Lost network password which I need to sign on an ipod touch using a netgear dg834gt

Hi ,
i know my network name , but have forgotten the netword password. I use a netgear dg834gt router and my two computers work fine. I have just bout an ipod touch which can connect via wi fi. It shows my network , but I cannot sign on as i have forgotten my password for the network. Netgear suggested using the WEP Key 1 , but that didn't work and now they said i should contact apple which is ludicrous.
On the wireless settings page it says 128 bit encrypted and nothing in the passphrase box.
What should I do?

Key 1 should work in most cases. If you have additional keys listed, try them also.
If none work, turn off encryption and connect your new device, then create a new 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 usual 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 sestets 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.

Configuring Netgear Wireless Routers/Access Points

What do you need to know about configuring routers?
All basic router configuration are almost the same. You can access the router by a specific address. In this case, for NETGEAR router, the default address is

You can access the router configuration page by typing on the address bar of any browsers.
It will then ask for the User name and Password. The
Default UserName is : admin
Default Password : password

Most of the people just want to configure their wireless network and what is the wireless key.
You can check the wireless setting of the router. You will then see the wireless network name or the SSID. You can definitely change that to the wireless network key that you wish to use.
You can also change the wireless key which is your wireless security. There are several types of wireless security. We have WEP, WPA-PSK, WPA-PSK2.

Usually, WEP and WPA wireless encryption are used. For WEP, you can use 10 digits numbers from 0-9 and for WPA-PSK, you can use alpha numeric characters.

It's up to you what to use. You can easily change the wireless key by entering it on the Key1 under the Security Encryption. Just hit apply and you can now use the new wireless network name and key that you just setup..

One tip of advise, don't be afraid to change the settings of the router. Just remember the current settings if you are not that familiar before changing anything. If that doesn't work, just revert the changes. I'm sure, you'll get comfortable on configuring any router in a short time..

Happy configuring.. :)

Its because it got reset accidently and then how would i restore it back again. or can it still be restored back??

Sorry you will have to set it up again

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.

hope this helps

My netgear wireless router has been installed and we can see the wireless connection on our laptops but when it asks us for a password we don't know it-is it the Lan ip or wan ip or is it another password...

I think its asking for the wireless encryption key (WEP) which you will see somewhere on the router itself or you might have to open the router page and check the wireless network settings check for WEP - Password

When my dad updated the router. and now i cant use wifi on my ipod touch all it says is unable to join network can someone please help

Hi Judesbalsamo,

Apprently, when your dad updated the router, he much have enabled some form of wireless security. Either that, or he has changed the SSID name of the router altogther (which shouldnt affecrt muchm, just a change in router name). Either way, you might want to check back with your dad if he has enabled wireless security and get the details from him.

I hope the above information helped. Please do let me know if there are other queires regarding this. Also, pls remeber to vote for me if you find this solution useful. Thank you.

Forgotten password and cant get connected to ipod

Log into the router page not sure of exact make and model of router but if you do the following on a PC
start>run (search box on vista/7) > CMD > ipconfig /all look at the default gateway - should be something like now use that number in an Internet explorer address bar - should give you the router login often the default username and password is admin - but that does vary by make and model then under wireless section you should be able to read the password for wireless OR
it may be that the password is actually printed on the bottom of the router
