigure other aspects of you Linksys router at this point.

Need password to internet


You can't.

What you can do is reset the entire router. There should be a button on the back you can press in with a paper clip, hold it down for a few seconds, lights should flash.

Your router will then be reset to factory defaults. Without any more information I can not tell you how to find the default user/pass to log in.

How to change password for d link router if i have forgotten my password


Hello there..

If you forgot your password you need to reset the router, just remember that you need to reconfigure the router from scratch if you do reset it.

Here is how you reset the router:

. Turn off the router 2. Locate the Reset button on the back of the router.
3. Use a paper clip to press the Reset button and power on.
4. Hold for about 5 seconds (don’t hold too long) and then release. (Or, release when M1 and M2 flash at the same time.)
5. After you have completed the above steps, the router will be reset to the factory default settings


Now you just need to log on to the router using the default admin password and username(Usually username:Admin Pasword:Admin ) and reconfigure the router and set new password.


Kind regards
Andrea

I cant log in with my username and password


Reset the router to factory defaults by putting in a push-in in the small hold at the back of the router. You should then be able to login using the default password. Default password should be in the user manual.

Ihave a linksys wrt54gl v 1.1 wireless modem, reinstalled xp and now cant remember my password. Is there anyway I can bypass or reset the pasword.


In the back of the unit is a button labeled RST. It makes router go back to factory settings. If you haven't the manual, don't attempt to do so, because it still haves the original password when resetted.

Linksy router lem....!!!!


Try the following to reset it to the factory defaults.

Warning! This will reset all the settings in the router! Including any custom setup stuff, like WPA key, etc.

Turn the router on. Press and hold the reset button on it for 30 seconds. The reset button is usually a small recessed button on the back of the unit depending on which model you have.

Now you should be able to connect to it through your browser at http://192.168.1.1. Depending on your model, the username is blank and the password is "admin" (without the quotes) OR both username & password are "admin". Note that you will need to connect your computer to the router with a network cable to go through the setup process - you can't do it wirelessly.
