The reset procedure of a router, is most of the time printed on the underside of the router. Most of the time you have to push a button for a certain time, or unplug it form the power for at least one minute or so. Page 120 of the manual says:

How do I reset my password to factory settings? - 25666674-430tztikrat04csse0ovhla5-5-0.png The complete manual you find here:

On page 120 you also see what settings are in the router. But perhaps you need it, to setup everything from scratch.

For got password would like to reset username


Every router I have ever seen allows you to reset the configuration to factory default - but not allow you to retrieve a forgotten password and maintain your settings at the same time. This is often referred to a "factory" or "hard" reset.

When you initiate a factory / hard reset, typically by pressing & holding a button on the router - or behind an opening in the router case - all the changes you've made to it will be returned to the factory default. Wifi becomes "open" with no password (on most devices), the login username / password also go back to default settings (common ones are: admin / admin, admin / password, <blank> / admin, <blank / password, etc.). Consult your router's set up guide or online documentation to learn what the factory / hard reset procedure and the default settings.

Once you gain access to the setup pages of the router, configure it as best as you can remember, and lock it down with good security settings. At minimum - this should include changing the router's username / password, the WiFi's SSID and do not broadcast it, add WPA or WPA2 encryption and secure it with a security key (use a mix of numbers, letters, symbols etc.).

I suggest recording the settings on paper and then tape it to the bottom of the router. There it will remain out of sight - but ready when you need it.

Good luck!

Need password to my netgear router n 300


what is the model #?
Most netgear routers default to a username of "admin" and password is either " admin ", "password" or it is just blank. Those are the defaults unless someone changed it.
If you cant get in you can hold down the reset button on the back for 30 seconds (while it is plugged into power) and that will set it back to factory default settings then one of the above should work.
If this was a help please give me 4 thumbs up as I am trying to build up my rep on this site!

I forgot my Password for NETGear WGT624 Please help


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.

or

if there is a small hole in the front or back of the router push a hair pin in to reset to factory settings

hope this helps

Does a 10 second reset on a Netgear router reset everything. Even the password on the network and so on?


it should only set the password on the router

Do not know know password for wireless internet


Hi
Go here and download the manual http://static.highspeedbackbone.net/pdf/Netgear-WNR2000-manual.pdf
You will need to reset the router or change the password in the router 1. To change the password, goto Internet Explorer 2. In the address bar type 192.168.1.1 3. Press enter key 4. YOu should see a box with username and password fields. 5. username is admin 6.password is password 7. These are not the wireless passwords but the access password to get in the router. 8. Once in the router interface on Internet Explorer; goto the wireless sections and change the password there.
To reset the router WARNING: This will reset all the settings to what it was like when it came fresh out of the box. You may need to know some other settings. Restoring the Default Password and Configuration Settings You can restore the factory default configuration settings that reset the router's user name to admin, the password to password, and the IP address to 192.168.1.1. To restore the factory default configuration settings: 1. Use a sharp object such as a pen or a paper clip to press and hold the restore factory settings button, located on the rear panel of the router, for about 5 seconds, until the Power light begins to blink (see "Back Panel" on page 5). 2. Release the restore factory settings button, and wait for the router to restart, and for the Power light to stop blinking and become solid green. The factory default settings will be restored so that you can access the router from your Web browser using the factory defaults.
Failing this, please refer to the manual, page 29 onwards
All the best now

I have forgot my password for my lap top is there a way to reboot from factory settings?


Forgotten or lost Password -> "Methods to get into your PC/Laptop"

Factory settings -> Means the settings set by the OEM vendors when your first receive your PC/Laptop. You cannot boot into the factory settings once you have configure your PC/Laptop to your personal settings, but you can boot to "Safe Mode" and use the "Administrators" account to reconfigure other Users settings. To get back to "Factory Settings" you can use the OEM "Recovery CD" or "Recovery function from your Hard drive" depending on the OEM Vendors specifications for your PC/Laptop.

**Take note, All your data will be lost when you reverting your PC/Laptop to factory settings!!!

Hope it helps.

How do you reset a password?


Easy, reset the router itself, should have a tiny pin hole in the back that has a button that you must compress, just google reseting your model.
If you have any problems let me know.
