Okay, look for a small hole in the router about the size for a small pen or paperclip. It may or may not say reset nearby. Use something that will fit in the hole, I usually opt for an unbent paper clip, and press and hold the button inside the hole for a minimum of twenty seconds. I would recommend disconnecting the router from your network and any power sources first. If you still can't find it, just post the model of your router.

I need to recover the pin of my router


You mean the pin code to access your internet? There is a reset button that will reset the password/pin to default, but you have to locate the reset button.

I need the pin number for linksys wrt160nv2 but i only keep getting how to find i dont want to find it i need it. Ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh


I am uncertain what you mean by PIN, but Linksys administrative credentials by default require you to log in to 192.168.1.1 the log in name should be empty and the default password is admin. This is assuming you have not changed this password.
If you have changed it and forgotten it you can reset this by unplugging the router and locating the reset switch on the rear of the device. With a sharp pencil hold the reset button and plug in the device. After you release the switch the device should boot to factory settings and be accessible with the above information.

NOTE: Take note of the exact model number and version of your Linksys device. In this example, the model number of the device is WRT54G v5.

Step 3:
Check the serial number which is located right underneath the model number.

NOTE: The images may vary depending on the model number of your Linksys product. If there is no version number beside the model number it means the device is a version 1.

Reset your router using the reset button so you can configure it back to a new password and security key. The reset button is located in a small hole that only a point of a pen can reach. Press that until all lights are blinking and then you can now reconfigure the router again.

Have lost my 3COM network key number


Hello, welcome to fixya.

If by lost your "network key number" you mean the WEP or WPA key that you setup from the router's settings and you use to connect everytime to that wireless router then I would suggest to push the "reset" button on the device (A small pinhole button usually located in the back or bottom of the device).

Doing this, will reset your wireless device to initial factory settings and so you will know the standard WEP key by then. It is written on a sticker on the device along with the SSID,administration console IP/password and MAC address of the router.
NOTE: Resetting factory settings on your router will cause all settings to dissapear (ports forwarded etc.)and will have to be done from the beginning.

Im pretty sure this will fix this type of problem 98% of the time (unless the nature of the problem is different).

Kind Regards from FixYa.

I forgot my parent controls pin


As far as I am aware, the only way to reset the pin, is to reset the router to factory defaults. You will then have to reconfigure your wireless settings. To reset to factory defaults:
Plug in the router.
1. Locate the small reset button. It is next to the power jack.
2. Use something to push the button, a paper clip works well.
3.Hold the reset switch down for 10 seconds.
4. Wait for the WLAN light to stop blinking. The router is now reset.
To reconfigure the settings on the router, enter 192.168.0.1 into your browser address bar.

How do I retrieve my pin number for my wireless router?


You don't.
You will have to perform a factory reset on the router by pressing and holding the RESET button on the back of the device for approximately 20 seconds.
After this, you'll have to re-configure your router all over again. This time, write down the key/passphrase that you use and keep it in a secure location.
