Re: factory reset of my router

Hello garnett,

First what is the brand of your router? you gave the information on your wireless adapter card but not the router.

Ok, most routers have a reset button push and hold the reset button until the unit goes off and then on again (cycles). This should reset it to factory settings.

Sometimes you may need to press the button once and then press and hold until it resets.

This should allow you to get to a factory default state,

I hope this helps,
Thank you,

Want to change wifi password because I do not want teenage daughter using right now

Changing password on a router is quite simple. Depending on which router you have, the factory login and password might differ.

First you have to log into your router. use

Then you will be prompted for user id and password

login: admin
password: admin
or password

if you are using a verizon router, use

login: verizon
password: password or password1 (when you type the password it will show multiple dots for each character)

if your router has a different password already pre-set then you will have to reset your router. This will change your network name and reset the password to factory setting, like above.

Locate the reset button in the back of the router. While the router is turned on, press the reset button for 10 to 15 seconds and release. The router should now reset. Once it resets, just fallow the steps above. You may also click on the "Wireless" tab and change your network name as well.

Hope this helps.

Perform a Linksys reset:

The easiest method of resetting your Linksys router's password is to reset your router back to the default factory settings. This is done by simply holding down the reset button located on the back of the unit for at least 30 seconds. Once the router has been reset, it must be reconfigured. Using your web browser go to URL address You will then be prompted to login to your router. A log-in screen asking for the password will automatically appear. At this time enter the default password "admin", in lower case letters into the password field. The username field may be left blank at this time. (Note: both the default username and default password are set to "admin" on some of the newer Linksys router models).

Router setup
You do not have to use the cd. Go to the control panel and un-install the program that the cd installed. then:

GENERAL ROUTERS RESETING 1-With the unit on, place a paper clip into the hole on the back of the unit labeled Reset.
2-Hold paper clip down for 10 seconds and release.
3-The unit will reboot on its own. Once the WLAN light stops blinking, the unit is reset.
Resetting the router does not reset the firmware to an earlier version. It will change all settings back to factory defaults

I need my netgear password

Most of the NETGEAR devices, except ReadyNAS products and Fully Managed switches, have the following default username and password:
  • Username = admin
  • Password = password
    • For older devices, password = 1234
If you have changed the default password and have forgotten it, you will need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings in order to use the default username and password. Click here to learn how to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings. Please note: restoring a device to its factory default settings will erase any changes you have saved to the device.

Reset and Restore the NETGEAR device to Factory Default Settings


  • Forgotten/lost password to log into the NETGEAR device
  • Cannot access the NETGEAR device web interface
Click here for video walk through example of how to reset the WGR614v9 router.


If you have changed the default password and have forgotten the password, you may need to reset the NETGEAR device to factory default settings.

When a NETGEAR device resets, it goes back to the state when it was new - all information that was entered by hand is lost! Examples include critical things you need to get online, such as ISP username, ISP password, IP addresses, wireless security keys, and ports and services that were opened. It all needs to be re-entered.
So, have your ISP information before resetting the router.
Naturally, if you moved to a new city, or if you bought a used router, the old information in the router may not be of use to you. Contact your ISP if you can't connect any computer directly to the Internet. Then, if there is a connection problem when the router is added, see No Internet Access Through the Router
Reset for most routers with a reset button on the rear panel
Write down configuration information such as IP addresses, security keys, opened ports and services, etc., that you modified. (The default username is admin and the password is either password or 1234. Try these before resetting the router.)
  1. Press the reset button on the back until the test light blinks. This takes about 10 seconds. (To avoid accidental resets, the small button is recessed. Use a pen or paperclip to access it.)
  2. Release the button.
  3. Wait for the router to reboot.
  4. Log in with the default password. If the router configuration was not cleared, try these additional steps AFTER the router has finished rebooting.
  5. Unplug the router's power.
  6. Press and hold the reset button. While the button is held down, reconnect router's power.
  7. Continue to hold the reset button for 20 seconds after reconnecting the power.
  8. Wait for the router to reboot.
  9. Log in with the default password.
For DGN2000 / DG834Gv5 Routers
To restore the factory default configuration settings when you do not know the login password or IP address, press both the Wireless button and WPS button on the side of the modem router for 5 seconds.
For FR314, FR318, and FV318
These routers require reloading the firmware in order to recover from a lost password. Download the most recent firmware from NETGEAR's Web site before proceeding. Follow the instructions in the manual.
For routers with a 9-pin manager port on the rear panel: RT314, RT311, RM356, RT328, RT338, RH340, and RH348
See Updating Router Firmware That Uses a Manager Port.

Good luck.
