Even after resetting the router with a hard reset. Still no access to the router thru wireless period. Only thru cat5 patch cord.

No there is not a way to just change the password on these devices. If you have changed the password from the default and either forgot it ,or fat fingered it upon entry then you will need to do a hard reset which resets everything. However the config's on these are so simple it shouldn't take longer than 10 min to reconfigure it, especially if you have good documentation!

I lost my access code

If you lost the wireless access key you can find it by logging into your router. Using an internet browser type into your address bar. A login window should pop up. The default login is username: admin password: admin . If these do not work then you need to reset your router to factory defaults. If this does work then look for the place where you can change the key and change it. You may need to reset the router after this for settings to take effect but after that it should work.
To reset to factory defaults, look for a button on the back that says reset. Press and hold this down for 30 seconds. Everything should reset to factory defaults and you should be able to connect without a password.

Log in admin linksys

By default, there is no username and the password is 'admin' without the quotes.

If you are unable to login using those credentials you might consider performing a hard reset. This will erase all settings, so you will have to reconfigure the router.

To reset:
Hold the reset button, located on the back, for 30 seconds
While still holding the button, pull the power cable, wait 30 seconds
Continuing to hold the power button, plug the power back in
After 30 more seconds release the reset button
Let the router sit for a few minutes, then try to login

The above procedure is often referred to as a 30-30-30.

Need to know username and password

If you forgot your router password,you will have to reset the router back to factory defaults and log in using the default password.-->

To restore the factory default configuration settings without knowing the login password or IP
address, you must use the Default Reset button on the rear panel of the router.

Connect to the wireless router by typing or the router's LAN IP

address (default is in the address field of your browser and then press Enter. A
login window opens:.
Enter admin for the router user name and your password (or the default, password).

Where can I find the password/key for my netgear wireless router

Do you mean the key to log onto your wireless network? Plug a computer directly into the wireless router via the ethernet cable and go to or Internet Explorer. I believe one of those default address for netgear routers. Login to the router, the default login is login:admin password:password then select 'wireless settings' on the left and you should see the key.

If any of the default info has been changed and you cannot login, you will need to reset by pressing the reset button for 30 seconds. But you will have to reconfigure the wireless network and reconnect all computers that were previously connected.
